NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

Postby orily1 » Tue Jan 02, 2007 7:43 pm

Hi everyone, am here because this year i truly intend to take my weightloss challenge seriously and to stick it. I am a yoyo dieter with horrendous eating habits. This holidays i have done nothing but happily, and shamefully tucked into as much junk food as i could cram into my mouth and the result has been laughing back at me everytime i look at myself infront of the mirror.

My weight before i started in on the junkfood was sitting at 60kg and my main goal was to get to at least 50-55kg. Instead i piled on 5 kilos and my size 12 jeans are now starting to get tighter and tighter. I normally don't excercise because.... to be honest i cannot give a reason why :lol:. But i live a kinda hectic lifestyle and i guess i always use it as an excuse not to live a healthy lifestyle.

So after seeing this website i decided that its not enough to make weightloss a New Year's resolution i had to act and do something about it. After reading different peoples lifestories and the amazing changes that have taken place, it has inspired me even more to seriously get back to a healthy eating program and exercise. Of course it will be hard i know but i'll keep in touch.

Hello Orily and welcome to the forum.

Sounds like you have your head in the right direction. So much of this is about our mental attitude and focus rather. Rather than just wanting something you need to actively choose it and do the things that help you get there. It's not easy but man when you fit into clothes you haven't for some time it is very rewarding. Not to mention the wonderful and very important health benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Sing out if you need any help and feel free to join in wherever you are comfortable.

I wish you all the best on your weight loss journey. :D

I have so much weight to lose that it's just embarrassing to be honest. :oops: Rather than make a New Years resolution I have simply decided that enough is enough.

Like so many of you on here, I'm sure, I am a shocking yo yo dieter. But I have decided that now is the time, not just to lose weight, and to keep it off, but to get my head around the kind of person I am, and what I have to do to be the kind of person I want to be, regardless of how much I weigh.

hi orily

kim is right - its all about the mental attitude towards it. i never went on a diet as such but always said i would start 'first thing monday' 'tomorrow' etc etc but never did. you need to look at making lifestyle changes - you put on that 5kg for a reason. now you need to do the opposite to lose it. best wishes!

hey dee :)

dont be embarrassed because that means you are embarrassed of us as well!! we are all here to lose weight and maintain it as wel. stay dedicated and you can achieve anything.
