From a Porkie Pie to a Skinny Minnie!
I've been mooching round this site for a good while now and decided enough is enough - I need to join all you lovely people in my journey to becoming slim, healthy and happy! So I thought I would start with a little bit about me.. we're all friends, right :)
I'm female, 21 years old and at University, but on my year in industry this year as I'm part of a 4 year course. I have had problems with my weight ever since I can remember, always been the bigger one of my group of friends. It has always bothered me, but I just haven't ever had the motivation to get it gone.. I have always thought (and been told) I'm not that fat. My BMI is around 26 so not too bad, but I am finally at my whits end - I want to be a nice slim size 10 while I'm still young!!
So today I am starting fresh and using My Fitness Pal to calorie count. I am aiming for around 1200 calories per day, plus running 3 times per week. Excited to start! My first goal is to be in the '10 stone zone' again which will be very exciting.
Any tips or advice is welcome here, I am all ears for everyone :)
