Maraver: I live South of the river now near Rockingham, I am not originally from Australia, My parents brought me to Australia Feb 1997 from Birmingham UK, I haven't seen much of Australia as yet just the closer parts of Perth North and South of the river but thats only ever the furthest i've been, I'm hoping to travel a bit of Australia when the kids grow up and finish school and in the mean time just concerntrate on building a home and life here
I have bits of knowledge about weight loss such as, Motabolisum, calorie intake, muscle mass etc etc I'm hoping I can help others as much as I was helped and are being helped now
I use to go on another board but due to most of them living in USA it was hard to form bonds when you feel outside of the group (they use to meet up in places in US not convient for me) so i searched for an AU board
I learnt a few pointers when I was with the other board but one mainly was never depend on the scales alone, Measurements are a good way to determine how well you've done, even if the scales have said you gained or sticking to the same weight, Photo's were my personal favourite, I use to feel good at the end of each month seeing the difference. I also learnt that weight loss does not happen over night it's persistance that wins in the ends, but i also learnt alot about how many calories i should eat to loose what i wanted but at the same time not being too silly with restricting too many calories...I also learnt that one bad day does not make the whole weight loss process failed that you pick up and continue but not only that I learnt that when you have a bunch of people who are in the same situation as you can make a big difference in your life as well as there's a congratulations makes a big difference to a person
Oh i'm just rambling on again.
My point was though that I'm here and willing to encourage and support and help others as well as the obvious
