Welcome to the forum. You've done diets and well and truly know that doesn't work. Now is the time for real change - a lifestyle change! A healthy lifestyle change for a better future! Are you ready for it?
Remember it took you a lifetime of wrong habits to get yourself to where you are today so be patient as you learn new good habits. This forum is a great place to help you learn and grow. You will find support and encouragement here - so don't be shy...use this place!
Start were you can and build from there. This weight loss thing is more of a marathon then a sprint (and a good thing too - because we all start off so unfit that a sprint would finish us off!
). Listen to your body. Push it but never break it. As your fitness and healthiness improves you will surprise yourself what you end up being able to do!
The past is the past...onward to a better future!
ps What part of Perth?...I live in Mirrabooka.
