SS09, every 15th of the month, starting from 3 days ago. you're on.

PS, I hope it won't be me losing becuase i don't think i have thatttttttttttt much to lose... would much rather just transfer it to muscle.

anyway, game on... should be good =)

Thanks guys :) . How did I do it??
When I first started I only ate 2 meals a day but they were large healthy ones and as I was so big I was too embarrassed to go outside and exercise so I used to put the stereo on walk up and down my hallway for 10, 15 or 20 minutes, whatever I felt like doing- no pressure. Two meals a day probably wasn't that smartest thing to do but as big as I was I could never stomach food first thing in the morning, on the upside it provided me with a great kickstart to losing some weight quickly which I don't regret as I'm pretty sure if I didn't see results reasonably quickly I probably would have failed. Other people use shakes and pills and what not, I just didn't eat breakfast. Anyway the weight started dropping off once that happened it was all the motivation I needed to keep at it. Once I hit around the 120kg. ( I think) mark I started walking outside and I rediscovered breakfast and upping the calories now I have to have breakfast each day or I feel like I haven't started the day on the right foot. Fast forward a few months and it is around an hour of exercise a day consisting of some light weights, walking and Wiiing, some days it is more like yesterday where we hit the beach for a good hour just walking along the sand- lucky me, my folks have two houses on the Esplanade so the beach is always at my fingertips.I also had to up the calories recently due to the amount of time I spend on the Wii. That along with three healthy meals and only fruit for snacks if I feel like them has got me to where I am now. Everyday I allow myself a chocolate treat after tea of around 50-60 cals, a Rondnoir which is a dark chocolate Ferrero-54 cals, a Bertie Beetle-50 cals, a square of dark Lindt- 52ish cals, a Violet Crumble from a multi packs-50 cals, if you look around there are heaps of "naughty" treats about, and am fortunate that I can stop at just one. When I have the chocolate it signifies the end of the eating day for me and it works.

Motivation wise people have asked me a lot about it and the really short answer is I don't know it is just there like it is innate now I find that I don't really need to feel motivated it is just second nature. It's hard to explain really. I just do it and to not do it is unthinkable. I guess at the end of the day I was just well and truly ready for it.
Wow what a waffle on, sorry but you did ask :wink: .

Take care and best of luck to everyone in the challenge, Sue.

I'll join.

My Month to see my ultimate goal is June. I'm going to the pink concert and I'll be going to see her at my goal weight (mid 50's).

I have set myself a 12 week challenge to lose 10kgs, but i'll be happy to see the high 50's by then ( march) and work to my mid 50's by June 16th.

How I'm doing it: eating healthy and exercise.
