My name is Bev and I am 43(21 in my head)and married with 4 children, I have two stepchildren aged 28 and 26 and two of my own aged 24 and 22.

I am a Civil Servant based in an Army camp in Tidworth (UK). I actually sit at a desk all day. I do try and get up and walk about a fair bit but we are only in a small building.

The reason I decided to lose weight is because my mam bought me a really nice long dressing gown for Christmas, I put it on and as I walked past the mirror I caught sight of my profile, I looked like a Weeble. It was at that point that I thought to myself "I really need to lose weight" that was on the 1st Jan and since then I have just stuck to my diet only falling off the wagon every now and then.

I eat fish and steamed rice as much as I can with loads of veggies and I go to the gym three times a week. I swim when I can and do Wii fit. I would not say I was a fit person but I am by no means unfit. I am 5ft 9inches tall and luckily for me that hides most of my weight.

I love reading, eating and Geocaching.

Looking for a buddie
Hi, Before I gained the weight and my kids were that young I used to take them out on their bikes with a picnic and fast walk/jog for a couple of hours and that used to work for me. The while the kids were off playing in a field somewhere that would give me the "me" time. Like people say it does not work for everyone but it worked for me. Good Luck with the weight loss!! Wink

I spent an hour this morning on the Wii fit and came to log it on here and realised I have no idea how many calories you use. It would be great if I could meet someone else who is using the Wii fit as an aid to weight loss and fitness.

Hi, You can add me as a buddy to keep you going. It's better to have people to talk to than do it on your own. Good luck with the weight loss.
