Hello to you all. I have been lurkin' for a while and decided to take the bull by the horns - so to speak.

As a regular dieter for years, I'm at that stage where I am totally fed-up with myself:cry: and feel the time is right to start my diet for life. So I have made a pact with myself to get on and shift the weight.

After work today I'm going to go shopping, get all the food stuff I need and start today :eek:instead of Monday.

I have joined this forum in the hope of gaining support over the coming year - there's a lot of weight to shift, which I plan to do by myself rather than going to class.

I look forward to getting to know you all and hopefully offering support to others too.

Sam

Hi Sam

I'm doing my own diet really, based on an old ww one which I have had good results with previously.

I plan to exercise too, which is something which I have never really done, so it will hopefully boost the loss.

I have to say I'm more worried about the exercise bit than the diet itself!

Errm - no to both, the most I do is walk. So I guess I just have to do more of that:(

Yes walking is still good , i have not been on my bike for almost a year now , i think you have to really push yourself cos its just the thought of it that scares you , i think once you do it thats half the battle !

I've ordered a pedometer which will hopefully arrive quickly:)

It's not that exercise scares me, I just don't like it. I'm hoping that will change over the coming months.

Hello and welcome to the site, I am starting my diet journey this week and am just going to continue, for now, my gentle exercise program and I think the best way is to walk, I just plumb in my headphones and who cares if I look like a total dingbat humming away to myself, the time flys and you get fit.

Good luck on your journey and keep us posted
