I'm a newbie

Postby Nelly » Sun Jan 06, 2008 10:42 am

Hi everyone. I discovered today that the one pound (.45kg) i gained, pushed me from being 'normal' weight to 'overweight - so here I am, looking for others to help motivate me, and some kind of accountability because i've never been good at watching what i eat or exercizing. Hope you dont mind having an outsider, from US and will be converting my lbs to kg.

thanks.
Nelly

You're just as welcome as any Australian! Most of us here have become cluey with pounds aswell as kilograms. And those of us who count energy intake generally do so in calories, so you wont have a problem if it's more natural for you to use the imperial system.

:D Looking forward to sharing your journey, it shouldn't take too long considering you don't have a great deal to lose.
