Hi there!
I am a fatsecret member for 2 months now and starting loosing weight 3 months ago. I am no fat girl, I just had a bigger belly and big arms and looked a little podgy (I am 165kg (5"5) and weighed 67kg (147lb.

My lifestyle was eating Pizza, Spaghetti and Chocolate on a daily bases, never walk if I could drive, smoking and being a real couch potato.
Then I decided to change my life. Because until I was 16 I was very active, an thin, and the most sportive girl I knew. I have no idea why I changed when I turned 17 and gained 16kg!! And I wanted to finally not say "I used to be thin" but rather say: "Now I am thin again!"

Now I weigh 132lb (60,5kg) and feel so much better. My goal is, to finally get that bikini figure I always wanted (55kg, 121 lb would be grant). Now that I am young I want to enjoy it when somebody takes photos at the beach and I wanna just feel sexy in my Body.

Therefore I changed my Lifestyle a lot! I stopped smoking, stopped buying chocolate, eating Pasta, cut out bread and do sports every day.

I ride to work by bike (3,5km), do Bodypump (Weight training), play Beach-volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, go Climbing, run when it isn't to hot (I currently am in Western Australia and we have summer) and do some other fitness classes in the gym when ever I have time.

A day without sports makes me unhappy by now, I need sports and I love it!
And I don't have any cravings for chocolate anymore. I do have cravings for Pizza, and have one every other week, but it doesn't matter, now, that I am an active person. I do eat more healthy, hardly processed food, a lot of veggies and fruits, lots of brown rice instead of potatoes and salads. Less meat, more fish. I don't count calories anymore and since I don't, I loose weight quicker. I think I eat between 1300 and 2000 kcal a day, depending on the day. And I burn between 2100 and 2400kcal a day, so it is a fairly good amount.

I feel the difference! Men look differently to me, for a long time no seriously hot man flirted to me Embarassed , now I am overwhelmed by what for pretty hot guys are actually interested in me and yeah, that is damn good for my self esteem, I'll tell ya!
And many people I meet doing sports call me the super sportive and strong girl. This makes me so happy, I don't just look way better, its also the way I act, the way I stand, the way I talk, the way I feel that has changed.

I am very very happy and keeping on loosing weight is no big challenge for me anymore, because I have adapted my life to it and it has become normal to me.

I hope here are more people who are going through this and want to share their experience. I really would like to have a buddy that is having a similar time as I am. Somebody who is close to his goals and is actually doing instead of just talking. Somebody that I can talk about and who doesn't starve himself but rather lives a healthy and sportive lifestyle. Cool

What a positive and motivating post! We have a lot in common except the weather Smile I love sports and hate starving myself as well, and our goals are similar. It's great to already have you as a buddy!

Yes it is! Smile Thanks a lot!! So many people motivated me, mainly through the internet when I read through weight loss stories and I wanted to just give back some of all that positive energy!
To be honest I didn't know you were still active, since I saw you didn't update your weight (reached the goal already). But now I see that you are actually updating your journal! I will have to have a look at it. Great you cut down sugar! Something I didn't do (yet).

I don't do weigh-ins since I don't think it's relevant to my goal. It's not weight I'm struggling with, it's fat Smile I'm almost underweight according to my body mass index, but I have a lot of fat around my hips and thighs. I guess becoming leaner for me will ultimately translate into gaining weight, since I need to build muscle.

Yes of cause. I heard people call that skinny fat? When you are very slim but have no muscles and rather fat.

I unfortunately do have some extra kilos to loose. No more then 5 though. I wouldn't mind if I just stayed at 58kg and would therefore have converted my extra fat into some extra muscles! But the 58 I will definitely want to reach!

So today is my last day at work. Since I do research and have my own office I have time for fatsecret Very Happy But now I will be traveling for the next 2 weeks until I head back to cold Germany. So I won't be on fatsecret on a daily base anymore! But I will have a look every other day or so.
