Welcome Natalie,

It's always nice to have a new person join the forum but especially when they're from "the world's most liveable city"!!! :wink: (everyone else that's not from Melbourne is going to shoot me for that one!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, great to have you onboard, you'll find a great deal of support and encouragement here, and a few laughs to boot!!!

Look forward to learning more about you, and sharing this journey with you. :D

Cheers,
Josie

Not as well as I used to, sadly if you don't (as they say) use it you lose it!!! :cry:
I used to be very fluent in Italian, French and Spanish; these days I'm lucky to get my English right!!! :oops: :lol: :lol:

I have no idea, I'm sorry.
There may be; though if there is maybe your question will bring them out to the light (wouldn't that be great??!!) :D

hehe true about the light

I was wondering regarding the starting wait for my signature does it mean what my weight was is that what it means by starting weight?

I guess so. :D
Basically your starting weight is the weight you record at the time of starting your weight loss journey.
Some may vary a little, for instance, although my actual start weight was 126.6kg on 1/1/13 it wasn't until the end of April that I really got serious but by then I'd already lost 6kg. Nevertheless, I still leave it as 1/1/13 at the 126.6kg start weight. Does that make sense??!! Sorry sometimes, I don't explain things too clearly. :oops:

Don't worry, that's fine. I really hadn't noticed your start weight until you mentioned it.

I personally (like you) like to count calories, others prefer to count points (like Tinkerbella for instance) then there are those who don't do either! It really doesn't matter which you prefer; as long as you're happy and it works for you.

With regard to how I count calories, I use a phone app called MyFitnessPal which is fantastic because you can if you don't want to use it on your phone, you can do exactly the same online. I've included the link here: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/account/logout I find it very useful to track my calories, and my exercise using this simple app, but there are many others which are as good (if not better). I also used to use Calorie King, but after coming across MyFitnessPal, fell in love with that and dumped the king!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

And FYI....you're not hopeless; no one is hopeless!! Don't be too hard on yourself. Besides we're all here for you, we can get through this together!! :wink:
