I put off doing an introduction because I really didn't want this to be 'another failed attempt at weight loss'! But the time has come, i've stuck with it for 3months now and the results are showing! I am a South Aussie girl, 27, 157cm short and work as a Kindy teacher! I've always been tubby since I was a kid, but lost a bit when I finished school and started working a job where I was constantly moving/on my feet. Now I teach and it means alot of sitting and eating with the kids to 'role model' which really means eating LOTS of carbs and having two lunches
In August I started ordering Lite 'n' Easy because I just wasn't cooking and was eating out more and more and packing on the weight. For the first two weeks I just ate the meals and had a half hour-hour walk each night. The next two weeks I was feeling awesome, lots of energy, so I started walking on the treadmill 30 minutes in the morn/30 mins at night so I could bump up and monitor my walking speed. The second month I started interval walking/jogging on the treadmill as well as purchasing a kayak and kayaking for an hour on the weekend. This third month I've switched to bike riding and bought a heart rate monitor. I've been following these boards since I started though and picking up great tips and ideas.
When I started I weighed 77kilos, now three months later I weigh 66.5kilos - I've managed to lose just
over 10 kilos as of this week
I completely changed my diet to only drinking white/green tea and water (soft drink free for three months!!), from lollies everyday to 100grams of skittles in three months and from eating out about 4 times a week to once every second week. I'm in the process of trying to work my way off of Lite 'n' Easy - maybe sticking with the dinner because they just make life so lovely
My motivations are:
- getting my asthma back in check
- having more energy
- being 'the skinny friend' for once
- looking good at my wedding
- getting my body ready for kids some year soon!
So look forward to chatting to you all and getting healthy
