Hi All

Just signed up and pretty excited about it all. Im currently on the big side of a size 14 and weigh around 90kilos. My lowest weight when i was a teenager was 65, and I have no idea how i've let myself get to this point.

Im getting married in March, and up until recently didn't care too much about losing weight for the wedding - until we started looking at photographers...

Anyway, feel free to PM me or IM me on yahoo (hollabackgurl618)

Cheers

i guess i do carry it well, which i think is the main reason the weight has stacked on. i dont look dramatically different to how i used to, just bigger overall. id say i carry my weight in my upper arms, gut and hips / thighs. this is all fairly easy to hide in suits for work and jeans / tshirts on the weekends.

its only been the last few months that ive looked at myself in clothes or looked at photos and realised how close i am to losing control of myself and just how much of a problem this all has the potential to be...
