Hello. I've just joined as I need to lose about 20kg to reach my good BMI and increase my activity from almost zero to more than zero. I'm only just over 5' tall so extra weight makes me look short and dumpy. In fact I look like all the women in my family so it must be in the genes! Not too good at counting calories but know that I need to cut out the alcohol and butter and start moving around more. I enjoy swimming but not running and I don't like doing things in groups so I'll probably just sneak into the pool incognito and quietly get on with it.
