Hi ladies - I am new to this site and would like to join the weight loss thread please!!!!

I think I will weigh myself on Fridays!

I was about 67 last week I think. My goal is to lose 2 kilos this month. So 65 by the end of May!! (My fiances 30th is on the 29th!).

My wedding is not for another 1.5 years...but I want to start losing now and to maintain it. I think the earlier I can make the right changes the better.

I also want to start looking for dresses in about 6 months....so if i can get down to around about 60 in 6 months for dress shopping I will be ecstatic!

I'm in.

Last weigh in at Weight Watchers, I was 103.2. I want to be under 100 before the month is out. Preferably around 98 I have 9 weeks until the wedding, I want to try and lose 10 kgs before that. Actually, I have no choice. I thought I would lose weight and ordered my dress in January 1 size smaller then what fit. I now realise I'm an idiot. The dress has about 4 cm to do up.

To reach my goal, I'm doing weight watchers and I have also started taking Duramine. A little hesitant because my sisters ex-boyfriend took it and he turned into a psycho. I have also taken reductil before, but had to stop because it gave me heart pains. Reductil worked amazing for my brother, he lost 25 kgs when taking it.

My aims are, no cake. I have a soft spot for cake. NO CAKE!!

hey ladies, hope you dont mind if I join in, , I dont really need to loose much, just a couple of kilos and tone up a bit, but my goal is to get fit and back on track with exercise, i have been sick recently and lost all my energy and this seems like a great place to get some motivation back!

I am also a nutrition and food nut if anyone has any questions I am happy to chat, I lost 39 kg over the last 3 years and have loved learning as much as possible about food and health along the way =)

Ok so I am back after my walk. FH's nightshift cycle has finished for another 4 weeks so I will be able to get to the gym again. I aim to go 5 days a week (and generally stick to it except for when FH is on nightshift because I have no one to watch the kids). This Sunday, I am running the 8km Mothers Day Classic. It's been 6 years since I could comfortably run 8km :cry: but I set myself a goal of doing it 7 weeks ago and have been working really hard! This should give me a great kick start to May! I would love to lose 4 kg this month, but would be happy with 3.

I'm a little late but I'm in too.

I weighed in yesterday and have lost a whopping 0.2kg :P I figure my body is adjusting back to eating food again after being sick. I have upped the exercise this week too, so hopefully that will make a difference.

Thanks xoxbubxox :D
I did my 8km this morning! I didn't stop (which was my goal) and finished in 1:04:32. I am really happy, I gave it all I could and most importantly didn't give up! :mrgreen:

Good effort alwayz_shopping! :)

I'm kinda annoyed, the Fernwood I was going to moved premises and now the group fitness classroom is way smaller. To be honest though, I haven't gone in like two weeks. I blame Easter, I was going pretty well but then Easter screwed up my routine and I just haven't been back. I'm thinking now that I'll cancel my gym membership since it's such a hassle to get there now and the facilities aren't as good. Unfortunately FH works much later at night than I do (he usually works until about 6:30pm) so I can't really go to the gym with him either, which is a bummer. I'm contemplating giving the 'Lose Weight in 8' exercise program from Exercise TV a go (see http://www.exercisetv.tv/loseweightin8/ ... ced:050411). It looks pretty good and I think it might help me to have a solid schedule of workouts for the next two months, plus it's only $12.95 which is a lot more affordable than $27 per week at the gym! Not sure if we're allowed to buy it in Australia though (I want the online version) so I'll have to check it out tonight. They also have a free workout plan (see http://www.exercisetv.tv/workout-plans/) called 'sexy summer body' that looks good, and you can't get much better than free :)

I'm having a lot of negative thoughts about myself. I really want to lose about 10kg before the wedding but haven't been feeling motivated and then I'm beating myself up about being lazy which just makes me feel worse...I keep thinking to myself 'geez, if you can't even get fit for one of the biggest days of your life, looks like you're always going to be overweight'...like, what happens when I have a baby and stuff? I don't want to 'let myself go' :/

Welcome girls!!

I wish I could be good every day! Weekends I blow out and weekdays I am good!! I thibkni would get to goal so much faster if I just could be better on weekends!

Anyway, I did two classes this morning and burnt 857 cals! And one of those classes was pump! So happy for a good start to the week! Had my protein shake and now I am off to help in my DD's classroom. Will have lunch ( fish & salad) when I get back.

Hope everyone has a great week!
