Hi all, I'm here to lose 9kgs!

Postby Janeyc1983 » Tue Apr 14, 2009 5:13 pm

Hi all,

I am new here and my goal is to lose 9 kilos - my goal weight is 65kg - by my birthday September 1.

I am a size 12, 178cm and 74kg - so while not technically overweight, I am at the higher end of the healthy range and over the past 5 years or so have packed on 8-10kg - a product of working sedentary jobs, drinking and eating out a lot and just general laziness. I am not happy with the way I look, I find I don't want to wear nice clothes or go to the beach anymore, and have come to the conclusion I need to make a huge effort to shift these kilos that are holding me back.

Exercise is not such a problem for me is my diet and binge eating. I eat very little, or nothing during the day (as I am so busy at work) and by the time I get home am ravenously hungry, so will think nothing of devouring a whole packet of rice crackers and container of dip, or a packet of chips, or 12 biscuits and then crackers with cheese.

I exercise regularly, have just completed one boot camp (am starting another next week) but know i need to do more, 45 mins 6 days per week is my aim. When I get into the groove I find exercising comes easily to me, but it also makes me hungrier.

Anyway I look forward to working with you all!

Jane ;)

Welcome to the forum Jane!

It's great that you've identified your main problem with gaining weight. I know that if I skip eating during the day I end up even more ravenous at night. Is there any way you can make sure you eat at work? Even having some cut fruit at your desk may help.

I know that low intensity exercise makes me very hungry, whereas high intensity exercise suppresses my appetite a bit. However if you're finding that boot camp made you hungrier I don't think increasing intensity is going to help much.

Good luck! I hope you enjoy your next boot camp.

I think it's great that even though you are at a good weight you still want to improve yourself. Good luck
