I spent two months eating in restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner… so inevitably I’ve put on some weight. Thankfully I didn’t regain all the weight I’d already lost, but it was still around 6 or 7 kilos.
Now I’m back to my old routine and it’s time for me to focus on getting skinny. The diet starts tomorrow (for real!) 14 months ago
I put on so much weight in recent years and I am so uncomfortable. I started on a weight loss journey about 3 months ago. So far I’ve only lost about 6kg and seem to have come to a stop. I’m not putting it back on but I’m not losing any more either and I still have another 30 to go!! I’m still exercising 3-4 times a week but really need to watch the food. Maybe Lite & Easy is the answer – take away any thinking about it and get myself kick started again! 17 months ago
Basically, I’m just drinking a lot of water, walking 20-30 minutes a day and doing Pilates or toning exercises, and eating a target of 1220 calories a day. It’s also been a journey of faith, because I’ve tried and failed so many times to lose the weight, only to falter a week or two later.
To everyone working on this goal, keep up the good work, it’s worth it! 17 months ago
I’m now down 16.5kg (about 36lbs), so I’ve passed the half way mark.
It’s hard work, but completely worth the effort.
I’m aiming to drop 1 more dress size – about 6kg / 13lbs – before my holiday in mid November.
I bought my first pair of skinny jeans in fuschia pink recently and absolutely love them. 17 months ago
I’m now 3 months into my diet plan and 10kg down! Yay! I think that’s about 22lbs.
June was hard with so many visitors and events, so although I didn’t lose any weight then, I didn’t put on any either.
July has been awesome and I’m looking forward to August. I actually want to eat healthy these days and do exercise… it’s great! 19 months ago
This is the first time in my life that I will be trying something like this. 20 months ago
I’m amazed I’ve managed to stick with this diet a full 4 weeks.
Best of all, I’ve lost 5kg! That’s almost a full dress size down.
Apparently it was Kate Moss who claimed that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels… well she’s obviously never been to my local chocolate shop! I have to avoid it these days, but I’m allowing myself an indulgent treat once a fortnight so I don’t go completely crazy.
Now I’m getting ready for month 2. I’ve decided to take up swimming next week. Salsa classes and swimming – that’s so much more exercise than I’ve done in such a long time! 21 months ago
Despite my good intentions and enthusiasm, I haven’t been able to stick to my plans so far. So when my mother asked me to join Jenny Craig with her, claiming that she would pay for everything, I figured there was nothing to lose except kilos (and grams, pounds, inches, stones, cm’s, etc).
To my pure surprise & delight, the food is pretty good! I’ve managed 2 full weeks now and I think the only reason I can stick with it is because I don’t have to think or plan anything, it’s all done for me. It fits my natural state of laziness perfectly.
Week 1 I lost only 1kg, and this week I lost 1.6kg. I’m not even 1/10th of the way to my goal yet, but I’m feeling positive that I can easily manage this diet long term.
Anyway, the future will reveal all. 22 months ago
I’ve been through the multitude of diet books in my library and this time I’ve chosen The 4 Hour Body by Tim Ferris.
Basically it is designed to achieve the maximum results with the minimum amount of effort, combined with a low carb diet for 6 boring days of the week, then a cheat day to eat whatever I’ve been craving.
I bought a kettle bell for some exercise, and will combine it with some yoga and walking. I did this diet for a month last year and know the downsides, so I’m pretty confident that with the right mental attitude, I can succeed.
Today is day 1! 23 months ago
I’m finally in recovery after spending the last two months very ill. The only benefit was that the hospital tested my thyroid and discovered that there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. So now I can’t use that idea as an excuse!
I managed 10 minutes in the gym today, which might not sound like much, and I was prepared to do more, but I started to feel my pulse racing through my head which I decided wasn’t safe considering my brain is full of blood clots.
I’m going to take a little bit each day and even if it’s only 10 minutes, I’ll make those 10 minutes work for me.
I think I might kick start my diet again with a raw food week from the 1st April. 23 months ago
I’ve been working on this goal for a week now and have lost 3kg.
I discovered a way to make my days slow down – diet! Every second feels like an eternity.
I started walking morning and night for 1 hour. At first it was really hard because I’m really lazy, but now I’m getting into a routine and starting to enjoy it.
Each morning when my alarm goes off at 6am and I don’t want to get out of bed for my walk, I tell myself “That attitude never got you fit and slim in the past”. Which seems to do the trick and have me out of bed pretty fast. 2 years ago
I haven’t always been fat, I just piled it on at lightening speed over the past couple of years. Because it happened so suddenly, I feel awkward looking at myself and can’t find ways to appreciate myself however I appear. I have to lose the weight and I don’t want to leave it any longer. I’ve decided that 2012 is my life changing year in all aspects and I know that getting slim will change my emotional outlook better than anything else. 2 years ago
I started eating healthier 3 weeks ago and I’ve lost 3kg, nice start, if I keep going at this rate I’ll reach my goal by 18th May 2012 :)
The countdown is on! 2 years ago
