    Hey everyone!

    My name is Sarah and I am new to the site although I have been sneakily reading all your hints and tips for a few weeks now.

    I started WW on 20th April and so far it seems to be going okay. I have always been on the big side but hopefully that is all about to change, with time of course :).

    I am generally a very happy and bubbly kind of person and I think that losing this extra weight can only make things better for me. I feel like my life is just beginning (i'm 22 and just graduated) and I don't want anything to hold me back.

    I am currently following the WW programme at home but have bought some of the books and should be getting my pedometer any day now. (I'm looking forward to joining the pedometer challenge) My boyfriend's mum and two sisters in law are also following WW so I'm very lucky that I have a lot of people looking out for me.

    I have often been on diets over the years but this is the most positive I have ever felt so the key seems to be, as ever, to keep my motivation high. You guys all seem like great people and the help and support you give each other it just awesome.

    So my aim is to lose weight, get healthier, be the support for others, be supported in return and hopefully make some friends along the way!!

    Thanks for reading and hopefully see you around the forum.

    *Saski* :) xXxXx

    P.S If anyone could tell me how I can put a tracker on my profile and generally make it a bit more exciting that'd be wicked! Cheers m'dears

    Hi Saski

    Welcome to the forum. You will find loads of support here!

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think you have to have a few more posts before you can jazz up your post. But have a try anyway. To get a tracker, just click on someone else's to get the link to a tracker site, and fill in your details. The website will give you some http to post into forums, just chuck that on your tracker. (Hmm actually I think there's probably a more comprehensive guide on the tech support forum ... yep there is it's here: Tutorials - MiniMins.com - Weight Loss Support Forum)

    Anyway - good luck with WW, it's so much easier when people around you are doing the same diet!

    I look forward to reading about your losses!

    Hey RecoveringChocoholic,

    Thank you very much! Good luck to you too! Tehe I was exactly the same with the books but now I seem to be a walking book. I'm sure I must talk about the points value for things in my sleep these days :).

    How you finding your points so far, as you've just started?

    Once you get into it you'll be flying. Keep me up to date with how you get on!

    Hey bear, mommyb and less rotund one,

    Thank you so much for your kind wishes and encouragement I can definitely see me making a lot of good friends on this site.

    Bear I am very likely to ask many stupid questions over the next few months so I'm glad to meet someone who will encourage me to do so. It looks like we have a similar amount of weight to lose as well so it'll be really good to help keep each other on track :)

    MommyB are you off anywhere nice for the weekend? I hope you have a lovely time. I have no doubt i will be very addicted to the site soon just like you :)

    I may definitely need that kick from time to time so I will take you up on that Rosie! :p

    Thank you again ladies.

    Talk to you soon. x x

    hey Saski - i know its late, i was certain i had written in here already but seems i havent - how rude of me i am very sorry about that! :p

    well done on your 11lbs so far - thats really good :) why don't you join some of us (me, bear, GD, chelle) in our 1st weightloss race while you wait to join a team? :) we have a couple of weeks on you, but don't worry - look at my ticker.. you would still have an advantage over me :D (why i am grinning i dont know, but gotta be positive about these things! :D) xxx

    Hey blackwidow thanks for your post! Better late than never :p tehe.

    No seriously thank you for your support. I would love to join your challenge will the other girlies if that’s okay? Where do I sign up? If you have a couple of weeks on me, like you say, that will just mean I have to work that little bit harder :D. Well done on your weight loss so far that’s fab. I can’t wait till I start to see those sorts of numbers. I’m already fairly addicted to minimins and was really pleased I got some rep feedback earlier. Yay! So I think I am settling in for the long haul. :D

    Hope you have a lovely weekend (although I will clearly be on here tomorrow as well so maybe talk to you then :) )

    Ok i will get on to setting up a ticker now. Yep you are absolutely right my WI day is Monday. Maybe a thread would be a good idea. I don't think I have met/ spoken to everyone on the challenge yet. Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition m'dear :D xx

    I think it is 50 posts for more signature space.

    If you look in Intrductions there is a sticky which is a guide to the sir. Worth a read.

    Well done on thelosses
