Time to move my butt & lose my gut!!

Mon Jan 03, 2011 2:38 pm

Ok, so it's about 12 months until our wedding, which means it's time for me to get my ar*e into gear and lose some weight!

Let's start at the beginning - I'm 25 and currently weight 101kgs. I'm somewhere in between an 16-20 (depending on the brand). And I've had enough of being 'fat'. I've always been a big girl, but I've let myself go and this year I really want to turn things around.

This is me at a wedding last January (as you can tell, I wasn't really in the mood for having my photo taken):

And this is me 10 years ago (yes, in high school - I'm the one on the left!):

Ideally, I'd like to lose about 25 kilos, but honestly I'd be happy with 10-15kg. It's been a long time since I was under 100kgs so even that would be nice!

I'm aiming to go to the gym at least 3 times a week and eat better, I'm giving up smoking as of today and FH and I are going to try and do 'big-shops', rather than grocery shops every two to three days, or just being lazy and getting take away.

I will 'officially' weigh in later today - I don't trust my scales at home as FH's 5 year old likes to play with them and make herself weight 100kgs, so I'll weigh in at the gym. I'll aim to update my weight details at least once a month so I can track how I'm going.

Wish me luck!

Good luck Sarah! You are so close to your first goal! Very exciting!!

I've dropped 10 kilos in recent months from diet and exercise so it can be done!
