    Hello,
    I thought it was time that I introduced myself. My name is Wendy and I have a very long way to go to become the smaller person that I know is inside me just wanting to get out.

    I have been dieting since March 2011 when my husband won a competition for a holiday in Cuba. We have ended up going to the Dominican Republic instead but thats another story.

    I know I will not be anywhere near slim by the time we go in October but I will be smaller than I was before.

    I have always been on the big size at 18 when I got married I was a size 18 and weighed just under 12st. 3 wonderful children and 29 years later I was 25st 8lb.

    My sister had been to slimming world and lost 3st but a slimming group was not for me. However she did lend me her books and I followed the easy plan then when I was seeing the results she asked for her books back. I was not going to give up and I decided that I would go and join a local group so I could carry on. I joined 6 weeks ago and I am glad I did. Now the weight loss is mine to control.
    Since March I have lost 4st 9lb.

    I found MiniMins some time back and have been looking at it to get inspiration when I've needed it but now I want to be more of a part of it.

    You have shown me that it can be done and that it is down to me to do it. I know that it will not be an over night thing it's a long term fight to get the weight off and a life time of control to keep it off, but I am going to do it.

    So that's enough about me. I'd just like to say Thank you for just being here and the support you all give.
