I’ve had problems with my weight for pretty much as long as I can remember. Finally in 2011 I decided that I really had to do something about it. It took me 3 years but I managed to loose 25lbs, you might think thats a long time, because yes it is. But I managed to loose all that weight while also growing a considerably sized cyst. When I had that cyst removed I lost 50lbs, this was in the space of about 2 weeks. As a way to loose weight it worked brilliantly. However I ended up putting all that weight back on again.
Now I’m back at basically where I started and I’m finding it so much more difficult to loose anything. Before I had that operation I was really quite active. I would walk a mile and a half to work, work on my feet for 8 hours then walk back home again. All I had to do was eat less fast food and I lost weight. Now I pretty much can’t exercise. I walk every day but for nowhere near as long as I once could. And this now means I have to loose weight entirely by watching what I eat.
This is actually really difficult. But I think I’ve finally cracked it. I’ve now worked out how much I can eat so I will loose weight and also eat enough that I’m not hungry all the time. I should probably also say that I have not cut anything out of my diet, I just eat less of it. But its working. For the last 2 months I have been steadily loosing 1 pound a week. I just wish I was able to do something to make it go faster.
