    Hi everyone

    My Name is Dawn and as it says it the title im new here :) I have been wanting to join this site for a while, but i never had a courage to publicly expose my actual weight :eek: ive been in denial for many years. Telling myself i was ok at the size i am. Telling myself that because i was tall i could carry it off.

    Until i seen a picture of myself beside a friend and that was it, a week ago i started a diet. Ive been overweight my whole life. Tried everything from weightwatchers to laser treatment. 4 years ago i lost 6 stone then i fell pregnant and put it all on again. So really im here for help from people like myself and hopefully maybe offer some support to others.

    thanks for listening :)

    Dawn xx

    Hi Dawn and welcome to the forum. I've only been here just over a week (I did visit to read quite a few times a few days before signing up too) but I've been reading through so many threads (not always posting) and it's been such a help and given me motivation to get going on my journey to finally get rid of all the weight I've gained over the past 4 years. Everyone is so helpful and reading all the success stories is sooo good.

    Well done on losing 7 lbs in your first week!

    Welcome to the site - how have you been finding the diet so far? People are right in that noone will judge you on your size here, we're all in the same boat of wanting to lose weight so we all understand the emotions, everyone's really supportive x
