    Hello hello, I stumbled across this website last week and have been inspired by everything that I've seen here!
    My struggles with my weight go back a number of years! I was a really big teenager and managed to lose about 40kgs back in my early 20s. Now I'm 26 and recently married and since we've bought our first home, I've put on A LOT of weight! I dont ever want to go back to how I was and I've since tried every single diet I can get my hands on!! All I ended up doing was treating my body badly and putting all the weight back on!
    This time, I'm taking it the healthy way...I'm looking at whole foods, natural foods, masses of water and herbal tea, portion control and good ol' exercise! I dont want to completely limit myself to a very strict plan as I'm wanting to create a routine and live like this the rest of my life - with space for wine and choccies :p
    I hope that you all can help keep my inspired! So far I've lost 8kgs towards my goal and I'm still trucking!
    So hi! Nice to meet you all!
    :D
