Hi :)

Firstly I admire you so much for your story. I'm currently in a relationship with someone so discouraging about me trying to lose weight. Ok, so my stats are probably not what you're looking for in a buddy (I'm also 5'2, I'm 23 and weigh 125lbs) but I used to be a whole lot heavier (183lbs) due to being in a 'comfortable' relationship... Im still really struggling with the loss of that relationship over a year and a half on, and have got myself into terrible binging and purging habits that help me maintain this weight (I'd ideally like to drop 13lb but I think that's psychological if I'm honest)

I think you're really brave for coming through your divorce and I'm glad you are getting help. I know you can make the changes you want now you're free of the man who was holding you back from being what you wanted (healthy and in control) and I'd love to help you stay motivated. Good luck hun!

It's a similar kind of thing, I was diagnosed diabetic aged 13 and had to give up full fat fizzy drinks... One time I had full fat by accident in a club and it made me feel so sick and gave me an upset stomach the next day. The texture was just gross, all syrupy eurghhhh

Motivation 5 reasons why you want to lose weight Jan 24 2012

1. I've struggled with my weight since early childhood, I want to be at peace with my body.

2. I want to feel confident enough to get out of my negative relationship and feel like I deserve to be with someone who is not only good looking but a nice person!

3. Vanity reasons... One word - bikini!

4. So I can run a 10k this year and not be the last person to finish.

5. My ex bought me a dress over a year ago which was just a bit too tight. I'd love it to do up and look how it should!

Weight Loss 3-Month Bikini Body Challenge! Jan 03 2012

Hey all, this is so me :) I started my weight loss journey in 2007 aged 18 weighing 182 pounds (I'm 5'2 so I was a bit of a pudding) and lost 42 pounds in about five months, going down to 140. Ive been losing a few pounds here and there since then and am down to 124. I'm not toned at all though so I'm still not comfortable with myself, I think for my height I would look good in a bikini at 110 so that's the aim but with toning as well. Good luck everyone!

Hiya, sounds like an ideal group for me, am five foot two and weigh 122 (started out at 182 a couple of years ago, got down to about 140 which I've maintained until this summer when I decided I wanted to drop another 20 or so), started eating better and exercising again in the last couple of weeks. Pleased with my progress but gotta get through Christmas! New target is 112 and I'm gonna say valentines as a good time to make that. I'm 23 years old and would love to be a uk size 8 which I think I would be if I dropped 10 pounds. When are we weighing in?

I could be wrong but I'd heard that diet drinks can cause weight gain as the sweetners trick your body into thinking it has energy coming and thus reacts by making you hungry....
