Lose weight or die!

Weight - 245.8lbs ( -24.2lbs)
Exercise - I tried some wishful shrinking instead...

I am struggling today. I struggled with the fast this time and think I came off it to quick - the result of this was a very uncomfortable digestive situation (don't make me spell it out!)...

I think i need inspiration, I know what I want to do and I know why I am doing it and I can see from you all out there, that my situation is neither unique nor exceptional. Nevertheless, I need a kick up the arse to get me going again.

I found it at the font of all knowledge, The British Broadcorping Castration ! Whilst browsing their excellent health website I stumbled upon this little gem (see graphic below).


Not that is what I call motivation, a whole hospital full of illnesses and ailments, all because we like the smell of donuts too much!

If anyone else is struggling with motivation and felling down for any weight related reason - think about it - is a pizza worth TEN extra years on this planet?? I think not.

Time for a salad and a brisk walk!

aww, sorry your fast didn't work as well as you liked. Have you looked at trying more of a detox diet thing for a few days, more food but it'll flush all the bad stuff out.

My wife has just bought a huge book about detox (recipes and info) and I may just have a crack at that. Thanks for the suggestion!

You know that you are being an inspiration for me. I say that I'm being your "cheerleader," but I've also started on an eating strategy (I refuse to call it a "die"-et.) I'll talk about it when I have finished "Wave 1" IF it is successful. I've been stuck at the same weight for a loooong time (stress and menopause are conspiring against me). If this works for me then it might be worth a look.

Your dedication to improving your health is great! I come from a family full of cancer and diabetes - diet and exercise are essential to your future :) I wish you the best.

Fatblokethin, you should pat yourself on the back for losing 24 pounds. That's fantastic. My husband lost 25 pounds and looks like a new man. Thanks for visiting my TT,

Thanks for all your kind words. Creating this blog has relaised focussed my mond and what I need to do - if it helps anyone else along the way so much the better but that wasn't the intention.

Shelly, I am very impressed to hear that you have a project in mind! I look forward to reading about it soon. Remember you inspired me to pursue this project and were the first to welcome me to the blogosphee (sounds like the Oscars now...)- but anyway you know what I mean.

Best of luck and thanks for all the positive words. Restores my faith in humanity.

Hi Shauna, you're welcome. Chippie? You sound like you've been here for ever!

I'm trying to lose a bit of weight too and have tried fad diet after fad diet after fad diet (you get the picture) each time I have given up and found the cakes again!

In my experience it's just trying to find something that you enjoy doing and can stick to.

Don't worry if you fall off the diet wagon, just put it in the past and jump back on!

Thanks for the comment on my site, hugz

Well. I don't like that picture one bit. I don't. But it definitely puts things in perspective.

i'm very proud of you...so many of us leap at the very opportunity to do ourselves harm...when, instead we should be leaping at the opportunity to do ourselves well...

you are an inspiration to all..
