I've been lurking the forums for a few months now and I thought it was about time I posted something. After all, your stories have motivated me to start my own weightloss journey and I figured my chances of success would increase tenfold if I could have the support of you wonderful and inspiring people.
So... here I am. Hello! *waves eagerly*
I guess I should probably say something about my goals, huh? Well, I'm 25 years old and I've been overweight pretty much since primary school. I have a classic apple shape, which means I have skinny chicken legs and a big flabby spare tire around my waist. Oh, and let's not forget the Pillsbury doughboy back. *sigh*
My goal is to melt all that fat away (or most of it, anyway. I wouldn't mind keeping my bust the way it is. That's the ONE consolation of being a chubby girl. Nice, ample bosoms LOL).
I wish to be comfortable enough with my body to :
a) try on a bikini
b) buy said bikini
c) actually wear it in public (oh, that is the stuff of nightmares at the moment. All that flab exposed to the naked eye? Eeeep!)
*looks in the mirror* I THINK I'll have to lose about 30 pounds before I'm ready to take the plunge and throw away my trusty tummy-control bathingsuit. And so here I am! I look forward to getting to know all of you as we go forth in our valiant efforts towards amazing, healthy, sexy new versions of ourselves.
