    Hi everyone. I have been lurking around the forum for a little while, but am yet to post so I thought that I would formally introduce myself :D

    I have been trying to lose weight on and off for about 10 years. Everytime I start a new diet, I think that this will be the time that I finally lose weight and become happy and it has never really worked.

    This year, I am getting married, so I am hoping that I can finally shed some pounds before my big day.

    I need to lose a lot of weight - probably about 7 stones. I am under no illusions that this will happen before my wedding day, but I would like to make progess before then, at least so I will look okay in the pictures....:D

    Put up some pics of dresses, honeymoon places all things associated with weddings and use these as an incentive. You could start a thread in our brides to be too.

    I am *trying* to follow WW. We will see how it goes....

    The evening is the hardest time for me. I will quite often munch on bread/toast whilst cooking my tea. I don't know why I am so greedy!

    I am just concerned as time is so short. There is no point even looking for a dress yet as I am too big.

    Hi :) Not that I've tried them myself but have you thought about a VLCD? They're definitely no "easy option" (is there any such thing?!) but they can and do produce staggering losses in a really short period of time :)

    I just had to look it up to find out what it was :) I have tried calorie counting and didn't get on very well. One of my main problems is, is that I love cheese! Being a vegetarian, it is difficult to fill myself up with a plain salad or just veg!

    Oh I feel your pain, I could eat cheese all day every day! Low-fat cheese is super-grim so I have to limit myself to cheese only once or twice a week (on a salad, or baked potato), I'd rather have lovely cheese less often then rubbish cheese every day!

    There's a whole load of VLCD forums further down the board if you wanted to have a read up on them.

    Good luck x
