Another New One

Postby Pussycat » Thu Mar 13, 2008 2:42 pm

Hi I'm new here, and thought that I would introduce myself.
I have been "lurking" around the message boards for some time and finally today have decided to "bite the bullet" so to speak.
I am a 42 year old (43 in 15 days) single Mum of 3 wonderful boys. I work part time, study full time, and don't get near enough sleep.
I have struggled with my weight for all of my adult life, and never really got to goal - always seemed to come up that 10 or 15 kg short. I have decided to "jump on the bandwagon" yet again, after a 5kg gain after giving up smoking in the new year. Now I know that some people would say "Only 5 kg!" but add that to the other 20 that I already had to lose, it sure adds up.
Hope to get to know you all real soon.

Hi pussycat Im new here also, I know how it feels with the whole giving up smoking and putting on weight. I actually put on 15kg when I gave up and I didn't change my eating to compensate for the loss of smoking. Anyway I was stupid enough to take it back up... but I figure now my mind is completely set on getting to my goal weight, the smokes are going again too. D-day Monday and if everyone here doesn't mind I think I'll post my quitting stats along with my weight stats... hopefully it will help. :D

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

Good luck with the quitting Rose, I know you can do it - Keep busy and concentrating on something else really helps.
