Do like I do, take the weight lose real slow, I set mine up for two years, and you can lose the weight and eat more "normal" because losing it slow like that allows for more calories per day. Hope that helps ya. Stefanie

Thanks for the kind words.

Aye it has been a big journey for me so far. Hopefully I can stay off the drugs that is very important.

The smoking was all down to me and willpower baby, so I know I have some of that. The only thing with food is I do really like it and it is there to cure all problems with me haha. Not too funny I know.
I also am a big boy with a big stomach/appetite and I dont like feeling hungry when I am genuinely hungry! So I just have a munch and think "tommorrow I will eat more healthily"

That tommorrow becomes the next day and then the next.......


Ach what can you do!

Sam

Welcome to the team Sam. I wish you the very best. You have made some wonderful accomplishments in your life as of recent. Be careful not to expect to much too soon. You are taking on a lot of changes at once, but if you have the determination to quit drugs, and smoking, I have NO doubt that this weight thing will be (pardon the pun) a piece of cake. LOL Theres also a group I belong to called no more smoking (just over a year for me-my 4th quit) if you'd like to check that out. Just wanted to let you know you are doing wonderful, and keep up all the good work. Don't hesitate to ask if you need help. Stefanie

Hi i posted this on the main introductions board, but i'm high maintenance and going to put it here as well :)

So. I've discovered this site at almost 2am, and it has told me to introduce myself, so here goes!


Hi i'm Sam and I am 23 years old. I live in England. I was born in London and, through certain circumstances, I am now living in Plymouth

I am 6' 3" tall and have a BMI of about 33. So that is clearly no good.

I have been overweight as long as I can remember, apart from about 4 or so years ago. I was heavily into drugs and put myself on a "hardly-eat-at-all diet, just do lots of (illegal) drugs to control the hunger"

I mean, the weight loss was not the reason for doing the drugs, that was just a 'pleasent?' side effect.

At one stage I weighed about 12.5 stone, now I am about 19 stone.

I have only recently put the drugs down, but I know that was very important. I am 6 months sober and have been through Rehab. Please don't judge me for this.

Anyways back to the point I know I eat to fix my feelings, and also when I'm bored. This really has to be controlled if i'm going to slim down.

I have never done exercise properly since school. I think I went to the gym about 6 times in a month about 4 months ago, but that soon stopped!

I have quit smoking, after 14 years, for 6 weeks now. I know this is not a long time, but it is a massive thing for me, now I am going after the weight.

I don't know what I am expecting from all this writing, but I haven't minded writing it, maybe you won't have minded reading it

Thanks for listening

Sam
