I would just like to introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I am 33 years of age. Presently, I weigh 68kgs....... 6 short months ago I weighed 58 kgs. I would like to get back to 58kgs. My highest weight was 95 kgs. It took me two years to go from 95kgs to 58kgs....... it was hard!

I used calorie counting and exercise (cardio and strength)

I stacked on this 'new' weight cause I was silly. I was involved with a guy that kept telling me to put on weight. I did it even though I did not want to. Now I am miserable at this weight. I should have listened to myself instead of the guy..... I take full responsibilty for the weight gain. Oh, yes the guy is no longer my partner nor friend.

I look forward to getting to know you all throughout my weight loss journey and maintence plan.

Hi Michelle and welcome to the forum! Pressure from family and loved ones can sometimes cause damage in all kinds of ways. Good on you for recognising that it was unhelpful for you and hopefully you won't be stung again!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hello Michelle and welcome to the group.

Well done on your initial weightloss, going from 95 to 58 kgs is a fantastic effort! Funny to have the opposite reaction as in your ex-partner wanting you to put on weight not lose it. It comes back again to feeling good about yourself I think.

All the best with the weight you want to now lose and sing out if you need any help.
