Hey everyone, newbie here...
Hi guys :)
I'm new to this - hoping to join the minimins community & find lots of friendship / support from fellow dieters! Hopefully having some pals on here and seeing everyone else's progress will keep me more on track.
A little about me: I'm 20, only 5ft 2 and weigh 13 stone at the moment. :eek: [just weighed myself - nearly fainted] haha
I've put on about 2 stone in the last 2 years, and I really need to sort it out.
Not too long into the distant past (4 years ago) I weighed 8 stone. Hard to believe I know. I put on 3 stone in 2 years between the ages of 16 and 18, not sure why. Possibly because I passed my driving test so suddenly did drastically less exercise and drove everywhere! Oops.
I'm hating the way I look at the moment and I really want to lose some weight for my 21st birthday which is in August. Probs havent really left myself enough time to do anything drastic, but I still think 3 months is long enough to make a difference!!
Hopefully I'll lose at least 1.5 stone..
I'm tracking my diet through myfitnesspal and I also have a fitbit which I'm using to sync with it to see just how little exercise I actually do :sigh:
Calorie counting I think is the best way - I'm trying to stay to the targets on myfitness pal (50% carb, 20% protein, 30% fat) and I do believe this is the healthiest way - not synthetic diets like the shakes etc.
If anyone has any tips/advice that would be great ! Thanks guys :)
