What are your weight-control goals?
I had lost 18.5 kg in the last three years since my last baby was born, but have regained 8.5 kg in the last year. I am back on track now, and have lost 2.5 kg so I can't wait to get back down to my target (and below). I would like to reach my target of 70 kg in the next few months when my parents hope to visit. Then, after that, I plan on losing a bit more to get down into the middle of my healthy-weight range. One of my goals is also to try to 'normalise' my eating behaviour and stop the 'skimp, skimp skimp, binge' habit I had developed. I am really trying to take the opportunity to make life-long behavioural changes which I can stick to.
What is your motivation for losing weight?
My original motivation was to get my body back close to the shape it was in before I became pregnant. I managed to lose the 18.5 kg I'd gained during pregnancy, which really felt great. But I then put some of the weight back on. Problems with my liver and general health have encouraged me to lose the excess weight and get back into my healthy-weight range. Also the fact that the weight was creeping back on and my clothes were getting too tight led me to realise the need to make some changes again. I am really working on being able to eat normally and not restrict myself and then binge later. Rather I want to eat a variety of good food and treats, in moderation, and really enjoy them. Someone once told me that you need to learn to "make love" to your food, eat it slowly and enjoy every morsel, not wolf it down...I am really trying!
What is your weight-loss method?
I have never been one to use fad diets as I have had problems with my health and don't want to aggravate anything. So I have always succeeded in losing weight by eating healthy well-balanced meals, limiting my snacks and increasing my exercise. I must say that reducing the snacks and increasing the exercise make the biggest difference as our meals are always well-balanced. It is definitely the extras that stack on the weight.
