Default NEWBIE! Please come say hi!

Hello!

I thought I would come and introduce myself to you all. My name is Chloe and I am addicted to food! (Thats how you start when ur addicted to something right? Loud and proud!)

I have been battling with my weight my whole life and have always been a big girl. I was never bullied about my weight and have always been very confident as I am a professional actress, therefore growing up I was always out and proud about who I was. I was never truly happy though.

Since starting my professional career in Musical Theatre 3 years ago I have been lucky enough to be in 3 West End Shows. First of all I played Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray (a role suited to a big girl) then I went into Les Miserables and now I am in WICKED. Most of my friends think I 'suit being big' and its 'working for my career' but I am fed up of being cast in shows because I am big. And the worse thing????? It has been in all my contracts that I WASN'T ALLOWED TO LOSE ANY WEIGHT! I was 15st 5lbs at my biggest and my companies wanted me to stay that way.

Well the good news is, WICKED have agreed this year to let me lose weight and will adjust my costumes accordingly. I am SUPER excited about this and it has really spurred me on.

3 weeks ago I weighed in at 14st8lbs and I had hypnotherapy, since then I have lost 9.5lbs in 3 weeks and I am still going strong. I have never felt so confident about anything. I am also following the simplest diet which is 1500 cals a day... and not eating any chocolate, cakes or crisps unless it is sunday.

So here I am, ready to log my progess and to keep motivated by you lovely people! I am so inspired by so many of your stories! Let DO THIS!

My mini goal is that I want to be 12st7lbs by my 25th birthday in September which is 13 weeks away... 20.5lbs in 13 weeks...doable I reckon! Then my ultimate goal in 10st by next July.....

I will play another leading role, but this time it will be cos of talent and not cos I am big!

I look forward to chatting with you all!

Chloe

Hi Chloe!! Wow we have a west end star in our midst!! Congrats on the loss you've already achieved. That's really awesome. feel free to get involved where ever you feel most comfortable, and take a look at the UK chicks part of the forum. There's a great group of people there who have really become my second family lol and we're mainly calorie counters too.

Anyway, good luck and I hope to see you around

Hi, Chloe! Welcome & congrats on your role in Wicked! That's wonderful that Costuming will work with you as you lose. May they need to tighten those seams every week!

Amazing! I saw Wicked several years ago in the US and it was wonderful. It's my favorite musical and I know most of the songs by heart. You can do this. I'm so glad that they're giving you the opportunity.
