    Hello im Becky, im 18 year old and i ALWAYS think about food. I wanna lose weight to bad (not alot but enough to make me look and feel better)
    Ive been on a few diets the only successful ones have been the paul McKenna i can make you thin book and weight loss CD (lost over 2 stone in a couple of months and could still eat what i wanted but just smaller portions) and the special k (but i get bored of it easily)

    I really wanna start weight watchers, theres a class at the school round the corner from my house but i dont wanna go on my own so im gonna beg my mum to join with me lol

    I wouldnt say im 'fat' but im almost overweight for my height. My BMI is almost reaching the 'overweight' mark and because im only about 5'4 it deffinately shows :mad:

    Im a UK dress size 10 and can fit into some size 8's depending on the material and shops.
    I really need to tone up but im quite lazy so it's hard for me
    The worst part of my body is my legs:cry: they are really short so it makes them look even fatter and i have cellulite which really knocks down my confidence especially for a girl my age

    heres a recent pic (took a few day ago) showing me in a size 10 dress but my legs really make it look horrible


    the second pic i like because i think the top part of my body is fine (apart from my un-toned stomach which hangs over my jeans when i bend down:()

    Im going on holiday in 3 weeks time and im looking forward to it.. i think ill look fine in my bikinis but the cellulite is really pissing me off and my belly!

    I dont really know what else to say but i hope i get some good advice from you guys on here :p

    Welcome Becky,

    Congratulations and well done on losing two stone!:happy096:


    You look absolutely beautiful and just looking at these photos I am at a loss to see where you need to lose weight from.
    Exercise like walking and cycling is very good for the circulation in the legs and eating loads of veggies and some fruit along with making sure you don't let yourself get dehydrated all go along way in the fight against cellulite.

    If you are a smoker, you could give that up as well as it does impair your circulation.

    The legs are always the last to slim down as they are use to carrying the extra weight around and therefore takes them that bit longer to adjust to the new weight, but they will in time, be patient.

    For every stone you lose, they say you need to give it a month for the skin to spring back into shape.

    Again walking is proved to be one of the best forms of exercise for getting rid of stubborn belly fat.

    Weight Watcher is excellent for teaching you how to read labels and being aware of what is in our food and also on portion control and size.

    Good you have your Mum to go with you.

    Do you mind if I ask what weight you are now?

    I am 5' 4" myself but as you can see from my weight tracker have some way to go before I am in the healthy BMI range.
