Hi, am new here. I have joined hoping for some inspiration and support on my weight loss journey. I am 5ft 7, 108kgs. I have been battling with my weight since my teenage years. I have PCOS and also fluctuating throid problems. I can be going fine then all of a sudden put on 3-5kgs in one week. I also have high blood pressure, I am sick of being 30 and having to take blood pressure meds. The cause of the high blood pressure isn't unhealhty living, it is medical but my doc says it is possible I may be able to get of the meds if I reached a healthy weight. We'll see, am hoping to reach that healthy weigt range over the next couple of years.
I guess the reason for joining this forum, I want to make 2009 my year, I want to lose some weight, any weight would be good. I want to build my confidence, feel good about myself and achieve something worth being proud of. For my height I think I am supposed to get in the 60's range, but would be more than happy with the 70's!
I am looking forward to getting to know you all.
