Hi from me

Postby CopsWife » Tue Oct 17, 2006 11:43 am

Hey there everyone :)

I've always been a big girl. I was at my best when I was 18 and met my hubby, I was a size 14/16 and about 80kgs. That was nearly 7 years ago and I'm now an 18/20 and 112kgs!!
Too much of the good life and way too much junk food!

I started the Success program from Amcal chemist just over a week ago and lost 3kgs in my first week. Last sunday was out 1st wedding anniversary and we went out - I think I blew all my good work in one meal, I haven't weighed myself to see, LOL.

So far I haven't done much exercise as I was either too tired or too self concious to go out.

I work at home as a Nail Technician anf my hubby is a NSW police officer. We don't have kids yet, but this weight loss is to get me healthier so we can start trying. We have two kitties and two rats.

**Not dieting anymore, I'm pregnant**

I'm new the forum to. Everyone has been really welcoming it's great. Hopefully you will find all the support you need to help you reach your goal. I know that you can do it.
I said this on another post but I love your ticker it's so cute.
Anyway I wishing you all the best for weight loss and remember when it gets hard just keep thinking about how much you will gain when you reach your goal. That's what I do....
Expectations are only worth living up to if there your own!!!!!

Hi Shellie and welcome!
I started at about the same weight at you and it is hard...but entirely possible to lose the excess! Hopefully with the support of the forum you will achieve success!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Shellie,

I started at almost the same weight as you and I've come down as far your goal - so I'm living proof that you can & will reach your goal! If ever you need someone to chat to about how difficult it can be at times, give me a yell.
