Hello Again!

Postby Shay » Mon Sep 14, 2009 3:20 pm

Hi all!

I joined a fair while ago but disappeared when i got married and caught up in life. Earlier this year, my grandfather had a sudden heart attack and quadriple bypass surgery, and i gained about 5kgs from that because of no exercise, bad eating and stress. It wasn't the best of times, and my grandpa is a fit man who walks at least 2hrs a day, is in a healthy weight range, and eats well.

After he was hospitalised, i quit the gym because i wasnt going and my eating was pretty much just packets of chips because of their convenience. I only did this for 2 months, but during that time i started to get intense stomach pains. I thought it was my eating so i tried to eat better. It still continued, one time so badly i was hospitalised.

They never found out why, but amazingly it disappeared after i rejoined the gym! I'm too scared to quit now lol.

I got up to 69kgs in june, from about 63kg in march. My aim is to get to 55kg, but anything under 60kg is fine. I want to have kids sometime in the near future and i want to tackle my weight now while i can.

I feel pretty embarrassed when i look at people's bucketloads of weightloss here, and i cant even lose a measley 10kg! :(

The hardest thing is staying away from sweets and also making the effort to prepare meals, with work and uni. I really hope i have enough motivation and support to actually stick through and not just disappear again! :)

Don't feel bad about that...10kg is NOT as measly as it seems. It's a lot number, yes, but any loss is a good loss. The "bucketloads" are lost by people who have quite a bit to lose to start with.

You will get there eventually...I myself have 9.8 (not that I'm counting ;))kgs to go before I reach my goal weight, and I have a feeling it will be the hardest 9.8kg I'll ever lose...but I havn't been 75kg since primary school...so I'm excited.

Keep your chin up and you'll do fine :)
