A little about me... Female, 33, married, shiftworker, living in Queensland, Australia.

Found this site the other day after downloading the app on my phone.

Started my weight loss journey last year with calorieking and managed to lose a few nkilos (though put that back on over xmas). Looking forward to getting back on the wagon. I need to lose about 27kg (aprox 60 pounds). I'm pretty good at calorie counting and keeping a food journal but struggle with exercise!

Would love a couple of buddies for support, motivation and friendship.
Who is in control, the food or me?

Start weight - 82.8kg (4 Jan 10)
1st goal - 78.0kg (reached 18 Mar 10)
2nd goal - 74.0kg
3rd goal - 69.0kg (half way mark)
4th goal - 65.0kg
5th goal - 60.0kg
End goal - 55.0kg

Hello!

I'll definitely be your buddy! But I have the EXACT OPPOSITE problem ... I can work out for HOURS on end, can't seem to have any control over the food part, i love food way to much, i try though!

How bizarre is this... BEFORE I saw this post reply, I was looking at the members list of my challenge group. I noticed that you had a similar start and goal weight to myself, (plus we were in the same challenge), so I sent you a buddy request... then I pop over here to check out who replied to my post and wow! LOL

*edit - okay I've just realised that you probably replied to this post BECAUSE of the buddy request I sent. LOL I'm on night shift so I can blame 3am for my utter lack of common sense. Very Happy
