Hi. So I use to weigh 138 pounds (63kg) and now I weigh 129(59). I've being yo-yoing for roughly the past year and I'm sick of it. I HAVE lost weight but not much and I'm still really unhappy, really unfit and in the 'at risk of being overweight' section for my BMI.
My goal weight is 110(50) and I plan to lose 19 pounds(9kg) by November 1st. I've just bought a wii fit, treadmill and am totally cutting out all my junk food beginning tomorrow. It's possible everyone who reckons it isn't. My Aunty did it, she lost 30 pounds in 2 months! :) I just wish my family was more supportive. My Dad deliberately says I'm fat, my brother shoves the food in my face and my Mum just keeps buying more and more junk to store in the cupboards. I don't expect them to cut out all junk for me, but some support would be nicer.
Anyway, back to my point, my Aunty did it while being surrounded with two kids who eat loads but never put on ANY weight, a husband who was never around and no training equiptment at all. The reason why I want to lose weight? One day, while I was walking to Macdonalds an older man walked up next to me and said hi. I smiled. We started chatting and stuff(yes yes, I'm the idiot who talks to strangers I know) and weight was brought up, he asked, 'Well, if you want to lose weight you have to decide, do you want to in reality or in your mind?' I thought it was a stupid question, but said in reality anyway, he chuckled and said, 'Well, if you want reality you must become the doer, if you want mentally you must become the dreamer.' He grinned.
I never met him again but that was after all the yo-yoing, in fact, that was today. I've being thinking now, who cares if my family aren't supportive? If I'm only 12? If I have no friends? If I never meet the man again? I'll always have those man's words in my head. So please, on November 1, look for my succes story. I promise by the end of November 1 2011 it will be there, at 110 pounds. :)
