Postby Purplegal66 » Sun Nov 26, 2006 11:55 am

Hello everyone,

This is my first time on this website. So far it's been interesting reading, that everyone is in the same boat. I would like to lose 8 kgs by christmas. I started today and so far so good.

I have to lose this weight. I am sick of waking up tired and feel bloated all the time. I have been to a natropath to see if she can help me out. I also trying to get pregnant. I mean I am not that overweight. But when she weighed me. I freaked out. I have never been that weight before. I was always around the 65kg mark.

But I am positive I am going to lose my weight this time. I don't want to be overweight for the new year.

Hello Purplegal and welcome to the forum.

Concentrate on getting healthy with exercise and good eating habits and you will get to your goal. Try not to stress yourself out with deadlines too much just aim for your goal and don't let anything stand in your way till you get there no matter how long that takes.

There are plenty of challenges to join in with and exercise and food diaries if you feel they will help. Feel free to join in wherever you are comfortable.

All the very best with your weight loss journey. :D

Hi purplegal!

I have also set myself a mini-goal for Christmas - I AM going to get rid of these 2kg I have re-added so that I can get back down to 75kg for Chrissy (maybe even lower!).

With enough hard work and dedication, I am sure we can both do it!
Cheers,
Tegan
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

First weigh in

Postby Purplegal66 » Tue Dec 05, 2006 6:40 am

Hi,

Had my first weigh in last friday. Lost 2.9kg and 9cm. I am impressed. I thought I lost, because my belly wasn't so tight and I didn't feel as tired. Well 4.1kg to go.

Take care everyone. Everyone can do it, if they have a goal in mind.

Cheers
