Hello =)

Postby Rachel85 » Tue Mar 18, 2008 10:53 pm

I'm new here so thought I would introduce myself before I posted anywhere else.

My name's Rachel, I'm 22 years old and a mother to 2 girls. My eldest daughter is 2 and a half years old and my youngest is 4 months old. I joined this forum because it seems like it has a lot of great people on here and I need the support and motivation to lose weight. My lowest weight is 80kgs, then I went to 100kgs after having my first daughter and then 112kgs after my second daughter. So far I've only lost 6kgs so I'm down to 106kgs. My height is 5'9 so my weight evens out more, but I really want to lose a lot of weight so I can finally have confidence and being happy with myself. My first goal weight is to get back to 80kgs and then after that hopefully get down to between 60kgs and 65kgs. I started doing Weight Watchers today because I already had the books from when I joined 2 years ago. So hopefully by doing that, exercising each day and coming on this forum daily I can start losing weight and seeing some change in myself.

Anyways that's enough about me, I really hope I can meet some new great people on here. xo

Hi Rachel,

i had a little boy 3 months ago and i lost the first 15 kilos in 2 weeks (most of it was just water from the pregnancy) it took me 3 months to lose 5kgs, but i gotta admit i wasnt trying very hard. actually i wasnt trying at all.. I'm trying to get to my goal weight of 55kgs and i'm 70kgs now.. im going to work really hard to lose 10 kilos by May cos i start back at work and need to be able to fit into my suits again.. i had a friend who was about 100kgs after giving birth but she is very short about 145cm so it was alot of weight and she has managed to lose half of her body weight and is now about 50kgs.. i dont think she did it in a good way as she lost it all in 6months. mind you she has never been 50kgs in her life (well apart from when she was a kid i guess)so im sure she'll probably put it back very quickly.. you said you lost 6kgs thats a good start.. keep at it and one day in the near future you'll get to your goal weight.. Good luck keep in touch!!
