Hello and welcome to my weight loss journey.
My name is Melissa, i am 23 and I live in North Queensland. I will not bore you of the details as to why I am so overweight, the cold hard truth is because I eat too much and I don't exercise. When I graduated from year 12 in 2007, I walked out of those gates weighting 117.0kg. I knew that I had to do something about my weight, I was miserable, I was anti social and I felt 'blah' about my body. I set out on a journey and lost 32kgs! I kept the weight off for about 12 months, then I met a man (my ex boyfriend). Him and I were together for 2.5 years, during this time I had put on nearly all the weight I had lost.
He broke up with me 3 months ago, it gave me a very rude awakening. I looked in the mirror one day and could not recognise who the chubby girl looking back at me was. I was mortified. I want to be healthy, I want to be fit and I want to feel good in my own skin.
I will cut down on my portion sizes, make better good choices and I will get my butt moving :D
Start weight: 113.0 kg
Goal weight: 75.0 kg
This journey is going to be life long, once I lose my intended excess weight, I plan to be happy and healthy for the rest of my life
