No More Excuses

Good Morning!

Well, its time for me to stop with the excuses and try and tackle my increasing weight gain. Have about 14 kg to lose. Work full time and have a 17 & near 2 year old. Severely lack motivation and the "diet" always starts tomorrow - well today is my tomorrow. 2 fantastic holidays coming up - 6 weeks away and 9 weeks away - none of my clothes fit and I seriously need inspiration. Since having my baby, I have lost all control of who I am and what drives me to reach my goals.

Looking for some help and motivation and encouragement - what helps keep you on your path to achieve your goal?

Hi and welcome, Dani :)

Take a look at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread, then move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you.

Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news.

Take a look at the 12 week plan, as a lot of people have been successful with it, making sure to enter your details into the BMI calculator, to get a calorie allowance tailored to your personal requirements. Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate.

We run daily weigh-in's and you'd be very welcome to join us. The threads can always be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page, bottom on a mobile.

We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too.

It's only left for me to wish you well on your journey :)
