86kg to loose

Postby Fat piggy » Tue Feb 14, 2012 2:32 pm

OK so here I am.

Yesterday I bought a new scale because mine only goes to 150kg and for the last year I was not able to weigh myself because it only shows an error. :oops: The new scale can now go to 180kg. All the way home I was afraid to get on the scale because what it my weight is more than 180kg.

Feeling very down I got on the scale with clothes and all and my weight - 167.9kg :shock:

For the rest of the night I was :? What to do and were to start? I want to run away but I can not run way from my fat. It follows me where ever I go.

This morning I asked my daughter (16 years) to get on the scale and her weight 89kg she would like to weigh 65 kg so she need to loose 24kg. This morning when I got on the scale my weight was 161.1kg I would like to weigh 75kg so I need to loose 86kg. :shock:

So we are going to break down the goals into 5kg. We will start on the 15 February and see if we can loose it in 3 weeks so 7 March. If we loose it faster then good for us.

I must be honest with myself and say that feels as if I have to climb Mount Everest with out any training so I will take one step at a time and take one day at a time.

I have no support other than my daughter so I hope that this forum will help to keep me motivated.

Hi and welcome!!

You are not alone and this is a great place to find motivation and support.....

Do you have a plan to lose weight?

If you are going to calorie count the I suggest trying one of the on-line tools such as myfitnesspal (can also get it on your mobile)

I am no expert - just the same as you - with about 60kg's to lose... so far I have lost nearly 5kg's in 5 weeks..... I would just say don't set your goals too high and be happy with any loss. I have had weeks where I have only lost 200g and although it is disappointing - it is also a loss - so that is positive!!

Feel free to fire questions at me - if I can help I will, if not I am sure someone else will be able to!!

Take Care

Hi and Welcome to the forum,

Vicki said it all, baby steps, but make that start, it will get easier. Give yourself little gifts/treats along the way, something nice to eat that is normally too expensive, my fav at the moment is lychees, they are like my lollies, so refreshing and sweet.

Drink lots of water and start to walk, even around your backyard, then the block, then add more blocks.

Keep coming back here.

Hi, I am new here but saw your post while snooping and had to reply, because our weight loss goals are around the same figure. Scary thought that we want to lose the weight of another whole person huh? Anyway, I have about 80kg to lose and this is it, this time it has to happen! Hope to see you around the boards, and wishing you lots of strength!

Happened to randomly come across this old thread and it saddens me to see these and many other posts like these.. Just the 1 post from obviously a person in a lot of distress, you do wonder about the stories of such people, hopefully they went on to lose some weight but more likely a couple of years down the track they are probably in the same place or worse..

If there's any lurker out there reading this, just think, it's NEVER too late to make that change.. Register on here and make a difference to YOU.. No one else is going to turn this around except yourself so make the first step and get some support and advice..

Yes it is sad to read posts like that. :(
What is really disheartening is that if they had followed through they could have lost that 86 kilos by now.

That number resonates will me. It is only a kilo less than what I ended up losing and they posted their post just 11 days before I reached goal.
And I know about the stuff with the scales too. The first scales I bought only went to 120 or 130kg so I had to bring them back to the shop. Bought the 150kg limit one - and found out I was 3.7kg heavier than that! I kept them though...figured that I would be under the 150kg limit soon anyway and that the scales should be able to cope in the meantime.

I wish I was around then...I could have given that hope and support. :(

Sad, but not uncommon. Many people reach out for help but when they realise the road to recovery has got to start from within themselves, it becomes too hard, too daunting and so they give up before they even begin! :(

They only look up and see the mountain...they forget that there is a great view from the top.

Yup all pretty sad but you don't have to sign up for mountaineering lessons, just start with gentle strolls through the valleys and work your way up higher from there..

There is a lot to be said for pacing. This is definitely a marathon not a sprint.

Love the pic Diva! :D

In the movie "The Agony and the Ecstasy", the Pope fed up with the length of time it is taking Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel yells up at him; "when will it be finished?!"...Michelangelo yells down to him - "when it is done!!!"

It takes as long as it takes. Better to get it right than to rush a masterpiece. It took Michelangelo four years to paint the ceiling...and another two and a half years to paint the altar wall. Hopefully it want take you nearly as long JP before you finish! :lol:
