Hi guys

Postby jeshka » Thu Jun 14, 2007 1:02 pm

Hey there, I'm Jess, 21 years old (well almost), from NSW.

I'm a mere 160cm short, and weighing up around the 70kg mark. Packed on about 15 kg since finishing high school, and know that I need to get back down around 55kg to start feeling good and looking better. First goal is 65kg, then 60kg, then eventually 55. I tend to yo-yo between the 65 and 70 mark so to overcome that will come first before anything else.

It's very refreshing to find this forum, every other online 'fitness' group/forum I've looked at is filled with teenage girls whose idea of staying in shape is drinking nothing but water and tea, eating a tin of green beans for lunch, and then throwing it all up later. They are all about 50kg and 170cm tall, and trying to lose another 10kg - it's scary to read some of the things they write, knowing that they're serious.

Hopefully we can all share our stories and info and keep each other motivated, it's nice to meet other people with the same goals and stuff.

Nice to meet you all!

I'm up at Long Jetty, love the place. Only been in the state for a little over 6 months, I lived in QLD for 17 years, was actually born in Gosford but shifted up there with the family when I was a little one.

It's so cold here though!! I'm not used to it and it doesn't help with the exercise side of things, haha!

Thanks for the kind welcome :)
