Starting weight: 60kg
Goal weight: 55kg
So 2 years ago I was almost 80kg and miserable. I'm way too short to carry that much extra weight. One day i decided enough was enough and that I had to lose weight. Some stress at work helped me along.
I've lost 20kg by cutting out most sugar and dairy (lactose intolerance helped too). it's been 2 years since I had chocolate, choc bikkies, lollies, ice-cream etc and I don't even miss them.
I lost the weight doing wii fit, exercise DVDs and eating what I like to call a Nanna diet. I knew this would be forever, it's a lifestyle now.
My Nanna diet is based on what I used to eat when pregnant with GD, only not so much. It's all basic family food, nothing fancy or expensive, just everyday stuff. Lately I've been snacking a little too much. My iron is low so I think that's why.
To lose my final 5kg I really don't want to mess with my diet, just tighten it up and make sure I'm not sneaking any extra snacks in. I've found if I don't eat enough I will lose weight, but it doesn't stay off, just creeps back on when I eat normally again.
So I will need to literally work my butt off to get results. My plan is to use a combo of exercise DVDs, walking/jogging and the gym. My body has gotten used to certain exercises and what I am doing now is just enough to maintain it.
I plan on doing a dvd today and tomorrow. Next week I am having some day surgery and will probably need to rest a few days, then I will be back into it.
