Hi there!

Hi there,

My name is Elizabeth and I'm 23 and 85kg. All my life i have struggled with my weight and i decided to join this forum to keep me motivated to become healthier and fitter. A few years ago my weight escalated to over 100kgs. At that point i made the deceision to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. It took me about a year to lose about 40kgs. I got down to 62kgs!!! It was the hardest but most rewarding thing i ever did, but the hardest thing was keeping it off. And as you can see i have found myself overwight and unfit yet again.

My goal is to reach 62kgs by May 2009. My wonderful boyfriend never knew me at that weight so i want to show him how sexy his girlfriend can be!! :lol:

I have joined the forum so that i can have the support of people going through the same challenges as me.

I'm so excited about this journey.
Liz

Hey Lizzy,
Thanks for your comment and support. I often feel that I am alone in this weight battle, so it is lovely to read about about other people who are fighting similar battles. And - even though logically I know that I am not the only person in the world to re-gain weight after working so hard to lose it, I am so angry at myself for letting myself go so far that I think I am too hard on myself. I will lose weight again - and this time I have the advantage of experience.
When you said "It was the hardest but most rewarding thing i ever did" - it really reminded me of how I felt when I lost my weight last time. I want to feel that way again!
I am excited about my journey as well - we both go in as experienced, battered old fighters this time - we are sure to succeed. :wink:
