    Hi Guys,

    I'm new here and would just like to say 'Hi!!'..

    Well, where do i start?!!!
    I'm 24 and recently got married unfortunately all my efforts to loose weight leading up to the wedding didn't go as well as I'd hoped so I married as a size 16 and although my pictures turned out lovely i was quite disappointed with myself!

    I've since managed to loosea little more weight (not much but a dress size has fallen off)
    All i've done is cut my portion sizes and tried to eat healthily.
    This week I've started going back to the gym hoping my knee will be ok (slight injury) I hope this will make a difference.

    I've tried Rosemary Conley, and LighterLife (both not good for me!)

    I suffer really badly with IBS most affected by Wheat and Stress so that makes things a little more difficult for me.

    Since getting married my hubby and I have been having regular hospital appointments to assist fertility problems - it turns out we have to have IVF so I really want to get into the best shape possible to aid my chances of this working for us as it is our only option.

    I'm 5'6" and currently weight 12st5. At my lightest i was under 9st and heaviest I was over 14 so I'd really like to get down to around 10st as NHS say my BMI must be between 20 and 25 to continue treatment.
    I have no idea where to start or what to do now.
    Can anyone out there help me?

    Mali

    eating healtherly did work for me when i lost some weight a year ago but for me the gym is the only option now, since ive been staying at the same weight for along time, even though my bmi is ok i still feel id like to loose a few more pounds, good luck with your weight loss you may find it quite slow to come off if you dont exersise but everyone is different.

    Have you thought about a GI based diet? You automatically cut out a lot of wheat based products, especially the refined ones, and carbohydrates.
    And exercise always helps!
    Good luck for your weightloss whatever you decide!

    You could try reading Marissa Peers book - I can honestly say I have changed my eating habits forever - I personally could relate to so much of what she said - something just clicked for me - I love it :)

    Good luck whatever road you take
