    Hi Everyone,
    I have just started out and am really determined to lose 2 stone in total. My son will be 2 in july so this is my target although I think 2 stone is a little to much in such a short space.

    I am looking to chat to other people and SW members about recipes and life in general. :)

    Hi Mate

    Welcome to SW- you seem fairly motivated already!
    I think your target is very ambitious- an average sustainable weight loss should be 1-2lbs per week. I know we all want to drop the weight quickly, but try and think about what you want long term- to keep it off! Try to go a bit easier on yourself, mate. Enjoy the journey and you are less likely to fall off the wagon.

    Please ask away if you have any questions- this forum is really supportive and helpful for all kinds of issues!

    xxxx
