Age: I am 27

Work: childcare worker ~ looking for another career

Realationship: married

MSN: yep just ask if you want it

Great idea:

Age: I am 21

Work: unemployed - looking for another career... was so determined to become a lawyer and 'change the world' - but am seriously thinking about becoming a dietitian.

Relationship status: In a relationship

Children: Ask me in a few years! I'm too young

Reason for joining the forum: I needed a little bit of guidance from people who understood what I was going through. The support I have received has been fantastic.

Best weightloss tip: DRINK WATER!!! I can't stress that enough.

True true! The only thing that is putting me off at the moment is having to do another 4 year science based degree. Such a gruelling process! I would love to help change people's lives... After of course I get healthy myself!

P.S. Did you find the vege chips or am I sending some your way?!
