Well how did I get this BIG!

I don't really need an answer - I already know. Every morning lately I need to search my wardrobe for something that won't cut me in half.

It's time to get motivated....I am 6ft 1in tall & if being a giant isn't hard enough for a woman, I also weigh 131 kgs.

My teenage son informed me a week ago that a kid at school has a nickname for ME, "Hagrid" :? , can't say I blame them - the resemblance is definitely there, but, being a woman it wasn't exactly a son told the boy off. You know I had fatty names all through school myself, but to get one now from my childs school isn't very flattering - what's up with kids these days???

Anyway, I need to lose 51kgs...I've tried numerous times & been pretty close but always ended up bigger than ever. I am 39 years pld & promised myself I would be slim in my 30s, that isn't gonna happen - so I NEED TO BE SLIM FOR MY 40s.

Anyway, that's a little about me. I hope to hear from a few of you & will help out whereever I can.
You'd have thought with all the practise I've had dieting, I would have gotten it rImageight.

Teasing and bullying will always be around unfortunately, but you will get plenty of support and motivation from everyone here.

You can do this and look AMAZING in your 40's!

Welcome! The names are awful, and no matter how much older I get I dont know if I will ever forget that stuff at school. And it is hard as an adult too!

As a side note, I love your ticker!
