Hello Nyaramula!
Tracy Nyaramula is at goal or a hair away from goal. She is the walkcercise and home fitness video expert. She is also a very wise woman with lots of sound advise on excercise and life. She is my go-to person for that.
Can recommend her blogs - lots of humour
Enjoy

Try and dig deep for some motivation...why? Cos we are going into winter now and you are still under 100kgs but if you don't find some motivation, then like me and others you will wake up come summer time over 100kgs and then the year after you will be 110 etc etc. By the time you find REAL motivation you have 25-35kgs to lose. I went from a size 10 (62kgs) to a whopping 48 (118kgs) which for me was 48kgs to lose since I am making 70kgs my goal. I was 62kgs between 19-25 and don't think I'll manage that again. But at nearly 50 I'll be more than happy at 70kgs.
Anyway the point was I wish I had found some motivation when I only had 10kgs to lose. I'd be at goal now and looking FANTASTIC. Sigh

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

Its a nightmare up here, i miss the beach so much! you are very lucky i would love to take my little one for walks everyday. Gym is not an option at the moment with the little one and going back to work soon, altho i have a home gym which i need to put to use instead of being a clothes hanger hehe. Its so nice to find a site where others are in the same boat and help motivate each other as thats my biggest downfall, i can lose the weight just dont have any motivation :(

My sister who lived in Midrand before moving to the UK also used to complain about the lack of pleasant walking environment. We are surrounded by forests and being the Garden Route, we are geared for tourists and walks in the Botanical Gardens which border the Outeniqua Forests are simply amazing. But every which way I turn is a magnificent walk....so I have no excuse for not walking. But even if money is tight, I live pretty centrally and walking across town to the furthest point is probably 7-8kms max which is quite doable for me (with stiffness the following day) emoticon
So what is it for you....gym?

I got really serious from the beginning of Nov 2009. So the weight lost has been since then which is now 5 months. It's easier than you think. I honestly don't feel as if its hard, I also don't starve. I eat well, including a dessert every day of jelly/yogurt&fruit and I walk everywhere practically (but then I do live in the little peaceful town of George - near Cape Town)
