    Cool I CAN do this!

    Just wanted to share my weightless news

    I started this year feeling frumpy and old (yep crazy given I turned 27 in May) I was unfit and found it hard to play with the boys I wanted to make a New Years Resolution so badly but really hated that clich?. It was around the 3rd week in Jan when hubby took a photo of me that I hated what I saw, the reality hit me like a tonne of bricks and I made a choice. I made a goal without a time limit, all I wanted was to be able to run around with my boys and play with them for longer than a minute.

    Since then I have lost 24.5kg. I have gone from being a size 18-20 to now a size 14-16! My health has improved so much, I had a problem with my liver which is now correcting itself, my skin, nails and hair are all healthier and I am feeling great.

    I still have a minimum of 15kg to go (20kg gets me back to per children, but I'd be happy with a loss of 17kg), but I CAN do this, not just for but for my boys too!

    There is no secret, I came off anti depressants (which have a side affect of weight gain) and I'm eating smaller portions, more of the good stuff and less of the not. I still have chips, lollies, chocolate, etc I just don't eat as much of them. I'm also making more effort to exercise, including walking the kids to the bus stop instead of driving.

    Thanks for reading, I just wanted to share my story

    WTG EK! I've been doing the same and like you having great success. It's hard work to start with but more psychological than physical. Next is getting back into exercise.

    I can't wait to really see and feel the changes. People comment but I'm not seeing huge differences yet. Keep going! And hopefully I can post this soon too

    Thank you, I really am in a great place now. I didn't realise how much my weight was affecting me until I started losing it. I actually want to do things now!

    Well done! I've been taking my measurements and that's where I really notice it. I've lost 22cms on my hips alone since mid February.

    Just popping in to update... 12 months since starting I have lost 38kg! I'm down to 72kg and fitting in a size 12-14 (depending on style/make).
    I've fallen off the exercise wagon, due to some health issues mainly, but school holidays didn't help either! My next goal is to get back in to the workforce
