Hi - I have just posted in the introductions section so will just copy that brief intro here.
I'm Laura...I used to be a member of this site about 2 to 3 years ago (Lozbo) but my life took a difficult turn and my weight stopped being as much of a focus for me as it should have been.
I'm 29 and have struggled with my weight since I was about 13 and was diagnosed with PCOS at 15. This makes it more difficult to lose weight but it is not the only reason for my weight troubles.
I lost a bit of weight a few years ago and then sadly my husband became ill and passed away. During this time I really turned to food for comfort and found it hard to find the motivation to eat well or exercise. Recently I have realised that I haven't been looking after myself very well and that it needed to change and I wanted to start to enjoy my life again for myself.
I not long ago started a new relationship with someone who is very supportive and has helped me to feel that I am finally in a good place to start my weight loss journey again.
I am going to be starting with just eating healthy and exercising. I have a friend who has given me the ww points books etc so I may try this from home at some point too.
I remembered how supportive it was here last time so thought I would join again.
I will update this diary daily and, as of tomorrow, I will include a food diary.
I know I have a long way to go but I'm feeling positive about making some real changes to my lifestyle.
Thank you for reading and good luck on all of your weight loss journeys xx
