    Well hello,

    Don't really know what to say here other than I'm Olivia, I'm 21 and I weigh far too much. I'm about 19 stone and ideally I want to be about 12. To be honest it's not so much how much I weigh that bothers me; it's my clothes size. I'm at the moment a reluctant 22/24. Ideally I want to be a size 14 so I can shop everywhere again! I hate the variety being cut just because of how big I am!!!! I'm 21 and want to look and feel as good as other people my age.

    My problem isn't so much that I eat too much at meal times...it's what I eat and snacking that is my problem. My boyfriend and I are really lazy when it comes to cooking so we'll either do the quickest thing we have, rather than the healthiest, or just phone for a takeaway.

    I've started today and plan to use my exercise bike this afternoon for half an hour. Contrary to what people might think I am quite fit in terms of exercise. I don't do as much as I should but I'm quite competent and don't get tired too easily.

    Anyway, I'd really love for some support and will really give as much as I get. I find things like this really inspirational as noone I know is as big as me so they don't understand. My boyfriend tries but fails miserably, bless him. It doesn't help that he eats what he wants when he wants and stays perfectly slim and toned with minimal effort...:mad: lol

    Anyway, it's lovely to meet you all...hope to hear from some of you soon!

    Olivia

    Welcome a Olivia - I'm new too, been on here 2 days and completely hooked!

    I'm 37 but if it's any consolation I still feel 20. Stick with your plan and you will see the results - I was good for the whole week and didn't loose but I know if I carry on next week will work. You sounds really postive and that's what counts - celebrate your achievements no matter how small they come you will acheive in the end.

    Good luck and enjoy the forum
