Hi guys,
im new and have lost over 30 kilosin the past 2 years and have now gatherd the motivation i need to loose my last 11 kilos and go from 66.0 kilograms to 55kilograms. Im so excisted. I found this site and have read some amazing tips from what seem to be some amazing, really motivated and dedicated fellow dieters. Im happy that i found a site like this thats not only about loosing weight, but about learning and most of all supporting each other through the good and bad moments of loosing weight. :D

Thanks, Mystic;10704;95;1;1/c/66/t/55/s/66/k/3afa/weight.png[/code]

Hi guys, thanks for being so welcoming.
In reply to your question i haven't really been sticking to any particular diet. I really just adopted to eating well. When i was younger you could argue that i danced with the pantry and flirted with the fridge. I was obsessed i lived to eat, not eat to live. I can't really remember what happened i just remember feeling fat, embarressed and annoyed that i let such a thing as food take control of my life. I must admit that only diets that have every actually worked are the ones that i made myself with research and dedication, i tried sureslim and it failed me miserably, i hated being so picky with my food 1/2 a tomato a day, no carrots, fish for breakfast. i tired of it quickly and soon realised i had wasted over $700.

So what i've been doing at the moment for breakfast i eat a piece of toast with a beautiful lemon butter that i learnt how to make from an old recipe book of my mothers (only a teaspoon) it's my daily treat and i wake up craving it, so it's a really good thing for me. I also have a cup of nescafe instant coffee with soy milk (some of you might say how yuck, but if you get used to the taste it really isn't that bad). One thing i have adopted from sureslim is the 5 hours between meals, i guess thats only cause im lazy and can't be bothered making myself snacks :P. Then for lunch which is usually right on 12pm i have a sandwhich with ham, mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomato, pepperonata(which an italian dish similarto a capsicum chutney) -or- barbacue sauce with a little touch of honey (so yummy). And then for dinner i used to have a weight watchers meal that i would pick up from the supermarket freezer, but i've realised that you can't live on those your whole life i've moved on to San Remo lite meal for 1 pasta dishes, with the addition of a protein and some vegetables. Soooo yummy, and only 78c a pack...light on the pocket as well :P.

I used to believe that loosing weight was only physical that it was about what you ate. I soon reaslised that weightloss is 90% mental and 10% physical because without the right frame failure is going to follow quickly.

Thanks guys :)
