    Hiya! (This is where I get stuck as to what to say..)

    Well, I'm 21 and live in Gateshead - I followed Weight Watchers successfully while in college, dropping from 17.5st and a size 24 to 14.5st and a size 18 before I moved to where I live now for university. Its taken a long time for me to get remotivated (i graduated in June and my photos really spurred me to get back on the wagon), and after regaining pretty much all of the weight i worked so hard to get rid of, I know I have to start again!

    Just thought I would join here as I ran across it the other day while looking for the points values for fish and chips. I've always had problems with my friends sabotaging (not intentionally, but just because they're all incredibly fussy and unhealthy eaters which is not good as we're always out socialising!) my weight loss attempts, so I thought somewhere where I can talk to like minded people would be a good thing!

    I've been back on the diet for just under 3 weeks - I used to go to the classes but after just getting my first mortgage I'm struggling with the cash so just doing it from home for now as I know the ropes pretty well. Lost 2lbs my first week and 3lbs my second, and my next weigh in is tomorrow - set a few smaller goals for myself along the way - I always seem to get disheartened as I have such a lot to lose, so trying for firstly a stone by 9th November (next big occasion on my calendar) and 10% body weight by xmas, at which I will hit 15st 6lbs.

    Now i'm looking back, I've realised I wasnt that stuck for an introduction, haha! :D

    So.. hi :)

    Welcome to Minimins.

    All of the chat areas are great - and you don't even have to stick in the forum of the diet you are following - everyone is made welcome everywhere.

    You will find that there is not a question that has not been asked by someone at some time - and most of all, we are great at motivating each other.

    Will look out for your losses.

    LRO xx
