Hi from a newbie...

Hi everyone, I'm wharfie. I'm 25, about 21 stone and need to lose weight as I have come to the realisation that it is making me very unhappy and I don't feel like me! I work full time and am also currently studying my postgraduate diploma at uni on a part time basis. I'm married with no children but we would really like to start a family once I finish this year at uni. I'm worried that if I don't lose weight I will become unhappier and won't be able to conceive or have a healthy pregnancy. I haven't decided on which diet path to take as yet and would like to join a gym but I am a bit lacking in confidence! I am hoping I will increase my willpower, make some friends and lose the weight! :eek:

Hi and welcome. About how many stones would you like to lose? Are you thinking of a VLCD or a diet that involves eating? Have a look at some of the websites and some of the details about the diets on here.
