Hi Everyone,

I only just stumbled across this forum and what an inspiration.
I need to loose weight - so desperately!! I recently got married and lost about 10 kilos in the lead up to the wedding, which was awesome but needless to say - I have stacked the weight back on.

I currently weigh 75 kilos and an only 152 cms tall. This puts me in the Obese category!!! :shock:

I'm looking forward to doing this and looking and feeling healthier!

Andie I am 153cm tall and weigh 77kg so we certainly have something in common. Sometimes I think being short is hard enough without having a weight problem as well. :lol:

Welcome to the forum. You are right it is full of inspiration, and there is always someone who can give fantastic information and support.

Judy :D

Hi Andie and welcome to the forum!
Look on the bright side, you have done it before so i'm sure you can do it again - and this time you can make your goal "the rest of my life" rather than "my wedding"!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
