Myself and my boyfriend - Alex. 6th October 2012, on the way to his brothers wedding :)
Hello to anyone that visits my page :)
Just something first, my ticker thing keeps playing up, and for me is saying kilograms when it is supposed to be pounds, but I want to lose between 85 and 95 pounds to get to my goal weight.
I am 18 years old and am currently at 232 pounds, 16.6 stone, the heaviest I have ever been, but that's why I am here..to lose weight :)
I study health and social care and want to study learning disability nursing at university so that's one reason I want to lose weight, nurses are supposed to be healthy. Second reason is that I want a fresh start at university. I don't ever want to forget this weight I am at now, it has made me the person I am.
I also want to lose weight, for obvious reasons like fitting into smaller clothes and looking nice.
I'm not to harsh on myself, as long as I have eaten healthily I don't mind going over my calorie limit. (not by too much of course).
I love cheese..cheese strings, toasties, wotsit, cheese and onion crisps. I also love mash potato and sour cream. I have weird unhealthy habits I guess :)
I love art, sculptures in particular but also enjoy drawing, I like animals and reading.
This is getting too long so I guess I should stop now! :D
I am at 232 pounds or 16.6 stone. I aim to lose between 85-95 pounds but idealy drop to 10.5 stone. This is my long term goal, it may take 2 or 3 years but I will get there with I'm sure effort and a lot of failure but I will get there.
On a shorter note, by this time next year I would like to fit into size 12/14 clothes. Dropping 2/3 dress sizes would be ideal.
My short term goals are to stop smoking. Learn how to cook healthier foods and to take up more exercise
I have only just started my weight loss. So at the moment I am focusing on choosing healthier food. cooking home made meals and to get into a good exercise routine.
I struggle with motivation a lot! So I tend to give into food temptation. However I am trying to resit just "having a little bit more" because that's when I fail.
I have seen on a few peoples pages they have done rewards for when they reach certain goals and I think it's a really good idea...I'm sure this will update when I think of new things I want but so far...
200 pounds - go shopping for new clothes.
180 pounds - treat myself to a mini holiday with my boyfriend or buy something expensive :D
160 pounds - ???
140 pounds - ???
I live in Guildford in England. I am 18 and studying towards becoming a learning disability nurse.
I have a pet dog called roxy and two goldfish :)

P.S. if you go to your start page, at the top, go to email/preferences. Half way down that page, there is personal info, there is a box marked 'metric something' untick that, and your ticker will register in pounds,

Whatever else happens, remind yourself that your BF loves you NOW for what you are, your weight doesn't come into it. Change little habits, a little at a time. One thing a month. This is for a lifetime, instant fixes, believe me, don't work.
