Hi from Kaz

Postby Kaz » Sat Apr 14, 2007 4:18 pm

Hi everyone! I have been reading your forum for the past few days and decided you all are what I need to re-motivate myself into losing weight.

A bit about myself! My name is Kaz and I am 33 years old. I live in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. About 3 years ago I weighed 105.5kg and then got asked to be a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding. In 12 months I lost 25.3 kg (using the WW points system but doing it alone) but for the past year I hung around the 85 kg mark but I have started to creep up again as bad habits have resurfaced. My goal weight is supposed to be about 70-75kg but if I can be under 80kg I will be stoked.

I know how to lose the weight as I have proved this to myself before but it is the motivation that I lack to ignore the little evil Kaz voice that pipes up more frequently these days and wants chocolate and naughty food. And to ignore the emotional and boredom eating bouts that have been coming around.

I hope that I can get inspiration from you all to succeed in my goal.

Hi everyone

Well I have finally picked myself up and dusted myself off after a mighty fall off the wagon. I have made a commitment to myself to start climbing back on again.

I think that I was blaming stress over the past few months as an excuse but not any more.

I am starting my new "just bought a house so I can't afford junk food or chocolate anymore diet" So far I have lost 1 kg in the first week so hopefully it will continue.

Even though I have not been posting I have still ventured to this site on my sever "fat" days to gain motivation to restart. I look forward to catching up with you all again.
