Hey there..

I'm jd, I'm twenty-two years old, approximately 160cm tall and I weigh about 120kg.
I've finally come to the realization that my obesity really has been the cause of nearly thirteen years of depression, health problems and severe lack of self worth. So I'm here because I want to make this change, and I don't think I can do it alone. My ultimate goal is quite severe, but for now I would be happy enough to see my weight below 100kg. Actually, that's an understatement - I would be thrilled to see my weight below 100kg!! But even that is 20kg away and so for now, my short term goal is to reach 110kg. Hopefully seeing even that small change will help to motivate me to lose more..


Peace, jd.

Hi MissJD and welcome to the forums :)

I'm sure that you'll find a lot of support here, everyone is so lovely and helpful! I wish that I could share some magic weightloss tips with you, but unfortunately there aren't any! All I can suggest is to just take each day as it comes, and try and be as healthy as you possibly can be. I wasn't too far off where you are now when I first started, I began my journey at 165cms and 115kgs.

I hope that in time you begin to feel more positive about yourself. I'm sure you're a lovely person regardless of what size you are :) I never really suffered with low self-esteem, but I definitely feel better in myself now that I've lost a bit of weight. I used to avoid going to particular places or doing certain things because I wasn't happy with or comfortable in my own body, so I can understand how you feel somewhat.

You might like to start a thread over in "Personal Progress". It seems to be one of the more active areas on the board, and everyone there is fantastic!

All the best :)
