Hi Everyone,
Well I thought it was about time I stopped lurking and joined in. My name is Karen Parkyn, I live in Adelaide. I am a administration Officer at the womens and childrens hospital, so I seem to make work a excuse for going off the rails, which I have done but it is about time I get back to it. I started dieting following weight watchers in Feb 2006 I have lost 30kg up to date but still have another 30 to go and I just can't seem to see the end, but I will give it another go I know I can't give up now. Seeing all your posts has really inspired me to get back on the wagon. I hope to be able to contribute to the list and I am sure I will get lots of encouragement and support from everyone, from what I have seen. Anyway will chat again soon and keep up the good work everyone.

Hi Karen and welcome to the forum! congratulations on your fantastic success in losing the first 30kg! what a way to prove to yourself that you can get that last 30kg off too!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hey Karen - good on you for signing up. It's funny to think of people 'out there' that aren't members who follow our progress, our ups and downs. Anyway, I wish you all the best for your continued weightloss journey. Congrats on the weightloss to date - you've done so well to lose those 30 kilos!
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

thank you once again. I am going back to my first weight watchers meeting tonite that I seem to have avoided for about 4 months, but you guys have also encouraged me to do that, so I will keep you posted. Hopefully I haven't put too much on by their scales.
