    Heya!

    Well the basics, I'm Sarah, I'm 21 (22 next weekend :candle1: ) and I'm here because like everyone else I want to lose weight!

    After putting on a huge amount of weight whilst suffering from depression I'm now trying to change my life round and get back on the right track.

    I started attending a weight loss clinic at my doctors because it was cheaper than any of the other groups like weight watchers or slimming world etc, and although we don't follow a particular set out diet like other groups it's been going really well so far! Since joining on 18th April I've lost 30lb, but I've still got a long way to go!

    I've not really set a specific goal that I'm aiming towards, but I need to loose another good 100lbs or more, which sounds like an unbelievable amount when I write it down :sigh2: BUT I'm trying to be positive about it and not let the enormity of the task ahead get me down (which whilst suffering with depression is a damn hard task lol)

    Right I think I've babbled on enough for what should have been my short introduction lol, hope to get to know some of you in the future! xXx
