Hello there, my name is Ruth and i hpe to get to know you all. I am 30 Years old and 14 stone and very unhappy about it. I have been up and down in weight since my early twentys though i seem to have stuck at 14 stone, i saw your board and instantly felt that this could be the place for me. I would like to loose 5 stone but i am taking it two stone at a time. I promised myself in January that i would have hit my fisrt target of the first 2 stone by my hoilday in July and guess what, i am still the same weight now as i was then, i seem to be working my backside off in the gym just to maintain my weight. I have six weeks to my hoilday in Florida, i feel such a failure. i have had enough and i am goning to work my backside off and account for every little thing that passes my lips. I am sorry if i have bored you all silly. Good luck to you all.
