Hi guys -
Thought this might be the best place to lay it all on the table. My name is Courtney - I am 25 years old and at the moment i weigh 76.7kgs. At my heaviest I was 90 kilos and for someone that is only 160cm tall it puts me in the obese range. I have always been sporty, played everything from netball, basketball, been a swimmer - even tried rugby! When i started seeing my BF 6 years ago we both settled and put on 20kg each. I didnt even notice it until one day we bought a set of bathroom scaleS!!!!!! Then my best friend asked me to be a bridesmaid - the other three girls she asked were around 6ft tall and size 8! So i thought to myself i am NOT going to be the fat b'maid that everyone feels sorry for. So i stopped eating carb and walked 8km everyday - not surprisingly I lost around 17kg in 3 months. My BF lost 20kg's.I felt great and I loved myself in the champagne pink dress! Since then i have traveled the world and slowly my weight has crept back up from around 72kg's to 80kgs. The thing is - i was going to the gym and walking and doing a tonne of exercise but the weight wasnt budging!
3 weeks ago i joined Jenny Craig. I have lost 3.4kg's in the last 3 weeks. My goal? 65kg's. I cannot remember weighing less that 70kg's but my BMI says i should be between 51 and 64kg's. So 65 and then see where i go from there!
I am happy, fit and healthy, i can run on a treadmill for a good 40 mins without stopping at a reasonable pace - I just dont look how i should and i am desperate to! My parnter is a gym addict - last night he was there for 3 hours! He is looking great and it is great having someone so motivated by my side. So in this post I am going to keep track of my progress - this is for me. I dont keep a journal so everything will be here. Short term goals?
1. Keep drinking 3 x 600ml bottles during the working day,
2. eat my JC meals and snacks every 3 hours to keep my metabloism going,
3. don't put my body in starvation mode by exercising TOO much
