My epic weight loss starts - Jasminena's Journey

Postby Jasminena » Fri Oct 16, 2009 3:34 pm

Hi All,

I have introduced myself in the Introduction's Thread so I'm sorry if I repeat myself.

Two days ago I decided to change my life! My health is starting to decline and I'm still so young. This worries me as I have small kids and wish to run around with them and be there for them. I don't want to be a statistic! I should also add that I have been unhappy with my weight since I was about 17, so that's 12 years now that I have been ballooning out slowly & this is the first time I have truly had enough and I'm going to be PROACTIVE and drop these Kgs for good!

I have started my extensive Food Diary and an Exercise Diary today, I am taking photos of all that I eat & drink as well so there is no way of "forgetting" anything.

I have also signed up with http://www.calorieking.com.au to help me count my calories. according to this site I should be eating around 1890 calories a day for my height & I should be doing a minimum of 30mins of exercise every day as well.

over the next few days I will calculate exactly what I have been eating and where I have been going wrong. I susspect my portions to be a major contributing factor. Oh & I don't exercise - well not until yesterday that is.

My first short term goal is to get down to 115kgs. then when i have passed that i will do a new short term goal. I intend LONG TERM to get down to 60kgs.

I haven't weighed myself in about 6 weeks and I was just over 120kgs then. so the next time I go to the quacks i will weigh myself and post it up here. For all to see! :oops: :?

Anyway. I have started & I will update later today or tomorrow.

Thank you for your kind remarks there emmer138 - i am fairly sure i'm 5'7 i think 173cm should double check it when at the quacks next... hehehe :wink:

I see you're in Mackay - that is a great part of the world! :lol:

In the end we all get to where we want to be - so keep up the good effort there emmer138!

Jas, I really believe that you can do this. We both can. We are so similar and if we motivate each other, we CAN DO THIS.

Well I surprised myself today my calories were 1905....

NOT TOO SHABBY considering I haven't really started anything yet... + I had booze

Will need to sort out portions and got into the habit of having Breakfast and Lunch... as i only really now have them when i'm feeling light headed. not very often anyway.
