At the moment i am higly motivated both with the eating and exercise, but this isn't always the case so would love some help in keeping my motivated and my A$$ into gear! :)
I also have type 2 diabetes and PCOS, and am hoping to get these under control also.

Hi Emily,

Congrats to you for joing the forum!! Welcome aboard. :) :D

Good luck to you in losing your last 20 kilos, I wish you lots of success.

I too have PCOS and hope to overcome it as well with my weight loss, but that's a long way to go yet.

Scrapbooking must be a lot of fun/ a great area to get into. You must enjoy that a lot then. That's so great. How long have you been doing that for?

Hopefully catch you around and in the forum. :) Everyone here is so beautiful and wonderfully supportive to help each of us get to our desired goals, so you can do it. :wink:

Cya :) :wink: :D

Hi Em,

You sound like my kinda gal! (I'm currently banned from buying a single piece of cardstock until such a time as I use/ sort/ sell at least a quarter of my stash... how unfair is that!) How old are your kids?

Congrats on your loss to date, and good luck reacing your goal. You CAN do it!

The folk around here are all pretty wonderful, so if you're looking for support, encouragemnt and advice, you've come to the right place.

Thanks everyone for your warm welcomes :)

Just to answer a few questions, i have 2 kids. 1, almost 6 yo boy and a 2yo girl.

I have been scrapbooking for about 4 years or more now! Totally addicted. Have way too many supplies and am running out of room for all of the albums lol

I'm looking forward to looking around the boards and meeting you all :)

See you soon..
