Welcome to The Bloggiest Loser ~ A Weight-Loss Journey With Friends.

Weight Loss Banner

On Monday I declared my intentions about getting back on the ‘Weight-Loss Wagon’ and finding a much healthier and confident Jac.

The support I received was overwhelming, from both readers and other bloggers alike.

Many wanted to join me on my journey so I got to thinking….

Thinking Jac

What better way to inspire and motivate others is there than a team effort???

That’s right, none.

By supporting each other through our Weight-loss ups & downs, we’re all more likely to succeed and reach our own personal goals.

Whether you have 2kgs or 102kgs to lose, you are more than welcome to join in on this blog hop.

Please don’t feel pressured to publicize your weight in numbers, that is completely up to you but this week I’d love it if you could introduce yourself, tell us why you want to shed the weight and set yourself a mini goal.

The blog hop will go live every Thursday and you will have the whole week to link up.

I can’t wait to see which bloggers join up!

How can you be involved if you’re not a blogger???

* Follow our journey’s through the blog hop each week.

* Show your support by commenting on our blog posts and let us know how you’re doing too in the comments.

* ‘LIKE’ our Facebook pages and keep up to date with our progress there too!

* Don’t be shy – share us and help grow our conversation!

So, a little about myself…

I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. Since having children, I have (at my biggest) gained an extra 45kgs.

Weight-loss for me has always been a rollercoaster ride. This time I want to lose the weight sensibly, and keep it off.

Before my most recent pregnancy, I lost 14kgs.

I’m ready to top that number this time.

I cannot afford trainers, food programs or gym memberships so I am going to focus on healthy eating and exercise to lose the weight. Once it plateaus, I’ll look into other options.

I’m only human, I can’t guarantee weight-loss each and every week but I can promise you all that I’ll give it 100% effort!

My mini goal is to shed 5kgs in the first month. The first few weeks is when I usually lose a chunk of weight then it slows down after that.

I will add my post from Monday to start this blog hop off!!!

  12. So glad I found you via Tina Gray. I’ve only in my first week on Weight Watchers, I’m sure I’ll need support in the future and I look forward to being able to lend support to the other gorgeous ladies xx

  13. Hi Jacqui

    Found your blog through http://tinagray.me/the-more-the-merrier/.

    I too am trying to get back on the weight loss band wagon. I lost 20kg have getting a lap-band in 2010. I blogged about it for ages and then recently switched my blog niche to be more general, rather than lap-band oriented (http://www.babblingbandit.me/).

    Since I got my lap-band loosened in February, I think it was, I gained about 6kg. I’m trying to lose that and more to try to get to my original ideal weight of 70kg. My current goal is to get to 80kg before the ProBlogger conference in Melbourne in mid October. I’ve currently got about 4.7kg to go.

    I will try to link up to your blog on Thursdays. I’m a bit of an erratic blogger though so can’t promise!

    Good luck with your mission to lose and great idea on making it a team effort!
