a weight challenge

Two of my co-DTs over at Kaisercraft, Karen and Nerida, started a weight loss challenge to motivate ladies like me who aim to lose some weight. I am taking the plunge because I am overweight myself. I know it is not too much but I have always been below 110lbs (49.9kilos) before I got pregnant with my daughter Hannah (I was 175lbs 2 years ago). Now, at 5'2", I am at 130+ pounds.


I tried dieting and exercising before and can only get to 120lbs. I would love to get back to my old self and gain the confidence back. This challenge will truly motivate me and inspire me as I go through this with support and encouragement from other participants.

As for February 7, 2011, I am at 61kilos. My goal weight is 50kilos and will try my best to eat right and to exercise more.

My plan: Eat less carbo, watch my calories and use my Timeworks daily.

Wish me luck!

Yay LG - you can do this. I think a lot of us have post-baby weight issues, I know I do. Its time to look after ourselves.

Oh LG what a great challenge, I weigh more than you my friend and do BLAME lol Nate but I know that eating less carbs, and watching my calories is the only way too, I have to stop eating his leftovers, this is a problem I have, I hate waste, but I have 4 baby magpies and 3 big crows who have made friends with me so I will give it to them instead. Is this a plan? I know you can do it, Love MElxx
