My name is Ashton, and I'm new to the forum, but old to weight loss.
I'm a 21 year old kid and I've been trying to lose weight for a long time now but haven't had any long term success.
Just a couple of months ago I weighed myself and I was the heaviest I've been in a long time, which was really sad, but also the motivation I needed to get right back into the gym and start losing weight - this time FOR GOOD!
I actually started a weight loss blog and challenged myself openly online to lose 100lbs in 6 months, and started off really well, but unfortunately in the last few weeks have lost some momentum and motivation to even get my sneakers on...
That's when I started having a read on this forum and lots of others, and seeing so many people out there doing it just like I am, which was what I needed to get me going again!
Right now I'm 21 pounds down, 79 to go!
So I just wanted to say hi and hope to see everyone around :-)
