Hey there everyone a little bit about myself. My name is Michael and I currently reside in South Australia, I'm still in high school, not that far in, too be seriously worried about my education. I've been meaning to lose weight for a while, and I suppose I have had some success, my healthiest time of my life was when I was 82 kilos, which was a few months back. Since then I've gained a couple of kilos on. Meaning I'm nearly back where I started. It's been very difficult for me to go through high-school because of my weight and my cultural background (I'm Jordanian). My parents and family have always tried to support me in my weight loss goals, though it never happens. Seeing as my dad early yesterday said he'll try to support me in losing weight, but in the next 2 hours, when he finished grocery shopping he bought a pack of donuts and several pre-baked pizza bread. Extremely helpful.
My goal is to try to look the best I can before the Summer holidays, which are in 13 or so weeks. I have a whopping 20+kilos to lose. My goal by then is to have lost 10 kilos.
I've recently noticed that my body isn't the same as it used to be. I've now got gruesome stretch marks(which I previously had thought only pregnant women get) on my arms, upper thighs and side of my stomach. I really want to get rid of them. Which my parents are prepared to pay for, as a reward of losing weight. In any case. I'll be reporting back in Personal Progress once a week see how much weight I've lost. I will start recording my progress in 10 days.
It seems I'm pretty determined, however I seem to lose interest in everything right after 4 days and I need support to guide me through. That is why I came here, after a friend suggested it. I lose focus and when it seems I have failed I will go on a massive binge eating day which ultimately stops myself from doing any more exercise or dieting.
Well I hope now you know a little about me. I guess I'll get started. I just hopped on to the scaled and I weigh 86.7 kilos. Oh well more weight for me to lose.
