    Hi Everyone I hope you are all well. I have decided to join this forum as I really want to get serious about weight loss. I am 22 years old, I currently weigh in at 252lbs and my target is to be at around my ideal weight of 154lbs by the end of the year. I know it is ambitious however my main motivation is Christmas. Every year we have a big family get together and every year I keep getting the same sideways comments about getting bigger and all the worried looks when I decide to go for that extra mince pie! I have always been overweight but I have reached a point now where it is affecting my health and self esteem. It's nice to find some like minded people. Cheers guys and gals.

    Hi Jim

    I just joined yesterday and am starting on the new me challenge tomorrow. Following my own healthy eating and exercise plan.

    I have so much to lose, but this time I AM determined for my health.

    A christmas goal sounds good to me. Hopefully this year I won't be mistaken for an extra large xmas pudding at the end of the table :eek:...I'd much rather be a christmas cracker this year. ;)

    I'll be visiting the Wemitts section on here daily, as this time I truly do mean it! Maybe see you there?

    Good luck :D

    Thanks so much for the greeting.

    I have decided to go off my own back aswell RainbowRose. I know people who have tried slimming world and the like and have initial lost a fair amount of weight however when they have achieved their ideal weight have gone back to their old ways.

    As a lot of people say it isn't the initial losing that is hard it's maintaining your weight that is difficult.

    Congratulations on the 9lbs loss Ella_mentry! I hope we can keep spurring each other on!

    much love
