Hi girls,

I'm from Wollongong near Sydney, single-mum of two gorgeous baby men.

I've never been a thin person and have struggled over the years with different weight/health issues. I've decided that it all ends right now, here, today.

Here's why...

I happened to be at my parent's house the other day when my dad came home from doing errands. One of which was to pick up their pills from the chemist. He put down a half full shopping bag on the bench. For some reason I looked inside to see what else he brought at the chemist. You guessed it... nothing else... roughly half a normal shopping bag of blood pressure, diabetes and arthritis medications.

That won't be me.

My goal is for a bit of weightloss, 78 down to 60kg, but really I have my eye on one of those blue circle maintenance avatars that some of you have.

I would love to hear from anyone who wants to say hello but I would especially love to hear from other single mums.

The forum is brilliant and you seem like loving, energetic supportive people.

Wish me luck!
