Hello All,

I discovered this community today and felt compelled to join.

I am 26yrs old and currently weigh in at about 80kgs. I have been crash dieting since I was about fifteen and am sick and tired of my weight being such a huge part of my life.

I've always felt as though I was going through the struggle alone, but am hoping with the support of a larger community I can finally get down to decent weight and stay there.

Thanks for reading.

Welcome Bec,

Good luck in your journey - I hope it all works out for you. Ive been back and forth in this forum for about a year now, and its really motivating. If I need to ask a question about health, exercise, dieting etc, or I just need some motivation I can come here, and now so can you!

Good luck again!

Hi ya Bec,
You are so lucky to have found this website, as you will meet some pretty amazing gutsy women in this forum.
Check out some of the Before and After shots, and you will see the determination and motivation that some of the woman on this forum have experienced. It is fantastic.
I was 80 kilo last week. I lost three from just watching my diet.
Good luck Bec, you can do it girl!
