I'm an 18 year old girl from England.
I'm currently having a year off before I go back to college in September, so I thought I'd use this time to focus on myself, my health and fitness!
I've always been quite tall for my age, but I think I stopped growing at 5'9" (unless I have a growth spurt!)
I've also always been a bit overweight, since I was little - just in the 'overweight' category on a BMI calculator, but over the last couple of years I've had a tough time (with the loss off a family member and a friend) and turned to comfort eating.
I hadn't checked my weight in a while, and I hadn't noticed myself gaining weight at all... Until I weighed myself today.
I'm a whopping 14st 6lbs... And my BMI is 29.8... Oops.
So I figured instead of getting upset about it, I should turn my upset into determination to exercise more and eat less and more healthily!
I know it might take a while, but my goal weight is 9st 6lbs.
I'd just like to be healthy, happy in myself and to stop just being 'the chubby one.'
Anyway, thanks for reading this far, any support/wisdom/tips would be greatly appreciated
