Hello ... excuse my username but..

Options
I was looking for a username and everything i typed in was taken, so as a joke i wrote something similar i'd seen on a bus last week which was 'ben farten' .. not wanting to copy i put 'dunfarten' ..and wouldn't ya know it the site accepted it, i went back to change it but can't, so dunfarten it is ..it has everyone is my household laughing anyhow :happy:

I'm wendy .. 48 ..married, 2 teenagers, 2 cats and a dog .. i live in NZ.
need to loose weight and wanted to do it sensibly, i did have a go at the dukan diet but its not something that is really doable for me , so i was pointed in this direction ...

So here's hoping , which in hindsight would have been a better username BUT was probably already taken!:wink:

    You can go to settings and change your username but your only allowed to do it ONCE.
    So if your gonna change it make sure its something you wanna stick with.

    I think you should keep your name the way it is tho.
    Obvioulsy very unique. Lol.

    Good luck on your journey.
    Feel free to add me if you like. :o)

    Thats just fine!!! This will help you. Just don't workout too hard all in one day or you will burn out! Say a prayer to Jesus and he will help you lose weight...He loves you so much.

    I like the user name, not sure how long you need to wait but you somewhere down the line can change the user name if you still want to. Welcome and good luck on your journey. Find a support system on here with your like goals is my suggestion.

    I am glad you are done farting around. That's what got me started. I'm across the ditch and up the road in Brisbane, QLD. I've made heaps of progress.
