    Hi there, Just found this forum, and looking around there seems to be a lot of support and inspiration :)

    A bit about me, Im Anna, married (sept 2008) to Damian who ive been with since 1999. We have an 8 year old son together.

    Ive always been overweight and in 2004 I joined weight watchers to tackle the problem, Damian dieted along with me as he is also overweight.
    In 9 months I managed to lose 7 stone, going from a size 26 to a 14-16.
    All of a sudden I actually felt good about myself and started going out to pubs with friends....That became my downfall, the weight slowly but surely piled back on leaving me where I am today, back at a size 26 and starting over again!

    The last few years have been a bit of a weight rollercoaster for me.... Losing all that weight put me in a funny frame of mind and I ended up being put on anti depressants, Im not sure these helped in the putting back on of all my weight!
    I finally managed to come off my anti-d's just before my wedding, now its a new year, im pushing 30, am andi-depressant free and ready to shift this weight again!!

    Sorry for the essay guys, just nice to let you all know where I stand with my weight problem.

    Look forward to speaking to you all, thanks for reading
    Anna ;)


    *dont know if I needed to change text size, but I did..so hope its not to small!*

    Don't apologise for the "essay" - i'm a naturally nosey person, so i love reading everyones info !! (and it was much shorter than mine lol)
    In the few short weeks i have been a member of this site i have found it very helpful and it has helped me get back into the right frame of mind after my "xmas weight gain"
    Have a look at some of the success stories, they are very motivational.
    You have proved you can do it before (7 stone - wow) so you you know you can do it again. Maybe with support from everyone on here you might find it easier to maintain too.
    Good luck.
    (btw - font size is fine !)

    Hi, thanks for the warm welcome, Yes I think WW is the way to go for me. I'd like to think I can follow the plan without going to meetings, am going to at least try for a couple of weeks and see how I do.
