I've had a pretty serious weight problem since I was 16 - now I am 29, approaching 30, and sick of being held back by all this flab.
I've stopped myself from joining a band, going out, buying clothes, seeking a boyfriend - all because I am "too fat" to do these things.
Now I look back on my wasted youth, and am determined to make up for it - firstly, by getting rid of this fat once and for all.
Already, I am seeing success. 7kgs gone in just a few weeks of dieting and exercise. I'm now the thinnest I've been in 2 years.
I have a long way to go, but I will get there!
