Hello! I'm new ^^

Postby Mikura » Tue Mar 04, 2008 11:49 pm

Hello, my name is Katherine.
Im glad to have found this site.
Im looking for support in my weight loss.
And i think that theres a great bunch of people here.
Im hoping that i can acheive my goals!

Ive been overweight all my life, im 18 now and wanting it to change. Most people have always said, "your tall, and your allowed to be bigger"
Its just not okay with me anymore and ive been trying for a long time to improve it.
I was once 115 kilos and at just 15 years of age.
I managed to lose a lot of that weight and i am not currently 96 kilos.
^^
It's a start, but now that i have battled the obesity part i need to battle my overweight part.
I know i look alright but i want to look great. Especially since i have a stick of a boyfriend and sometimes it sucks to not be that small.
At 6ft im hoping 75 is a good looking weight for me.
My short term goal over the next three months is 82 which is my safe BMI weight.
Then down to 75 where i think ill be very happy!

So, i think i can acheive this and i have a good feeling that support here will help a great deal!
So hello all!
I hope to get to know a lot of you ^^.

Hi Katherine and welcome to the forum!

Well done on your weight loss so far - you've done really well and should be very proud!

There are a few of us here with boyfriends who seem to be able to eat what they like without gaining any weight (i'm one of them!) so we can sympathise!!

Best of luck! Looking forward to following your progress :P
SW - 75.9

GW - 65 (for now - and until I conceive!)

Yes, i know, its hard to stand by and order subway with no meat and cheese when my boyfriend can eat KFC or Hungry Jacks whever he likes and still looks great!
Not that i think i ever want to eat any fast food again!
Which is a great acheivement.

And thankyou for the welcome.
Im looking forward to reaching my goals.

I know what you mean. My husband is 68kgs, I throw him around the room, I want him to throw me around :lol: ..
Good luck with your weight loss. 75 sounds like an ideal weight for your height. You are going to look fantastic...

welcome aboard!

i have a similar problem with my bf - he can eat whatever and not gain weight! the important thing is health though - and guys who live off kfc are NOT healthy, even if they appear to be skinny on the outside! i explained this to my bf and now he's into eating healthier too - we are doing this together, which is SO much better than trying to avoid bad foods that are in the house for him! when we go shopping he looks at calorie/fat/sugar content of foods now and only buys healthy snacks - it's awesome :)

Hi Mikura,
i'm new here too.
I don't have that problem, my partner is also overweight, to the tune of 110 kilos. He was 117 but lost 17 just before last Christmas using a dieting tablet that his doctor perscribed him. He went off the tablets for three months and has put ten kilo's back. So now he's back on the tablets. The problem is he's not actually trying to adjust his lifestyle, the tablets just supress his appetite. In his defense he feels nagging hunger ALL the time and constantly battles it, even after only an hour after eating a full meal.

Anyway I'm competing with him in a friendly way... tablets verses healthy life style. Either way I'm going to try and get his food choices back under control so we can both enjoy life off the weight roller coaster.

Id have to say,
I think i need to get my boyfriend to be healthy too!
He's 19 and he may be skinny now.
But hes been walking with me which is so great of him.
Hes supportive of me, now i just need him to help himself so he doesnt have problems later in life.

And thanks for all the welcomes!
^^
Great to meet everyone.
