What were your weight-control goals?
I first joined CalorieKing in 2002 and my goal was to lose weight and keep it off, and I did lose 13 kilos. Shortly after that success I fell pregnant with my second child and I kept up my healthy ways and did not gain any additional weight during the pregnancy. As soon as my son was born all the good habits fell by the wayside and 10 kg quickly returned. I returned to CalorieKing in January 2006 determined to lose the 10 kg I'd gained and 10 kg more to ensure I never went back into the 80's again.
What motivated you to lose weight?
During my first pregnancy I spent five weeks in hospital due to high blood pressure and my little baby had to spend two weeks in special care. I wanted to be a good mother, one that would be around, so I had to lower my blood pressure or it would be a lifetime problem. After my second son was born and my heavy weight returned so too did my high blood pressure. Every member in my family takes medication for high blood pressure and I wanted to be the first to control my blood pressure via healthy ways. I had done it once before and I knew I could do it again.
What was your weight-loss method?
Even though I knew the right methods to lose weight, I needed that extra help and knew straight away who to turn to. CalorieKing gave me the right tools to lose weight the first time and I knew that with CalorieKing I would again lose all the weight I needed to. I lost 20 kg in 6 months and I never once set foot into a gym. I used an elliptical walker and free hand weights. I found the weight training helped me a lot: I have not only lost the fat but I have toned my body and changed my shape. Any exercise is beneficial to weight loss and I learned to love doing something everyday. If I missed my exercise session I would feel really guilty and a few jogs around the kitchen table would see me happy. I love the feeling of fitness. I run to the letter box and dance to tunes on the radio, no more sitting back and watching the world go by me, I'm part of it now!
