Hi, my name's Kim, I'm 20 and have been 'dieting' on and off for as long as I can remember! I know we (or at least 'I') say this every time but this time it really does feels different, possibly because my I have my wonderful boyfriend supporting me (he's a massive inspiration as a few years ago he lost around 3 stone and last year completed his first marathon ) along with this amazing site. Anyway, I'm hoping to lose at least 2.5 stone for our holiday in September and have managed to drop just over 8lb in the last 5 weeks (albeit mostly those excess Christmas pounds!) Alas, I'm faltering slightly at the moment as I seem to have already hit the infamous 'plateau' stage, having only lost around 1/2 lb over the last week :sigh: I know I should be grateful but between this and other uni-related stresses I'm feeling a tad despondent about it all. It has, however, also been my TOTM, was wondering whether this was a contributor to weight fluctuations? And am just being a little shameless in this bid for support lol.
