Im 21 and started the new year like many with the resolution to lose weight. For the first time I actually came through and went from about 110kgs down to 93kgs. However I sort of platoed there for a while and thats when the weight started yo- yoing. I went back up to 100kgs then 99kgs then 100kgs and so on and so on. The last couple of weeks I've got serious again and am now 96kgs but feel that I'm going to need some help and encouragment to keep on track. I came across this site and thought a weight loss community was just what i needed. So heres to going forward and never looking back.

Hi Monie and welcome to the forum! Those blasted plateaus are a pain!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hey Monie

Welcome to the forum. I've had the same problem the last year, got up to 103 then down to 97 then to 99 then to 101 then to 99 back and forth. Hopefully this time our motivation lasts more than a couple of of weeks!

I only joined this forum a week ago and I've been reading through everyone's posts, I find them encouraging as it really helps to know that other people are managing to get their weight down. The before and after photos are really motivating too.

Good Luck

Cheers
Opal
