What were your weight-control goals?

My main goals were to be happy within myself, and to be able to look in my wardrobe and not cry about what was going to fit me this week. Also, one of my goals was to complete a fun run by my husband's side just to show him I could do it, as he's always wanted me to join him.

What motivated you to lose weight?

My main motivation was handing over a lot of money to a personal trainer who was going to push me to my limits, three times a week for 11 weeks. Just seeing that money made me think, "I better make this work this time round." I was confident this was going to work for me as I enjoy the gym and lifting weights. After one week of dedicated training with my personal trainer and also doing traditional cardio at gym and home, I could see a difference in my body and how I felt. Every week, I improved in fitness tests and strength, which put me on such a high I just had to keep going. Every week without fail I was also losing 0.5kg, which really surprised me as it felt quite easy. I had been on a plateau for so long and when the scale moved, it was always up. Just seeing this small loss kept me going, especially when that loss became a weekly achievement.

What was your weight-loss method?

My method is to work out, sweat, move, for at least 30 minutes a day. I go to the gym in the morning 5 times a week, doing weights and cardio. When I came home I would either go for a run or walk the dog or go rollerblading or do fitball exercises. On the weekend, I did casual workouts, like bike riding or doing the '1000 steps' which is a set of 1000 steps in Melbourne. In the short term, my method was cardio and I was always pushing myself that little bit more each time so my body didn't get accustomed to the workouts.

What were some obstacles you encountered while losing weight?

Food! Food was my obstacle. I'm a healthy eater and I know what's right, but sometimes I would have too much of certain foods. Plus I have a really sweet tooth and my cravings were for lollies, and anything with sugar. Learning to control how much and what went into my mouth has become a new lifestyle change. I also found nights in front of the TV difficult. I would sit there from home time till bed and just munch away on whatever I felt like without realising what I was eating. So now I only watch the TV shows that I really want to watch and when that's over I will find something else to do to keep my mind and hands busy. was often a savior in my many troubled times of just wanting to eat.

What tips do you have for others who are trying to lose weight?

Believe in yourself, do it for yourself. Never look at it as a diet, it's a lifestyle change as you are in this for the long run, not a short term fix. If you fall down, which is normal as I did on many occasions, pick yourself up, admit what happened and move forward. Don't look back, don't dwell on past mistakes. Look towards your future goal and head towards it.

How do you feel now that you've lost weight?

I feel on top of the world. I gloat, I walk with a spring in my step. I've gained my self-esteem back and I no longer fear my wardrobe. Going to the gym is now a habit. I wake up at 6am and walk out the door without a second thought or excuse about why I can't. I start the day with loads of energy which doesn't end until I hit the pillow at night. I can go and go and go.

How have the products or services offered by helped you to lose weight?

The Food and Exercise Diary has helped me be 100% truthful to myself. Knowing what my input versus output is helped me balance my eating and exercise. I have also got to give a big cheer to the support of my friends in the CalorieKing community, my husband and my personal trainer. They all helped encourage me, support me, and traveled with me on my journey. I can't thank them enough for always being there, no matter what.
