Hi i'm new here, thought I would introduce myself!
I'm 20 years old from melbourne, have been overweight all my life. I've tried to lose weight in the past but never managed to lose more than a few kg. I'm at the stage now where we are wanting to have kids and the weight is effecting getting pregnant and my doctor also suspends I have high blood pressure, I go back for a confirmation test in 2 weeks time
My doctor also thinks I should get a lap band, but as there is a 2-3 year public waiting list for this, i'm determined to lose as much weight as i can inbetween now and then to avoid having to have it done!
I'm currently 128kg and 170cm tall, which makes me BIG. I haven't been bellow 100kg since I was about 13. I was at my heighest weight a few weeks ago at 135kg.
My biggest problem is motivation, until now I haven't had any health problems related to being overweight, and my partner doesn't mind me being on the bigger side, he prefers it to stick thin girls, so I don't get that much encouragement there. I know if I lost weight he'd still love me, but he loves me now so its not very motivating.
But now it has come down to doing it for my health as i am now developing the problems i didn't have a while ago. I'm determined this time!
Thanks for reading about me and hope I get to know a few of you soon
