I remember my HSC year :( It was terrible, I made so many unhealthy choices such as having maccas or kfc, drinking so many bottles of soda and coffee. It all came to my formal, when every dress I tried looked absolutely terrible and I started to hate myself for being so fat.

I started blaming my family for feeding me so much and blah blah blah! But then I realised it was my decision and my life! When I started my journey I was 162cm tall and almost 80 kilos. Yup, I was like a balloon. From December 1st 2012 to today, I have lost exactly 28 kilos. I am currently 164cm tall and 50 kilos and it feels so good.

It was so hard at the very start. I didn't wanna go gym, cos I felt so ashamed of my weight. I started running in my backyard everyday for around 45 minutes. Slowly I completely took out soda from my life. It was hard, but it was worth. Drank green tea and lemon water. Also did the salt water flush, which is great! By January 2013, I was able to buy myself a trampoline and a treadmill. Best thing ever! I used to and still do eat 3 meals a day but healthy choices.

So that is it! Drink 2 litres of water. No soda. Try lemon water. Exercise around 30 minutes a day is good. And remember it is about being healthy and not skinny! :)

You were about 5'4" tall and weighed 176lbs.. ouch that is a lot at that time. I have to congratulate you on loosing a good amount of weight... and being healthy. I need to loose a tonne of weight lol. I only want to lose this weight in order to have a good physique (i.e. I'm not just going to lose weight only).

ShayK, you should also try considering yoga classes. It's just a thought, but it's good (I think).

Even if you eat junk food, its impossible to get fat if you do a certain degree of exercise (just run hardcore for half an hour a day). doesnt take much time and after the first few days of being torture it actually becomes really FUN :D Also you can study and exercise at same time (e.g. revise everything you learned in class that day whilst you run, or plan what youre going to do for the rest of the day). Lol this also sounds weird but if you are memorising an essay you can cut it into pieces and stick it at diff. intervals so after running a certain amount of laps you pick up and have to memorise that part of the essay until you hit the next part. Or do specific dance moves to memorise certain formulas LOL. But there are lots of fun stuff......also when you exercise you naturally stop craving junk food and want something that actually good for your body
this is idiotic go away

Sounds a lot like me, I'm about four centimeters taller than you and was initially 85 kilos, but I dropped down to 56. I also blamed my family at first, but I realised that if I wanted to actually lose weight I was going to have to start cooking for myself rather than just complaining that my parents only cooked high-fat food.

@moonshoes I drink green tea with jasmine, I think it tastes a lot nicer

I think you should not eat junk foods at home. Try eating healthy alternative snacks like a bowl of mixed fruits instead of a bag of salty chips. I know it's hard but you should do it if you really want to lose weight. Control yourself not to eat unhealthy foods that can give you more weight. You should exercise daily too. A One hour exercise per day is good and do it regularly. Do some lifting and cardiovascular workouts.

I lost 12 kgs in 6 months and have not felt this good and versatile with my body in ages.

By versatile, you can see me doing sprints sometimes in public areas. I do it because I know I won't feel buggered and because I can actually sprint for once lol.

How did I lose it all?

Basically work and soccer and diet. So I would be doing sprints about 3-4 days a week, with varying amounts of time (for a game, 2 hours, for work, 8 hour shifts lol). Meanwhile I had a solid keto based diet. Veggies and Meat only basically. No carbs. Uni also did its job for me. Left me with no choice but to hold my appetite for the appropriate times.

Yes, I am trying to lose weight because my old clothes don’t fit to me at all. I gain lots of weight this past months because I'm on my vacation and I ate too many. I ate all of my favorite foods with my family and we spend some time to the restaurants and some cafe and I gain a lot. I'm back to my home now and I realized that I need to lose weight now.
