Hello all!

Postby wilmawalrus » Mon Jan 14, 2008 11:05 am


My name is Lisa, I've just turned 42 (birthday was yesterday, so I celebrated with cake before starting "the journey" today).

I weighed myself this morning (81 kg), and have started on the track to lose 20 kg. Started Lite n Easy today, and have already been for a walk around the park with my daughter this morning.

Last year was a hard one emotionally, so I know why I've put the weight on (and I'm not beating myself up about it), but I want to be healthy for my two beautiful children, and to be able to wear most of the clothes in my wardrobe (which currently don't fit).

Looking forward to being a part of this encouraging community.

Thanks everyone - what a warm welcome.

See you round the (skinny) traps! Good luck to all - I've been very inspired already. Lite & Easy is going well so far (so good!)
