    Hello,

    I'm Lauren, a soon-to-be-25 year old from South London who's on yet another weight loss journey. I'm hoping to find some support and somewhere to talk about my issues around losing weight. Most of my friends are size 10s and try as they might, they jsut don't get it!

    I've been focused for 7 weeks, so far I've lost 15lbs and I'm feeling good. I do have *a lot* of weight to lose though. I'm just taking it one day at a time so far and trying to enjoy it.....

    I've done every diet going.....

    This time I'm eating healthily and trying not to get to caught up in the whole "diet" mindset. I'm counting calories just so I can keep track of the numbers.

    Plus moving more. It's working well.

    I haven't set a target weight yet, for 2 reasons: it's too daunting (i'm concentrating on each stone) and also because I'm not sure still I get there exactly what I'll be comfortable with.

    I'm reckoning at least 90lbs though......
