In need of some motivation

Postby e&me » Fri Oct 22, 2010 4:10 pm

I have been yo-yoing for about 12 months now after losing 27KG over 2 years since I had my son. I got down to as low as 71kg then back up to 80kg and have been hovering in between there ever since and AM SICK OF IT! I just want to finally reach my goal of 65kg. I keep trying different weight loss methods but none have been successful, so have vowed that I wont try another fad diet- its all about healthy eating and exercise from now on! Which is easy enough, I love my fruit and veggies, But I have trouble stopping! and I snack badly even when I am not hungry.

So anyway, I think I now just need support and people to talk to who know how I am feeling. So hope to chat to a few members

Welcome to the forum!

A good lace to start is to work out WHEN and WHY you eat so you can work out a plan to deal with those problems. A good way to start is with a food diary if you haven't already. Knowledge is power remember! Good luck with it, and hopefully this forum helps.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi there, I see that we have a similar amount to lose, and are aiming for a similar goal. I'm feeling now at the end of week 3 of my weight loss journey that I too need some support and motivation. I've found this forum a great place to come and talk about things, and get perspective on my experiences. So welcome, and let's do this together! :)

I too struggle for motivation. I always go the easy quick option for meals rather than the time and effort healthy meals and I am never exercise (even though I made my family by me a treadmill two years ago for christmas!)

However, I do want that to change! I want to be happy with myself and lead a healthy life.

My partner and I have started cooking from the CSIRO book. We did that once and we both lost a few kilos without even exercising. However, my goal is that I am going to exercise 30 mins every - whether it being walking, gym, wii fit, or even being in the garden. I want to ensure that the exercise that I do is fun, otherwise motivation will not come/stay.
