Hiya and welcome to my Exante diary A bit about myself and how I ended up with my weight issue... Well I moved out at 15 and up to then I'd never had a problem with food or my weight, I think where I had the choice to make my meals and I had to do everything for myself I relied on junk food. I then got pregnant at 17 and obviously put on a lot more weight and just didn't lose it.. Kept eating loads and piling on more weight, and here I am, 23, 18st4lb and at only 5ft, morbidly obese I come across this site and thought I'd give exante a go as a last resort as nothing else seems to work for me, as I feel I need to come away from food to be able to change my relationship with it to stop future weight gain. For my height, my ideal weight should be between 7 and 9 stone according to the NHS website, so I've set my goal at 8 stone I have a long journey of 10 stone to go, but I will make it work this time, I want to be able to run around with my daughter without becoming breathless or being constantly aware how big I am, so I'm feeling very positive this time - The Last Time I haven't started Exante yet, my delivery is coming on Monday and I will be starting also on Monday. I've been reading through many other threads on exante and it looks like a very successful way to lose weight Id be grateful for any advice or support, and will update on Monday - Day One Of The New Me!!
