Hi everyone. I've been reading other posts, goals and successes since New Year so thought it was about time I said hello as a newbie. So far so good, in the past three weeks I have lost 7kg by eating approx 1400cals a day. My husband has kindly taken the remaining Christmas chocolates to work out of my reach and temptation.
Altogether aiming to lose 28kg to get to a healthy BMI although my first goal is to lose another 8kg so I'm no longer classed as obese. I've been in this category for as long as I remember and now with two young children (9weeks and 3years) I want to provide them with a healthy role model and in turn have more energy to run, play and climb with my boys!
I have found the reduced calories ok as long as I plan my meals in advance but the thought of adding 150 minutes of exercise a week fills me with fear. But that's my goal next week! Or in fact my goal is to do atleast 30 minutes of planned exercise, which I think is a more realistic start for me. Thanks to those who have posted since new year and given me the encouragement to start this journey to healthiness!
