S/C/G: 122/120.6/uk size 8?

Height: 5'3"

Default

1. What's your top weight, current weight and target?
I guess the highest I've ever weighed is the high 120s, although I've never really weighed myself in the past so I'm not sure. Currently I'm weighing in about 123/124ish. I haven't decided on a target weight yet, but I would really like to be firmly a (UK) size 8 (I think that's US 6?). I'm thinking my target will be somewhere in the region of 110 - 115lbs.

2. How tall are you?
5'3" (plus a little bit!)

3. What's your family situation?
I live at my dad's house partly with my dad and my sister -- though my dad is often away visiting his girlfriend and my sister is often away visiting her boyfriend! The rest of the time I live in a rented house with close friends/housemates. I have a boyfriend of over two years but we don't live together.

4. Where do you live?
UK

5. One GOOD book.
'The Chrysalids', John Wyndam.

6. One GOOD song.
'Devil's Dance Floor', Flogging Molly.

7. One GOOD TV show.
Firefly.

8. One awesome food you don't want to live without.
can coffee be a food? I couldn't live without that. Most other things I think I could live without. Coming up with one off the top of my head, sun dried tomatoes. Oh, and chips (fries) haha.

9. One weightloss lie you've heard.
That it's 'just' calories in vs. calories out. I know that's a large part of it, but our body is far too complicated to claim that it's definitely 100% that simple.

10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness.
I don't have one yet!

It's not really a tip, but my mom always insisted that we all eat at the table together, and she fed us nutritionally balanced meals with lots of veggies. After all, I was skinny throughout my childhood - it was only after I left home and mom's cooking that I blew up
