    Hi All,

    For the last couple of days I've been reading threads on this site and I must say, It's impressive! I think it's great how you all help each other against, in my case, the battle of the belly!

    I'm 5'6, 23 stone and I think finally, enough is enough! I've yo-yo'd all my life. At the age of 2 I was 2 stone, 3 - 3 stone, 12 - 12 stone, 16 - 16 stone and i'm 30 now and 23 stone! I really need to get a grip because like everyone, it's really getting me down. Low self esteem, lack of confidence, lack of energy, shy, get embarassed easy, self conscious and that's all I need to do is get cracking! I don't know if anyone else is the same but I feel soooo much happier on a diet I have no idea why I don't stick to one!
    So anyway, I'm going to be popping on this site very often because I think it's fab! Hopefully, share some weight loss with all of you... well done, loads of you have done amazingly well.
    As my boyfriend says to me 'chins up' and be happy.
    Tracey

    Hi and welcome. I started at 20 st 9 lb and so know what it is like to have a lot to lose. I can't see the whole picture yet scary but am breaking it into manageable chunks of 7 lb. Have now lost 22 lb. And I'm taking this one day at a time.

    have you thought about how you are going to lose the pounds? We have many successes onhere with lots of different diets

    Good luck

    Irene xx

    Thanks for the welcome...
    That's an impressive pic porgeous... WAW well done!

    I'm thinking of doing the Weight Watchers diet, i've been looking through and I think it's by far the easiest as long as you're kinda prepared. I'm hoping to throw as much exercise in as I can, so hopefully that'll get me even more motivated, but this site is really good for advice, tips and just generally reading what others have to say is motivation in itself x

    Thanks all...

    well, when coming on here I was going to do the WW diet, but.. i've now got an appt with the CDC on friday. I am soooooooo up for this diet! Can't wait to get started, the sooner the better! :) It's been so inspiring reading this forum that i've been raving about it to lots of people. I just hope I get as much success as everyone else doing the CD. I know it's a psychological thing, but not allowed to have ANY food will suit me. Either all or nothing lol so, this IS going to work :D
