    Hello all, I am new to the site had a look around yesterday - wow you are all doing so well.
    My story is i have been overweight about 12 years now nothing has really worked for me, I know what to do it's just after a few weeks if i don't see a loss i give up. Well back in April I thought enough is enough I haven't joined a slimmimg club or anything (this time). We had bought our kids a wii at easter and i saw wii fit advertised and i bought one (for those who don't know you can weigh and get your bmi measured and also exercise on it, it's really fun) all in the comfort of your own home. Anyway 26th April i stepped on to weigh myself oh my god! 18st the heaviest I have ever been, that was it, i started exercise daily - I don't eat biscuits, cakes or crisps anymore and today my weight is 16st 4 lb - more importantly my BMI was 39 when i started and it's now 35. I must say getting to 16 stone has been hard the first stone was really easy, I have been stuck between 16.5 and 16.7 for about a month now, so getting to 16.4 I thought yeh! Hopefully i'm on the way down again. Look forward to hearing from you all.

    Well done so far. You've done really well and should remember how much you've achieved so far to help you get over othe hump of no weight loss for a few weeks.

    Krazykaz - that's a fantastic start. I've got a Wii Fit too and try to get on it every day for an hour or so. I'm not following a formal plan either but am happy with the results to date.

    Keep up the good work and I'm sure more weight will drop off in no time:)

    Wow I'm trying to resist buying the Wii, but after reading your thread I'm struggling with why not buy it?

    Your an inspiration, maybe when i get my credit card back into the black, I'll buy a Wii :p
