Hi!
My name is Elyn, and I just joined for some support while my partner and I try to lose some weight!
I'm 98kg as I found out yesterday, nasty shock let me tell you!!
My partner has been saying he wants to lose weight for ages now so I thought 'right, exams are over, time to get serious!'
I'm a fourm addict, so the first thing I did was google for a forum :D
We plan to use healthy eating, based on the weight watchers ideals, but not quite counting points. My goal is to also do half an hour of exercise a day, be it walking, the gym, swimming, whatever.
Todays goal is to clean out the fridge and pantry and go to the markets for some lovely fresh food!
Looks like a nice community here so i look forward to sharing this weight loss journey with you all!

Hello Elyn and welcome to the forum.

It sounds like you have a good plan there and it is great for you and your partner to be doing this together as you can motivate each other as well.

Have a good look around and join in wherever you are comfy.

I wish you both every success on your weight loss journey. :D

Thankyou for the warm welcome!

Ally - I found the Christmas Challenge and put my name down, it looks like just what I need to get motivated! Its so much easier when you have other people to motivate and support you, isnt it?

i just got back from the gym, I havent been in 4 months!! what a waster of fees, huh? But I feel good, if disgusted at how unfit I have become. Its all motivation though!
