Hi Everyone!

I am Temeeka, I am 24 & I Live in Brisbane, with My Almost Hubby Terry & Our 2 beautiful Kids, Jordan(3) & Tirralea(2).

I am currently Looking for work after 3 yrs of Being a SAHM(yey)
I go to gym 3 nights a week & Swim 3 Mornings a week.
I'm also studying Cert 3 In Fitness to be a Fitness Instructor Nxt yr :)

My Story-

so, i grew up a Swimmer, for 12 Yrs I did that & By the time I was 14 I was swimming 5 hrs a day & Gyming 4 a Day. I did that till i was 18.

At 19 I Met Terry & Was still ok, till at 20 We fell pregnant with Jordan & I made the mass mistake of Putting on 30kgs.
I lost pretty much all of it after I had him, But 8 wks after having him, we fell preg with Tirralea.
I only put on 9 kgs with her Luckily!

As we sit I am at the 68 Marker(am only 163 cms)
We are getting married in 8 Months & My aim is to be back down to 58 Kilos!

So I need 10kgs in 8 months, & because I am little in height & have Pcos, it isn't so easy!

Need some more motivation from people, so hope you can all help :)

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi Temeeka 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!

Hello and welcome

Wow......studying Cert 3 In Fitness to be a Fitness Instructor Nxt yr? Will you be working towards being a personal trainer? or Instructor? Sorry, I know nothing about these courses. However, I am sure you will do very well!

Married in 8 months.....that's fantastic!

I look forward to reading about your weight loss progress.......I know you will reach goal weight!

Oh, good luck with job hunting.......I found really helpful when I was looking for work. What type of work are you looking for?

Have a great day!

Bit of a crappy Feeling atm, But We will get there :)

As for the weightloss thanks for the Gr8 Replies!
