Hello to everyone

Postby need2loseit » Thu Oct 09, 2008 5:21 pm

Um ok, so my name is bec and i am new to not only this forum, but to using forums all together so it will be interesting to see where this takes me.

I'm almost 28 and i am in desperate need to lose some weight (obviously :) ) After losing approx 15kg at the bgining of the year I currently weigh 130kg, so i have 60 or so kilos to lose to get down to my goal weight. I know deep down that it is achievable, i just cant seem to get anywhere so im hoping that by putting myself out there i can find the strength, support and help i need to get there.

So here goes........

Hi Bec,

Welcome to the forums... I'm new to the whole "forum-ing" thing too... I'm getting used to it though...

You've come to the right place if it's support and motivation you need - you'll soon find that the people around the forums are really great, and some have some amazingly inspirational stories...

Good luck with your journey - I have no doubt that you will succeed... :D

Hi Bec.

Ive just turned 37 - ouch! - and i too have about 60kgs or so to lose before i achieve what is typically a normal weight. I have battled this for many years because of fertility drugs to conceive a baby. (He's now almost nine!) I find that i make many excuses because i work full time, have a husband and child and i also study. Oh, also i do about 97.5% of the household chores!

So, I just wanted you to know that there are many people out there with lots to lose but more to gain!

Chat Soon,
