1) internet search

2) It's fab (not the washing powder, fabulous)

3)don't use messenger or similar, but if people e-mail r pm me I usually try to reply

4) haven't met up with anyone, but have seen 1 member on the bike track!

5) most people on here inspire me, but I find good cameraderie with the long term members and maintenance crew members

(edited cause I missed Q2)

1. how did you find out about this forum = internet search for weight loss forum :D. Found this one and caloriecount but prefer this one as it's aussie based :D

2. what do you think of this forum = I love it. The anonymity of being able to express exactly what I am feeling and not lie to myself pretending that I’m doing well and happy all the time. Knowing that others understand. The support is fab. My family is always at me to lose the weight but they don't support me its more of 'oh bella is on another diet, lets watch her flop at this one' :P .

3. do you keep in touch with other members of this forum via email, messenger etc = Yep sure do. I like meeting new people wether it be in real life or cyber space :D I've added my yahoo addy in just chatting for anyone who is interested in adding me :D

4. have you met up with or planning to meet up with anyone from this forum = yep planning on meeting a member for a walk :D

5. who inspires you the most from this forum = everyone :D I get inspiration from every single one of you :D

Yay sticky beak questions! :D

1) Internet seach, was looking for some more support as am surrounded by skinny friends!

2) I think this forum is the reason im still on track now and havent given again!

3) Yep, ive a buddy on here! :wink:

4) Well no you see, no one wants to come walking with me! :o

5) And everyone on here, whether you lose for the week, its the determination and honesty on here that has kept me going and helped me realise its ok to fail sometimes!

Hey Kate, how about you??

The wise man Stephen King once said - The only way to go on, is to go on. To say 'i can do this' even when you know you cant

You'll find me in the almost there section :)

1. how did you find out about this forum
i'm pretty sure it was just through a google search, i was so happy to find a forum that wasn't american!

2. what do you think of this forum
i think it's incredibly supportive and a huge motivational tool. it's hard work losing weight, and this forum reinforces that you're not alone. it also helps me to understand that we're all in the same boat no matter how much or how little we need to lose

3. do you keep in touch with other members of this forum via email, messenger etc
not really, have exchanged a couple of pm's with people, but that's all. always happy to chat though, just don't use msn anymore

4. have you met up with or planning to meet up with anyone from this forum
not at this stage

5. who inspires you the most from this forum
lots of people - and for different reasons too

5. who inspires you the most from this forum- kim is a massive inspiration, because she started at the same weight i did and ended up at the same weight i have :) she doesn't go in for any of the fad diets and is just so sensible!! i think our attitudes to weight loss are very similar!
