Well ruby we are here to support you mate. The first thing you need to do is start to keep a food and exercise diary. Then I would suggest you measure yourself in the morning. Bust, waist and hips. Then you need to make a plan. Obviously you want to lose 9kgs. How are you going to go about that???? What food/drinks that aren't good for you can you cut from your diet? How much time can you spend a day exercising and are you used to exercising or are you a beginning. If you are a beginner, start with gentle walks for 15 - 20 mins a day and build up from there. If you have been exercising for some time and are reasonably fit, then up the tempo of what you are doing.

Finally, have a read of some of the posts in here. If you have any questions at all, no matter how silly you think they are, then please write a post. We are here to help. Hope this has helped Ruby. :D

4 kilos is probably enough ruby. My height is 160 cms and I want to be 60kgs. That is fine with me. You can do a bmi test and that will tell you what your bmi is at the moment. And if you pop in say 65 kilos it will tell you what your bmi is at that weight and if you look at the chart underneath it says what is normal etc. Here is the link.

Your BMI for height and weight is in the healthy weight range as it is, many people aim for the mid way pont of the healthy weight range so to have a bmi of 22-23(does this make sense?)which for your height is about 65 kgs so about 4-5kg loss for you, but so much depends on what your body shape is my bmi is 23 but I want to lose some more and incorporate exercise because I still have flabby bits. Maybe some support like from weight watchers or something similar will help you devolp good eating regime- but this forum has given me the best help so check it out!!

Hello Ruby and welcome to the forum.

If you want more information check out the :arrow: home page as there are a lot of great articles and tips for weightloss. There are also various tools to help you work out goals and plans etc.

I would check out the yellow pages for a psychologist, only because I use the yellow pages to find everything else! :? Perhaps speaking to your doctor might help as he/she may have advice and/or a name of someone who can help.

All the best and let us know how you go, good luck on your weightloss journey. :D

Is that all???Image Geepers!!! I ate out of boredom, happiness, sadness, guilt, lonliness, and any other "comfort" excuse I could think of for so many years, that I now have to get uncomfort(able) as much as possibleImage to sweat off the 75kg that take up residence on my hips, and thighs, and butt, and, and.....Imagewhen I wasn't looking!!!
