Hello to everyone.

Have spent a little time reading posts in this forum and thought it was time to say Hi. :D I have already embarked on my change of lifestyle and this looks like the ideal place to share and care with others on the same journey.

My name is Kim and I am on my way to losing 30 kg. So far have lost 6.3kg. Have tried to lose weight twice before and each time got to 7kg stopped and put it on again. As you can see I am getting close to that psychological barrier and I am determined this time to step over and go beyond. Figured a little support can never go amiss. Look forward to chatting with you all. Good luck!

I am off to track down one of those spiffy tracker thingies.

Cheers,
Tegan

Thanks Tegan and I know what you mean. I have started talking about my weight more openly and the changes I am making and I am not so afraid/embarrassed. So when I read some of the threads on this forum I was wrapped that there are others going through and feeling similar things to me.

Thx
Kim

Hi Kim!
Ahh, can't beleive it, EXACTLY the same weight and goal as me!!! Though, I would be happy to get back to 65kgs. Haven't been there since my 2 girls were born though.. Haven't been 55 since I was 18!!
I don't start for another week, I am weighting for a weightloss parcel to arrive.
It will be tricky because I am still breastfeeding and hate exercise!
You can do ANYTHING you set your mind too.
How tall are you and what size?
Just think of all those sexy tops you can wear when you are a size 10!

You have a head start on me, but I'm sure I can catch up. It's been a couple of years since I have been under 80kgs, so that is my first goal!
