Hello, need some motivation!

Postby Libbylouloss » Thu Nov 08, 2007 8:54 am

Hi everyone!

I'm Libby, and for the last 2 months I have woken up every morning and said today is the day start losing! Everything is fine with this until late-afternoon, or at night when everyone else in the house is asleep, then I just fall off the bandwagon.

I have had success in the past with weight watchers, but at the moment, I just don't want to spend the money to go to meetings (with Christmas around the corner). I know what I need to do lose weight, and I really want to be able to do it myself, but I need some motivation to stay on track, and somewhere that I can get some ideas, and hopefully some friends to keep me honest!!

Like many people I used to be very thin before having kids! I am currently 67kg and 160cm tall, and I am currently feeling really bad about myself, and very uncomfortable. While I realise in the grand "scale" of things (pardon the pun), that I don't have a lot of weight to lose, I'm really wanting to do something about it now before I'm out of control!

My goal is to get back to 60kg (58kg would be wonderful, but could be out of my reach!), so hopefully with the ideas and support on this forum, a new me could be just around the corner.

Hope to "meet" a few of you on the forum!

:) Hi and WELCOME Libby you have come to the right place I,m doing WW,s but I,m doing it myself at home I can,t afford the meetings either I buy the WW,s mag each month and follow their food plan I,m also going to buy their points calculator they have in the mag so I can work out how many points there are in what I eat.
The people here help me with motivation and advice and heaps of encouragement, you can do it and your goal of 60-58kgs is achievable you just have to want it bad enough. Good luck and take care.

Welcome.. i used to do weight watchers... but i agree, it is so expensive to just get weighed!

What i am doing is planning a healthy food diet and counting calories aswell as including exercise :D

Good luck with everything :D

Hi Libby 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!
