Hey all

My name's Karma and I'm from Perth. I'm a full time child care worker at an 'Reggio Emilia' Early Learning Centre, still living at home with the parents but trying to move out with my fiance (don't get me started on rental prices in Perth, seriously). I've been overweight since I was about 10 due to some serious emotional eating. I'm not so bad with emotional eating now - I don't eat when I'm sad, but mainly when I'm bored.

Anyway, stats -
Age - 20 (21 in March)
Height - 167cm
Heaviest Weight - 82kg
Lightest Weight - 71kg
Current Weight - 73kg
Goal - 65kg or less

Looking forward to getting to know you all soon :)

Hi Karma and welcome !!

I hear you loud and clear about boredom eating ... I find it worse than emotional eating.

All the best for your journey, I look forward to sharing it with you :)

I should've mentioned that that weight loss was over about 4 years... I was about 82 when I was 15, got down to 70 when I was 16, hovered around 75 until 19, went back up to 81, then got down to 71, just put those two kilos back on over the Christmas period :( I should probably draw a graph or something, it's been a long road XD
