    Hi everyone, Ive been on here for a bit but would like more friends please!!

    I thought Id tell you bit about myself and my weightloss journey.

    Im 31, very overweight and miserable! Done WW before and lost 21 lbs but now am much heavier! Always trying to watch what I eat and diet, but never succeed but this time I really need to and want to.

    I have a daughter who will be 2 in August and is severely disabled so I have to carry her everywhere etc so need to be a lot slimmer and fitter to do so as shes only gonna get heavier! I have also been in a bit of ill health lately with chronic fatigue syndrome and now rheumatoid arthritis, so really want to help myself. I also feel fat and ugly so would like to NOT feel this way!!

    Anyway, week 1- this is the FIRST time Ive been in the 15's and I hope that its gonna be the last! Week 2- was a little dissapointed but my TOM started the following day so Im putting it down to that! Ive been really good and am really hoping to do well this week. Id love 4.5 loss to make it my first silver seven in 2 weeks.

    Regarding these boards, do you guys have to tick or add something to give me rep power and do I have to do the same thing to others? Im a bit of a technophobe on this site, not sure how it all works yet!

    Anyway, hope to meet you all soon and share our journey together.

    Hello and welcome puddinpie! Lovely to have you on the boards. Sorry you have been having a rough time of it atm with your health problems. But you've got the right idea about helping yourself. I used to play a lot of sport and in October i cracked my hip and just mopped around for ages but then i decided to do something about it and already it is soo much better. So hopefully i will be back to sport very soon.

    With regard to reps you can give people rep but clicking on the scales in the left hand corner of blue strip on a post. Likewise they can do the same for you. :)

    If you need anything do not hesitate to give us a shout. Everyone is really friendly and will be more than happy to help you out.

    Take care and good luck x x x

    Hi there puddinpie and welcome. I'm in the same boat as you - health problems etc and have mucked about with WW and other diets - keep losing the same stone and putting it back on again, grr!!!

    I'm in the 15s as well so maybe we can support each other.

    Good luck with your weight loss journey.

    Hi thanks everyone, Ive been trying to be really good this weekend as Im hoping for my first silver seven and half a stone in 2 weeks, tomorrow.... Probably aiming a bit hight but hey! Its been difficult tho coz we had a fundraising weekend were all there was to eat was cakes and sausages this was fri and sat. Then on sat night I went out, but i made good choices and have been as good as I possibly can! Will let you all know how I get on tom night when I get back.... NERVOUS tho!

    Also if I want to keep using this thread every time, just to keep it as a diary kind of thing, then how will pple see it if theyve havent origiannly replied to it?? WIll it just reappear on the forum thingy?? (do you like my technical language?!!)

    Thanks everyone and good luck for you all this week. x
