Hello everyone, I'm new here. I'm in that place where you book a holiday and suddenly depressively think about all the times when you were younger and could get away with a bikini. I'm currently 23 years old, 12st, 5'5, not very active, smoker, don't eat frequently but tend to binge on unhealthy stuff like cheese and fried chicken. And I've decided it's time to change. Tomorrow my e-cig arrives and I am determined to make the switch from real cigarettes. Over the last few days I've switched to eating purely fruit, veg and roast chicken or white fish. Today I did a 30 minute jog which almost killed me but I'm sure it'll get easier over time. I want to actually structure my weight loss in order to lose at least 2 stone by the beginning of June when I go away. I've been looking at people's success stories but it's getting me down that a lot of people who lose weight successfully are following these formulated plans that require specialist purchased packages and other expensive stuff. I'm a student and I can't afford things like that; in fact, it's eating into my bank enough having to purchase healthy fresh food for just one person. Strangely, takeaway food and ready meals work out much cheaper It's a good thing I'm quitting smoking. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good resource to help me lose weight on a really tight budget?
