I've been using MFP for over three months now and my weight loss is going well, but I feel hesitant to talk about it with my friends and family. So I'd like to add some like-minded people to my friend list for some mutual support and accountability.
I'm 37, female, no children (unless you count the two cats in our house) and I live in Belgium.
SW: 94.2 kg (207.7 lbs)
CW: 87.4 kg (192.7 lbs)
GW: 68 kg (150 lbs - normal BMI) and then I'll reassess.
My goal is feeling happy with my body again (confidence) and not having to limit my activities because of my weight.
I'm a bit of a geek and I love crunching data and tracking everything in Excel.
I believe in slow, steady and sustainable weight loss:
- no fad diets or overly restrictive low cal diets
- intentional slow rate of loss (0.25kg per week as a goal)
- eating everything I like to eat, just adapting the quantities (I have a fairly healthy diet already)
- I've been increasing my activity level: more steps in daily life, several treadmill sessions per week and I'm slowly (re)integrating strength training into my routine (I have a home gym)
If any of this resonates with you, feel free to add me as a friend
