Hi All!

Hi everyone. I joined up way back when there were only a handful of members. Just checked the memberlist - 758! Wow! I stopped posting mostly because my poor old dinosaur PC couldn't keep up with all the new postings. Well it's still a dinosaur but at least we have broadband now so will see how we go. What a crazy year 2006 was. I have always been overweight but had never been much of a dieter. I now have a brand new understanding of the term 'yoyo dieting'. I think I tried just about everything this year. Jenny Craig, Weight Watcher's, CSIRO, Tony Ferguson, personal trainer, even good old fashioned calorie counting. Where did it get me? right back to square one! There's a shocker. So 2007 is a fresh start. I'm getting married in April - eloping to Vegas: woohoo! I'd love to get down a bit closer to the 100kg mark - optimistic I know, as I'm currently close to 135kg. I'd also like to reach my goal weight of 65kg before I turn 30, which is April next year and probably a bit more realistic. Here's hoping we can do it together.

Hello Serena and welcome back to the forum.

Gosh well I guess you would have seen some changes around here not to mention all the new faces. The reason we are all here certainly hansn't changed - to lose weight (or maintain) and support each other in the process. I think a lot of the forum members can relate to the yo yo dieting so you are not alone and hopefully we can give you the motivation you need.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding that is an exciting event to help with your goals.

I wish you every success on your weightloss journey. :D

Hi Serena,

And welcome to the forum. :D

I'm a newie, and although I joined some weeks ago, didn't really get serious until NY day. Yes I know another NY resolution to lose weight!!

I'm close to weight too, I started off at 135.5kg and so far (after just 3 days) I'm down 2 kg!!! But I know it's just the first week/fluid thing and it will slow down after that.

Getting married in Vegas huh?? Cool!!! We went to Vegas in 2005 and absolutely loved it, so much in fact, we are planning to go back again in October this year, but I want to shed a few kgs first otherwise trying to keep up with the Vegas pace will kill me!!!

Nothing like a wedding to keep you motivated (I know it did me when I got married). Stay determined and positive and I'm sure you'll get to your goal and make a beautiful runaway bride. :wink:
