On my way to the Beginning I hope!

Ok so I was a pretty good size growing up, an average weight.

My mum and oldest sister were very skinny and called my little sister and I overweight.

My little sister went bullemic and is now a AU size 8.

My older sister had kids, and is now an AU size 10.

My mum is a size 7.

I moved to a cold climate after high school. I only knew how to cook pasta and because it was cheap. To top it all off I started working for IBM, and combined with Uni (still) I live an extremely sedentary lifestyle.

I am 120kg (264lb). Since my wedding day in December I have gained 5 kilos, though I knew I would gain a little from quitting.

Still, quitting was part of me "get healthy and fit" kick. And I've quit. I think it's time to start on the other things.

My nutritionist says I need to eat more frequently and control my portion size. I'm eating a lot healthier than I used to, veggies etc. I know how to cook now and what I'm supposed to eat (having lost 30kg a few years ago which I put back on).

I've been starting to do more walking, which is benefiting both myself and my dog. Last night I bought different food which is tasty and healthy.

Today I am doing something smart and stupid. I am removing the chocolate from my house... :D

  • removing chocolate!!!!!:eek:

    But hey good for you, you are really preparing your body for what you plan next year arent you :)

    I bet your dog is enjoying the longer walks too, what breed is she/he?

    Right, so we now have a double support going on here, to continue with the quit and to loose the weight. You have bravely put down your weight today so why not put it in you thread each saturday? It would be great to cheer you on for that too.

    I really want to have the baby when I am a lot healthier. For me and the baby. Personally I'd love to be all fit and lovely before I have the baby!

    Arty (Artemas) is loving the long walks, he is a Golden Retriever and though he is skinny he is very unfit!

    This is him:

    Anywho, I think I really will need the support. Wish I had more time so I could go to the gym as well. Putting the weight down is scary! And putting it into lb was even worse :(

    I'm looking forward to dropping that number whilst still having something each day that I like. I'm trying to ease myself into my new diet, which is based off of intelligence and not a fad. Today I've got chocolate milk.

    I've done well I think in the last two days. I've had berries and yoghurt for breakfast; an apple and two rye biscuits with philly cheese on them for morning tea; skipped lunch; an apple for afternoon tea; and an attempt at something healthy for dinner. Last night it was subway. Tonight it is Indian - one I've not tried before "Tikka Masala" with rice and pappadums (ps?). I know that it's probably not very healthy but was running on low funds and lettuce at the shop was terrible!

    Went for a long walk last night too, but I think arty and I were over it by then. Both he and I were exhausted and it was the same walk we did the other day. It also took longer I think - about 35 minutes!
