I really need a kick in the butt, so is this it

Postby mrs mutt » Tue Jan 31, 2006 8:22 am

Hi, my name is Robyn 49 yrs old and I am currently 78kgs and am looking to get down to around 65. I feel it is a big ask of my body but I am sure that I can a least give it a go. I have to say that even though I am overweight I am still happy and healthy (very rarely do I get ill).
I am at the moment living in Orange but will soon be moving to Wagga Wagga.
Tomorrow I am starting the CSIRO diet or way of eating and I hope that I can at least modify it so that I can stay on it, thare is a lot of food on it that I would not normally eat, so substitution would be the key for me.
Anyone else out there trying this much talked about eating plan?

That's about all for now, I hope to get to know you all in the near future. You really sound like a positive group of people, and congratulations to all who are losers in the fat war. :wink:

Hi Robyn, and welcome to the forum! Many of us on here are trying lots of different approaches to their weight loss journey, so I'm sure someone on here has tried the CSIRO. Substitution is definitely a big thing, particularly if you do eat a lot of junk but be sure you do it SLOWLY!! One food at a time.

I look forward to seeing you in the forum!

Thanks Tegan
Yes I realise that it is going to be a long slow process but I am at that age where I am going through the whole gammut of things what with the change and all so I figure if I can beat the smoking beast (been nicotine free since 2000. A coincidence ?, that is when the weight arrived) then I should be able to tackle this. And I have the full understanding that it came on gradually so it is going to have to leave the same way. Well I can be just as stubborn as it can, and I am going to vow that I won't let it beat me. My 13kgs is on it's way out.

Gday Robyn! I tried the CSIRO diet just after i had my little one and it worked wonders...

Before i became pregant i was 62kg, prior to giving birth, 94kg, about 3 weeks later 87kg and not moving an inch!!! So i did the CSIRO diet and i came down to 76. Ive managed to stabilise that without dieting, but now ive kicked myself into gear again and im just going down the health eating and lots of exercise road. Hopefully in about 6 weeks time i will be 69 kgs - next goal after that is 65.

I definately recommend the CSIRO diet, but you must stick to it vigilantly! Its sometimes hard to limit yourself to only a small amount of meat, but with this diet its imperitive becuase it works through building protien but not over doing it....

Good luck again - looking forward to hearing your reports!

Welcome Robyn

I think Hayley (from the forum) was on the CSIRO Diet although she was talking about changing to the Ultra Lite. Perhaps drop her a line to see how she found it???

Congratulations for staying a non-smoker for 6 years. I reckon if you can give up smoking, you can do anything. I gave up 6 months ago tomorrow, best and hardest thing I ever did. Now I'm trying to reach my next goal - to lose weight and keep it off.

Good luck in your weightloss journey,
catch you in the forum,

Hello Ladies, thank you all for the warm welcome.

I have had some bad news, I went out and bought a new scale (digital) and now I weigh 79.9 kg instead of 78 kg. So I have to fess up, otherwise I am cheating.

When trying out the scales in the shops I jumped on a weight watchers digi scale (floor model) that said I was 69 kg I so wanted to take that one home but hubby convinced me that it was probably fibbing to me, ok so he may be right on occasion, but why does it have to be now.

Day one on my new eating plan went ok, breakfast lunch and salmon steak and salad for dinner. I think I can do this.
:D
I am off to look around the sight now thanks once again for the welcome.
