Smile New fat chick here

Hi everybody, I found this site by accident and thought "what a great idea".
I am 29 and live in Australia and am embarking on a "lifestyle change" to lose my fat FOREVER, hopefully.
I don't have an exact amount yet that I am trying to lose, but it's around 30kg, yep, 30kg, it sounds like so much, and I don't want to fall off the wagon like I have every other time.

Hi Liamsmummy, I am also a newbie. However I found this site on purpose just because I need to talk about this issue and my husband is ready to strangle me, He's so sick of it. Poor guy! I'm needing to loose about 50 lbs FOREVER! Sorry I'm not sure about the conversion from lbs to kg. But I DO know that I am sick of doing it the wrong way and not getting anywhere.
Just so you know I am a 37year old mother of 3, a nursing student, from Independence Kentucky. Good luck to you and to all us newbies!!

Liamsmummy and Deb! You are going to LOVE this website. There is so much support, information, and just plain fun! I'm addicted to it now!

30 kg is about 66 lbs, and you're not alone Liamsmummy, a lot of us have a long way to go. We're all in this together, so feel free to talk about anything you want, that's what we're all here for!

Morning Ladies and Gents!!!
Day two! Ok I'm up and adam but I haven't excersised yet. I will as soon as I get done posting this, honest! I was really good about my eating yesterday and took the stairs at work instead of the elevator. Every little bit counts right? So here I go AGAIN. I guess its just a matter of how bad you want it,
and I really want to be thin again. ( I wasn't always this big).
So good luck today everyone. Let's go get 'em!!!

Welcome Syrena! I'm also doing WW, I've doing it for about 5 weeks now and so far so good! It's a great plan.

Good luck, this is definitely a great website for support!
