    Well ive always been troubled by my weight since i was about 10-11

    It all started coming on when i stopped gymnastics before that i was very active but ate alot.

    When i stopped i still ate the same but did alot less exercise :(

    Ive been bullied since i was about 12 because of my weight and its led to severe self confidence problems.

    Im ashamed to admit the fact that at 16 ive never kissed a girl and never really been in a relationship.

    I wouldnt normally come on a site like this but i feel if i want to lose weight then my best bet was to join a site where i can get support and guidance when i dont really like talking about it to anybody i know personally.


    Anyway hello all.

    My current weight is 16 stone 3 lbs im 5 foot 11 inches maybe 6 foot

    My Bmi is 31.7

    My target weight is 179lbs which is the upper average for my height and age but i may go lower.

    Anyway wish me luck.
