New to Australia & on a Weight Loss Journey

Postby MelbourneT » Thu Mar 26, 2009 12:07 pm


I am new to Australia (immigrated here 6 months ago). I have started my weight loss journey and was excited to see this forum.

I currently weight 74.4kgs, I started my journey at 79.8kgs in January. Most of the weight I have lost (4kgs) has been in the last month.

I am currently using Admin Censored (and I PROMISE i am not a seller or distributor - I buy it on E-Bay). My friend recommended it as you get supplements / vitamins with it. I take the shakes for breakfast and lunch. For dinner I am trying to eat low GI foods but think I still need to cut out some of the carbs and eat more veggies. I am working on this.

I am enjoying the shakes and am starting to see changes not only in my body but also my mind. I have had to learn to have self discipline (which I don't always get right) but I am gettting better at having self control which I believe has been a HUGE part of my weight gain problem. I know I also eat emotionally - happy, sad, bored.

I am feeling very motivated as since loosing this little amount of weight I fit into jeans that were too tight to zip up and also my body seems to be functioning better (eeks).

I really want to prove to myself that I am worth taking care of and also make my husband proud of me. I wish to not worry about covering up all the time, I want to feel confident and go out feeling and knowng that I look good but most of all that i am healthy and that my body is being looked after.

I hope to check in on the forums daily and reach my goals with the support of others who are also on the same journey.

Hello, are you doing any exercise? you didn't mention any. Eating healthy wont get you far unless you do some exercise.
