    Just wanted to introduce myself as a new weight loss buddy on these forums! I've been reading all your posts on and off for the last few months and got a lot from seeing that there are others like me fighting the good fight!

    I'm a teacher by profession but 3 years ago I was diagnosed with ME. I had to give up work and spent at least 20 hours a day in bed. As you can imagine I put on a lot of weight during that time and I was hardly skinny to begin with! The last 12 months have seen my symptoms improve dramatically, and although I still have to be careful not to over do it, I'm getting my life back.

    I started being more aware of my diet and exercising gently 8 months ago. My starting weight was just over 18 stone and I am currently 13 stone 9. My goal is to hit 12 stone/ 11.5 in the next 6 months.

    Glad to be here and have some company on the journey to get rid of those last few stubborn stones. :p

    Hi and welcome. I am an ex-teacher who had to give up teaching through illness. Try and see this as a new chapter in your life. Good luck
