of joining our online club.
What are your weight-control goals?
Over the last few years my weight climbed to a top of almost 100 kg in January 2004. I decided then that this trend had to stop and that I had to shed up to 40 kg as the extra weight was affecting my health, mobility, self-esteem and appearance. I knew that if I passed 100 kg I would lose all hope and not try anymore. All of last year I battled on starting diets, stopping, taking a bit of weight off, putting it back on. Finally, I joined CalorieKing.com.au in January this year (2005) and haven't looked back. It's taken me around six months to lose 10 kg and I have made a commitment to stay with this program for life, as it's the most sensible and responsible weight loss and maintenance program I've ever come across.
What is your motivation for losing weight?
I want to be healthy and get the most I can out of life. I like being active and involved in lots of things and I was conscious of all the limitations I was suffering as a consequence of being obese. I am still on blood pressure and cholesterol-reducing medication and want to eventually remove the need for these. I have a lot more energy and stamina now, and feel a lot happier in myself. I also want to be a good role model for my children.
What is your weight-loss method?
Since joining CalorieKing.com.au, I have kept to the recommended calories for food without any trouble. I certainly get enough to eat. I have found that when I plan my food diary and my exercise, I have more success. Otherwise the temptation is there to "graze" out of boredom or for consolation. At the beginning of my CalorieKing.com.au membership I also went to the pool daily and just walked laps, doing a bit of breaststroke or dogpaddle in the deep end. I would try to do laps for an hour. As I became stronger (I had trouble with my feet due to my last job) I added a short walk a couple of times a week. I also learned to drink a lot more water. The weekly CalorieKing University lessons were extremely helpful and helped to motivate me to focus on my goals.
