Hello all from Karratha WA

Postby lollilova » Sun Dec 17, 2006 3:16 pm

Hi there!

Just want to introduce myself...
My name is Bianca and I love lollies! :oops:
I have been looking at this site for a few days and am so impressed at the support network you have that I want to join in too! Everyone is doing a great job at their weight loss and I only hope that I can take a few tips and do good myself!

I have two young boys (Devon will be 2 in March and Cameron is 2 months old) and am trying to plan for my wedding in June (hence the motivation to lose a little weight and look and feel good on the day!)

Well thats pretty much it, I don't want to babble too much.

Look forward to chatting regularly. :P

Hi Bianca and welcome!
I'm also enaged and already panicking 1 year and 3 months out!! Still gotta find a venue we like and a dressmaker, both of whom won't cost a small fortune.

I hope to see you on the forum and good luck with your goals!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Thanks everyone.

You guys are just so friendly! It is nice to see that there really are nice people in the world still!

I'm not following anything inparticular, was looking into the TF program but because I am breasfeeding it's not recommended. So for now I am just trying to eat less and incorporate exercise into my daily life.

We have been planning this wedding for a few years now. The firs time we had a date and venue booked and then I found I was pregnant, so I changed the plans quickly! After Devon was born we set another date and my hubby2b got a job interstate so we moved from SA to WA and had to put everything on hold again. Just when we started thinking about another date I fell pregnant (or got knocked up is what I like to tell people!). Now Tony's parents are coming over from England in June so we thought its now or never... And NO I am not planning on having another baby!

I have been looking around the site and it really is a wonderful place for anyone wanting to lose weight. Love the recipe section, can never find quick, easy food to feed the whole family.

Anyway, I will shut up now!
Nice to meet you all!
