Hello to everybody!

Hello,

I have been lurking for quite a while but I think it's time to come out of the fridge, oops, closet, and say hello to everybody :)

I've been on LL for 7 weeks this coming Sunday and I really love the program.

As all my friends are very slim, it can be psychologically difficult being the size of an aircarrier, but this forum is full of people that understand the struggle with weight and it has been incredibly helpful and inspiring.

I don't feel so lonely anymore and I really wanted to thank you all.

Dont put yourself down like that Siria, "an aircarrier" indeed. I am sure you are a beautiful person. Try to think of yourself as such.:)

So glad to welcome you to Minis, its a fantastic place, with all the online friends and support you could ever wish for!

Stick around, and you wont see yourself as an aircarrier any more!!

Hi Siria, cool name, well done on the weight loss so far.
Get out the fridge now, tut tut ........lol. I dont know fancy lurking when you could have been joining in with all the fun. Nice to see you plucked up the courage to post, keep it up as it sure helps the long days/ evenings, with people who understand what you are going through.

Hia Siria,

Like Sonkie says get posting! It realy does help to write things down and to ask for advice. You can tell everyone about your news both good and bad, maybe even do a daily diary about your LL experience.

You are half way through Development - what have you learned so far? Do you like the DVDs?:D

Hello LittleBlue, Samantha, Melissa, Sarah, Cath, Cherry, Sonia and AmandaJane,
Thank you so much for the warm welcome!
Melissa, you hit it on the nail. All diets I've tried before were very patronising and trying to teach me how to eat well.. What the heck, I do know what is good for me and what isn't. That didn't stop me from doing the wrong thing, though, as my frame of mind was all wrong.
What attracted me to LL was the opportunity to take food out of the equation whilst trying to deal with the psychological reasons for my binges. It just makes sense, doesn't it?
Sarah, I'll try not to think about myself as an air carrier.. how about just as a bus then? :)
AmandaJane, I'm just at the beginning but I've already discovered how so many of my destructive food fixations were established when I was a child, which isn't surprising given the difficult family I have.
Oh, well, it's time to leave their nastiness behind and start my own life. About time too, I'm almost 38!

That's so right, Siria. That was my reasoning too.
