View Full Version : First day here, and a mini goal!

Hi! I only joined yesterday, but I thought I would post about my mini goal.
December last year I weighed in at a huge (for me) 85 kilos (Or 187 pounds, sorry I'm Australian so pounds are foreign for me!) which I had piled on since moving out of home and interstate. I ended up moving back home and trying to lose the weight, I managed to get down to 74 (or 163) in just a few weeks only to put almost all of back on because of the WAY I did it. I lost it too quickly from basically starving myself amoung other things, and when I finally stopped my habits all went back to how they used to be.
I want to try again, but in a healthy, sustainable that's why I am here! I started 2 weeks ago at 78 (171) and I am now at my first mini goal, 75 (165) and hoping to get down to my final goal of 60 (132).

I hope I can do it....for good this time!!
I want to post link here to some photos of my current weight, which I am going to use as before photos for motivation, but it won't let me post it yet. I wish I had proper before photos from when I was 85kg, but I didn't want to look at a mirror let alone take photos back then!
Still not super comfortable with these, but I think it will really help my motivation. I will add the link once I am able to, but for now my photos are linked in my blog.

Wish me luck!

Congrats, and welcome! Doing it the healthy way does seem to take a bit more time than some of the less healthy ways, but so far it seems a lot easier to maintain. Good luck on your journey!
