Hey guys :)

Postby Juddy » Sat Nov 17, 2007 1:54 am

I was actually surprised to find this forum actually. I was looking for gym forums and fitness/exercise forums and BAM here I am :)

I will give the brief weightloss background story:

I'm 20 years old and have been overweight all my life. I was obese until about the age of 16 where I peaked at a body fat percentage of approx. 40%

I did Atkins for a couple of months and was down to an "overweight" state when I stopped doing it. I gradually put the weight back on until the end of 2005 where I then lost 19 kilos in 2 months.

Since then I've kept most of the weight off, but never was quite happy with myself... but recently I've started to make new progress so I'm back on track - but I'll go into that in another thread :)

Thanks guys!
Juddy

Hi Juddy and welcome to the forum. Congrats on the weightloss to date - 19kg in 2 months sounds a bit extreme, but it's great that you've been able to maintain it. See ya round the board! :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Thanks a lot guys :)

Yeah I wouldn't recommend losing that amount of weight in a short period of time... but let's face it, people often do things out of desperation because they have self-image issues. I was so obsessed about losing weight before schoolies, that I was going to work as hard as possible.

Even know I'm not entirely happy - but I'm at least eating healthy, exercising and not starving myself, which is what most people should do because I've gotten better results being on a good diet.

Thanks matchbox :)

I read a bit of your blog, got to love people's teasing eh?

As much as I hate people bullying others, I have to admit that it would have taken longer for me to get ontop of my situation and start to lose weight if I hadn't been.

hey juddy, yeah i guess it does help some people, but for me it really did more harm than good. i got a "talk" from my mum to tell me i was too fat pretty much - after this though i decided to rebel any thoughts of healthy food/exercise and probably put on more weight lol. i knew in my mind i needed to do something (stress!) but i didn't need anyone pressuring me to do anything. i hate being pressured (unless it's for an assignment, best results are the day (or night) before :wink: hehe) so it really didn't help me though lol. although i hate it now how my family try and buy me junk food :roll: i said no to red rooster tonight, and only had 1 donut the other day :D (not all 6 in the pack) haha

Yeah I hated being bullied. I was beaten up a couple of times in the change rooms by someone who had a big problem with my weight when I was much younger (funny how he has issues with MY weight :P).

One of my uncles used to always give me a hard time about my weight. My grandpa made a comment once, but only once and he realised how unhelpful it was. Friends would also pay me out - so much that I refuse to take my shirt off in front of them... meaning I haven't gone to the beach with them before, even now that I'm much thinner!

Bullying causing psychological damage, that's for sure. But what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger :)


Oh and OMG! Your family does that too?! My dad told me the other day "I'm concerned that you're not eating enough" - this really made me angry. Everytime we are to sit down and have dinner "together as a family" this makes me scream inside "NOOOOO!" because they'll serve way too much food and get all defensive if I don't eat all that's on my plate.

I don't understand why people often have massive plates of food for dinner... same with Christmas. I like to eat bits and pieces over a few hours than a massive piled-up plate of food. Smaller meals over a longer period of time is much better than one large meal.
