    Hi Everyone,

    I'm 22 and a foodaholic! I love cooking and eating!

    Eating is the reason why I'm here, I use it as a tool to cope with my manic depression. There I said it.... for years I brushed my illness under the rug and said to everyone else and myself that I was a fine, perfectly rounded, young individual.

    When really I needed help... I stuffed food in my face to mash down what was going on in my head, which made my waistline expand and didn't solve how I felt, so now I'm having to deal with 2 problems instead of the 1.

    I have insomnia hence why I'm up and posting at 1 am and the list goes on.... so generally I'm a pretty messed up cookie, but unless I sort my life out no one else will do it for me.

    So I'm here, I'm me and I'm ready to sort myself out!

    There are a couple of little things that I want to do alongside losing weight which tie in so I think its time I stopped waffling and got to it!

    Good luck everyone!

    Little things:
    Try and eat my 5 a day
    Exercise more
    Eat slower
    Try new recipes
    Drink 2ltrs of water a day

    Hi hun!

    Well MFP (myfitnesspal) says to lose 2lb a week I need to eat 1500 as I'm a whopping 20 stone! :eek: shock horror

    This may sound silly but it almost seems to many?

    But then again I dunno cos I'm new to this!

    Hey hun Alpa posted a link on here to help work out what calories you should be having;

    Calorie Intake Calculator - Calculate Your Daily Calorie Needs For Weight Loss

    underneath it will give you the option of maintenance, weight loss and extreme weight loss, and the extreme value is the lowest i would go to for now :) ofc when the weight comes off then the calories you need will decrease as well etc but to start off 1200cals may be a bit low for you :)

    good luck and welcome btw! hope it's going well for you and if your sticking to 1200 then well done hun :) keep up good work xxx
