Hi everyone,

I have been 'lurking' on the forum for the last month and finally decided to join. I have been on the weight loss journey for 5 months and have managed to lose almost 20kgs. I am just doing it by a lot of healthy eating and exercising every day (Im one who loves to exercise!!).

The main reason i started this was seeing myself on a music dvd and couldn't believe i had got to that size. (will reveal who's dvd it was later), I watched it the other night and could barely recognise myself.

I'm starting to love going clothes shopping - something that i have dreaded in the last, well, ever! It's nice to go into shops and not have the assistants look you up and down.

I'm hoping to get down to 60kg's - That's my ultimate goal and to be able to buy and wear a bikini with pride.

Well, that's a bit about me, hope to get to know you all.
