Hi everyone..

My name is Karen.. married, 2 kids..

I guess ive come here for the same reason as everyone..

I think what woke me up to the fact i gotta lose weight (besides the obvious) is.. at a check up with my dr she weighed me.. i was 120kg.. didnt suprise me.. i figured i was huge anyways.. 3 months later i was back again for my depo shot and she weight me again.. i was 150kg!!!! ya know i didnt even notice!!! my clothes still fit, maybe a tiny bit tighter, but nothing too major.. how could i put on 30kg in 3 months and not notice??? anyways.. it was such a wake up call.. it disgusted me.. so now im gonna pull my finger out and actually fix the problem instead of think about it..

ya all with me??? :D

lol I don't know what it is with larger sized much elasticity that you don't notice these things. I've found that in losing 20kg I've barely gone down 2 sizes yet you hear of people losing 10kg and dropping 3!!!

I'm with you all the way!!!
