I live in New Zealand (Auckland) (look for Australia and we are the group of islands to the right), married for 18 years and have 3 beautiful little souls. I am currently fat. But not for much longer thanks to Tim!
I have had several moments over the 20 years. I have made some major blunders with my diet and my body. I have lost and gain so much weight. I have done Atkins to achieve pregnancies, IVF treatment has meant that any weight I had lost trying to get pregnant has come back again ten fold.
I feel like I have just come out of a big black tunnel. Two years of lack of sleep and parenting 3 children takes its toll when you are a stay at home Mum. You are time poor so going to the gym is not an option, and low carbing (Atkins) on your own is difficult at best (so my motivation was low). I had battled Postnatal depression and I was starting to be in the right space to do something for me - which I think DH saw and he sent me on a holiday for 6 days on my own.
DH found Tim's book - the 4 hour week months and months ago. He was kinda inspired by it. 4 weeks ago when I came back from my holiday and he suggested that we needed to the 4 hour body together. We each downloaded a couple of the book - and I decided actually I needed a paper copy so I could book mark and make notes. He wants to get stronger (read he has a geek physique) and I want to lose body fat and lots and lots of it. So in 3 weeks we have lost a couple of kgs each without the kettlebells. I am loving the slow carb approach and am not feeling deprived at all. When our kettlebells arrived late last week we were both excited but cautious. We wanted to get our technique right and there are all of rubbishy online kettlebell demonstrators out there. We found a guy that I like to call Dude that someone from Sparks recommended. We did our first session on Monday night and we are both sore in all the right places
. There are not many kettlebells demonstrators in NZ.
I am currently at 90 kgs (198 pounds) and I have no idea what percentage of body fat that is - 40 - 50%.
