Little Miss Greedy

I live in the UK and I'm a 42 year old mother of one beautiful daughter. I've had a problem with food/weight for much of my life and could very easily comfort-eat 24/7. I've had type 2 diabetes for a few years, which has slowly been getting more serious as I haven't really cared about myself and have carried on eating lots of junk. I've been warned that it's now life-threatening. I need to take control of myself, lose weight and eat in a much more healthy way. I started my journey on 27th ...
I live in the UK and I'm a 42 year old mother of one beautiful daughter. I've had a problem with food/weight for much of my life and could very easily comfort-eat 24/7. I've had type 2 diabetes for a few years, which has slowly been getting more serious as I haven't really cared about myself and have carried on eating lots of junk. I've been warned that it's now life-threatening. I need to take control of myself, lose weight and eat in a much more healthy way. I started my journey on 27th August 2013 and I weighed 19st 6lbs (272lbs). I decided I needed a complete break from conventional food and started following the Exante meal replacement diet (VLCD). So far I haven't cheated at all and in 3 weeks I have lost 18lbs :) I feel healthier and have even started walking a few times a week.
My ultimate goal is to be fit and healthy, and to be able to run a 5k in Spring next year. My teenage daughter is helping and supporting me all the way :)

You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead. I believe in you and now it is time for all of us to believe in ourselves. Let's make this the month we really FLY!

emoticon In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
