Hello everyone!

My name is Elaine. I'm 43 and live in North Hampshire in the UK. I'm married with two teenage sons, work full-time and have a good 7 stone to lose....how horrific! I'm in shock that I could have allowed my weight to have got so out of control.

I joined Weight Watchers 2.5 weeks ago and have already lost 9.5lbs which is incredible. I found this site via a link from WW.

It looks a great site and it seems to be such a great community of like minded people.

I am determined to lose a lot of weight in 2009....I've got it in mind that I would really like to lose the whole 7 stone by Dec 2009 but with my realistic head on, I'm hoping to lose 7lbs every month.

I hope to make some good friends on this site.

Elaine xx
