Sup?!  Welcome to my Blog!

 

I started this blog back in February 2010 for 2 reasons – 1.  I was insanely jealous of a friends witty blog and 2. To help motivate me and keep me on track with my goals.

My name’s Amanda.  I’m 27, married, work in media, have 2 nutcase dogs and… I’m overweight.  I’ve been struggling for some time now to lose weight and was recently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS for short).  To go along with this I also have mild isulin resistance which means that it is especially hard for me to lose weight and I have to be extra careful with the food choices I make.  I mainly stick to eating  Low GI and focus on portion control.  You can find out more about Low GI here.

So I have a goal to lose 15kg!  I’m going to do this by eating healthily and lots of exercise.  I’ll track my progress here and hope to inspire, motivate and also offer a laugh along the way!

Stay tuned.  I’ll be skinny soon.  You just watch!  ;-)
