Hi I'm Zoe :)

I think I'm pretty young compared to most people here (I'm only fifteen), but I thought this site would be helpful with my weight loss. I've been overweight since I was about eight or nine, as I take after my dad's side of the family (all of which of obese) and have always been prone to comfort eating.

At the start of this year, I was about 13 stone, which is pretty big considering I'm only 5'2". I'm now down to 9 1/2 - 10 stone (It seems to vary from week to week), and I hopefully want to get down to 8 1/2 - 9 stone. I'm struggling to lose those last 10 - 15lbs though, which is why I joined this site. :)

Weird as it is, the trigger was actually dropping out of public school. I'm homeschooled now, but for a few months at the start of the year I wasn't in any kind of education, so I had a lot of free time. Sitting around the house all day got boring fast, so I started going out for walks and bike rides and such (something I didn't like doing usually because I hated running into people I know, but seeing as they were all in school, I didn't have to worry about it). Because I wasn't in school anymore, I wasn't so miserable, and I stopped comfort eating. The first stone or so I lost without really noticing. It was when other people started to notice that I started to make an actual effort to lose weight, because people saying I'd lost weight and was looking better made me feel good about myself. :)

Hi Zoe- I think you are amazing to have lost the weight you have without going to a club or anything.

Sounds like you have this under control now and that last stone will just fall away if you keep up your exercise etc.

I think its great that you have taken action when you are still young so that you can enjoy the gorgeous, new, slim you - not that you probably weren't gorgeous before.... :)

Let us know how you are doing.

Welcome Zoe and well done on losing the weight so far. You've also still got some growing to do at your age - and could gain an inch or 2 in height and find that you'll be at the right weight then!

Keep up with the exercising - gentle every day exercise that you enjoy works better than forcing yourself to do a workout that you hate and will end up giving up on.
