    Doing my own thing
    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

    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!

    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
