Let me introduce myself. My name is Bethany, I'm 5"6, and 20 stone and 8 pounds. Food is my weakness, and I have only just started to understand that. I know this seems a bit like your ordinary wight loss thread. It isn't, and it won't be. I do aim to lose weight, mainly because of health reasons. Don't get me wrong - I'm happy being the size I am. I feel beautiful and I have a great support systems in my boyfriend and friends who encourage me in who I am. I have chosen to start losing weight, through the miracle that is Slimming World. It seems great so far! Granted I only started properly today. Anyway... I have three goals for this year. 1) Lose weight. 2) Start to learn to drive. 3) Figure out what to do with my life. I'll probably write on each of these things, among other things that remain important in my life. Short post I know, but this is just an introduction.
