I'm a 37 year old male, and have been struggling with my weight since my early twenties.
In that time, I have never considered myself a "fat person". I have always thought of my weight as being a temporary condition: that I was a slim person who was just going through a phase. Well, after ten years of that I recently started to accept myself as being a "fat person", and that was something of a wake-up call.
I did actually have some good success at losing weight in my late twenties: I basically did slimfast and calorie counted. I managed to get myself into the low 190's in that endeavour. A significant life change put a stop to it.
Since then I have crept back up again and despite a few half-hearted attempts at controlling my eating I have found myself at my current highest ever weight. I am not proud.
However, the willpower is back: I can tell. This time it's for real. I have a long way to go, but I am going to do it!
Oh, and I'm English, so if my spelling seems a bit weird at times, that will be why. :)
