Hi, I dont know exactly how much weight i need to lose, but i think i could join this thread at least twice! I am the fattest person i know, I have friends who have joined clubs etc to help them lose maybe a stone or two, and i always think that wouldnt even be noticed on me..when a healthy weight is so far away it just seems impossible, but the stories here of how well you have all done make me think that maybe i can do it after all..so i'd like to join the century club please. i dont want to 'go on a diet' i want to change my whole lifestyle. my first goal is to actually register on the scales but i dont want my life to revolve around the scales..does that make sense? i'd like my goals to be things like 'walking my son to school'; 'wearing that outfit' etc Anyway, here goes the first steps on the journey to a new me. thank you all for being here, i have a feeling i'm going to need you!
