You have your age in your favor too. It is so much easier to loose in your twenties than in your fifties. If that is any consolation :)

You can do it!

You have a great positive attitude. Keep that and continue your workouts and watch your nutrition. Add strength training! You can do it!

Hi, I'm a 20-something, not-quite-professional Canadian woman who will be moving to London in 6 months for my post graduate degree. I've been overweight since puberty, though luckily I've never reached the BMI that would label me "obese." I recently moved back to Canada from Japan, the land of miniature people. Living there I became dejected, depressed, and VERY self conscious about my weight. All these things served not to motivate me, but instead led to my eating even less healthy and staying in so I wouldn't have to face all the skinny people. It was horrible! At least I was riding my bicycle everywhere. If not for that I probably would have gained about 20 lbs instead of just 5.

Anyways, I see people here in Canada who are bigger than me sometimes, and I don't feel as depressed. I know I shouldn't think about it in that way, but for some reason, knowing I'm not alone in being overweight is helping to motivate me. I can't do the Biggest Loser kind of bootcamp workouts, but I CAN count my calories and I CAN say no to that ice cream cone, and I CAN force myself to do the Tracy Anderson Mat Method (oh my god, it hurts so much, though) and get on that treadmill at least 4 times a week. I CAN pack a healthy lunch for work and drink crystal light instead of pop. I can even cut down on the amount of coffee I drink, though it might be the hardest task 've set for myself.

So, with all the things I can do, I'm trying not to think of the things I can't do and be positive. Nice to meet you, and if you want, challenge me to do something, and I'll add it to the list of things I can do :)
