    Hi everyone,

    Just thought i have been posting threads asking advice and have not really said anything about myself!!

    I am 21 at the end of this month and have been unhappy about my weight for a good year and a half. When i was 16/17 i was a size ten and very into my exercise then i met my OH!!

    Think you girls will know what i mean when i say once you get comfortable in a relationship you start to relax your eating habbits?? or maybe thats just me!

    It was not just being in a happy relationship though, i started to get really naughty eating load of junk and promising myself i would start being good again monday and of course never happened.!!!

    Before i knew it i was bout 2 stone bigger and although my relationship was thriving my self confidence plummeted!I have recently moved to Norfolk with my OH and am settling in well but it was a bit of a shock to begin with being away from my F&F but we both felt we needed a change and wanted to make a better future for ourselves, since moving i have become much more independant but have also turned to food for comfort on occasions of stress or when im missing my family (although i do have a sister here).

    My OH never judges me and always says i look beautiful but until i feel happy about my size i wont feel like that about myself.

    Now i am really settled in my new job and new city, happy & i feel like im ready to tackle my weight and food issues and start to feel good about myself again!!

    I have been reading though alot of your posts over the last few days and i know i am going to find your support
    invaluable!!

    I look forward to getting to know you all more!...

    1st weight watchers meeting saturday!

    thanks everyone.... your baby is gorge!!!! i just feel like if i dont do this now as im turning 21 soon i never will, just wanna be in control of my weight and not have it control me!

    Sounds sad but i cant wait for the day when i can go into a fashionable clothes store and try things on that actually looks nice and get excited like i used to!

    Always used to be "oh there was bad lighting in the changing room" or "they never do anything i like" lol...truth is i wouldnt have been happy with anything because i was/am not comfortable at the size i am at!

    For my 21st instead of prezzies i have asked f&f for either money or vouchers so that once im at my goal i can have a huge shopping spree for loadsa new clothes, cant wait its been such a long time since i went clothes shopping successfully..

    xxxx

    Thats me all over Linds, i avoid clothes shopping like the plague, I have loads of clothes in my wardrobe but i dont wear half of them cos i dont like the way they fit so they are staying put until i lose a bit more. I feel silly going into places like Topshop where i highly doubt there is anything that will fit me there and feel embarrassed that the shop assistants are thinking "why is she even bothering to go in there" when all i go in for is accessories or to accompany my sister! lol.

    Good luck with your ww journey, keep us informed of how you get on and a shopping spree sounds like the right thing to spur you on! x
