Hi everyone

Postby belle10 » Mon Mar 09, 2009 11:44 pm


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. :x 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.

Hi Belle,

I know what it's like to go up and down and to have a large amount of weight to lose but there are many people here with the same demons and we can help each other along the way. Its also very common to put weight on when you settle into a relationship - I think everyone does that. The important thing is that you are now putting yourself and your health first and doing something about it. Well done for taking those steps and best wishes, Alexandra :D
