Well, for those who don't know me I'm memories_child (also known as mem, Beth, B or wolfy) and my fandoms are The X Files and Californication. I figured I'd join up here because I've been saying for the last year or so that I want to lose weight and get fit, but haven't really done anything about it.

I'm 5 foot 4ish and currently the heaviest I've been (at 13 stone, which I think translates into 156lbs), although I've lost 2lbs in the last couple of weeks, and not happy about it. I've struggled with eating and self image before, and I'm back at the point where I won't let anyone take a photo of me if I can help it, so I really need to do something about it. I've found my problem isn't so much healthy eating (I have salads most days in work, though I will admit that working in an office where people keep bringing in cakes and biscuits doesn't help); it's not exercising. I'm currently living at home with my dad and have a 25 mile drive to work, so my exercise pretty much consists of walking from my door to the car. I have recently started to play badminton once a week, and am going to try to go to classes (the gym at my work runs lunchtime and after work classes), but I could definitely use some help with the old motivation thing.

Anyway in a pretty long (but not chocolate coated) nutshell, that's me. Nice to meet you all :)

ETA: 13 stone is actually 182lbs, which I'm not happy with at all!

I'm glad to see there's another person who has a tough time exercising. And you have a gym at work. LUCKY!!!

Very lucky, though it's on a different site to the one I work at which is in the opposite direction! Going to see about classes at the gym I play badminton at though =)

Yayyy you're here too!

That's mostly my problem too - not enough exercise! I eat really healthy usually, except for my addiction to sugar.

Classes are a great way to work out - you've got an instructor and other people motivating you, and usually classes are fun.

Hello honey! Nice to see people I know here =D

I'm pretty healthy at eating, although I'm not as good as I used to be. I'm going to look into classes this week.
