hi... new on here

this is my first day on the forums, and im not actually sure if i'll be posting correctly but here we go:

My name is Mena :wave_cry: im 5'6" and 22. I've always been the same size as my age and im sick of it. My weight really sky rocketed when i was 18. I moved from California with my parents to the cold pastures of North England. I felt iscolated and depressed so i started to comfort eat.

I met a boy, moved away from my parents, stayed with the boy, relationship with boy went sour, STILL stayed with the boy, STILL comfort eating, became even more horribly depressed to the point of needing medical help.
Fast forward 3 years and im with NEW boy, in love with boy, happy-ish with job, seeing parents more regularly, but now i'm eating out of habit than hunger.

i dont know what i USED to be in weight but i know i was a size 14, now im a 22. weighing in a hefty 17ST. Im not exactly financially stable enough to go to slimming world meeting but i've got the books and are starting from scratch at home with my boyfriend.

Im really looking for tips, help, suggestions, and support. I hope im looking in the right place :eek:
