Hi Everyone

Heya guys and girls :)

My name is Julie, I'm a 28, married mum of 2 and sick of being fat. I weigh 138kgs and I'm disgusted in myself. I'm sitting here watching Amazing Medical Stories, they are featuring super morbidly obese people and I don't want to end up like that. So I have decided no more putting it off I have to lose weight now.

This is the most I have ever weighed, I was at this weight a couple of years ago, but I fell pregnant after having to go on fertility treatment. I had really had morning sickness and lost a lot of weight, after giving birth I weighed 115. I'm so angry at myself that all that weight I lost has piled back on.

So since I am too embarrassed to talk about my situation with anyone and I wouldn't dare tell anyone I know my weight I thought this would be a good place to talk to like minded people who won't judge me.

Now I'm going to go get myself one of those tickers and I am determined to have it read at least a couple kgs lighter next week.

Julie :)

Good on you for making the decision to change your life and get healthy. Remember, slow and steady wins the race - you have a long way to go, and you're not going to be a size 10 next month... but if you keep at it, it will happen!

The important thing is making changes you can sustain, so that you will keep the weight off - forever! How good will it be that day when you get into double figures and think - I'll NEVER weigh over 100kg again!

Best of luck, we're all here to support you.

Hi there, I also weighed exactly 115kg after I gave birth to my daughter. With some determination and patience I managed to lose a lot of weight but it happened slowly (over a period of two years) so dont expect miracles overnight. Some people expect to lose weight fast and when they dont, they give up and go back to their old ways :? .
Start off slowly and dont completely change everything about your diet/lifestyle because you may not be able to maintain it. I remember just making a few small changes and that was enough to kickstart the weight loss. Once you stop losing weight, change a few more things and you will continue losing. As long as you stick to your plan you will succeed and dont let anyone or anything get in your way. You can do it! EVeryone here is great so ask as many questions as you like.
Liz :D

Hi Julie,

I'm Dee - at almost 25 years old I started this year at 135.6 kgs and am also a married mum of two. So far I've lost almost 12kgs and am finally getting to the point where I don't feel ashamed of my weight - but instead I'm proud of how hard I am working to make changes in my life.

Can't wait to share in your success - and remember we are all here for you if you need help, guidance, love and hugs.

Hi Julz and welcome. When I first started, it was hard to overcome the senseless embarrassment I felt at any effort on my behlalf to eat right or exercise - like everyone was looking at me thinking "yeah, as if THAT'S gonna help you". But the more I did it the easier it became! Congrats on taking the steps you have so far!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
