    Default Need to lose weight... But....

    I neeeeeeed to lose like 40kgs but I have no motivation and I can't afford to go to a gym and plus I have the 2 little ones. And I get embarrassed if I go for a walk and push the double pram up one of the many hills around here coz I get so puffed and then on top of it I have asthma which I no isn't a excuse, I weigh like 85kgs it's mainly baby weight. And then weight iv put on after. I feel like a blob and I look like one. In my Christmas pic with the kids (I had to sit with Santa coz they freaked out) I look like a marshmallow. I use to look hot! And be proud of what I look like now I'm ashamed of my self. This is the first time iv admitted this to anyone

    Do body trim! The weight will just fall off you!
    Its a protein diet that triggers your body's metabolism.
    I know how you feel ... i'm nearly done losing my weight but im finding it hard to lose the last 5kgs...
    I can't d body trim anymore as im so picky with my food im gonna vomit if I see another slice of ham or a hard boiled egg again!!!

    I also have to lose around 40 kilos but cant seem to find the motivation, but know I need to do it! I tried Body Trim, but like you knomie I couldnt stand all the meat and eggs lol. Tried Weight watchers a couple of times but just fall off the band wagon. I have tried doing it on my own a million times but I last around 3 weeks before I go back to bad habits Im thinking of trying Lite n Easy next

    I'm in the process of losing weight for ivf. So I have baby motivation but I started simply cut the junk as much as is possible and I go up the stairs to the third floor to pee at work 5 days a week. So those hills are great who cares if u look like your going to collapse if people stare at least your trying at first heaps will fall off and that will motivate you. I'm sure the ladies on the third floor must think I'm some big wheezing pig while I'm puffing while I recover and pee but I don't care this is for me and my future

    I lost 22kg through diet & exercise. Nothing works long term apart from that - it needs to be a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. I can give you heaps of help but I feel like rubbish today so can't be bothered to type it all out. I've just gone on mat leave from a gym where I worked as a nutrition coach. Yep, from fat girl to food coach. I'm almost a qualified PT too. I'll come back soon though when I'm better.

    That's the best way. Forget diets, start a lifestyle change, it's the only way you will ever succeed in the long term. Healthy eating and being active.

    It is absolutely true that the only thing that truly works in the long term is watch your diet and exercise but I am always the exception to the rule .. darn it! Last year I decided to go on a major health kick as I had about 12 kgs to lose. Sounds easy right? WRONG! I worked out at the gym 4 days a week (2 of those sessions was with a PT). I also had a nutritionist and was following her diet 90% of the time. After 8 weeks I had lost about 25cm overall but only 1kg of weight! That was enough to get me investigating as clearly something wasn't right. I then fell pregnant beginning of this year and I stacked on 10 kg's just like that! It felt like it had happened in a span of 2 weeks! Anyways, I now have an acupuncturist and a naturopath who I see regularly to get to the bottom of what is going on but for me it seems it's all hormonal imbalances and a very big deficiency with ALOT of vitamins! Thankfully I've noticed that my bloating hs gone down and although I haven't lost any weight yet even though I do Zumba at least 3-4 times a week, I know I'm on my way .. hopefully.

    Not sure why I felt compelled to write all of that .. I'm hoping it helps someone who reads it
