50+ to lose

Postby emilye2012 » Tue May 08, 2012 11:29 am

Hello all,

I am new here and this is where I am at now
Age - 22
Weight - 120kg
Height - 165cm
BMI - 44 (thats just a real shame and I feel so yuk) - time to change it though!!

To become more healthier and get all this down I have worked out I need to lost around 51Kg.
That will make me -

Age - 23/24 (by the time I am at my goal)
Weight - 69kg
Height - hoping the same as I like my height.
BMI - 25 (this will make me classified as in the 'healthy' range)

I can not beleive that I am where I am at now, I look back and think of all those days I have said I will start tomorrow, that tomorrow never turns up.
I need to start TODAY!!

I am starting in small amounts, so in 12 weeks I hope to have lost 10kg, anymore and that will be so fantastic, I am so excited about where this journey can take me.

I wish all of you the best of luck on your journey's and hope you all achieve what it is you want to achieve.

Emily xx

Congrats on your decision, Emily and good luck with your journey.
You've got a great attitude which will help you along the way!

I say it to most young women who join up here to lose weight ...

DO IT NOW

while you're young and fabulous. Don't wait to be older and then wonder about how everything could ahve been different. :)

Couldn't agree more!

Hi, Emily
You sound really sensible, knowing that it's going to be a long haul. Whatever happens keep coming in here because we can understand and not judge like 'others' do

Good luck.

Hey all,

Thanks for your kind words!!

I think for the first few weeks, it will be hard, so I will be logging on here pretty much everyday to look at everyone else's story and think well it isnt that hard really.

The thing I have come down to, is that i do love food, but I have found I eat when I am emotional, when something bad is happening, I shove my face with chocolate, cookies, ice cream.
All those little goodies, that we should only have as special treats (we all deserve a treat every now and then).

I have to train my brain to basically eat again, but in a healthy way, teach myself that fruit and veges are our friends, not our enemy.

As I write this, I have a little kiosk maybe 15 steps away, and I feel like going and buying some choc frogs, but I decided to come on here and be strong :)

The only frog I want is a prince charming :P

LOL


Take it a day at a time and look back over your shoulder each time you reach a mini goal, to celebrate how far you've come :)

Hi Emily!

We have the same stats! I know how you feel! After the birth of my 2nd bub I was so depressed about my weight my mum decided to buy me a membership at our local womens gym. I attend 6 days a week and this has become routine. I also take it in 5kg increments so the big number doesn't get too overwhelming.

You just need to take 1 day at a time and gather a great support network around you. I have lost 9.5kg so far but feel SO much better about it! You can do this! If I can you can!

If you would like a support person I would be up for that!! We could email each other or MSN whatever?! I also have an excel spreadsheet where you can enter your data and it works out your loss BMI etc. If you'd like a copy let me know :)

Good Luck on your journey!
