    Hi everyone :p

    My name is Torsie and I'm from Surrey.

    I lost 3 stone last year on WW but gained it all over the winter when I had to have emergency surgery which left me unable to excercise for 3 months and feeling sorry for myself so I went back to eating loads of junk like before I started on WW.

    I have tried to go back on WW but just can't find the motivation, so this week I am joining SW as I have read so many great things about the plans and I know that I will do well with a new healthy eating method to learn all about.

    I have also started the Couch to 5k running programme and have jsut done session 2, which I am enjoying (although I don't feel like it during the runs, lol)

    I can't wait to get back in shape, as I'm getting married in 18 months and want to buy my dress in the spring, in a size 12, which is a couple of stone away from me at the moment!

    Thanks for such fast, and warm welcomes! :)

    I am joining the class this Thursday and really can't wait to get back on the healthy wagon! (Although I go on holiday in 5 weeks so tere will be a 2 week break, but we'll be doing a lot of walking and I know I won't want to eat a lot in the heat so hopefully I'll only gain 1 or 2 lb.)

    But it'd be great for my clothes to be a little looser by then! :)

    I was just brave and weighed myself for the first time in months and I was actually half a stone less than I was expecting, phew!!!

    Off to update my information, make a signature and possibly start a journal. :) I know that keeping track of my journey will really help to motivate me more. :)

    Hi Vixxster! :) How exciting to see we have such similar amounts to lose! :) You can definitely link to my blog once it's all started.

    I really should go have a bath but something tells me I might forego it for a quick shower so I can stick around on this forum longer, lol!
