Hi everyone,

It's great to know there are many other people in the same situation as me. Everyone on this forum seems to be very encouraging which is why I joined. I've run out of motivation to lose weight. I've gotten to the last few kilos and now I think 'well, I'm close enough, I can afford to relax a bit now'. I've been like that since April!

Anyway, I started out at 73kg after I had my son. I got down to 63.8 kilos for my wedding in april then kept going up and down. Now, it's just going up and not down.

I'm 65.6kg now, and my goal weight is 60kg, which I have been previously. I also want the satisfaction of knowing I am the best that I can be and not settling for anything less.

Hello Lou and welcome to the forum.

Well done on your fantastic weight loss to date and you have come to the right place for support and motivation. You are so close to your goal, don't give up but at the same time don't be too hard on yourself. It does seem to be more difficult the closer to goal you get or at least things seem to slow down a whole lot and it can be discouraging. You haven't put on a great deal since April so that is something you should be proud of. You just need to get some focused again and you will get back on track.

We have a heap of challenges you can join in with if you feel comfortable and along with the regular monthly and 12 week challenges there is a new Christmas Challenge starting this Friday for an extra seasonal motivator.

Glad to have you aboard. Sing out if you have any questions.

All the best on your weight loss journey. :D
