back on the diet wagon again

Postby bekka » Sun Aug 31, 2008 4:31 pm

Hi all,
I am 21 years old and i weighed myself this morning and the scales read 125kg :shock: .I thought there was no way that could be true so i actually went out and spent a fortune on a new set of scales and this one told me i weighed 126kg so i took it back to the shop. I have been dieting since I was about 14 and nothing has ever worked so my doctor suggested optifast, the meal replacement program. Hopefully this time will actually work and I can lose it for good so fingers crossed! Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

Hi Bekka and welcome to the forum!
My advice, take it slowly, and make changes that you can stick with for life.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

hi guy thanks for the replies. i am only going to be using optifast as a starting point to get myself more accustomed to eating less often and to kickstart my metabolism. i have also started walking for 45 min to an hour daily and been using the gym ball every two days. so far its ok but i guess it has only been like 24 hours lol. good luck with your own journey as well :)
