Hi Jestexx,
welcome to the forum, and congratulations on your decision to become a healthier you! Just remember that at 16, your body is probably still growing and may still be changing, so be sure not to severely restrict your food intake or do anything to extremes. Not only will it starve your body of essential growth nutrients, it can also backfire and make you put on weight :shock:

I look forward to sharing your weightloss journey!
Cheers,
Tegan

Hey Jest,

I'm Katie, I just joined aswell.

I love horseriding too! I used to own my own horse but she went missing a few years ago.

I get really self concious going to the beach as well but when I do (which is pretty much every weekend in summer) I also make sure I'm with my friends - who all happen to weigh less than 65kgs and have bodies of baywatch babes- but they don't judge me and they make me laugh and they ensure a great day - without them I couldn't do it.

Congrats on joining up here and deciding to become a happier and healthier you!

Hi Jest,

You have to re-make the ticker every time you need to adjust your weight. I have the Ticker site bookmarked so it remembers my previous settings, that way when I need to adjust my weight, it's quicker and easier than going through the whole process again.
