new boy here:)

Hi there, thought I'd post in here and say hello...
I'm 37 and this time last year I weighed around 24 stone. I've always been big (read fat!) But last year I broke my leg playing American football. When they xrayed it they found severe arthritis - that was the trigger for me to do something about it. In Sept I joined slimming world and as of Monday I am 6 stone 4 lighter. Not set a Target yet, mainly because I need some size for football, and I'm not sure where to set it!!!! 3 weeks ago my wife joined sw too and this week she got her half stone award. I'll try and post regularly but I'm not very good at this sort of thing!!!!

Have you maybe thought about speaking to a football coach or indeed maybe somebody who works as a sports physio/Gym about where to set your target, I am sure if you go to a reputable gym nearby where you live they would be more than happy to hep you out.
