    Hello and :welcome: to minis the site that is great for all your needs.
    What diet are you doing.All you need is motivation(which you seem to have) you have obviously reached a point where you have said no more.I bet you that when the weight starts to come off and you feel better in yourself you will not suffer the way you have been.
    I wish you the very best of luck.

    Hi Mark,

    Welcome to the site, there are so many supportive people on here, many of whom have been through similar themselves.
    I hope that you will find the site helpful, I know I have. It's tough going, but well worth it in the end. Both my cousin and sister had similar issues, and with the support from the site have got through it and are now in maintenance. Me? Well this is the second time round and this time I will get there too.
    The people on this site wont judge you, but will help to support you. All the very best in your journey.

    Welcome Mark from neighbouring Dorset!

    Lots if inspiration here...I started at 315 lbs and have lost 88 lbs so far... It's hard going but so rewarding! Keep coming back and posting....start a diary if you haven't already...i was a virtual recluse when I started and it's taken me a long time but I'm now cycling 11 miles a day and walking loads and always outdoors doing something! Gawd help my poor hubby when I've lost another 94 lbs!!
    I look forward to getting to know you
