Well, I have been lurking around the forum now for a couple of weeks and thought that it was about time that I joined in. I have been really inspired by the stories of members and and have already found some great advice.
Okay, so a little bit about myself. I am 29, living in Adelaide and recently got married. I have struggled with my weight since my teenage years - I actually can't remeber a time when I was happy with my body. I'm somewhere around 75 kilos but can't be sure as I don't have scales and refuse to use the one's at my gym as people are always going past them...I am purchasing a set of digital scales this week so will post my exact weight then.
In the lead-up to my wedding I managed to lose around 6 kilos, however that is all back on now
I must admit that I have not been very healthy of late and my eating has been very bad. I absolutely adore food - especially savoury snacks like chips and I totally love cheese (Mersey Valley is my enemy!) In the last few weeks I have noticed that my work pants which were always quite comfortable are now tight!! It's a horrible feeling and I just generally feel uncomfortable. I also feel like people are staring at me and the thought of running arcoss anyone that I haven't seen for a few years is horrifying as I know that I look quite different to a few years ago..
I've got a short term goal set of 67 kilos which I'd like to reach by the end of May. My husband and I have just booked a trip to Fiji with a group of our friends. Ekkk, this means being seen in public in bathers
It's a problem not just because of my weight but I am also very untoned. I am a member of a gym but haven't been going much lately so will have to get back into it this week. The group that we are going to Fiji with are also all skinny-minis and super-fit! So hopefully this will give me extra motivation.
My long term going is 60 kilos - I don't think I've been that weight since I was 15.
Great to meet you all and I look forward to sharing in your weight-loss journey's!
