I haven't posted in here yet but have been following your posts regularly
Would you mind if I joined in (even though we're almost in mid-May
can you believe it?!)? I was happy with the weight I was on our wedding day but not thrilled.. I started WW about 10 months before the wedding at 82kg and got down to 78kg (which my leader set as my goal weight) and then stopped going.. 4kg loss just wasn't enough to really motivate me..and so I bounced back up to 81kg very quickly and sat there until the wedding
then honeymoon pushed me up to 84kg - the heaviest I have EVER been! and I have managed to get myself back to just under 82 without doing too much.. but my all time goal is to get to 72kg (I am 179cm tall and this is within my healthy weight range according to WW). I would like to do this properly but without going overboard and then not being able to maintain it.. so I have started using CK instead of the WW online tool, I am trying to stick to my 20 point allowance that I was on during my time at WW (OLD points system) and do some exercise each day (35 min walk to the train station or 30 mins dancing with WII game) but I am just not seeing much change.. I lost 2.5kg in my first week at WW and now I am lucky to see 200g shift off...
I'm thinking it is my exercise that is the problem not my food.. I probably need to do double the amount to shift the weight. I just can't afford a gym membership right now. I would LOVE to have an exercise buddy (which was meant to be DH but he chickened out) but I have no friends in my area.. I feel like my mum (who we are living with while our house is being built) is really starting to notice that I am heavier at the moment which makes me feel like crud..I catch her looking at my waist sometimes and I just know what she is thinking..
I just want to cry and cry and cry right now..
Does anyone know what 20 points equates to in calories so I can set my daily limit in CK?
Hopefully your ladies' successes will keep me motivated. Oh geeze, sorry for such a long post..
