Good on you for making a start.I think you have done well to identify reasons why you want to loose the weight and I think you can do it.
Just ask yourself this question.How is being overweight working for you?
In 12 months time you are not going to weigh the same as you do now.It will be either more or less but not the same.Which path do you choose.
Its amazing what 12 months can do.!2 months can change your life and you can do this too.I lost 35 kilos last year and I intend on reaching goal this year.
Good luck with it all vicki.I look forward to reading more of your posts.
