14.9kg to lose - starting NOW!

Postby Miss Jo » Tue Jun 09, 2009 3:45 pm

Hi guys,
I have just found this forum and WOW some of the weight that has been lost by the members are incredible!

I am 24 years old, female, 1.65cm tall, and currently weigh 69.9kg.

I need to lose 14.9kg, to get to my final Goal Weight of 55kg - hoping to get this done by the end of the year! which gives me around 28weeks! (approx 500gm per week) I am giving myself a longer period of time because in the past I have tried diets and everything else, when no results show soon after starting I give up and put on more weight.

I have also joined Calorie King and they recommend I eat 1320 cals per day! I am into martial arts and do this approx 3 times a week, and plan to walk at least half an hour on the days I don't train (hopefully I can keep it up in the cold Melbourne weather)

My question to those who have lost weight - HOW DID YOU DO IT? and HOW DID YOU STAY MOTIVATED?

I will definitely be using this forum to keep on track and hopefully some of the members will help kick my b*tt into shape!

I look forward to reading other members posts on their triumphs :)

Jo

Hi Jo and welcome to the boards :D .

I think your goal is completely do-able and the fact you have signed up with Calorie King is a definite added bonus, I always keep track of my food there.

I don't know how I have manged to stay on track and motivated because believe me there are days I have struggled, particularly lately. I guess at the start my motivation was to just get out and away from what I was, failing wasn't an option and now my motivation is the weight that I have already lost and the fact there is now a light at the end of the tunnel.

Best of luck with your goals and see you around the boards :D .

The bulk of it came off in the first few months, a combo of under eating and the amount that I had to lose, now it is more slow and steady.

No real secrets really just exercise, eating reasonably well (I'm the first to admit my diet is far from perfect). I allow myself something sweet each night to avoid cravings and I very rarely have a blow out.

That's a great idea to allow something sweet each night... coz i know if i said no to all sweets, i'd more likely have a breakdown, binge and forget the diet!

What kind of exercises did you do Shalimar?

Lots of walking and Wii Fitting and I just bought a push bike on Friday, I have only been out on it once so far but it will be a once a week thing at least until the weather warms up.

To be completely honest I don't really know. He says well done each week when I have lost weight or fit into a smaller size piece of clothing but I have a feeling he preferred me as I was although he said he is fine with me being either way. Could be wrong I'm not sure.
