Good work Karen. Just think this is just the start of a wonderful new you! 8)

Mini goals are great drivers for success. During my weight loss although my ultimate goal was always there, my chief concern was reaching small achievable goals each week. Every week I had something marked down for me to reach for...whether it was a percentage of my weight loss, 5 or 10 kilo milestones lost, fractions of my body weight loss...even round numbers in pounds (ie 50lbs) converted into kilos. Anything that I could find that gave me those small victories along the way to the ultimate victory.

Good start Karen...keep going! :D

I am definitely going to have to jot down some rewards. Hubby and I thought of a great sort of reward for when i've lost the weight. I don't wear my eternity ring anymore as it's too tight with my engagement and wedding rings, so it will be such a lovely reward to be able to wear that again :D I was 56kgs when we got married! It's a wonder my rings fit at all anymore!

I am a shortie, only 5 foot 3. Hubby is 6 foot 5 and he used to weigh around 112kg, which isn't hugely overweight for that height, but he wanted to get into the healthy weight range again, so last year he lost over 20kg and is now around 89kg. He looked so different. He just made the decision to lose weight and did, lol. And here I am, have been trying for years! He has been able to keep it off as he keeps an eye on it and goes to the gym 2-3 times per week.

funny thing the men seem too do it so easy they just tend too put there mind too it,my husband the way he eats and never seems too change drives me insane but in all honesty he really doesn't stop...always fluffing around with something..:-)

My hubby is a motor mechanic so he is active during the day. My job is fairly active on my busy days being a support worker but I only work Weds, Thurs and Fridays. Which does remind me, I need to do my 7 minute workout today. I just encouraged hubby to go to the gym, he wasn't going to tonight but if he doesn't go tonight, he will only get a chance to go once this week. He usually enjoys it when he gets there.

I got to the stage where my wedding ring was worn on my little finger...and getting to where it was so tight that I would soon have to consider putting it on a chain and wear it around my neck instead. As I lost weight, the ring would became loose on my finger and I would have to transfer it to a bigger finger. I got so successful at it that the ring stayed on my wedding finger for a few weeks before I had to shift it to my middle finger. I can now put my ring on every finger of my hand (including my thumb) where once only the small one could fit (with effort). So believe...it is possible!

The difference between men and women? Perhaps (speaking in broad stereo types)...men don't change for change sake...ever tried to throw out some old clothes your guy has worn for years or noticed that when he buys new clothes he is lamenting that they don't make any more the old style that he likes? But once a man is seized with the need for change...he just does it. Hard to get him to move...but once moving - don't get in the way! :lol:
With women, I think they like choices and because there are so many things to choose from that sometimes all those choices overwhelm them and side tracks them from following a course right to the end. Just an idea...but weight loss research now show that EVERYONE is having trouble losing weight nowadays.

I think you are right Kim :lol: I believe women are thinkers, we think too deeply into things.

Oh I think men are thinkers too...just that they ponder too long! :lol:

One day I went outside,
With pencil and paper by my side,
To find the answer to the questions;
Was my quest - the questions!
And there I sat upon the log,
A ponder...upon the...a ponder.
