Hi! My name is Lisa and I'm 23 years old.
I have been overweight since I was about 17, I have always felt unconfortable with my body but I had never thought anything of it, I was tall enough to get away with it, until now. I have gone past over weight to OBESE! Everyone around me says that I don't need to lose weight and that I'm beautiful as I am. However, reccently my parents have started to mention that I'm getting bigger buit they dont offer me the support I need to make they changes.
I want to finally feel comfortable with my body and be happy. I know I will never be a size 8, I have boobs and a bum which I like, but I do want to be slimmer if not to feel comfortable, at least for my health.
I hope to lose over 60lbs with a healthy balanced diet and excercise. My one major down fall is my sweet tooth, I love chocolate and when I get emotional its the one thing I turn too. Eating chocolate has almost become a habit of mine, I will have a bar in the morning and probaly with lunch and then another after tea. So I feel my first major challange will be reducing the amount of chocolate i consume on a daily basis (really doesn't help that easter is just around the corner)
I will also be starting my food diary today for any one that wants to track my progress
Hope everyone is enjoying the sun!
