New here: Introduction and Goals for March'17

Hello everyone,

I joined very recently and I am happy that I did. I am 21, female, vegetarian, 170cm and weigh 58.2 kgs. I used to be fit at 53 kgs when I suddenly gained weight due to stress and anxiety and also developed hypoglycemia (which is gone now). I weighed 63.4 kgs in July 2015. However, I started really watching what I eat and my activity level this year onwards. My goals for the month of March are:

1) to get my body fat % down from 23% to 21%.

2) to drink more water.

I am happy to have lost 5.2 kgs. I have already given up refined and added sugars of all sorts. The source of fructose I have now is mainly fruits. I have my mid-term exams going on after which I also plan to go for running in the morning three days a week and workout at home the other 3 days. I will most probably keep Monday as the rest day.

P.S.: Can I get any apt badge?

Hi and welcome, Ivy :)

Well done for already losing 5.2kg, you're doing brilliantly! That badge looks great on you :)

Take a look at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread, then move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you :)

Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news :)

Take a look at the 12 week plan, as a lot of people have been successful with it, making sure to enter your details into the BMI calculator, to get a calorie allowance tailored to your personal requirements. Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate :)

We run daily weigh-in's and you'd be very welcome to join us. The threads can always be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page, bottom on a mobile.

We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too :)

It's only left for me to wish you well on your journey :)

Is there some algorithm which automatically assigns badges or do admins assign them on their own?
