It's a big shock to discover what you weigh, isn't it? I had a really similar experience- last time I had weighed myself was 110kg, and then I decided I was getting too overweight and went to a dietician - she weighed me and it was almost 140kg! I was horrified.. but even more determined to rid myself of the excess weight!

Optifast is a good option to start with, but make sure you learn lots about healthy eating and start doing some exercise - eventually you're going to have to eat "real food" again and you don't want to put the weight back on! I'm sorry you had such a big "last meal" but maybe the memory of how awful you felt afterwards will keep you from wanting it again soon!

Good luck with your journey, if you need any extra tips or advice feel free to ask specific questions on here, or pm me :)

Hello and welcome :) I'm glad you've found this forum, I've been a part of it for almost a year now and the support has been incredible. I've seen some amazing people perform inspiring transformations on their bodies here.

Try not to look at it like it's a really hard (easier said than done, eh?), because tiny and frequent goals are the key, and I'm sure you'll find like the rest of us that once you start seeing small results, you're so excited that you'll hardly see it as a huge task.

We're all in the same boat, so never hesitate to post about anything. In my opinion daily life has a huge impact on how we became heavy in the first place, why we want to lose weight and how well we stick at it - so if you have something to get off your chest or share then we aren't going to have a go about it being irrelevant :)

:D Looking forward to sharing the journey with you!

Hi, I am in Melbourne too, and when I weighed in at 174kgs, I couldn't believe it either. :evil: :evil: :evil:
I have also tried all the diets, except Tony Ferguson.
Do what others have suggested, and what I also do, I get excited when I lose 5kgs, because when I lose the next 5kgs I am down to another starting number. :D

This is my first major goal.
Next one is to get under 80kgs.
Finally, somewhere around 60kgs.
