Hi all :)

I'm just starting on the long road of pulling myself together and becoming a healthy kick ass chic lol. I've been reading some of the amazing stories on here and they are just so inspiring, I thought I just have to have these kind of people supporting me through this, they are so wonderful. I'm 28 (29 in a month eek) and I currently weight just over 74kilo, but I'm also very short, so this is hanging round me like a sack of potatos. I am also a sever asthmatic and since I put on the extra weight it has played havoc with my asthma which used to be easily controlled. I have also come to the realisation that I am no longer the spring chicken who can eat what ever she wants and not put on weight, Now as I get older, I'm going to have to work for it lol. My doctor has reccently started me on duromine (30mg) and a healthy eating plan and I have been to see a personal trainer who has laid out a plan for me (start with him next week). My doctor is amazing and I think I may have chewed her ear off with a billion questions, but I figured its my body and I need to be completely in control and that's what I'm paying her for anyways right lol. So I am feeling happy about the move onto the duromine, we had been working together for a few months on just changing diet alone and mild exercise, but with my asthma being as bad as it has been I am limited to more strength and toning and hardly any cardio for exercise. So she suggested the duromine for two months to see if we can drop a bit of the weight, improve my asthma and fitness and slowly build up the cardio until I can go full throttle lol

I have had duromine in the past about seven years ago for two months for the same reason and found it helped fantastically. I was then able to work out and maintained my weight for three years before I had my first child. Then everything went out the window lol. Due to 'all day sickness' for the entire pregnancy the only thing I could do to stop myself from being sick was eat, and although I ate reasonably healthy - My portion size and the sheer amount I was eating on my tiny frame caught up with me again. And so my son is now two and after trying everything and losing and gaining and losing and gaining I have made a concious choice that this will be it.

So thats why I'm joining this forum. I think my past downfall has been trying to go it alone, and after reading some of the stories on here I couldn't believe that I had become more motivated in an hour than I had been in months. So I can't wait to get to know you all :)
