19 yr old Newbie requires support!!!!

Postby sweet-tooth » Sun Jun 07, 2009 1:15 am

Hi Ladies, and gents.

I am a 19 year old newbie from Brisbane looking for people who are positive influences in the quest for weight loss and a healthy lifestyle!

I am a confident, intelligent, decent looking 19 year old university student. I love spending time with my friends and going out when i can. I enjoy performing on stage and love to sing, dance and act.

At least this is who i used to be........

I am also obese.....and as a result have lost confidence within myself. I have fell into a constant hole of over eating, under exercising and ignoring my body in general.

I have, however, taken the hardest step, and have decided to do something about it!!!!! Apart from joining a cheap, impersonal gym, i am requiring support from anyone willing to offer!!!!! Being a university student, my funds are limited, and I cannot afford to join any expensive online programs.

I have planned a trip to Bali with my mother (they had some very cheap flights) in August just after my 20th birthday. I would like to lose a substantial amount of weight before then!

I am not shy (hence the performance loving) and so have also included some recent photos of myself. And yes, i choose the ones that looked the best! :P

Current weight = 76 kilos
goal 1 weight = 70 kilos
goal 2 weight = 64
goal 3 weight = 59
goal 4 weight = 56
Total weight loss required = 20 kilos

Wish me luck!!!! And good luck your personal goal!!!! :D

Hi All,

Thank you so much for your warm welcomings! It is so nice to know that there are people out there who are willing to help and support others like myself.

I experienced my first challenge yesterday; Sunday afternoon drinks with friends. Although, i decided to 1. save on money and 2. avoid nominating myself as designated driver.

So i was quite happy with myself for eliminating any temptation.

P.S i love all the forums here. It seems like there's a forum for everything that i can relate to/experience.

Thanks again!
