    Hi everyone,

    My name is Jaycee, and I'm 19 years old. I'm studying Geography at the University of Worcester but originally from Plymouth in Devon, and will be transferring to Plymouth University in September. I love animals, photography, and drawing.
    I've always been a "big" ish child, a little larger than the others at school. I've lost weight and gained weight, but I've never been happy with my weight. At Christmas I got weighed at the doctors just as a routine thing for my prescription, and I was shocked to see I was about 190 lbs. Since then I've been saying "That's it, I'll lose weight", but things just keep going downhill!
    Being a student it is hard to lose weight as I am on a very tight budget and seem to be sticking to foods I feel comforatble cooking! I have the advantage of moving back home in May which will help, as I plan on joining the gym at home. I'm currently a size 16/18, and would like to be a size 12/14, so nothing too drastic but I know it would make a huge difference to me.
    I want to be able to wear shorts on holiday, or even a bikini at a push, and not feel really self concious. I want to not be seen as the "fat" one and I want to finally be happy with myself! I mainly want to do it for myself but also for my boyfriend, who I've been with for 3 1/2 years now, and he was once very big and he lost loads of weight....so I know he will support me.
    I've joined as seeing everbodies posts has got me really motivated, and you all seem like lovely people :)
    This is me: (The first picture was geek dress up night...I don't always dress like that hehe!)

    So...hello everyone :)
