Hi from a Newbie!

Postby Cheeky Monkey » Sun May 13, 2007 1:04 pm

Hi All,

I currently weigh 77 kilos - which for my 5ft1" frame is morbidly obese!!

Today I have decided that I will make a consious effort to loose some weight. I was 58 kilos when I met my husband - so I have a long way to go yet.

My first goal is to loose 5 kilos!

Wish me luck!!

yes it is! Really nice, supportive and encouraging people here. I've never been on a forum like it before! Lots of good tips and advice too. If you have any questions, just sing out as people are also really helpful and we have doctors and nurses and personal trainers in the midst who share their knowledge, as well as those that have collected a lot of knowledge about weightloss, weight managment and a healthy lifestyle through their own personal journeys :D
