Hi Charlie, welcome

I've got my first weigh in tonight and am quite excited. I've told most people about LL, all seem to be supportive ! Good luck on your journey:D

Hi charlie and welcome :)

I told my housemate (she'd have wondered what the hell was going on otherwise!) and have told my mum too for some support. Havent told any colleagues yet as it's early days and don't want to publicise it - guess that's just me being paranoid I will fail again!

Congrats on your new baby by the way xx

Welcome Charlie

Didn't keep it a secret, but did keep it low profile for the first few stone until I was confident I'd be successful.

Everyone knew I was doing it! Couldn't give up then in the first few days because I'd have to be accountable!

As you know, this plan really works and has been my miracle over the past five months - I'm still astounded daily that I weigh 6 stone less, and I hope that feeling of awe continues for ever - not least because that will mean I'm a successful weight holder!

Good luck and once the first week is over, things just get better and better!

I'm the same as PS, told absolutely everyone I was doing it from the very start - even people at work who are virtual strangers :D
Like PS too, I think it was to be accountable, if I gave up, I would have to admit it to just about everyone I've ever met! On the plus side of everyone knowing, it makes them more aware of you changing, so you get lots of compliments - I know coz I got some at work today, and it's made me feel FAB!!! :D

Yeah i know where your coming from admitting your a failure if you quit. Another reason why im not telling anyone is the negativity......"its not healthy" blah blah blah......
Im going to hide it for now and see what happens. Another thing is that my sister is a dietition so dead against stuff like this!!
But its not really healthy being 4 stone plus over weight is it!! :p:p:p
