Hey everyone, I'm Gemma, very new to the site.. (Should have joined a long time ago before I let my weight get out of control the way it has done!) just reading through everyone's posts has given me motivation to make some big changes to my lifestyle..

I weigh 18st 4lb at the moment and am hoping to get to about 10st in the long run.. I know it's going to take quite a long time, but as long as I keep it off Ill be happy :)

I've decided to try calorie counting as I think it will be best to maintain once I've reached my goal :).

Im going to start tomorrow and will keep you updated, meanwhile if anyone has any hints/tips on calorie counting, I'd be greatful..

Gem xx

Thankyou :) one thing I've seen on here is that some people have a heart rate monitor.. Was wondering if it was worth getting one? Xx

Well first two days have gone quite well... Stuck to my 1200 calorie limit.. At the moment having a slim fast shake for breakfast just to use them up, but they have quite a lot of sugar in :-/

Drinking lots of water to keep me topped up between meals :)

I think I'll start exercising next week as have quite a lot of work on over the weekend :)

Feeling very positive at the moment.. Hoping it lasts for a slimmer me :) xx

Hello Gem,

hope you are still getting on ok. I have the same calorie intake goal as you and some days I am finding it hard to make up the whole 1200. Gonna up the fruit intake from now on I think!
Exercising really does help...even just a little! This past week I have been on the kinect playing Dance Central for half an hour every day and I feel it is making a huge difference :)

Haven't been on here much this week as my eatin has been awful :-/ been feeling rubbish (possibly totm..) but have weighed myself this morning and it looks like I've lost 2lb :) don't know how but I'm not complaining... It's given me the boost I needed I think... Going to try harder this week :) xx
