I am a 36 yo, mother, and professional woman who was lucky enough to have a fast metabolism - until after 30. Since then my weight goes more up than down!
I have tried all sorts of diets - Your body your life, South beach, weight watchers and I get some losses but then it all goes back on.
I'm getting married in September and when I tried my dress on (fitted in december) in April, I only just got into it with the fabric stretched and the seam ripped!
I went to a Registered dietician and she has put me on a sensible and safe eating plan. So far I've lost 3.5kg, reduced my body fat and improved muscle tone. I have another 5kgs to go and hope to be my goal weight by end of August. My weight loss is slow - 500g/ week but I'm feeling so much better. I exercise 5 days per week.
I am so impressed with how many lovely people are on this website and thought I'd join the weight loss family!
