good afternoon!

Hey all, I have just registered and I thought I might introduce myself. My name is Mikayla and I am a 21 year old student. Im unlike a lot of other kids my age, seeing as im a great deal shorter than other girls. I am only 4'10. I have an incredibly difficult time trying to stay at a healthy weight at my height(especially as a student and being around greasey food all the time, PLUS, i am a chef at a DELICIOUS italtian restaurant.. so that doesnt help!!!). Every pound just sticks to me!!!

I am currently 120. I know, everyone is probably thinking im crazy for being unhappy, BUT. Keep in mind...I am about half a foot or more SHORTER than the average female. My goal is to be between 90 and 95. So I've got about thirty pounds to shed. I have neither lost, or gained any weight in the last 8 months(why, I do not know). But I have had it with myself, and decided I need a bit of inspiration..so here I am!

Hi Mikayla

Welcome to the forum. You'll find loads of support and encouragement here to help you reach your target weight.

Have you an idea of which diet plan you will be following, or will you be doing your own thing?
Ive decided to give the Slim Fast diet a try. Combined with a new exercise dvd I purchased that looks promising( Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred)


Here for the Journey
:welcome: Mikayla. You've pressed all the right buttons for support and lots of fun out here in cyber space. Good luck with your weightloss. :)

Hi and welcome. have a look at the inspirational slide show and you will be totally inspired.

You have not got a lot to lose and i know you will be able to do it. are you going to do your own calorie counting or healthy eating or going to join something like WW or SW

And must be very difficult working in a gorgeous restaurant too
