Hi guys, hope you're all well. Great forum!
I used to be a runner. I used to weigh 12 1/2 stone. I used to be able to sprint 100 metres in 13 seconds.
That was 3 years ago. I'm now 30 and weigh 18 stone 8lb. There's no sugar coating it; I've got fat, settled and too ''comfortable'' at home overeating, drinking lots of pints and doing no excercise.
I'm no stranger to dieting. I was possibly the worlds' most classic example of a yo-yo dieter. One time you'd see me I'll be thin; the next you'd see me I'd be fat. And it goes on.
Well last week I started back on the lonely road to a healthy weight. I started the Atkins Diet and things seem to be going well. I am sticking to the plan like a hawk: low carbs, high protein.
In addition to this I have been walking up to 2 hours a day, sometimes longer, mentally preparing myself for my own running programme in a month's time after the Atkins ''Induction'' phase is over and I slowly experiment with foods.
I am sort of sad in a way. I know I can lose the weight as I'm determined to do it; but why did I choose to put the weight back on in the first place? I, sadly, can't answer that.
Anyway thanks for reading.
