My first steps to weight loss...

Before I start this roller coaster of a journey, I think it would be best to introduce myself. Hello, I'm Sophia, I am a student and I love food. Although I have always been a very picky eater I have never not eaten. I wouldn't say I was a chubby child but I carried a bit if puppy fat around, definitely! I was a relatively slim teenager (despite not thinking I was) and it wasn't until about 4 years ago I started to really pile the weight on, fast.

Basically I got myself into a fantastic relationship and ever since then I have been really happy, felt really good about myself (despite being at my biggest) and haven't been paying attention to my weight or health so I gained a lot of weight in a short amount of time. I went from being around 9 1/2 - 10 stone to 13 stone in a year and a half and before I knew it I had started university. I continued to put on weight because of all the drinking, and the cheep food thats quick and easy to cook. My first year at university I was living off a diet of fruity cider, Jack Daniel's and full fat coke, supernoodles and microwave meals, so not the best diet plan. Even more weight cropped up on me and before i knew it I had but on another 2 stone in a year bringing my weight to a full 15 stone.

I know this is not the fattest anyone has ever been but I am 5ft 5" and I was not happy with my body. Thankfully in this last year I haven't gained any weight but I haven't lost any either. I have gone between 14 1/2 stone to 15 stone this last year and I really am going to do something about it this time. 

My current measurements are

Height - 5ft 5"
weight - 210 lbs. (15 Stone/ 95.25 kilo)

Tops - size 16-18 (UK)
Bottoms - size 14- 16 (UK)
(I forgot to mention I'm a Lady)
Bra - 38 DD (hopefully these won't shrink too much)

Waist - 42"
Chest - 47"
Hips - 43"
Left Thigh - 26"
Right Thigh - 27"
Left Arm  - 14"
Right Arm - 14"

So this is me, as it stands chunky and willing so shift some chub. I'm going to be doing my best and hopefully should see some results soon.

Wish me luck!!
