Hi everyone

Postby Tina » Mon Oct 30, 2006 10:11 am

Hi there everyone,
my name is Tina, I'm 30 years old and I'm a junkaholic!
I live in Adelaide, South Australia right next to a pub, which serves me lots of alcohol and junk food. I have always loved junk food, and alcohol and pretty much anything that is bad for my body, hence the fact that I have pretty much always been overweight. So at the grand old age of 30 I have joined a gym and have started a 12 week weight loss challenge (through Fernwood Gyms - their Vitality Gaurantee challenge) and I'm doing okay, but I keep slipping. I slip a lot!
My friend Bel has joined and was telling me what a great forum this is so I thought I would give this a shot too and hopefully find the motivation to stay on track and try and keep it up for the next 35kg I have to lose.....

Hi everyone, thanks for the warm welcome. Yes Bel is the very best friend a person could have - in so many ways. She kicks my arse when it needs kicking, dobs me into my Personal Trainer, when she thinks I need dobbing in and is there for me when I just need to vent, and has a shoulder ready when I need to cry. Okay enough with all the soppiness - she just badgered me into coming here to see lol. But seriously I'm glad I joined.

Oh it's not so much the food at the pub that's tempting, it's all that lovely alcohol in all the pretty bottles that is so tempting. And all the people that are so (or seem so after lots of alcohol) nice and I spend so much time with that's the problem. But I'm getting there, having set myself lots of challenges at the gym this week so I'm going to be too stuffed to go to the pub!!!

Well that's the plan anyway......
