My name is Belle and I am 29 years old.
My weight loss battle began in 2002 when I developed pcos and gained an enormous 55 kilos over a period of 5 years. To be honest not all of the weight gain was due to pcos. In 2004 I met the man of my dreams and felt so happy that I let myself go quite a bit. It's funny, you would think meeting the person that you consider to be the one would encourage you to be the best person you can be in every way. Unfortunately for me I went the opposite way.
In 2007 I started my first weight loss journey and lost 30 kilos. It was hard work but the rewards were far greater then the effort. Then Christmas came and I thought it was a perfect opportunity for a break.......big mistake.
Six months later I had put all the weight back on plus 2 kilos. Finally in August of last year I started again. This time I lost 21 kilos but once again Christmas came and well I guess you can imagine what happened. The only good news is that I didn't gain all the weight back this time. I have started my third weight loss program a week ago and so far so good.
I feel like I have learnt alot from the first 2 attempts and are hoping that this time I can reach my goal weight and never look back.
Anyway that's me. Look forward to chatting with you all during my weight loss journey.
