Hi Everyone!

Postby Shelli » Thu Feb 15, 2007 1:32 pm

This is Shelli from Victoria and I just discovered this site.

I've been dieting for 2 weeks and have lost almost 7kgs, so I'm off to a good start. :D

I am doing it myself though, and I think this site will be great motivation for me to keep going (as you can see I have quite a lot to lose).

I'm folllowing the basics from the Sureslim diet but have altered it a little after reading 'The Blood Group Diet'. Basically the same thing though.

Looking forward to the next 12 week challenge, it's like our own Biggest Loser! (And I'm sure we all know how hard it is to continue when the weight loss slows down. :cry: )

Anyway, hope to get to know you soon! I love the motivational help around here!

Cheers!

Thanks Nikki, but I know it's mainly fluid, and at my weight, I had lots of it to lose. The hard slog starts now!

I see you are in the early stages too.

Congrats on your loss!

Hay Shelli - first off let me say - great name. I am a Michelle and got Shelley all through primary school. My cousins couldn't say Michelle - so I got Shelley which came out like Sharley - which in turn sporned Charlie which is what I generally get called (geez glad I got that off my shoulders!!!!!!)

Anyway welcome to this fantastic site and OMG 7 kilos IS amazing - even if it is fluid you must still be proud of yourself.

This site is great for motivation. Just have a looksy at the inspiring before and after shots (ie Kate's pictures). If that is not enough to get you going then I don't know what is.

As I usually say "welcome aboard the good ship weightloss - destination Skinny Land". Enjoy the ride!!!!
2008 - my year to be great!!

Hi Charlie. I love that name! Much better than Shelli!
I'll probably just end up calling you Sassy though...

Thank you! Yes, a little proud, and I already feel much better (and the jeans I was wearing are already too big).

Oh, I just found the pictures. She looks GREAT! I have a 'before' photo I took a while ago but I think that can remain hidden for now. I'm not very keen on having my photo taken. :(

Thank you for the lovely welcome! Ithink I'm gonna like it around here!

Thanks Kim.

I saw your photos earlier and congratulations on doing such a great job! It definitely helps speaking to others that have already done it and succeeded. Do you mind if I ask which diet you followed?

You look fantastic!

My first goal is 110kg, as that was my pre-pregnancy weight, and would make me about a size 18. (I'm tall, 5ft10)

No more super-size jeans! Then the long slog downwards...

I'm positive though, and am really happy I found this group!

Thanks!

Hi Shelli and welcome! I think everyone else has said it all...so ditto!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
