Hi Isa here..
Just Under 15st 5ft 4 and on a mission!!
Going to count calories (using a free online food diary -*****- am I allowed to post that here? - please edit me if not) and use Wii fit + EA sports active + walking for exercise.
Looking forward to the challenge and meeting you all.
Biggest motivator so far - my colleague who thanks I can't do it. Grrr .... oh ..... yes .... I .... will.
Target - according to the BMI I should be 9st 6 ... but I think 11st would be a huge difference for me and enough for me to feel comfortable in my own skin and more fit and healthy (according to my online calc - at 2lbs a week I should be there by the end of August!)
Wishing all of you all the best in your endeavors ... (did want to say good luck but that sounded wrong somehow - it's not about luck is it?)

Welcome to MiniMins purpleisa.
Yes you are right, you need at least 50 posts before you can start talking about links.
Good luck on your journey.
Hey,welcome to minimins.
I hate people who say I cant lose weight,they drive me mad!
I hope you do well and show those people that you CAN do it,and you will
Alot of people think the bmi chart thingy is a load of rubbish and deciding to lose weight to a number you feel comfortable with is the best way I think.

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome and supportive words.
Becky - nice to meet a fellow wii fan!! My faves are boxing and hula hoop.
I find the yoga and muscle training quite hard at the moment - not sure if I will ever be able to do "tree" or "jackknife" (I just do crunches instead) but I will keep trying ... I am already slightly less "unbalanced" !!
I have also just purchased EA Sports - which is more "serious" than wii fit but does seem to build up more of a sweat. (Calories about the same though). Its also nicer to me than that cheeky wee balance board - I think he's telling me my IQ not my age haha.
I've started a thread on Wii in the fitness section so that all we wii fans can talk about our wee wii's (still not got over the name of this console yet !)
