Well i have decided to loose weight! 60KG to go!

Postby Jasminena » Thu Oct 15, 2009 4:48 pm

Hi all I hope i'm writing this in the right place. Sorry if i'm not Mod please feel free to move it....

I am from SOR of Perth WA
I'm a 29yo Female who seriously needs to loose some weight.
I'm a mother of 2 kids. We would like more but i need to drop the pounds first.
I weight ruffly 120kg's and i'm 5'7 - apparently i need to drop 60kg's :shock: :shock: *my hole husband as that is about what he weighs* :oops: . :wink: lol

Anyway I can't afford to Join a gym or anything like that I have decided to calorie count as i already eat fairly healthy and drop my portion size all while doing some exercise even if it's just dancing around the living room with my kids or taking long brisk walks.

I have decided to put this all up on a public forum so i have some great advice and motivation from other like myself. This also makes me accountable for my actions. I may eat healthy but i don't think my portions are right and i know i don't exercise anywhere near enough. As of tomorrow i will keep a photographic food diary for 7 days so i can track what a normal day/week is like (photo's don't lie or forget!) then i will change it for the better. ie better portions I will also do this with my exercise - this one will have to be written though.

Has anyone done it this way? Do you have any advice? any thought would be appreciated!

Still working my way around this place...

Hope to read some stuff about you all soon.

Wish me luck!

Hi Jasminena,

I've been here almost two weeks and have found everyone to be really supportive. The great thing about this place is that everyone is in the same boat and knows what it's like.

Welcome!

Daisy.

That is a good idea i think.

With my son who is now 18 months old i found it really hard being pregnant. Not like when I had my daughter who is now nearly 6 - her pregnancy was a lot easier to go though as I was only about 75ks when i had her. With my boy i was what i am now the dr's kept writing "M - OBEASE" on my notes, made me feel bad, & every time you spoke with one of them they were "are you seeing someone about your diet?"

I told my Hubbie then that I wanted to lose weight before having another baby. he has been REALLY supportive! :mrgreen:

& Thank you for the warm welcome Shay!

Just wanted to say hello and welcome!

You sound like you have a great plan of attack, nice and sensible and also sustainable.

Portion control is my downfall also, just get into the habit of weighing everything and you'll learn heaps!

You can do this!

Hi Jas,

Welcome to the forums :)

It sounds as though you've got a pretty healthy plan set out - all the best! I have lost weight so far by just monitoring what I'm eating, and trying to exercise when I can. I don't think there are any 'secrets', it's all about consistency. If you have a bad day, just put it behind you and realise that won't day won't mess up your healthy eating plan, but getting upset and bingeing for days will. Just try and make the healthiest food choices you can, and in the end, it will eventually pay off!

Thank you - that's exactly what i have been doing. nothing special a bit of exercise and in 2 weeks i've lost nearly 5kg.s not bad i reckon.

I have only started "changing" what i've been eating the last two and a bit weeks. so far so good!

good luck on continuing on your's too.
