Hi Ya

Postby Moomoo » Wed Jan 02, 2008 5:35 pm

Just wanted to say hi to everyone. 1st post on the website!
I'm from the UK but moved to Perth nearly 2 years ago now. Moving straight out of home across the world all in the cause of true love!
I'm now getting married in September this year so all worked out well in the end - Hopefully the same will be said in my weight loss journey too!

I have been "big" since being at school but now when I look at those photos I wish I was that size again! I managed to lose weight in 2005/6 (about 12.5kg) for an operation (having an actual goal really helped me) but after the op I just sat around and ate because I was bored at home and then over compensated on the nights out Eating & Socialising with friends when I got better!

I really want to lose weight and keep it off this time and I'm hoping that the forum will help give me some support and ideas and a telling off if needed!

Good luck to all those just starting out - Like me
Congratulations to everyone who has decided to take action on their weight!

Thanks all!

Just been reading the forum, I'm feeling more motivated now! Especially seeing the before and after pictures that are posted, thats helped.
I got my fiance to take a 3 pictures of me in undies at the beginning of the week (front back side) NOT pretty! whenever I want to eat rubbish I think/look at the pictures it really puts me off! maybe I'll get brave enough to put them up - once I've lost lots of weight!
