Time to kick the fat!

Postby wishful1981 » Fri Jun 18, 2010 5:21 pm

Well, its taken me long enough to get here but I'm finally making a difference in my life. Am thankful I've found this forum where I can finally vent how I feel about the journey that is weightloss and how I plan to kick the fat off my butt! :wink:

In July 2009, I weighed 130kg and became so complacent with my weight. I'd hop on the scales, see what I weighed and think, 'oh well I just don't care anymore'.

This all changed a month ago when I weighed myself and decided enough is enough. While I could look in the mirror and think I look perfectly healthy, my body was telling me otherwise. I had become ever so tired and was bursting out of my clothes.

So I started on Friday 28 May and have decided that this time I am going to change my life.

My weight has been as follows since starting:

27/5/2010 127.0kg
2/6/2010 123.0kg
9/6/2010 120.0kg
16/6/2010 120.0kg

This week I haven't lost any weight however I have definitely lost it in my measurements:

Bust:
27/5/2010 124cm
16/6/2010 117cm

UnderBust:
27/5/2010 109cm
16/6/2010 102cm

Belly:
27/5/2010 128cm
16/6/2010 120cm

Hips:
27/5/2010 133cm
16/6/2010 127cm

So I'll just keep going with all the exercise and healthy eating until I get to my next goal: 115kg. I think 1 kg a week is realistic.. lets see....
Running away from 130kg. It was a scary experience. Now to find my way home to 80kg.

Thanks for the words of encouragement! A little encouragement is going a long way... :D

I'm doing three meal replacements a day with Optislim and 2 cups of veggies a day. At first, it was difficult to stay on track but am now on my fourth week and feel like I've developed a habit.

How are you tracking? It looks like you've made quite a bit of progress!! :)

Whatever you are doing is working!

I'm just trying to eat healthy... and i'm working on the exercise side of things.

I think one of my biggest changes was switching to drinking water. I drink 3 litres every day. I used to really like soft drinks, lemonade, coke, pepsi, fanta, creaming soda... you get the idea. Lots of the time i wouldn't drink water at all. Or i would drink supermarket bought juices which aren't that great! Now i make fresh juice with vegetables and fruit, i'm having a glass a day and try to make it mostly a vegetable juice. I also try hard not to eat about 3-4 hours before bedtime.

I've been having a crappy few weeks but i'm getting past that now and moving on. You just have to persist no matter what! One of my issues is that i get really down on myself if i'm not going perfect. I feel like i've blown the whole thing just because i slip up.

It's an emotional journey losing weight! It forces you to face things you may have been avoiding. I'm SLOWLY learning to be kinder to myself. I want to lose a large portion of my weight by the end of the year, but at the same time i am telling myself that it doesn't matter how long it takes, ... as long as i get there in the end!

There's still a voice in the back of my mind saying "You can't do this, you will never get to goal"... "You were just meant to be fat".... i'm working on telling that voice to shut the hell up lol. There's absolutely no reason why any of us can't get to our goal weights. The only person standing in our way is ourselves!

:lol: Sorry for the rant!

What day do you weigh in? I'll check back and see how you are going :)

Don't apologise for giving me tips and hints - its very much appreciated.

Admittedly, I am weighing myself everyday (which I know is bad) but its the only way i can stay on top of it. My official weigh day is wednesdays, so I'll make every effort to update my thread.

What I am struggling from at the moment, is seeing where my fat has fallen from. Other people are noticing it, I'm not.

Give me strength... The weekend is here...

Thanks Sassy.. but you have made amazing progress! I will have to read up on your posts to learn from you ;)

Tomorrow is my weekly weigh in. Weighed myself tonight (I know.. kinda naughty that I'm weighing myself twice a day) but I'm now 118.8kg. Can't remember the last time I weighed this. YAY! :D

Back to update again tomorrow...

***blushing*** Thank you so much for the compliment! OMG my progress is soooo so long and tedious Id say. I started the journey September 2009 I assumed Id be at my goal weight by now unfortunately it was just 2.5months before I took leave for December holiday. I have had ups and downs like you wont believe but I seem to be on track now, trying really really hard to be a success. Atleast December time is still 5 months away hopefully I would have shed another 10;15kilos by then :P lol wishful thinking...

You are doing really really well keep up the good work you can do this!!! And I think we all get curious and keep weighing now and then. I dont think there's much harm in that it can be very motivational and it can also keep you in check! Well done!!! :)

How bad.. whilst I have been weighing myself daily, I haven't checked in to update my weight. Here's my progress thus far:

27/5/2010 127.0kg
2/6/2010 123.0kg
9/6/2010 120.0kg
16/6/2010 120.0kg
7/7/2010 116.5kg

Have definitely seen an improvement in my quality of sleep and general fitness, not to mention the clothes I now fit into. My goal is to reach 115.0kg by July 31. Three weeks should be ample time for me to shed another 1.5kg.
