Just joined the forums today, and look forward to getting to know everyone!
Bit about me - I'm from Canberra and I'm 23, 161cm (5'3") and currently 91kg. I have been overweight ever since I joined the public service five years ago - sitting on your bum for 8 hours a day can't be good for anyone! Anyway, I have been a steady 90 or so kgs ever since but over the Christmas holidays I finally went over into 91kgs... and thought, screw this I've had enough of being so overweight for my height lol
I have a really high self esteem and a lot of confidence so I think I'm doing this to live my life in more balance. I'm an aspiring pastry chef and I don't think I should pursue a career in that field whilst carrying so much extra weight around - seems a bit like a stereotype too... the chubby pastry chef...lol I've been known to eat a cupcake or two for breakfast, so for me this is learning how to balance my food/goals/life properly and hopefully when I eventually go to culinary school I'll be fit and healthy (it'll be like starting from scratch).
So, as soon as next payday comes around I'll be starting Lite n Easy and attempting to use my treadmill and maybe even go outside for a walk in the fresh air once in a while. I absolutely detest exercise but I'm exploring more fun looking things to get into... maybe something like Zumba!
Anyway, I'd love to chat to anyone else doing Lite n Easy, I've heard some pretty good things about it!
