Hey everyone!! Just wanted to make a quick introduction (apologies if it's in the wrong place!)
My name is ElliotsMum, I'm 32, a mum of one and a student, and i'm here to lose weight.
I've tried several fad diets in the past, and whilst they work short term, I never really learnt how to maintain and eat healthily/portion size/calorie couting etc. So thought i'd sign up here for the 12 week program, and make a lifestyle change, rather than starting "another" diet!!!!!!
I've had a clear out of the junk from my fridge and cupboards, and have also signed up to do the couch to 5k, and will also do home dvd workouts (Jillian Michaels is my favourite!) and would love to find a local zumba class, and yoga! I've worked out my BMR and AMR to calculate how many calories i need daily, and will try to stay within those using a tracker (such as My Fitness Pal or similar)
Ideally, i'd love to lose between 30 - 40kg (which would put my BMI between 19-24), but have set mini goals first (such as losing 5% of my total body weight) to keep myself focused!!!
Any support, tips, a diet buddy or a friendly hello would be most welcome!!! Is there a recipes page/thread anywhere, or have i not found it yet!?!
Hope you're all well and have had a great weekend!!
Love and hugs x
