    Hi everybody,
    my name is Mila and I am not exactly new to losing weight... have been on this quest for a while now. I always found it great to exchange information with other people and have online support, but the last community I was on, I do not like anymore, so I thought it was time for a change.

    About me: I am 25, study and work and am just starting a new chapter in my life, as I have recently ended a very serious long term relationship and started working hard on my happiness rather than everyone else's.:p
    I also went back to a hobby I used to love as a child, dance, and discovered a real passion there.

    Weightwise, I was always normal sized but never skinny and when I stopped exercising (dancing) to work full time and study full time I ballooned to over 75 kg. Eating right and exercising I managed to get down to about 60 kg and then started gaining a bit again especially this summer where I was quite lazy, so now I am (probably) about 65 kg, ideally by the end of december I would like to weigh 57 kg, so about a kg a week.
    My plan is to eat around 1500-1700 cals and to do my dance classes 5-6 days a week (which is what I signed up for and just a day or two more than I did last year). I am restricted in my diet because I have food allergies and have recently found out I cannot eat milk-products either, so I am eliminating lactose this month (on top of gluten which I have not eaten in a few years).

    I really really want it this time, I feel like a totally different person than I was and now my exterior just needs to match my positive and happy interior.
    Hope to find some "buddies" on here, Mila

    Hi there Mila and :welcome2: to the forums, its nice to see such an interesting introduction - I am also 25. I'm sorry to hear about your recent relationship breakup, its never easy but it sounds like you have everything worked out for yourself which I'm glad to hear, good for you for dusting yourself off like you have! :)

    You will be made very welcome here I am sure of that and there is no nastiness or anything on this forum, I do hope that you will enjoy your time here unlike the last forum that you do not like anymore.

    Wow I have to say that you are going to lose weight fast with all the exercise you have planned! I too love dance but I do not attend classes at the moment due to my mum being unwell I like to try and stick around for her if I can. But I plan on starting classes asap but for now I have my dance games on the Wii to keep me going.

    Which dance style do you like?

    Anyway I hope to see you around and have a chat with you soon. Good luck! :) X
