hey all!!!

my name is belzie and im a 17 year-old sydney-girl!! :D ! i currently weigh 59kg and would like to become 49-50kg by my formal this year and then maintain that. :wink:

i have gone on numerious diets, but when i loose some weight i usually put it, and more, back on. :oops:

for example i went through this one month were i gave up all types of coffie and lollies and icecream (yummmmm.... *drool*)!!! my weight came down from 55kg to 50kg...but the next month...i was back up to 58kg...

i go through excercise phases where i consistently excercise for a span of time...but then stop...

like when i went through a running phase were i went for a 25min jog every single day....but once my exams started....it all went down the drain!!! i started to make excuses...to was too cold...raining or even too hot!!!

i sometimes think i will never be skinny and get very depressed because most of my friends are thin...or dont care!!! i do! when they pig out infront of me...my cravings take over and i join them!! i wanna loose weight so i can feel good about myself but i dont seem to be able to!!!!

i have an outragious personility and dont like to winge...but i thought u guys should know that much atleast!!!

i am in no ways superficial...ok...so maybe i am a little...but i just wanna look at the mirror and like what i see!!!

so yeah...i figured i need help...not from by parents (who are overtly supportive) or any other people...but from those who go through similar things like me!!!

i need support and motivation from u guys!!!

help me please

love

me

p.s. im starting to have the wierdest cravings...like rasin tost with butter...and wait for it....plain yogurt (a thick layer) *drool*!! :P !

Hi Belzie,
welcome to the forum!. Some of us have a saying on here that it should be a lifestyle change rather than a 'diet' since once you finish a 'diet' you inevitably go back to what you did before hand.

17 is a difficult age anyway in terms of liking what you see in the mirror. For me it was weird, but once I started to gaina bit of confidence I was finally able to make the changes necessary to lose weight.

Stick with it though and you'll get there!
Cheers,
Tegan

Welcome Belzie,

Nah, you're never to young to not like what you see in the mirror, for me I think from about Grade 6, I didn't like what I was, all the other girls where smaller than me, I was in no way a fat kid but no skin and bone either.

Like Tegan, I follow the saying
it should be a lifestyle change rather than a 'diet' since once you finish a 'diet' you inevitably go back to what you did before hand


I've stopped counting the times I've started something, lost the weight I wanted to and then gone back to my old habits.

Re: your friends, do you think that if they knew you were trying to lose kilos that they'd support you by not eating crap in front of you?

Anyways, welcome and good luck with your weightloss,
Angel

Hi Belzie and welcome to the forum.

This is certainly a great place for support and encouragement. We are all on the same journey just getting there via different roads so there is plenty of experience and info about.

Good luck. :D

my partner is definitely the most supportive person around. He really encourages me to exercise and is really good about monitoring what I'm eating, but not in a bad way (if that makes sense). My friends and work colleagues are pretty good in the sense that when I request a healthier option, they will cater for me, but I don't blame them for indulging in their fav foods, I just have to rely on myself to resist!!!
