getting back on the wagon......

I have never been hugely overweight, but obesity does run in the family. I am lucky that I "carry" weight well, so even with a BMI of 32 do not look too big.

I successfully went from 81kg down to 65kg with ww a few years ago (the lightest I had been since 18!), but had crept back up to 84kg at the beginning of this year. Over the last 2 years I have tried revisiting the ww plan, calorie counting and excercising, but could not shift the kilos. (I could jog for 10 km though!)

Retrospectively I think the lack of loss was due to stress, and the fact I was commuting between Canberra and Brisbane on a weekly basis for 2 years.

Things have settled back into some form of normality this year, and I am back at ww. I dropped 3.5 kg over the first month, and then plateued for a month, due to lunch provided everyday and not drinking enough water (hard to count points if I have not made it!).

This week however I have made up for the last month, and think I have lost another 1.5 kg - due to a combination of making my own lunch (planning my food for the day if I am to be honest) and a horrible virus that has effectively taken the edge off my appetite. The weigh in is tomorrow!

Thanks for reading my rambling, I am off home to bed, as the dreaded plague has a firm hold, and I really cannot contemplate the lecture on geriatrics scheduled for this afternoon..... :wink:

long story chelle - but it was self funded and study oriented. I am still recovering!

Looks like we are at the same point in our goals .... maybe we can provide some support/friendly competition????
