Hi everyone

S: 16st0lb C: 16st0lb G: 10st7lb BMI: 37.3 Loss: 0st0lb(0%)
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 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
