Hi guys and girls

Hi everybody!

So introductions introductions.... well my name is Lance and I am 24 years old. I have always been overweight and have never been concerned by it. Generally because of my height (just a touch under 2 meters) I have carried my weight fairly well and so always laughed off people telling me I should try a salad every now and then instead of all the deep fried food and pizzas I eat.

That was until 4 days ago. I had occassion to have to look through the security footage at my work and caught sight of myself on the camera. It was one hell of a shock to the system. I have never been the sort of person who weighed themselves regularly and I rarely catch sight of myself on camera so this was, I guess, my wake up call.

I stepped on the scales today for the first time in about 5 years... 138.5 kilos. I was dumbfounded. Where the hell had that come from?!?! :shock:

Anyway, for the first time in my life I am actually concerned about my weight and ready to do something about it but, as with all things I do for the first time, I want to get support from people who have been there before, so here I am.

I hope to get to know you all really well over the next few months and, hopefully, I can help support you all as much as you help to support me.
