    Still finding my feet here :)

    I am from Pretoria, South Africa..

    Me and my husband must loose weight drastically. I saw how much support your members receive/give and thought it a good idea to join and also begin the process here (with other people also wanting to loose weight).

    I need to loose at least 30kg (I'm 1.57m and weigh 96kg) ... My GW is around 60kgs. My husband is 1.87m and weighs 136kgs (his GW is arround 95/100kgs). I struggled to keep the weight of after I had my children and tried everything and anything without success.

    Going to so our family Dr next week and I am so desperate that I will not leave his office without a prescription :) I am taking all my "research" with so that he can see I've done my "homework" .

    Hopefully I will be here next week to start the whole process with other members and also post my progress here.

    See you

    Hi, Christa!
    Welcome here and good luck in your Doctor's
    I think you will have much success since you both with your hubby want to lose weight, so you will support each other and can even make a competition for fun ;)
    Go go lady!

    Hi Christa. For the past 2 months, hubby has been on Duro with me (30mg). I want to lose 20kg, he wants to lose at least 10. I am half-way now, but have no idea as to his progress, but it doesn't look as good as mine. He still eats small portions of bread, potatoes and rice, and the occasional take away - all of which I avoid as far as possible.
    It's great that you are doing it together. It would have been really hard for me having to prepare 2 different meals every time. This is the first time in his life (at 41) that he actually diets to lose weight and because he now also struggles with his weight, he is starting to understand how tough it can be for us woman, when the men are packing in on the "lekker" stuff while we have to sit and watch.
    He used to do body building, and followed a diet for that reason when he was younger...
    One thing I can recommend, is that you don't buy things which tempt you. eg. I love ice cream. If I buy a tub for the kids, I just have to have a scoop when I give them some... It just makes it easier when those temptations are not in your fridge. Hope you guys do well!

    This is so right, Chelsea!
    I think everyone who is struggling with extra weight should remember that! Personally I don't understand why is it so hard NOT to buy these yummies in the first place? No yummy at home - no temptation to eat it. It's that simple.
