I am getting serious - finally!!

Postby miss.librarian » Mon Jun 23, 2008 1:02 am

Hi girls!!

Well let me introduce myself then. My name is Bec and I am 21.
I have always been a big girl..in weight and height! I currently stand at 6 ft tall and 116kg. Big girl!! Hehehe.

A few months ago I got down to around 105kg and I felt great and was very comfortable with myself.
Now due to a lifestyle change, I have put a lot back on. Probably around 5-8kg in the last 2 months alone. Hello stretch marks!!

However, I am sick of it and changing my ways as of tomorrow!!
I start a new job so I figured what better day to start my new life.

My goal weight would definately be around 95kgs. I still want some meat on my bones, and I have to confess I do love having a big butt!
I love to shake it and wiggle it when I walk!

I have been reading lots of posts on here..everyone seems so supportive!!
I am looking forward to talking to u all and having somewhere to document my ups and downs! :mrgreen:

So I guess the reasons for me wanting to lose weight are wanting to be healthy and comfortable within myself.
I hate constantly tugging at my clothes. Checking to see if my rolls are really noticeable. Not knowing if I will be able to squeeze into that plastic garden chair!

About 3 or so years ago, I weighed 128kg. My heaviest ever. But funnily enough, I was more confident and happy then. I never thought twice about going out..or whether people would say stuff to me.

Now I do. I worry about going out with my friends because of how big I am. I worry that some tool in the pub will say something about me. It shouldn't be like this..I am 21!!

So guys, tomorrow, its the beginning of something new..something big..and not me hahaha!

my first step will be to not smother my toast in margarine tomorrow! and to drink plenty more water.
and when i get home from work, I am going to get on the treadmill. Not setting a time..just walking as much as I can...

here goes!!
good luck to you all out there!!
