Hi Guys,

I live alone and I don't have a huge support network, so I am going to use this thread as a place to jot down my thoughts as often as I feel I need to.

I started this journey 8 weeks ago, however I was very sick for 2 weeks of the 8, so I am scratching those from history and will say that I am 6 weeks into my personal challenge. The last week has seen me gain 1 kilo, which has left me feeling really disappointedin myself as I have put in so much effort in the weeks leading up to that - however - I didn't put in the effort at gym, I ate some things I shouldn't have and I paid the price. Actions have consequences.

I am currently 103.8 kilos and 5'4" tall, this makes me obese. I have three goals. My first goal is to lose 10 kilos by 30 December 2008, my second goal is to lose another 10 kilos by 30 March 2009 and my fourth goal is to lose a further 10 kilos by 30 June 2009 - bringing me down to 73kilos. Three goals are enough, and I will re-assess when I reach them about setting more so that I don't lose focus.

I am so very determined to take myself to a place where I am a happier, healthier, fitter version of the wonderful person that I am... and I am really looking forward to surrounding myself with like-minded people whilst I do it.

I can't wait to share my journey with you!

Hiya hunni and welcome.

It sounds like we could be an awesome team. Im about the same height as you (well the same) and I started at 102.8 (worst ever day I saw was 103.2 but that was once so Im not counting it :P ), I may have started a little earlier but I cant wait to be whittling away the kilos together.

Nice to meet you, yoyo... it's nice to be surrounded by people in the same predicament!

Gosh, this week has been a complete shocker, although I knew it would be before it even started.

The food department hasnt been too bad, although with me it rarely is. I've always been a somewhat healthy and moderated eater so it's really not been a drama. I have had a very hectic and full on week with several work-related dinners which involved delicious meals and plenty of vino, so I dare not step on the scales this weekend as I know it's not going to be good.

In the exercise department I have completely failed. The evening shenanigans with work, and working 30 minutes away from my gym, eliminated the potential for gym visits and that's just not good. I hereby solemly swear that I will do much better than this next week!

I discovered that a team of people at the mine I work at are having a 6 week weight loss challenge, so yesterday I went for the first weigh in and I'm keen to take out the prize. Last time they did this the winner lost 4.9 kilos all up, and I'm thinking I can better that.

Anyway, it's Friday and a long weekend... so hip-hip hooray!

Well, last week I joined the six week weight loss challenge with a group of people at work and we had our weigh in today after week 1, and I am SO pleased to say that not only did I lose 1.1kg's this week, but I am out in front, having beaten all of the other female contenders!

This has given me inspiration, and I'm ready to kick ass again next week!
