Hi Lovely People,
My name's Kristina, I'm a 24 year old Sydney sider with a weighty issue.
I've decided to join the board because I have been a voyeur for a while and thought that this was a great place to get some support and encouragement.
I'm currently 78kg, 5'4 (unfortunately can't do much about the height) and this is the biggest I have ever been and ever want to be. I need to stop this now before it gets further out of control.
My 25th B'day is coming up in April and I want to start the next quarter of a century smaller than this one. I've got exactly 3 months to drop atleast 15kg.
I'm not one for exact goals because I tend to sabotage anything I plan
but something needs to be done, that I know.
I'm sick of my weight dragging me down, literally. When I was thinner, I felt taller, good about myself and a lot more confident. Although I know that the outside is not the be all and end all, I'm sure some of you, if not most, will agree that feeling healthy definately helps you attain a higher level of being.
I'm the typical 'bored/emotional' eater. I have a 9-5 desk job which definately doesn't help my cause either....
I'm not sure how I plan on doing about my lifestyle change but I am going to start small....no soft drinks, cut down on carbs etc. It will be gradual but sustained. I want to start waking up at 5am and go for a walk on the treadmill that never gets used...I'll keep you posted on that ambitious plan.
Anyway, I'm excited to be a part of this lovely and friendly group and I hope that I can be just as important to your weightloss as you will be to mine. Please feel free to drop me a message if you wish to chat.
