Get gorgeous for spring!

Postby surfchick33 » Fri May 30, 2008 8:29 am

Hello, I'm new to this forum & I thought it a great idea to start a "get fit for spring" team.

My background is that I suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) - so weight is always an issue for me.

But not any more! I'm determined to change my attitiude & change my life. I want to look great, feel healthy & wear a god damn T shirt in Spring without feeling self conscious about my arms!

I've just joined a program called MassAttack - my endo said they can help with my PCOS.

Anyhow, who's going to take the challenge with me and look gorgeous this Spring? Come on girls, let's cut some grunt & show to ourselves what we're made of!

Let'sunleash the 'inner goddess within!'

Weight 80kg
Exercise - walking, spin class
Aim 65kg

Hey surf chick!

I'm in! My exercise is still a little limited at the moment as still slowly getting over an accident (I was hit by a car!!) but I've joined a brand new gym that opens on the 11th August - so just in time :P

Between now and then though, I'm going to concentrate on healthy eating and start walking every day (i walk most days but not every day) and on the days its raining, I'll go on the cross trainer.

Look out for the hot spring chicks!!!

Hey, I'm in ... Purrr, look out for the sexy minx this spring. I'm going to really get down & move this weight this Spring. But I'm simply not going to chat unless we are positive, and focused on looking great. :D

After many years of drama, failed diets & grizzling, this is my time to shine and it's also yours.

So let's get moving girls ... :wink:

Hey ali, you poor darling!!! A friend of mine is also recovering from a taxi incident - remember, you can still excercise, its about finding what works best for where your health is at. Eating healthy foods is a great way to start feeling positive about your health.

Minni, you are far too funny ... sexy minx for spring! As long as I don't get mistaken for a dolphin in my wetsuit I'm happy!

Which brings me to the topic of the recent stats released that so few of us women think we are beautiful ... probably right. WICH IS SO VERY WRONG!!!

I think the healthier I feel, the more beautiful I feel .. what do you think?

So as much as I'm in this to lose weight, I really am in it to look & most importantly feel beautiful. I don't a the moment ... but watch out when I do! Meow!

cio :P

I would like to join too please :D

I also have pcos, so I am kind of following a diabetics eating plan :), as with 'diets' I GAIN weight rather than LOSE weight.

Hey Surf Chick,

I'm in too but not to lose weight. Even though it would be a positive i'm joining because of the comment you made:

I am joining to help me feel better about myself, toning, eating well and all that jazz. I want to look good for Spring and although i am close to my goal weight my body fat is still to high so i am not looking at losing until that percentage is in a correct spot. And i want to be a sexy minx too.

Good luck girls

Hey Tarz,

I agree, spring racing carnival is a really good goal. As for the salami legs ... walk baby walk! Ytru to do 8kms at a time, even just once a week will help to tone them. Twice is always better though!

I've started a saving account & depositing the amount that I would normally spend on take away & booze into it. It will be my "new frock & sexy minx outfit fund".

So far i've eposited $120 .. not bad I think!

Hey boo - what's happening?

Ps - I'm only going to weigh myself on a Friday .... wish me luck girls!

Hey surfchick count me in!!

I'm also in the 'My winter challenge' but i figure it can't hurt to be in both?
Do you surf? Lol my forum name is usually 'wannabeasurfer' we have the kombi and the surfboard, but atm am still very much a learner! Can't wait till this summer tho, I'm gonna be fit and ready to hit the waves :)
Also I noticed we have the same starting weight and same goal weight! So thats pretty cool :)
So are we doing any specific group challenges in this thread, or just gonna work it out as we go?
Hope you guys all have a fantastic week!

Love Jane
Jane :)

Hey surf chick, i already do lots of walking and jogging, i have started doing mor strength in an attempt to tone them but i think i have just been born with solid legs, but no bother i will focus on my good features. 8)
The depositing money idea is really good, and you could end up getting alot saved up, but all my moeny is currently being poured into my wedding fund but when i find a dress that is perfect i will be making a debit from that fund. :mrgreen:
So whats everyones plans to make themselves sexy minxes for Spring?

Hi surfchick33, I'm a pcos sufferer too. Doesn't it suck, not getting periods, I've only been given a 2% chance on ever conceiving and that's even on IVF :(, the hair growth, the depression, the hormones going crazy and taking over :twisted:, the acne . I've been on a number of different pills to try regulate my cycle unfortunately my body reacts badly to the pill. Last year I can count on three fingers the number of times I got my period. My doc told me to eat low GI foods as it would help with my pcos. I haven't been told about massattck- can you tell me a little bit about this? Might need to google it and if it does have great success for pcos sufferer i might need to look at going on this program. Anyways, i like your idea of looking gorgeous for spring. As you would know losing weight for us sufferers is very hard, its going to be a constant battle to keep the weight down in saying this i'm in on the challenge. 1st day of spring is september 1st so 2 months on working on a gorgeousness here we come. :mrgreen:
