Lost 8 kg through understanding good fats/bad fats and moderation. Cholesterol and fatty liver were a wake up call.

Want to do more exercise but don't really know what goals I have. To lift a certain amount, look a certain way etc... doesn't really get me excited.

Was running for a bit, got up to a few k a run but never got the endorphins or buzz ppl talk about. Thinking I need to do something more intense? Has anyone gotten there in their 30s or 40s without being someone who trained through their youth?

They say no pain no gain, therefore I recommend eating 4 meat pies and your sure to get a gut ache. Push through the pain barrier and wash it all down with some schooners ๐Ÿคฃ

Made the decision to pretty much stop drinking and just eating healthier in general about 6-8 weeks ago. Lost 5.5kg, another 6 to go.
Start of last year, I started a new job. Also did Febfast and really cut down on the booze. Started doing 10000 steps each week day, and ended up walking 5km every night in under an hour. I lost 18kg by the end of the year. I've put back on 3-4kg, but haven't been good at the consistent exercise (covid, hip pain, etc) and I'm really disappointed in myself. I've still got another 28-30 to go, but that's much better than the almost 50 I started with.

Good on you girl, proud of you.
It's annoying that most yummy food is bad for your waist.
