How to Finally Find a Weight Loss Solution That Will Work for You

Obesity and Weight Loss In Australia

So I had a mate who lived in Australia, this guy weighs 130kg and hasn’t been doing anything but complaining since I met him about how badly he wants to lose weight. Personally, I live miles and miles apart from him so I was worried there wouldn’t be much I could really do to help him, but after we’d talked online long enough playing WOW together I finally told him that we were going to make his dream a reality. Ideally, he wanted to lose 30kg but said he’d settle at 20 if he could gain some lean muscle mass.

And that’s one thing I’ll always suggest when it comes to losing weight, once you’ve made your mind up that it’s what you want, you need to find someone you can trust to see it through to the end with you. Having someone nearby, or in my case far away, that can truly hold you accountable for your actions is a stronger tool than even the most calorie strict meal plan you can find. But even more importantly, it has to be what YOU want. If my friend had just been on the fence about changing his life and body for the better, chances are he would have failed before he even started. The fact is that if you don’t really want it, you won’t get it, so make sure you have the determination to see it through to the end eh?

Diet and exercise

Diet and exercise right? That’s what you always read, over and over, in every magazine, on every article. And it’s true! Those are two things you shouldn’t put on the back burner once you’ve found your motivation. What I WOULD tell you to watch out for is the easy way out… you know what I mean… “Lose weight quick” “get fit fast” “lose 20kg in one week”. for some reason, all we want is quick results, not real results. And I get it, who wouldn’t want to lose weight fast right, but you have to be honest with yourself. Losing weight too quickly is the biggest mistake you can make when dieting, not only is your metabolism going to slow down but when you’re done you’re going to get bigger than ever fast.

Plan of action

That’s why my friend decided to come up with a plan of action because it’s all about the journey and not the destination right? Well… I guess the destination is kind of important when you’re trying to get healthy but don’t neglect how you get there! So we started an online blog, public to the whole world, including all our measurements, and our ideal weight. Loser has to post a video singing “let it go” in an Elsa costume and post it to their countries YouTube. Max 2 kg per week would be counted, winner takes all.

Go to the gym

What a success, we would “go to the gym” together via Skype 3 times a week and chat it up while we worked it out. Shared our meals on our blog, and posted weekly updates of our progress. It was great. There really is nothing like accountability, honesty, and a little friendly competition to make the most effective weight loss program ever. Obviously do your homework, find an exercise plan that works for you, and healthy food options you’re not going to hate. Research at showed that most importantly do it with someone that can push you to not give up.

The payoff

So finally the big payoff, after all, we put in the work and picked our meals carefully. Lean meats, fruits, and vegetables just like every single book ever tells you. We went to the gym 3-4 times a week EVERY week for the entire duration, (and occasionally had a cheat meal or two!). So how did we do? Well, 6 months and a lot of sweat and tears later I had lost 17.8kg! No matter the result, I felt better, I looked better, and I was so proud of myself. And as for my friend? Well, it turns out he had a few more reasons to be proud of himself than me because he dropped an amazing 21.6kg! Needless to say…the snow never bothered me anyway.

One year ago, my weight was about 90 kgs. I posted a picture at that time. I was feeling really so sad about what other people think of me and how they look at me. Since, I lost 20 kgs by eating better and be careful of what I am eating.

I lost 90lbs by eating in moderation and walking a mile or more every day! Starting by giving up empty caloric beverages is a great way to start balancing your diet!

I lost15kgs in one year !! I am going anonymous because I have posted picture of model as my dp in my real account and don’t want anyone to know I am fat 🙁
Personally, I rejected all those fads and started counting calories and exercising more. The clue to doing this successfully is that you must be honest with yourself and you must count accurately. Far too many people ‘forget’ odd bits of food or grossly underestimate the amounts they eat and overestimate the amount of exercise they do”

In April 2018 I weighed 290lbs and had not worked out in over 7 years, I had totally adapted to a sedentary lifestyle. I joined the gym that month and worked out 4-5 day’s a week consistently. Although I didn’t change my eating habit’s, I managed to lose 20lbs in 9 month’s by staying committed to working out. In January 2019 I had gotten down to 270lbs and decided to make a change in my nutrition. During the month of January I stayed committed to working out and eating right. Because I had committed to the nutrition change, I managed to lose 15lbs in 30 day’s. No tricks, no gimmicks. I focused on a diet of high protein, moderate fats and low carbs. I didn’t use any additional supplements, just good clean eating. I’ve continued to eat this way and as of today 11/3/19 my weight is 238lbs. I learned that losing weight is a very difficult task, especially when you don’t focus on nutrition. It’s a constant battle between your mind and the body’s desire to continue to want junk, if you’re able to control your mind, the body will follow. Getting in shape, losing weight, eating right are all a function of controlling your mind. Get your mind right and the rest will be a breeze.

When I had my kid, I gained 60 lbs! I was tired and depressed and the extra weight was making me miserable. I finally decided to get my act together, not just for me but to have a better, healthier life with my son. I got a jogging stroller and went for daily runs with my boy, and just generally stepped up my game to match his highly active lifestyle! In three months, I was down 15 lbs.

Since I was a child I always had a couple of pounds more, try to lower them with diets, but not following them properly or supplementing them with exercise I did not achieve anything until I began to follow the routine designed by a personal trainer and the diet of a nutritionist.

My weight loss journey not only improved my physical health, but my psychological health as well. While some hard workouts are important, I find that CONSISTENCY has always been the key. Even on the days I did not want to exercise I did. I remained consistent with exercise, and while I indulge occasionally in a sweet treat, I maintained consistency with a healthy diet as well.

After being fed up with the way I looked and felt, I made a few lifestyle changes and lost 65 pounds. I worked hard and hope to continue working hard to continue to work towards my healthiest self! I have two beautiful children I need to be in shape to chase around!

Today, I’m 100 pounds lighter than I was when I started my weight loss journey.
My story is not one of overnight success. I didn’t take a magic pill. My results were not from a fad diet or a product from an infomercial.
my journey has been more like a roller coaster ride of trials, many errors, and a collection of small milestones along the way, eventually leading to more than I ever expected to gain.

I was an unhappy girl with no self-esteem, trapped beneath baggy t-shirt and stretchy jeans and desperate to lose weight to just be normal.
I had no idea that it would turn into a journey of self-discovery, freedom, and finding joy.

Struggling with your weight is hard but once you start to lose some weight you get motivated. You need to find the right balance for you of eating well and working out. If you don’t eat well it will not matter how much you work out?

I have always been a heavier person my whole life. I finally decided to crack down on weight loss and really try and get out of the rut i have been in for a few years now.

I started at 200 pounds and am down to 170 and already feeling alot better than i used too.
