Long time lurker here, but finally joined today.
I have 117 lbs to lose and I am so excited to be a part of minimins now and get started on my mission to shed those lbs.
My head has been in the wrong place for a while now, but now it's in the right place and I'm sooo ready for this.
I would like to get to 200 lbs to start with, then take it from there, so as of today - Monday 14th October 2013, I have 117 lbs to go.
I've always been bigger, and over the last few years, I've slowly been piling on those pounds.
My partner and I both work for an oil company and we work long hours - leaving the house at 7am, getting home at 6.30pm, so we are always eating out (it doesn't help living in the city centre and having take aways and restaurants at our doorstep!), and cooking is the last thing on my mind after a hard days work! But no excuses now.....
My photo was in the local newspaper last week and I was disgusted with the way I look. It was a full body shot, and that made me realize that I have to do something about my weight NOW
My plan is just to watch what I'm eating - healthy, plenty of fruit and veg to begin with, protein, and cut out all the rubbish esp alcohol!
I'm 100% ready now to change my eating habbits and to get more exercise....
I have the willpower!
