Hii there. I've been lurking on this particular section of the site since I joined last week, so I suppose I should really post something to say hi to you all with, so here it goes.


A little about me: I'm an eighteen year old student in the North East of England, I really want to study law at University, specifically Newcastle, which I hope to start at in 2011. I live with my parents, my girlfriend, Zof, my cat, Cassie, and my chihuahua, Mischa.

I have been overweight pretty much my whole life, and the only real weight loss success, despite many diets, was back in 2007, when I went from 17 stone to 14 stone through less than healthy means. I then promptly stopped and have steadily gained a ton of weight since and never -really really- been bothered to change.

Until now. I commit totally, I Mean It This Time. I want to be at a healthy weight, or at least approaching a healthy weight, by the time I start university, so no one there will ever know me as I am now. I also want to use uni as a way to become more active and use the discounted gym membership, something I couldn't consider doing right now.

So far I've lost 13lb, so only another...146 to go? Ish.

Anyway. I love this forum, everyone seems so helpful and supportive, and I hope that this will spur me on and keep me on track.

Love to you all

Welcome to MiniMins and well done on your weight loss so far, 13lb off is excellent:happy096:

What did you do to lose 13lb besides counting calories, did you do any exercise like walking etc?

You are giving yourself plenty of time to shift your weight for Uni next year.

Since I've never really done -any- exercise before, I figured anything at all would be better than nothing. I've been using the aerobics section on the Wii Fit for at least 30 minutes a day, everyday. I hope to do more in the next few weeks, particularly walking :)
