I should have started this when I joined but better late than never right? I'm Carley, I'm from Adelaide. I'm married, an angel son and two daughters. I started at 106 kilos after I had my baby in December 2008 and that for me was very depressing, my heaviest weight ever. Every time I looked at myself I felt nothing but shame and disgust. I didn't feel as healthy as I could, I didn't feel attractive to my husband even though he said that wasn't an issue for him. For me, it was how I felt about me, how I saw myself. I want to be an example to my children on how to be healthy, on how to treat your body. I've had bulimia and anorexia before and that scares me still.
I've been on a lifestyle change for 14 months now, time flies. When I did my first weigh in, thinking I have 40 kilos to lose was overwhelming, it was scary. I decided to take month by month, goal by goal. I set small goals, 100 kilos, 95 kilos, 90 kilos and so on. I've been going to the gym, I've been working really hard and I'm very proud of that. I've started running, can you believe that? I'm doing weights, I'm full of energy. I'm 71.3 kilos, I only have 6.3 kilos to go to my final goal, and to say that makes me very proud. I have photos in the photo section. When I'm at my goal weight of 65 kilos I need to learn how to maintain, I want to tone up, I want muscle, I was to be strong. If I can do it, then anyone else can. Believe in yourself.
