    Hi Everyone
    My Name is Sam and i am 24. I have been overweight since i was about 18 when i went off to Uni, got a sports injury and the weight piled on and i have been battling it ever since.
    Whats makes it harder for me now is that i now live in Turkey, and there are no Diet groups out here and i feel like i am the only one out here!! so thought i would try online for some support instead. I have bought myself a bike and i am cycling everywhere and trying to resist all this gorgeous foreign food. Sometimes being homesick doesnt help and i just want to sit infront of the TV and eat!! not good!!!
    I am looking forward to getting to know some of you on here, I am aiming to lose some weight for xmas, when i go home to Wales with my boyfriend, would like to surprise people with a new me! xxxx:p

    Welcome Sam to the forum.

    Its a great lifeline on here - support, ideas and just general chit chat.

    Sounds like you will have the perfect excuse for getting out and about and topping up your tan in Turkey - and you can have all those lovely healthy salads and stuff....

    Post your weight losses and let us know how you are doing

    LRO xx

    Can't fault it though, having a bike to ride around Turkey. Nice!!
    Good luck with losing weight by Christmas and also you're tan will be great too!! By the time you come back to Wales (i'm a Welsh gal too!) I'm sure you'll be happy with everything.

    Take it easy
