This section of the forum seems fairly quiet, but I too am another one who needs to lose quite a bit.
I need to lose for my health, and for fitness mostly. And I'd love to be a size 14 again. Or 12. Not a 10 though, I don't think I want to lose that much. First I want to get to 85 kg and see how I feel. I'm happy to go as far as 60kg, but I think that's as low as I could go. I don't know though I've not been that little since I was about 9!
Anyways so far I am doing a water aerobics class once a week. I just got my license (I was able to previously due to medical reasons) and so I'm hoping to also join a gym. Probably my university gym for the next year and a half. I have big feet so I'm finding it difficult locating some runners that are comfortable and cheap. I did find a pair, they weren't cheap so I promised myself that if I quit smoking I could buy them. I haven't had a smoke in over 3 weeks so after I pay to get my wisdom teeth out and the rego for my new car, I'll be getting those runners
I want a magic fix but I know I'm not going to get it.
2011 has been such an amazing year, my partner got a really good job, I quit smoking and finished my undergrad degree. If I can make it even better by losing as much weight as possible then it will be the best year of my life
I feel really hypocritical though. I have a bag of freckles in my work bag, as well as a can of softdrink at my desk. I told myself I would start as of the 1st of May. And I will. Until then I'm not going to go nuts, I'm just going to be easter-conscious. I want this to be a lifestyle change, so I need to be honest with myself, realistic and I need to be forgiving BUT still determined!
Here's to a long-lived lifestyle change, one small change a day, one day at a time.
