Hi guys...Bettina Liano is evil

Hi guys!

I'm new to this forum, a bit nervous because I've never tried losing weight until now! So hopefully it all goes well.

Just to tell you a bit about myself -

I'm a 20 yr old Melbourne girl. I study commerce at Monash Uni. I've always wanted to lose some weight but my sudden motivation happened the other day when I went to Bettina Liano and the evil salesgirl ( :evil: ) gave me attitude about the jeans I was trying on.

I currently weigh 65kg and I’m about 165 cm, making me a size 10-12. My goal weight is about 55kg.

I'm giving myself around 6 months to lose the weight (I think that's achievable :?: )

Anyway, good luck to everyone on their weight loss journeys! :D

Welcome Sandz!!
Unfortunately there will be horrible people in the world no matter what you do, but at least you have taken something positive out of their comment and are making a healthy change in your life!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi and welcome!

Im aiming to lose the same amount as you and Im hoping I can do this by christmas, that is my goal and I think it is achievable, but definitely slow and steady is the best way to lose the weight and keep it off.

Im sure you can do this! Good luck!

Hello Sandz and welcome to the forum.

Your goal is definitely achieveable. Salesgirls with attitude bite that's for sure.

All the best on your weightloss journey. :D

You know what kiddo, I'd kill to be a size 10 -12 ( I'm currently a 14 -16 and only 155cm tall ). When you get to that size 8, which I just know you will, I'd take those size 10 jeans and wrap them around that salesgirls neck and then tell her to stick them where the sun don't shine. ( Even if you don't really its nice to think that you could)

You've got thousands of friends here and none of us will judge you for how you look or what you weigh. Good luck on your journey :D :D :D :D
