    Well I think I've been doing pretty well. I did 2 15 minute powerwalks and have also been on my exercise bike every morning. I might do my 3rd Powerwalk this afternoon when DP gets home from work. I did a bit of reserch on the net last nigth and found a pretty handy site on weightloss and exercise so might start doing the exercise plan on it.

    I would carry around 20kg but don't know if I'm supose to. I have a hernia and was told not to lift my kids because the strain will make it bigger. Who knows. Great idea but.

    starting the challenge today, what a cool idea and just what I needed ok here goes,
    1- to get back some energy to keep up with DD toddler
    2- feel healthier than I am at the moment
    3- help my furbaby feel better about himself(a little over weight)
    4- to stop wanting to fall asleep during the day at work.
    5- so I can look in the mirror with out cringing
    6- to be able to wear clothes that don't look like something my grandma would wear
    7- to be able to take DD to swimming lessons
    8- so I can feel sexy about myself again
    9- So I can feel confident in the bedroom (we have mirror doors on the wardrobe yuck!!!)
    10- to do something for me!

    Well apparently I weigh 69.9kg today!!!!!! Will check that again (cause it may mean I lost 3kg last week) cause I think it may be cause I'm dehydrated.

    Well done Schaz!

    I would like to add reason #11 to my list:

    11. Emerald Eye Photography- powered by SmugMug (my engagement photos. Not very flattering)

    aw I think you all look nice Kaz.

    Well Iam really happy becuase I just got back from giving blood today and my haemoglobin levels were 13.5 (11.5 or 12 I think is the minimum you have to be to donate)
    I have had trouble in the past with my iron stores, and being on TF I was wondering how it was going but I was really happy.

    I'm in.
    Joined the gym today. I am 39% body fat and I am committed to getting it to 30% body fat in 6m.
    I dont actually care about the weight - all I want is to be toned and the flesh I show to be toned flesh.

    Here we go!!

    Its really good to see results. It makes saying no to cake and junk worthwhile.

    MrsMac - 5cm is HEAPS!
    Shazz - 7cm is even more HEAPS!! you and MrsMac will be shopping for new wardrobes soon
    Schaz - 2kg is great!
    Mitch - weekends are definitely my danger time - they can be an absolute nightmare if I'm bored or procrastinating because I have more time to eat and greater access to food
    Fi - well done for joining a gym. You sound heaps motivated.
    Kaz - you look fantastic and pip is a sweetie. 3kg is a big loss too.
