Hobbies/Interests: Running, Gym classes, Travelling, Reading

Height: 5' 3"

Eye/Hair Color: green eyes, blonde hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Current campaign from 10th April

Starting Weight: 132

Goal Weight: 119

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Weekend weakness!

Following any specific plan: reduce portion size and eat healthily

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Currently the difference is that now i can't exercise as i normally do because i broke my foot so i need to be extra good on the food

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm a bit of a long term yo-yoer i.e. historically about 3 years from peak to trough and i've done that a number of times. My highest weight has been about 144lb but not been there for about 4 years now, so mindful it's kind-of due! Lowest ever was 114 about 3 years ago and i've gradually been increasing since then so it's time to address it again. I've never followed official diets, but just been of the 'sensible eating and plenty of exercise' brigade. Also if i can turn it into a competition with a friend or two then that's where i really see results!!! So hopefully this forum will keep me focused and motivated at least until i can exercise again (sob of self pity)

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I finally got my mind in the right place. Instead of trying to lose weight to look better, or to be sexier for my husband..I am losing weight, because I simply did not feel healthy at my highest weight, and realised that I was to an age where all this extra weight was seriously threatening my life.
