I have been a member of this forum for nearly a year.
In that time I have lost nearly 17kgs - which I am so proud of!
I have commented on so many threads, joined challenges and made such good friends (you know who you are!!!!!), BUT I have never opened myself up and said this is what I am doing to lose weight.
I have read so many personal progress threads so here is mine!
I have set myself a goal to lose 20kgs this year.
Last week I was walking along the beach with my kids and hubby and I had one of those lightbulb moments. I saw girls wearing bathers and bikinis and I was walking in my big board shorts - and I just thought why can't I look like them.
I know that I can lose the weight, and I feel that a year is enough time for it, but I am worried that I am putting too much emphasis on it in my mind. Every thing I put in my mouth at the moment I am thinking about "Operation 20kg". I am obsessed but I don't want to be too obsessed( Does that make sense). I want to be mindful of it but not obsessed that is probably a better way of putting it.
That is my state of mind.
Here is what I do for my body...
Food: Breakfast - protein smoothie with banana and strawberries.
Lunch: Omlette with ham, parsley and cheese.
Dinner: Normally chicken and veg or salad of some description.
Exercise: 3 times a week I go to Step Into Life which is a group outdoor personal training... which I love! It is a great group, very social... but boy do we exercise!
The days that I don't do that I try to walk/jog with my boys( 2 sons, 6 and 3 and my husband!!). I also often walk to do the school pick up (altho this week is going to be 41degrees three days in a row, so unlikely I will be walking).
I haven't tried CalorieKing as I feel that counting calories might not be best for me with my obsessiveness!!!. I have been to a naturopath who has given me supplements so I am happy in that way.
I look forward to your comments - and anything that I may be able to do for my "Operation 20kg".
Yours in weightloss,
