Hi everyone :D

My names Sam.
I'm a 20yr old correspondance student and Mum to Alexandra (2).
I put on about 25kgs during my pregnancy and havent loss ANY of it :cry:
I recently joined my nearest 'Curves' and so far havent lost any weight but have lost about 1cm of my 'bits'.. fingers crossed it speeds up a little :P (although i'm pretty lazy :oops: )
My goal is to drop from my current weight of 85kgs to 58kgs..3kgs less than my pre-baby weight.
Only time will tell :!:

My Allyboo is my world!

Hi Sam and welcome to the forum!! I wish you all the best on your weight loss journey...I look forward to seeing your progress!! Exercise is an important part of any weight loss program, so laziness will have to be a thing of the past!!! Once you get into a regular exercise routine you will wonder how you ever did with out it, just remember to start off slow and build up!! You can do this!!

Hello Sam and welcome to the forum.

I started out at 85kgs and now I am no longer there...can hardly believe it if you stick with your plan and focus you will get there. Get into a routine with your exercise, I was a serious couch potato and now I love exercising, day's just not right without it. If you have a personal trainer or coach there, listen to what they say and try your best to implement what you can it really can make a difference.

Sing out if you have any questions.

All the best on your weightloss journey. :D

Hi Sam,
I am also 85kgs. I started the same time as Kim,(I think she had lost 2kgs when I came here!), and she is now under 60kgs!!! I am still 84.5kgs :oops: So, I would love to lose with you. I am walking daily, I have a personal trainer online, and I am doing a detox next week, then doing Southbeach. I would love to lose weight together!
I also have a weightloss group too. You can PM me if you are interested in joining. It's just a group of girls who email daily about our lives related to our weight.

Welcome Sam, it's nice to meet you.

I too, put on 25kg when I was pregnant and now my son is 3 years old!!! (turned 3 in August) I feel ashamed that I let myself go for that many yaers before finally doing something about my weight earlier this year. I started at 93kg and have lost 16 kg so far. My aim is to lose another 9kg and then re-assess my goal weight.

You will find this forum very helpful in your weightloss journey and I wish you all the best for reaching your goal.
