WOOHOO!! I'm getting married!!!!! but I'm 133kg :(
AM wanting to lose enough weight to look good in the dress, as well as be able to have babies. I just want to be healthy again.
Too much emotional eating in the past has made me balloon out, and the PCOS aint helping either.

Oh yeh, I'm Nicky and I'm 25 and I'm from Toowoomba QLD, HI!! :D

Thanks Mandie and PBunny.

I'm really excited about this forum thingy. I used to be on the Tony Ferguson forum and diet but that was over a yr ago. I have a pretty bad injury to my knee atm and my specialist has recommended quick weight loss (of about 10kg) to take pressure off my knee so it can heal properly.
I was going to go back on the TF forum but they get a bit antzy if ur not doing TF and are on the forums there. I am currently on ReduceXS which is similar to TF, Betty Baxter, and Success; but this one is a practitioner only one designed for quick weight loss so I've been told.
My plan is once I've lost the 10kg, to go on a balanced diet to lose weight the right way. As I said before, I want to lose weight for my wedding, and to be able to have babies. So thats my plans and goals for the next 12 months.

welcome to the forum nicky

i am 22 years old and i also have pcos. i have been engaged for over 3 years and i have a nearly 2 year old daughter- so anything is possible with pcos and i dont use it as an excuse i just try to live with it and do the best i can. it can be a hinderance when you are trying to lose weight. but ive successfully lost 21 kg in the past so i know it can be done. sing out if you need anything-- most of us a pretty awesome here :)

btw ive been on the tf forum before as well and didnt click to it as much as this one- hence the amount of posts i have done here! LOL

Hi Nikki and welcome to the forum! I used to have terrible knee and ankle issues and I can tell you right now that it makes a HUGE difference when you lose the weight.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Yeh Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, I developed it at puberty and its been a real hinderance. It muks about with ur endocrine system (hormones and stuff) pretty bad, as well as making it hell every ttom.

Welcome Nicky! I got married in June so I'm still in love with all things wedding :) How are your plans going so far? If you want any good sites for ideas let me know :)

Good luck with your weight loss. Sounds like you are very motivated... use the wedding as motivation too. Was great motivation for me... shame I couldn't keep it after the wedding!

I look forward to hearing about your progress :)
