    Hello All! Just wanted to introduce myself. Came across this fantastic site today and signed myself up as soon as I saw what a lovely supportive group you seem to be :)

    Ummm a bit about me... I'm 35, a Yank living in the UK (Kent) for the last 7 years. I live with my (British) boyfriend and we have no children. When I moved to the UK back in 2001, I realised just how fat I had become in comparison to so many skinnies in this country and realised I had to do something. I went on WW and lost 3 stone and while I wasn't by any means waif-like, I was pretty okay with how I looked. I maintained that loss for about 5 years but somehow lost my way and have gained almost all of it back in the last year and a half! :break_diet: I'm gutted and feeling rather down about it.

    About a week and a half ago, I decided enough was enough and I'm back on track again, this time calorie-counting (using Food Focus) and lots of walking. I feel really positive, really motivated and know I can repeat my previous performance :) I'm already down 5 lbs (which I realise is probably water weight but hey I'll take it!)

    Hopefully I can add to your already lovely gang of 'losers' :p and get some support as well as give. Really looking forward to getting to know all of you!

    Hi Porgeous, you really should be changing that 'P' to a 'G' - wow, don't you look fantastic! So inspirational :) Thank you for your kind words!

    Hi IreneH, Food Focus is a free online calorie counter (Food Focus - Permanent Weight Loss). Just a tool I'm using to track my food, exercise and progress. Hopefully it'll also keep me on track :) Thanks for your reply xxx

    Hi there! I just joined too. It's such and active and happy site! Well done to you for you sound like you are going great guns.
    Thanks for mentioning the Food focus site - I just checked it out and signed up. ;) I think the visuals are very motivating. Although they sure make you work hard to lose a pound through exercise, which is my main weapon of attck at the moment - puts it into perspective. :eek: lol. Still, its all good..... I fee like you, it's time to shift it! Look forward to hearing of your continued success. :)
