Hi everyone!

Postby Sparky » Fri Oct 27, 2006 6:57 pm

Hi, I am new here, and started a healthier alternative to life today!
I am 24 years old, and I have 2 children, both boys, aged 4 and 18 months. Before I fell pregnant with my first, I was 47kgs. (I am only 153cms tall)! I put on 30kgs, then went down to 60kgs after having him.
Now, 4 years later I am 66kgs. I am getting married in May next year and I want to lose some weight before then. Also, I am going to my home town for Christmas, so wouldnt mind having lost a few kilos by then.
If I wasnt so short with big boobs (LOL) I wouldnt be worried so much, but I kinda look a bit odd :lol:

Anyway, hope to get to know you all over time!

Bye for now...

Hi Sparky, welcome to the forum, there's nothing quite like a wedding to give incentive in losing weight. :D

Sparky ,sounds like you have lots to motivate you. with all the help and support you get on this forum you should have lots of success.

I know what its like to come from a small town , I'm looking forward to going out in my home town at the end of April, hoping to have lost a bit more by then and feel more comfortable as well 8)

good luck and congratulations on taking the first step :D
