No time like the present!

Postby thirtypetals » Sat Dec 16, 2006 4:19 pm

Hi everyone
I'm new to the forum but it didn't take long to become inspired with your success stories. When I told my husband that I wanted to lose weight he said that I picked the worst possible time to start a diet. He's probably right but I figure there's no time like the present.

I have been gaining weight over the last three years. I was once 52kg and a gym junkie. 10 years (and two kids) on, I'm 83kg and really uncomfortable about it. I really want to do this. I hope to be reporting back all the kilos shedding!!

Hi thirty petals
welcome to the group. glad you are inspired by some of the members :) i was too when i joined and i still am. best wishes for your weightloss journey. perhaps your hubby is right about the timing but you know what? you are never going to know unless you try it for yourself. you can always reevaluate things later down the track. stay positive and you can achieve anything :)

Hi 30p and welcome!!
I started the day I had my wisdom teeth out so really, there is no time like the present!! Good luck for reaching your goals and I hope the site helps!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
