First of all so glad to have found such an amazing support group and forum. It will really help with this journey!

A little about me..

I am 29, Australian girl and work in a fast moving corporate job.. I was never the 'skinny' girl but up until my mid 20's sat around 80kg.. now almost 30 I can see I have ignored my health and need to do something about this! I travel a lot for work.. this comes along with eating out a lot, social drinks, buffet breakfast...

I guess for me, I have had a wake up call due to a health issue in my family and a lot of it relates to the person being over weight. I also don't want to turn 30 and think why have I let it get this far..

Long story short.. i downloaded myfitness pal, and thru that and a 1200 calorie diet i have lost a little weight. The next step- here I am - day 1 on duromine... I know I can and will do this, I am motivated and looking forward to reaching my goal! :)

Start of weightloss journey: 106kg - 1st June, 2014

Today's weight - 99.6kg (31st July)

Goal: 70kg.
