Hi - New around here....

Postby justjosie » Mon Nov 29, 2010 12:26 am

Hi Everyone.

My name is Josie and today I've started to start the journey to a new me.

I'm sure I'm like most of you on here and have tried all sorts of dieting in the past - have had a little bit of success but it's never lasted. This time I'm thinking NO quick fixes and am opting for the good old regular exercise and healthy diet route (how old fashioned right!). So - no shakes, no starving myself, no pills (I've always been a sucker for a quick fix....).

Looking forward to reading some of the conversations on here, getting to know you all, offering and receiving support.

I've got 21kgs to go.....

Best of luck to all reading this!

Just started a new blog. Drop by and say hi! ---->

G'day and Welcome Josie

You've made the first big step on that journey to health and fitness by finding your way here. The place is full of inspiration, motivation and knowledge.

I'd say make yourself a plan - a road map to your destination. List the foods to eat, the quantities to eat and the foods to avoid. Find modes of exercise that you are comfortable with. Have targets along the way so that you can feel proud of your progress and know that you are getting closer to your goal.

Now get to it! :D

End of March - 119kg - 118.7 - made it!

End of April - 115kg
End of May - 111kg
End of June - 107kg
End of July - 103kg
End of August - 99kg
End of September - 95kg
End of October - 91kg
End of year - 81kg TARGET WEIGHT - Optimistic

Hi Josie! Great to see you here.
I love your attitude to it now. The weight didn't get on there overnight so it's not going to go over overnight either!
All the best to you.
