And then there's me ;)

I'm a wife and mum of two, with a fairly hectic job that varies between sitting glued to a desk for 8 hours at a time and going heavy, physical labour.

Many years ago I was obese, and I had an epiphany that I was missing out on so much in life. That epiphany led to a determination that I hadn't experienced before. After I gave birth to my first bub I went on to lose nearly 40kg.

I'm a wife and mum of two, with a fairly hectic job that varies between sitting glued to a desk for 8 hours at a time and going heavy, physical labour.

Many years ago I was obese, and I had an epiphany that I was missing out on so much in life. That epiphany led to a determination that I hadn't experienced before. After I gave birth to my first bub I went on to lose nearly 40kg.
I changed my job to something that requires fitness and being a healthy size. Despite this, I manged to gain back a few KG. Fell pregnant and had another bub, and after all was said and done I was sitting at 71kg.
I restarted on Spark again and with the help of a shake diet to get me back into the right frame of mind I'm now down to 67kg. My ultimate goal weight is, and always has been, 65kg.

To this day, people who have met me after my weight loss can't believe that I was ever overweight and are shocked when they see pictures. It's because my life is SO different now that they can't honestly picture me any other way.

So every now and then I realise the KGs are sneaking back on again and that I'm going back to unhealthy ways of living. I pick myself up, dust myself off, and get back to normal and things sort themselves out.
I'm in the middle of a reboot now after gaining a bit of weight thanks to surgery. I want to feel comfortable again in my body, so I'm going through a refresher and clearing out the nasty habits that have snuck back in.

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I really was feeling so down on myself, but you are exactly right. I was giving myself too many rules. Thank you for basically taking control of my healthy-habits-gone-wrong, lol. I think I really will implement the things you posted. Thanks again; that was some spot on support, and I really needed it.

Whoops, I forgot that I left a comment, lol. I've been combing the message boards trying to find like-minded people. I knew when you sent me that message that you're profile looked familiar! Haha. I am really happy to be chatting with you. I didn't know about you being a linguist before, and that is fantastic. And I am definitely looking forward to the family-like atmosphere and really just being part of an amazing group of people.

Hey, I saw your post about how you joined the Air Force, and lost 80 lbs to do so. I need to lose about 65 before talking to a recruiter. I know you said you hated exercising--what were some of the things you did to achieve your goals? What do you do for the AF? Any words of wisdom for being a female in the military?
