Hello from Melbourne

Postby jackinabox » Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:32 pm

Hi everyone

I want to take the first steps to become healthy.

I'm 21 year old woman and weigh 140kg (yep, that's a huge censored)

I've been heavy my entire life, but it was always no more than a size 16 which I was happy with. When I was 15 I dropped out of school and that is when all the weight came on. I suffered from intense depression as many people do. It kept me inside the house most of the time and I lost all of my friends, self esteem and motivation to live.

It has taken me a number of years to admit I need help. I still suffer from depression, but not as bad. I leave my house and I try to socialise as much as possible.

I haven't started a diet yet or figured out an exercise routine. This is where I need the help!

Anyway, thanks for reading.

Welcome :D
I also have a long way to go before I reach a reasonable weight I don't even consider it a goal, I just want to start being involved in life and having a healthy lifestyle.
Together with the rest of the kind people on the forum I think you will find something that inspires and motivates you.
My favorite ideas to try and get kickstarted is excercise just a little, a nice walk, cuppa soup for snax or a quick lunch, I also try to read some parts of Dr Phil. weightloss book it helps to get my brain in the right place, taking it one step at a time and not saying to hell with it when I am not as good as I should be.
When you decide how you are going to go about weightloss I would love to hear about it.
All the best XXX
