Hobart is really nice.
So do you go to gym or anything?
I know its so hard. i'm like, how am i going to lose 100kg.
I am trying to do it naturally no magic pills etc!
just 30 mins brisk walking a day and 3 meals a day no snacks.
I did put on my old jacket yesterday that was size 18 and it actually fitted was a bit loose!!

well, I'm a little 'low tech'. I have changed my attitude to eating so I try to only eat when I need to, not when I'm wanting to and I try to eat mostly natural as opposed to processed foods. I do have small snacks between meals, eg a handful of dried fruit/nuts or a piece of fruit. This keeps my metabolism going.

When I first started I was walking 45min per day. Then I bought a bike and have been riding to work/uni (1hr Mondays, 2 hours Tues-Fri) Then weekends is a break. The bike track is a wonderful thing :D

Where abouts are you in Hobart? Lovely day today too BTW.

And I deleted the copy of this thread for you
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)

haha my parents went to the cadbury factory whilst on holidays in tassie. it was the death of me!

hey bunny welcome. i am in nsw near the steel- city newcastle :) i am 22 and started off at 91kg. you can lose the weight you want to lose with determination and support. there are lots of tips on the forum. why not check out the food diary section to see what people eat to assist with weightloss. i lost my weight by eating lots of fresh food- lean meats, salads and vegies. and drink at least 2litres of water a day :)

best wishes bunny sing out if you need anything :)

I've been there too, but not while I've lived there. Those big vats of molten chocolate...I just wanted to jump in one and swim in it.... :shock:

Laura I found this site really helped and the food and exercise diaries are great, particularly in the beginning! Oh, and try to start out making small changes - if you start changing everything at one, it is almost impossible to stick with - you know the tortoise and the hare...be the tortoise

hmmmmmm CHOCOLATE

Postby bunny » Thu May 17, 2007 11:41 am

hahaha yeah I luv chocolate!!
I have actually learn to eat Lyndtt 85% dark chocolate when I need a fix! Actually does the job! cures the craving and i dont eat the whole block! I can barley finish of 1 square!!
I have been keeping a food journal and trying to stick to my 3 healthy meals a day.
I dont think diet pills work well at all.
I'm not on a strict diet either but i defently watch how and how much i eat!
I also drink this green tean & oolong tea!
Its so so so nice! so i have like 5-7 cups a day of that!
and try drink water!!
so U were 91 kg? what are you now? if you dont mind me asking?
I dont want to sound rude or anyhting.
i am 100 kg and Its made me sick so I want to lose the weight

Postby bunny » Thu May 17, 2007 11:43 am

heheh yes I know that story all to well!
Unfortunatly I have always tried to be the heir when it comes to weight loss.
Magic diet pills etc. booking up time at gyms with trainers.
Now I am just going slow and naturally and hope to see some changes.

hi bunny i havent weighed myself in ages- once i reached my goal weight of 70kg i put the scales away and i now go by the fit of my clothes (i started out a tight 18 and now im a 12-14) so i lost 21kg.

sounds like you are making some good decisions in regards to your weight loss. have you lost anything thus far? the challenges and weigh ins on this forum are a great motivator as well so feel free to join in.

i wouldnt touch dark chocolate if my life depended on it! i cant stand it lol. whilst losing weight i ate darrell lea low carb chocolate. i would only need a square to curb the cravings. too much of it and you get the runs! i also found that jarrah hot chocolattes were really good to help the sugar and choccie cravings

I love the 85% Lindt as well and tend to eat dark choccie predominantly now. Or I have some cocoa with hot water and milk, no sugar.

weigh ins

Postby bunny » Thu May 17, 2007 11:50 am

Hehehehe yes when I first ate a bit of dark choccie i was like ewwwww all so bitter!! I was nearly sick!
but after 10 mins of having it melt away in my mouth i got this really nice sweet taste! so yeah same it curbs the cravings and I only need 1 little bit!
jarrah hey? I like horlicks have you tried that?
I dont have sugar in it!
Ahhh im glad I am not the only girl out there who is a tight size 18!
at 22! this is good to know! even tho you are not size 18 any more.
did you have any tummy over hang? I cant seem to rid mine!
How long did it take you to loose that much weight?
I'd love to wear a nice swim suit this summer of 2008 but 30-40 is a lot of weight to loose between then and now

hey bunny :)

i had the 'apron' hang over too :( i still have it and it is slowly shrinking but ill never have a nice belly. i have had a baby too so it doesnt help with all the stretch marks and stuff :(

yeah i was tight 18 this time last year. my step dad even went to visit family in new zealand and came back with a cardigan for me in a size 20 that fit. i was embarrassed that i was that size let alone that someone else brought it for me and knew id be able to fit into it!

nah i havent had horlicks, but my brother used to drink it all the time. ally (another member on this forum) she swear by aktavite so that might be something else you could try?

also it took me from august last year to lose the weight. i had a break over xmas and got back into it in february and lost the remaining amount. you should aim for 0.5kg- 1kg a week :)

Aktivite is heart burn

Postby bunny » Thu May 17, 2007 1:36 pm

hehehe eww activite gives me heartburn! I'll stick to horlicks!
yeah tummy overhang is not fun.
I want to pull it in. I have not had any children yet.
It's not nice when your man pokes you in the tummy and says
'wibble wobble wibble wobble jelly on a plate'
but more bad if when yeah your like size 18 and other people know.
I have been having anxiety attacks probably due to being 22 and 40kg over weight.
doctors are trying to ease the weight off me.
I put my little quote in home grown too!![/img]
