M name is Hayley. I joined this forum way back in mid 2006, just after I'd started the Tony Ferguson program. I weighed 93kg back then. I managed to lose 21kg on Tony Ferguson by December 2006, before moving to a small country town in North West Western Australia in Feb 2007. I was in an unhappy and depressing situation up there and reverted back to my old, unhealthy eating habbits. The result of this was that I put back on 11kg of the 21kg that I'd lost.
I've now moved to Shanghai, China with my husband and son, but am currently in Australia for another 6 weeks before I fly back to Shanghai. I intended to start on TF 2 weeks ago, but last week was an absolute write-off and I only stuck to the program for 1 day - I just wasn't in the right frame of mind! So, I started TF this week on Monday, along with my mum, and hope to reach my goal weight of 68kg in the near future. On Monday, my starting weight was 81.5kg and today, after only 3 days completely on the TF program, I weigh 79.2kg, so I've lost 2.3kg already! Ideally I'd like to lose 10kg before I head back to China, as the shipping of TF sachets to China can is extremely expensive. I'd like to lose as much weight as possible before I go so that I only have to take a small supply back with me to help me lose the last couple of kilos and not have to worry about getting products shipped over. I have also started doing some ab work and walked for 40 mins on Monday and Wednesday. I intend to start walking every day for that time and increase it as I get my fitness level up, which hopefully won't take too long.
My motivation is that when I get back to Shanghai, we're going to start trying for another baby, and I would like to have lost some weight before I fall pregnant (I put on 23kg with my first pregnancy).
In 2006, I found this forum etremely motivating and the friendly people helped support me and keep me on track on my weight loss journey. I hope it's the same this time round.
