New from Western Australia
I am from Perth, Australia and have just joined this website on the weekend. I am four days in and have definitely been motivated by the activity of recording food intake and writing down my thoughts. I have never ever participated in a forum before, but after reading comments by others, I do find it is helpful to have other people in your corner, other than your loved ones at home.
I have slowly struggled with weight gain over the years. I was at 72kg when I got pregnant and only gained (much to my amazement) 11 kg during my pregnancy in 2006/7. I was able to get back to 73kg in the first 6 months, but then started study full time and now work full time. I sporadically do exercise activities, along with getting out and about with my family, but nothing too strenuous. I have been doing Polestar Pilates twice a week for several months now and love how my body feels so much stronger. Shame I can't see the toning under the fat!
I am looking forward to staying motivated and shedding a good 20kg in the long term!
