Hi I'm New

Postby Peta36 » Fri Aug 10, 2007 2:35 pm

Hello I am 36, married with a 7 year old girl. I have 2 step children 19 and 22 and I have just become a step grandma! I need to lose about 35 kilos and have struggled for years to keep weight off. I joined a ladies only gym last month and have been going 3 days a week. I have only lost a few kilos but hey it's a loss right! I feel so much better and am so glad I found this site. I hope to get to know you all.

:lol:

Thanks for the warm welcome it's great to be here. One question how do you get those tape measures at the bottom of the screen I think they are great to measure your progress? Thanks
