Hey there,

Im new to the forum so thought Id better do an intro.

Im Caz :)

Never had a weight problem before, but now im in my 40's and the weight has piled on since I gave up smoking 15 months ago. (13 kilos)
I was about 10 kilos overweight before that, so I have a bit to lose lol.

Okay, Im in Vic, have a sweet tooth, and very little motivation, so Im looking for a kick up the rear end to get started. :D

Goal to lose - 25 kilos
Starting on 30/10/2007
Goal date - 15/6/2008 :D

Ive never been on a diet before, but would like a decent weight loss in the first two weeks so I can stay focused. I was thinking about those Celebrity Slim shakes to start off with.

I have a treadmill and an exercise bike that rarely gets used (lack of motivation) but I do ride my pushbike to school and back on schooldays and take my dogs for a walk most days.

I dont eat very well, Im not one to cook meat and 3 veg, so I tend to snack and eat loads of carbs. :oops:

Any tips?

thanks for the warm welcomes.

Im always hungry lately, so I have to find things to snack on that arent fattening, looks like a trip to the market for some fruit. :)

good luck and yeah getting off and running certainly helps your motivation. I don't know anything about those shakes, I've just got rid of all the junk from my diet, eaten healthily and started an excercise routine. If you can make a dent early you get all the motivation you want and seriously if I can do it anyone can
