Hi I am new

Postby esoteric » Sun Aug 26, 2007 9:12 pm

My name is Sara and I currently live in Egypt.

I am hoping to find support and maybe a friend, or a few that would like to keep in contact as I try to keep up motivation to lose weight.

I am just tired all of the time and am really overweight. It's hard because my family can eat and not gain, I don't eat as much as my husband and he is thin but I eat and it seems to stay.

I would love to hear from others.

Thanks

Thanks Kim,

Wow you have done some hard work. It's a struggle to lose weight and I know it isn't overnight. How long have from when you started until you reached your goal?

I lost like 4 kilos in 2 weeks but gained it back after my daughters birthday and the following two weeks of not going back to it.

I am currently at 92 and wish to be at 56 kilograms. Having you greet me gives me hope.

Thanks...

BTW, I like your website, fantastic talent to have.

No problem Sara, ask away.

Not sure what the time difference is from Australia to Egypt but there is usually someone around. It took me around 8 months to lose the weight initially and I now sit around 58-59kg mark.

Weightloss isn't easy but it can be simple. Start out slowly and try to make the changes you make ones that can be done for life.

There will be plenty of others around to welcome you soon, we are a friendy bunch but it is around 9pm here at the moment so you may not meet more until tomorrow.

Hi Sara,

Wow Egypt, I've always had a fascination and a desire to go there after I did 'Ancient Egypt' as a high school course :).

I've never been out of Australia, but hope to travel one day :)

Thank you for your warm welcome to my post.

Hi Sara and welcome to the forum! Men are terrible for that ability to not put weight on aren't they - so frustrating! Not to worry, it just means you will appreciate it even more when you get there!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
