Hi everyone

#1
My name is Mandy. I'm a busy stay at home mum to 3 children. I'm also married to a wonderful man.

I've been battling with my weight for as long as I can remember. Even when I was a teenager I knew I was bigger than the other girls when I couldn't wear the same clothes as them. I'm 38 years old now and I've now reached breaking point. I am now 16st or thereabouts. I looked at a photo of myself at my daughter's birthday party 2 weeks ago and I was disgusted with what I saw. I compared it to a photo of me at her first birthday party and I was so shocked I almost cried. I have tried ww and got bored of counting points and always struggled to stay in my points allowance. My biggest downfall is that I snack - a lot! Crisps, biscuits and bread. Supper is usually a bowl of cereal. I need help and I need it now!

Hi Mandy :eek:),

Pictures can be horrible things, but its great that it encouraged you to join the forum. This is my first post, and I'm lookign forward to reporting progress. I think support here is fantastic, and it's so good to see so many success stories.

Which diet are you going to follow? I'm thinking of just limiting food intake...

Hi Mandy and welcome to the forums! I know what you mean about looking at recent and past photos! When I saw one of me recently I cried and it spurred me into action. You have made a great choice joining this website - everyone on here is lovely and really supportive.
I look forward to hearing about your weight loss success

Good luck
