Caution, I ramble.

Postby Hanhan » Fri Jul 08, 2011 10:32 pm

I figured rather than chew the ears off my skinny friends with tales of diet and gym I'd bore the heck out of a bunch of like minded people :)

So I'm Hanny, I'm Twenty and I've been overweight my entire life. In November of last year I took a good look at my life and compared how I was actually living to how I wanted to live. Needless to say at 113kgs I wasn't enjoying my 20s as much as I should have been and I finally took weight loss seriously.

Today I sit at 98kgs, still technically obese, but so proud of the body I've worked hard for these last few months. I'm smaller than I was in High School, I'm currently wearing a pair of jeans I bought on impulse when I was 17 that didn't fit. My weight is in DOUBLE DIGITS! I have more confidence, I don't make excuses when friends want to go the beach or invite me around when there are people I don't know there. I'm happier, I'm healthier, but I still have a long way to go.

I've been off the wagon since I started Uni in March, although it seems I've managed to maintain my weight, which to me is one of the most exciting things in the world. It proves my theory that I wasn't living an incredibly unhealthy life, I was just living an unhealthy life that was slowly creeping up on me. It also means that when I get to my goal weight I'm not going to wake up one morning and suddenly be overweight again. My weight wasn't a product of a few years bad decisions, its a product of a lifestyle I've lived since day dot.

Now my 21st Birthday is approaching and I need to get this train back on the tracks. So, I'm here to ramble, I'm here to complain and I'm here to track goals.

The goals, as of now, which may be edited as I fall off the wagon and clamber back on:

95kgs

90kgs

85kgs - October 7th. My twenty first birthday, a day I want to really shine.

83kgs - I'll officially be overweight, bye bye obese.

82kgs - November 5th. My Aunties wedding, and the day before my niece is due, I don't want my niece looking back at photos of her and her Aunty and seeing some fat lady.

80kgs

78kgs - December 25th. The first big family Christmas in ten or so years. Fingers crossed my Family won't even recognize me.

75kgs

73kgs - February 7th. I'll officially be starting back at Uni, some of my classmates won't have seen me since November.

70kgs

68kgs - Finally Normal weight range. I've never been able to say that before!

65kgs - FINAL GOAL.

Then it's just maintain, maintain, maintain :)
I'm so excited to be back on track, and with such an amazing website behind me.

Hey Losing2day,
I fell off the wagon this Month, mostly due to a family members death. I know, lifes going to throw these things at as but I'm back on the wagon now sitting at 98 (I jumped up to 99 and It gave me the push I needed to get back on the wagon, I promised myself i'll never hit the hundreds again)
One of the most amazing feelings is when you get on the scales and it tells you that you're finally under the hundreds, how are you going at the moment?

Hi Hanhan,

Sympathy and hugs for your loss. Sometimes we have higher priorities than focussing on ourselves, which is fine. As long as we can get back on track when the immediate crisis is over.

Struggled yesterday and went over my allowance. I am going to increase my fluid and eat less ricecrackers today (high in sodium and ate a whole pkt yesterday :oops: ).

Looking out for the August challenge as I weigh in tomorrow and think it I join a challlenge it will increase my commitment. Why is this so hard sometimes??

Take care,
Trudy

Hey Trudy,

Funny you should say that because I just started an August challenge, doing one last month really helped when I wasn't off the wagon.

Sometimes we lose sight of what we're really doing, it's a great feat, changing your life, not just your appearance and don't forget that there is always tomorrow, never beat yourself up about a slip up.

Plus there are always the little victories that spur us on to keep going, a drop on the scales, pants that feel roomier etc. For me at the moment its the fact that my collar bones have reappeared. I've always been fascinated by collar bones, I find them so delicate and beautiful and because I've been big my whole life mine have never really been all that obvious but once I'd lost some weight I started to notice them, and now I've dropped another couple of kgs after my stint off the wagon they're sticking out again :)

So have you got a lot of mini goals set up?

Hi,

Is the August challenge in the challenges?

I have decided to set up some mini goals after I reach my first goal. I have done all this before and failed in the first day or week, that is why yesterday concerns me, so easy to say, "Too hard, stuff it!"....

You would already be in the zone, having achieved fantastic results already. Can't wait for the "zone"!

Keep on keeping on...and you're right, collar bones are beautiful although mine are well protected currently :wink:

I just noticed that your signature had changed, congrats on that loss! What an awesome kick off :) Yeah, the best you can do is pick yourself up and dust yourself off there really is nothing else for it.

So excited for the August challenge! We can do this.

Yep, one week down, many more to go. Of course, I feel like I deserve to have lost at least 40kg last week but I guess the weekend stopped that :lol:

I have joined your August challenge and expect, like you, to put a pretty good dent in this weight loss business.

On another note, the spam on this forum is terrible.......

I've decided to change my overall goal weight, and therefore all my mini goals on the way :) After having discussions with a personal trainer AND family and friends I've realised 70kgs is a healthier weight for me to aim for and I'll still be in the healthy weight range for my height, only just but I've never been able to say that before :)

So, new goals, new timeline, new excitement:

95kgs - Achieved 15/08/11

93kgs - 1/09/11

91.5kgs - 20/09/11 HALF WAY THERE! 21.5 lost, 21.5 to drop :)

90kgs - 1/10/11

89.5 kgs - 7/10/11 I want to say I turned twenty one in my 80s :)

85kgs - 1/11/11 Just in time for Aunties wedding and my Sisters first baby.

80kgs - 1/1/12 I'm giving myself wriggle room over Christmas and New Years.

75kgs - 1/3/12

70kgs - 1/5/12

I'm so excited :) Can't wait to hit the next few goals, should collect them all fairly fast since I'm sitting at 93.5kgs right now :) Couple more weeks and fingers crossed I'll be half way there. Gosh, I'm so happy :D

Good, achievable goals there Hanny!

I can feel your excitement in your post. Making a list of achievable goals is very motivational and having the support of a personal trainer gives you accountability.

Loving your work, keep it up,
