Losing weight for Thailand!

Hi! My name is Kate, I'm 27 years old, and currently living in Thailand. For the past three years, I've been teaching English abroad. I really want to lose the weight I've put on since university and travelling. Since the beginning of college (2005), I've been continually putting on weight. I've lost about 25 pounds but I'm still embarrassed about going out on the beach and having to be around all the skinny people.

Hi! My name is Kate, I'm 27 years old, and currently living in Thailand. For the past three years, I've been teaching English abroad. I really want to lose the weight I've put on since university and travelling. Since the beginning of college (2005), I've been continually putting on weight. I've lost about 25 pounds but I'm still embarrassed about going out on the beach and having to be around all the skinny people.

I've tried losing weight before, but I always get distracted or get so frustrated I stop trying. But I've let it go too far and this time I don't want to just lose weight, but become healthy. I can't keep expecting the rolls to melt away or the pant sizes to suddenly get smaller.

I'm hoping that I can find friends and supporters here on Sparkpeople that will help me stick to losing weight this time and develop a healthy lifestyle, and I can help support them in achieving their goals.

I added you back! Enjoy the time you have to travel! It's a lot of fun. Lived in Austria and Russia for a bit a light year ago! Taught English as a second language while in Russia. You can do this....make small habitual changes at a time. For example. Drink 64 oz of water before you drink anything else. Or, switch to skim milk. Or Eat 4 fruits/veg a day before any junk....etc. Just thoughts. Keep in touch. PS. My blogs might be helpful.
