This time it will stick

Postby dietcoke » Mon Apr 09, 2007 6:44 pm


Boys and girls this time I WILL get the body I've always wanted. Having been a chubby kid (and subsequently been taunted by judgemental kids) and losing some weight in my teens then gaining and losing weight continuously ever since, I have been MANY different sizes. Every time I lose weight I'll keep it off for a little while then I pile the kilos back on. I have never been at the point where I was not only satisfied but in love with my body.

I figure that if I reach a point where my clothes fit perfectly and I feel comfortable every time I leave the house (without thinking people are staring at my wobbly bits) then I'll have no reason (nor desire) to gain the weight back. Ok so I know no woman will EVER be TOTALLY content with her body but I plan to get as close as possible.

I WILL have a body that I can be proud of and I WILL have the confidence to make something of myself...we all have the potential.

So make a pledge with me now brothers and sisters (cue climaxing organs) WE WILL BE HOT!!!

And to ensure I stay on track I have set up a file on my computer called "weight loss" full of empty folders ready for me to put my weekly progress photos and a "weight and measurements" table PLUS a folder full of "thinspirational" photos of hot celebs and models with the body I want (think Heidi Klum post pregnancy not Mischa Barton).

Wish me luck...not that I'll need it this time :wink: (can you sense my false confidence...gotta fake it 'til you make it)

Ooh just realised how rude something I just wrote sounded. If you didn't pick it up then it must just be my dirty mind and if you DID pick it up I didn't mean it in a rude way ... Sorry kids

Hehe I thought it was funny!

Good on you and you're right it is hard for us to be content with our bodies but it can be done.

zeedeveelgirl - I'm glad I'm not the only one who read it like that!

Dietcoke - Good luck! With that kind of attitude I can't see anything but success in your future.

Losing weight has given me a "Freedom" that I had never previously experienced as an adult... and I am LOVING it!!!

160kg (2004)... 73kg (2006)... Working on maintaining.

Thanks so much for all your words of encouragement guys. And to ensure that I stick to it I PROMISE I will post some before and after photos by June 10 (My "big results" goal date) and my final photos on September 10 (my "hot body" goal date).

And if anyone else has more before and after photos to add to the the section in the forum PLEASE post them. I check that section all the time and am AMAZED by the results that everyone has achieved.

Keep getting healthier and hotter boys and girls!
