    Hello!

    I signed up to the forums yesterday and had a good read around, and thought that this seemed like a very friendly and knowledgeable community, so I wanted to post and say hello!

    A little bit about me, I'm a woman in my mid-twenties and I'm (hopefully!) nearing the end of my weight loss. I've lost about 5 stone in total so far (I was a size 18/20, now I'm a 12, yay!), and I have 1 more stone to lose. I'm a dedicated calorie counter and food diarist, but now that I'm closer to my goal, and a "healthy" weight for my height (according to the BMI, anyway...!), I'm finding it a lot tougher to shift the final few pounds. I think I just enjoy cooking and eating too much to do anything really restrictive, so I'm prepared for slow but steady losses!

    I've been around my current weight for around six months, as I've not really been trying too hard to lose for much of that time, and I'm hoping that by joining in with a friendly discussion forum, I'll keep focused and motivated, and hopefully find it easier to lose that pesky final stone!

    I look forward to reading and chatting with you all - I had a look at the inspiration slide show, and was seriously impressed - absolutely amazing!
