What are your weight-control goals?
My main goal is to be 75 kilos.
What is your motivation for losing weight?
Life - that's my motivation! I have always felt like I am 20-something, but as the years rolled-on the exterior did not reflect how I felt inside. My father died when he was only 42, and the way I was going I would not be too far behind him. Now I know if I maintain this weight I will far surpass that age and hopefully live a long, happy and healthy life.
What is your weight-loss method?
I think of energy in, energy out; I limit myself to the correct number of calories for the day and I am set. I always exercise at least five to six times a week.

What obstacles have you encountered while losing weight?
Fortunately I make time for exercise and always try to plan ahead for my meals. Some people are now saying I look too thin, but I know that I look and feel better about myself than when I was bigger.
What tips do you have for others who are trying to lose weight?
- Start-off slowly.
- Change you habits slowly.
- Start walking first.
- Start by eating some extra fruit each day.
- Keep your CalorieKing Food and Exercise Diary up-to-date with everything you eat. The more you start to see what foods are really worth in calories, the easier it is to select what foods to eat.
- Don't hurt yourself with exercise. If it's painful then don't do it so hard. Music is my motivation. Set a playlist in your music player that is the time of your exercise. When the playlist is finished, go home and relax. You have finished for the day.
How do you feel now that you're achieving success?
I feel unbelievable! I always thought I could never get to where I am. I can't stop talking about it!
