I'm new at this! I have just started walking 40mins per day (i think it's about 4km?) and needing to lose 19kgs so i am healthy again.
As of Monday, i decided I am going to walk every day. So far so good.. I need some motivation though!! so i can keep it up...

My wedding is in 4 weeks so that is keeping me motivated also!!!

If I can lose 4kgs in the next 4 weeks then my wedding dress will fit even better :P

I am only eating when hungry and trying not to eat any 'naughty' foods! I have been on/off/on/off a shake diet and I'm a bit tired of doing that too. Trying to eat healthy like salads and veges...

I look forward to meeting you all.
Renstar :D
Started walking as of 27th Aug!! 40mins per day!! need to lose 19kgs to be healthy again :)

Hi Renstar,

4kg in 4 weeks can definately be done, just a few tips i have that is giving me success in my weight loss is by eating breakfast lunch and dinner with snacks in between, portion size is the most important thing. But you need to eat throughout the day to keep you energised and keep your motabolism going. eating Breakfast is a must. my snacks are usually fruit, nuts, yoghurt..... im on a 1200 calorie diet atm and i have lost around 5 kg in 4 1/2 weeks.
to lose 1/2 kg they say that you need to burn 3500 calories more than you take in.
Walking 1 mile you can burn about 100 cal
Skipping fast for 10 mins your can burn about 100 cal
just remeber to keep moving if your not purposly doing exercise you will burn calories, also sleeping a full nite you burn about 70 calories.

I hope i am of some help.

Hi Renstar and welcome! Your 4 week goal is definitely achievable and you are doing great by starting with walking!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

You can do it if you stay focused and the walking should help too, so that is great you have started that.
