Introducing myself

Postby BecMac259 » Sat Nov 17, 2012 8:36 am

Hi,
my name is Bec & i am a 35 year old, married, mummy to 3 gorgeous boys - 7, 3 & 7 months.
I have ALWAYS struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. My mum & sister are slim, but my brother & I have both always been over weight - gotta love having a Polish father.
I have tried everything out there, every crazy thing.
Last week, for some reason, I just thought, 'this is it, if I don't do it now, I'm never going to & I'll be a fat old lady.'
So I started parking the car on the way to dropping my eldest off to school & doing a 30min round walk pushing the pram. I cut out all alcohol (how I love a glass of wine :wink: ) & downloaded the My Fitness Pal app onto my iPhone. I love that app!! I've never followed calories before, but it is very enlightening.
In one week I lost 2.2kg & I'm into my second week now (did have a couple of vodkas last night, but it was with soda water).
I'm amazed at all my new energy already & my clothes are looser.
I know my husband & family are probably going to be thinking 'here she goes again.' But I feel really positive. :D
My starting weight was 119.4kg - size 22-24 clothes. My goal is 100kg & size 18 clothes.
So looking forward to getting to know some new people & to get some great ideas.
Hope I haven't bored you with my little intro.

Nice attitude and great start!

have tried everything out there, every crazy thing.]


See, now you can stop doing all the crazy stuff and just stick with the good old eating clean whole unprocessed foods and moving and you'll get there!

Hi Bec, sounds like we have some similar goals, I started at 120kg just about 7 weeks ago, and I've lost 7kg to date ... It doesn't seem like I've been doing it for long, but this time around it feels like I'm on a life changing journey, I know that even if I ever reach those long term goals, I can't relax my thinking, I will always be challenged by the issues around weight loss, but I am really consciously trying to make healthier choices. This firum is a great way to stay focussed, and something that has certainly helped e in the last few weeks, wishing you all the best on your journey ...
Cheers, fee
trying to stop the yo-yo!!!

Welcome Bec and good luck on your journey!!


I too am a mum and my kids are my main motivation. When I don't feel like walking they push me, when I eat bad they let me know!

I look forward to reading your progress :)
