Thanks gigantosaurus!

I'm feeling fairly confident about the exam. It's in 2 hours...eek! BUT then I'm off for 2.5 weeks so I'm really happy about that! Going to focus on my fitness for the next little while. I have a wedding to attend in June and I want to lose another 10lbs by then. Here's hoping this streak sticks.

Official WI is today for me too, and I came in at 170.7lbs. Stoked!!

Congrats on your loss too, gigantosaurus- we are at the same weight! I'm very excited to see the 160s again. I usually sit at 17-something when I am not very careful about my eating habits and don't really exercise. Can't wait to see a change!

I have kept most of my "thinner" clothes from a few years ago and it would be really nice to be able to fit into some of them for this summer. Like going on a shopping spree without spending any money :-)

171.2 today. Up a half pound, but thinking that's a bit of water retention as I've been OP and working out quite a bit. I climbed the hamilton mountain stairs several times the other day and did the c25k yesterday so I'm pretty sore!

Today is back and chest day. wahhhhhh weight training! lol not feeling very motivated at the moment. just want to lay on the couch and chill. BUT these muscles aren't gonna grow by sitting around on my butt!

Hope you all are enjoying your Easter weekend!

Height: 165

Default New and looking for support and companions on this journey!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Avalon I am 23 years old and have decided to join an online community for support and tracking of my (hopeful) progress. I have just weighed myself for the first time in 6 months and have found that I have gained 41 pounds or 19 kilos.

I guess we all have a story as how we came to be overweight. I used to be the weight I currently am around 2 years ago, I put in so much effort, got down to 130 pounds and went on a working holiday, I then came back and went again as I met a man who I was madly in love with, young and na´ve it didn't work out for us and he dumped me while I was holidaying in Greece, I came home and then the drinking started. I simply could not handle the pain and every night it was at least 1-2 bottles of wine and then binging on junk food.

As soon as the weight started to pile on I started withdrawing socially and eating and drinking more. I was too depressed to go to the gym. After I recovered and learnt to care for myself I met my current partner. I now live with him (caused further weight gain) and here I am! Looking to get back to how I was for many reasons. Them being:

- I have to wear stockings or loose pants 24/7 as hate the way my thighs rub
- I cannot fit into any of my old clothes
- I have a lovely face but it is now covered in the evidence of too many veggie burgers
- I miss being able to chuck on a dress and just go out instead of spending time trying to find the outfit I look least boombah in
- I want to be able to swim again and enjoy normal activities
- I avoid cameras like the plague and get extremely upset if anyone even tries to take a photo of me I can't control the anxiety that comes on from it
- I just want to feel free, light and not like I am trapped in a prison
- I avoid going out to social gatherings as I am ashamed of my weight gain

Things that could hinder my progress:

- having a boyfriend who eats at least three dinners and massive amounts of chocolates
- hot chips
- Unsupportive friends who obviously would prefer if I resembled a rhino on nights out

That's not many things actually

I hope to get down to 130 pounds by September, that's one kilo a week (we use kilos in Australia) through eating 1200-1500 calories a day and running/hiking at least 5 times a week.

I wish all of you girls success in this, support is always needed on this journey

xxxx

Sorry about the rant, I just wanted to get it all out on paper (screen)

Welcome, Avalon! Glad to have you here. It's nice to meet another hot chip addict (Hot Cheetos are one of my biggest vices!).

Wannabe, I know how you feel about wanting to just chill out lol. I'm having one of those days (it's legs and booty day for me!), but I know I gotta suck it up and hit the weights if I want thighs and buns of steel for summer!

Good news, I'm at 169.8 today! I checked my weight last Friday and was nearly back up to 173, and I panicked a little. But Aunt Flo came that afternoon, so I waited a few of days to weigh again. I hope I stay in the 160's til my weigh in day (Weds!).

Hope you all have a great start to the week!

Hey ladies!
Welcome Avalon! What an interesting story. I used to have a problem drinking as well but I've been sober nearly 2 years now. Wrecks havoc on your weight eh? Good for you for working through your challenges like the smart, strong and beautiful woman you are!

Gigatosaurus and skittles you are both making excellent progress! Wtg!

Grinchy you are firmly in the 170s at least! doesn't it feel good to move down a decade?

I've been hanging in around the 170 mark the past few days. Official WI at 170.7 yesterday morning. I'm certain that a few pounds will whoosh off in a few days though. I have been doing the c25k 3x/week, weights 2-3x/week and stair climbing 2x/week so I think by body is hanging on to water weight. My muscles are sooo sore but I love knowing that I worked out hard! I can tell that my stamina is increasing and I am stronger. Reaping the benefits of exercise so I can wait for the scale to catch up! New for me because normally I just get frustrated...but I really feel fantastic and I KNOW that if I keep eating well and exercising the weight will come down in due time.

I saw something on facebook that inspired me yesterday. It said: "Strength: A river cuts through rock not because of power but it's persistence"

Have a great week ladies!

Thanks for the encouragement WannaBeNurse I'm sure you'll see the 160s soon . All that toning will pay off.


177.8 Today. It might bounce up tomorrow, but it's a new low so I'll take it!
