Hi, :wave_cry: Although there is usually someone there for support and advice about litterally anything on Minimins, I think it would be nice for those of us who are not really on a 'diet' as such but have changed their lifestyle and/or are Healthy eating to have somewhere we can also share posts together, our experiences, advice, menu's, exercise etc... My story is that back in June I decided to go and see a Hypnotherapist, in a last ditch attempt to lose weight before embarking on weight loss surgery. I had been on 'diets' before like many others on here, lost with some, not with others but along with having 2 children in between I always put the weight back on. :cry: I had 2 sessions with her, she gave me a few really helpful tips, and i've been going great gun's ever since. My aim is to lose 7lb a month, I started the gym about a month ago, and I really feel I have managed to litterally change my lifestyle, therefore losing weight, and most importantly of all for me, in a sustainable way. I would also like to know if there are any others near my neck of the woods, interested in meeting up occasionally, maybe going for a walk/run and share advice?! :flirt2: So, anyone else doing the same as me?
