    Default I'm getting off this crap ride...

    I'm so over the merry go round...

    I seem to love these threads and go well for a bit and then lose my focus again. I have been hovering between 61-63kg for months and months! I did get down to 59kg at one point a couple of months ago and started to feel more comfortable in my own skin, so I know I can do this!

    My ideal weight is 55kg but at the moment I'd be happy to be 59kg and then stoked with 57kg. So the ultimate goal is 55kg.

    I took my measurements first thing this morning but I forgot to weigh myself - I like to do it when I get up so I'll post this tomorrow.

    Here they are:

    Waist - 80cm
    Hips - 99cm
    Bust - 98.5cm
    Right leg - 60.5cm
    Left leg - 59.5cm
    Right arm - 32cm
    Left arm - 30.5cm
    Weight - 61kg

    I tend to carry weight around my middle - I think I'm an apple shape but I also have a bit on my arms.

    My plan is to do yoga 2-3 times a week and walking. For me I know the key to losing weight is what I eat. To give me a jump start I'm cutting all processed carbs including sugar and will be indulging in salads, whole grains and protein based meals. Snack will be nuts, dried fruit and fresh fruit. I will also stop eating after dinner.

    Good luck!

    It sucks when you're doing all the right thinks but your weight remains the same. Mine is doing that too... Though I'm at 71kg.

    I hope making these changes will help get the weight moving again! xx

    Good luck Babyla! Eating after dinner is a big problem for me too. Are you going to try to stop completely or just have something small and healthy?

    Good luck babyla! Sounds like you have a good plan.

    I just got an app called "zombies, run!" which is a 0-5k walking/ running app. You listen to a story were you're being chased by zombies and being sent on missions. It's actually making me excited to go for a walk. There's heaps of free fitness apps, you may find one of them really motivating?

    Hi babyla, you've got some great plans for losing those last few kilos. Only thing I saw that I went 'uh oh' was the dried fruit. You said you want to cut out all processed carbs including sugar. Well, dried fruit tends to contain considerably more sugar than fresh fruit. For example, grapes are around 5% sugar and sultanas are 30% sugar. You'll notice you will crave sweets after eating dried fruit, as eating sugar makes you want to eat more sugar. It's best to avoid dried fruit in order to keep hunger and cravings under control and to lose weight
