Well let me just start by saying thanks to eveyone on here as you guys are a great bunch of people. I feel inspired to be more motivated.
Im Sam. 22 years old and currently 77kgs. Im only 5'2.
I finally worked out yesterday that im a perfectionist and thats why i push myself so hard at the gym. But if i fail or dont lose anything i just give up. Well now i have all of you on my case to keep my weight loss moving.
I always was a bigger built girl. After i quit gymnastics i seemed to put the weight on. Through high school i seemed to get into proportion with everything and then when i was just about to turn 15 i fell pregnant with my daughter. Well that was the biggest rollacoaster of mylife and she is now about to turn 7(on wednesday!!). After i gave birth i jumped on the scales and weighed in at 54kgs. I had never been that small in my life but i was really happy. Slowly i started putting on the weight and a major factor was over eating and the contraceptive shot. It caused my depression to finally be treated and pile on the weight. I have often looked in the mirror and told myself i need to slim down but never done anything about it. My son was born in Dec 2004 and at full term with him i weighed 89kgs an i remember feeling so heavy and uncomfortable that i said to my mum i could never be this weight. But i never really lost the baby weight and slowly i have now reached 80kgs. This is the heaviest i have evern been. So 2 weks ago i started on my journey to being to happy and healthy person i felt like 6 years ago.
Currently i have lot 3kgs. I know this isnt going to be easy but if you guys can then so can I!!

Thanks for all the support.

Wow, rustie that really has been a rollercoaster, hun :shock:

I wish you all the best, we're really a nice group of people, feel free to ask anything, anytime :)

The best 'starting out' advice I can give you is to be brutally honest in this forum, if you binge, put it down in the confessional, if you eat something bad, put it down in the diet section or on your progress page. I find if you hide something, or pretend you did some exercise that you didn't, the only person you're fooling and hurting is yourself.

You'll be dropping the kgs in no time, I'm sure ♥♥

Hi Sam

I'm 22 yrs old too :D

Yep you have certainly come to the right place for the motivation and inspiration you need for your weight loss journey.

You have done so well so far, you should be proud of your efforts. The hardest hurdle is the beginning (I have found this- and still am at the beginning) because (and this is my own experience) you are not far in the weightloss phase to see good results so can easily sway to old habits. Perseverance is your friend :D

Madeline has given you some good tips- and she's so right - if you don't acknowledge it you are only lying to yourself and not helping yourself out.

G'luck with your journey :D
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs


No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

Hiya Sam, thanks for sharing that with us. It is all about trial and error, so it can be a long journey. Bt stick with it cause even if the scales aren't moving anything you do is making you healthier!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Well i better update and today i had my very first session with the personal trainer. My heart rate got so high that i had to lay down cause i thought i was gonna pass out. But within 5 mins i was fine and pushing more weights. Having the personal trainer there was enough to push me to a higher limit and im proud that i didnt whinge and i think i did very well!
We had a great chat and he is gonna personalise me a program. He gave me some great tips!
I should be eating 1500 calories a day. Eating my pastas and breads in the morning before i workout. It gives you the necessary sugars to push yourself. Protien after working out is best as it aids recovery. Hes very layed back in his approach but as he said you have to live life and aslong as we treat our bodies with respect it will show us the same.
The best comment he made was you can eat 1500 calories of ANYTHING!! As long as it is only that amount in the day you will be fine,.,..

hey sam. it's tough when the scales don't move - especially when you've been doing everything you should!

our bodies are strange things though - it could be anything - sodium, totm, starting to use weights etc. are you taking measurements as well? sometimes you'll find yourself losing cm's even if the scales don't move.

and even without the scales moving, you're still becoming a fitter & healthier person (although i know that doesn't mean much when those damn scales haven't moved!)
