    Hi, having been one of those fortunate few who could eat what they liked and never gain weight, it was a shock to my system when I hit 40 and it was no longer true!!!

    In the past 18 months I have gained nearly 2stones and I don't have the discipline or knowhow on how to diet, as I've never had to watch what I eat.

    It is a daily struggle and with every pound gained I lose a little bit more confidence and become that little bit more depressed.

    Having been tiny all me life (a size 6) everyone around me thinks I'm a healthy weight so I don't get any support or encouragement from friends and family. But for my build and frame, healthy is about 8st 3lbs, I'm sitting at 9st 11lbs.

    I hope this forum will give me the support and encouragement I so desperately need to lose weight and get healthy again.
