Hello :D

I've been posting a little and mostly lurking here and I've found it really helpful to keep me motivated. Especially the brilliant Before & After Photo Thread :D.

Anyway I'm 17 years old and have been overweight all my life... even as a child I was never fat but always bigger than most children. In my teenage years I've often coped with problems by comfort eating, then getting down about my body and comfort eating and getting into that horrible pattern. :(

I hadn't weighed since I was about 10 years old until a couple of months ago when I decided enough was enough and I wanted to do something about it. I've just been calorie counting and exercising and so far it's paying off so I hope to stick around here and one day be able to post before and after pics of my own :D.
