Hello to you

Postby summergirl » Mon Nov 12, 2007 10:12 pm

Hi all,

I have been a lurker here for quite awhile, about as long as I have been wanting to lose wieght.

I want to use this site to keep my motivation high in the weight loss stakes as well as make some new cyber friends.

so how much do I have to lose.......

tonight the scales say exactly 95 kilos and my goal weight is for starters 69 kilos so thats 26 kilos (man that is heaps)........

My first question is what day to you weigh yourselves in the weekly weigh in!

Look forward to saying hi to you all.
Regards Pam

I wish it was summer all year round

welcome and my weigh in days Tuesday, just in case I have an off weekend, I figure maybe Monday gives me a bit of leeway to work some more off :? good luck

Thanks for that. I was wondering if the group weigh in does it on a certain day or do you pick your own day?

I am currently doing this at home on my own... :)

Hi Pam and welcome to the forum.

There is no set day to do a weigh in - people weigh in and record their weight any time during the week, so it's up to you to pick the day :)

All the best for your weightloss journey
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hi, welcome aboard!

Don't think of it as 26kg to lose.. you'll get disheartened and start thinking that you'll never get there! It's good to break it up into mini-goals, say 5kg at a time. That way, it's achievable, you can reward yourself along the way, and before you know it, you're 5kg away from your long term goal! :D

I weigh in on Fridays, because that gives me the maximum time during the week to make up for the weekend! :)
