2012 Diet Inspiration

I hate to admit it but it’s that time of year again when weightloss is on my mind. From boxing day I’ve been seeing (or should I say bombarded by) adverts for new celebrity fitness dvd’s and numerous slimming groups and to be honest I don’t know which way to turn.
To make matters worse, I’m not your average dieter. I’m a yo-yo dieter with sudden weightloss or weight gain, the catalyst for which is my Crohns medication, coupled with emotional eating. When I was first diagnosed with Crohns I put on 5 stones (or 70lbs) and then lost it fairly easily when I came off the course of steroid medication I had been prescribed. But my Crohns soon flared and back on steroids I went and once again up went my weight and I’m now back to where I started.
I have continued to exercise during this time but it hasn’t stopped me gaining weight. However, in the next month or so I am stopping my medication again, plus I have set myself some fitness goals for this year (link), so this time I am hoping to lose weight and keep it off for good.
In an attempt to keep up my motivation I found some images and words of inspiration and decided to include them here. If you have a weightloss goal this year I hope you find them equally inspiring.

If you have any weightloss and fitness goals for 2012 I would love to hear about them. Anything from losing a few pounds to running a marathon, we all need a little motivation and support so I hope you will continue to revisit to follow my weightloss journey and to share your advice.
