Jumped off the wagon and ran the other way

Postby opal630 » Sun Nov 04, 2007 1:18 pm

So I'm starting all over again, when I was 20 I weighed 88 kilos and I spent a year eating right and excersing daily, managed to get down to 54 kilos.

Fell off the wagon shortly after meeting my goal after getting married, gradually put it all back on plus about another 14 kilos. Lately work has taken over my life and left me with no time for myself. Just got back from a holiday and have decided to reclaim my own time and get back into exercising. Starting off with walking the 8 ks home from work at least 3 times a week.

I turn 30 next year so I would really like this year to be the year I do something about my weight.

Thanks for the welcomes, looks like a very friendly site here. It's refreshing to be able to own up to one's weight.

I figured out how to get that weightloss tracker thingy on my signature, how do you show your weight on it as well? I look like I'm starting off at 0 and working my way to 42...

Hi Opal and welcome to the forum!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
