Hi from the Gold Coast

Postby needmoretime » Tue Sep 02, 2008 4:54 pm

Hey Everyone,

Im 23 years old and starting my weight loss journey this week. I live on the gold coast with my finace and our beautiful 17 month old son.

My weight problem started when i found out i was pregnant. I was 21 and had all these things planned for the year which included a overseas trip but being pregnant was not one of them. I was happy though as my partner and i had been together for 4 years and i was glad we were moving our relationship forward but scared and didnt want to give my life up. So i got depressed and began to comfort eat and then my son came along and i didnt know what i was thinking he is the best thing that has ever happened to me and now being a Stay at home mum. I eat because im bored. It doesnt help either that my finace can eat anything and wont put on weight.

But not anymore. Im getting married in August next year and i will not let myself be this big for the wedding. When i first met my finace 7 years ago i was a size 6 and now im a size 14 so my goal for the wedding is to be a size 8 - 10.

Well that is my story in a nutshell and i wish you all luck in your weight loss journeys.
