First of all, my name is Andrea. I am 25 years old and living in Melbourne.A bit about me and my 'weight':
I have been overweight probably since the age of 10 or 11. My weight is something I have always been teased about, even as a 25 yr old I still hear the odd comment (mainly from ignorant teenage boys!) about my size and it just tears me up inside. It has always held me back in life and I have had enough of being the 'shy, fat girl' and want everyone to see the real me!
I have done every diet possible (jenny craig, weight watchers, sure slim etc. etc.!) but nothing has been able to keep the weight off. I did have a lot of success with jenny craig when i was about 18 and lost about 30kg which took me down to about 80kg which for my height is a pretty reasonable weight to be, but of course, I piled all of that weight back on (plus a lot more!) and as of April 2007 I weighed 135.4kg
I lost about 20 kg by doing weight watchers (for the 3rd time!) but I have been stuck on about 115kg for a year or so now and I have recently noticed some really bad habbits sneaking up on me so i have decided to try and kickstart my weight loss again before i start putting on weight....AGAIN!
I have just booked a trip to Europe for August next year so as it will be summer over there, i MUST be able to wear a bikini on all the beautiful beaches on the Greek Islands:)
I decided to come on here for a bit of extra support and motivation from others and I hope I can provide the same support to you all!
