    Hi all

    I'm in my mid 20s and have been working in an office as a grad job for a year, finding the weight finding its way on with the amount of sitting down I do.

    I'd like to lose 2 stone in total but would like to try and lose around 1-2lbs a week if possible so am aiming for around 1400 kcals a day, measuring with MyFitnessPal.

    I'd really like a buddy to be able to support and to support me when I get the craving - I've only just found this forum so hopefully it'll be a help!

    Wishing you all the best in your healthy eating.

    I'd be happy to buddy up. :)

    When do you go on holiday?

    I'm off on 14th November and I'd like to lose 12kg by then (so 2lb per week).

    I am auntyfred on mfp. Feel free to add me. I use a combination of mfp and a newly acquired fitbit.
    I am going away end of Oct with my husband and Granddaughter. Plan on climbing Kinder Scout. Been a few years since I was last up there.
    Earlier this year I told my husband, "I think my hiking days are over".
    In August I completed a 6.5 mile walk up some very steep hills in Northumberland.
    On getting back I was looking at the photos. "Is that me near the top?" I asked my husband
    "yes dear you were up there like a f'ing mountain goat". I think that was a compliment :)
    Seems my hiking days are most definately not over.
