    Hey guys!
    Am new here, just thought I would post a little bit about myself!
    Have been so unhappy with my weight for a while now, have been on various diets and always given up. It has really hit me now how unhappy I am so have decided to really watch what I eat. I have about 2 stone that I would like to lose. Im not counting all calories but am making much healthier choices and am checking calorie content of things. Im hoping to get some ideas for things to eat that are low cal and make some new friends! :)

    I am kinda excited - more nervous at the mo though!!

    I'm going to study Primary Education and ICT.

    Thanks - don't know about any tips - I have gone slightly off track recently! Although, I have found Minimins to be so useful, for advice, support and just picking up tips from reading everyone elses diaries.

    Wish I had a great diet I could tell you about but I basically live off the same things everyday - but I'm sticking with it til it stops working!!

    :)

    Where abouts are you going to Uni? And to study what?

    I'm 23 so feel I will be older than a lot of students, even though I am still young!!

    Yess its awesome to find people the same age and also at uni too! I still live at home but its the drinking and snacking that gets me. I always drink vodka so its not a problem for me drinking vodka and diet coke or something but just stay away from the beer and alcho pops, but there are those low cal/low sugar bacardi breezers these days and low cal beer too i think!

    I am going into second year in a few weeks and i study english literature :) Good luck girls for startting uni!
