Hi there :)

Hello Everyone,

After lurking for a few days, I thought I would take the plunge and join this great forum.

I started on my 'healthy me' lifestyle on Sunday. My aim is to improve my fitness and lose those seriously unwanted kilos. I've started at 126kgs, and I plan on getting down to 75kgs (I am 5'10"). This does seem like a lot to lose, but I know I can do it... and I WILL!

I have chosen the Optifast diet as a kickstart, for 12 weeks before moving on to Lite n Easy. I get very motivated, and when I put my mind to something... this is it... you can't stop me!

I am going overseas in October this year, and hope to have shed some of the poundage by then!

Thanks for reading and I am looking forward to getting to know you all :)

Hi Sarrah and welcome :)

Im on Optifast too ! It's terribly hard the first two weeks whilst your body adjusts but you'll be fine after that :D
