    Well hello to all!

    Here is a little bit of background:

    I was a bit of a gym nut until I was 22, when I was told to cut back on my regime as the doctors felt I was putting my body under stress (my periods had stopped). However, at 24 they realised it was something else and stuck my on a treatment that made me gain weight. I gained 2st 10lb in 12 months and gained 3 dress sizes. I lost a lot of my drive and motivation and developed bad eating habits I had never had before.

    I am 26 now and off the treatment, and want to get back to being the old me as I feel unhappy with my current body and have lost a lot of confidence. But I know that with some hard work and dedication I can do anything, so I am feeling optimistic.

    I joined Slimming World a short time ago and was doing well until the nigths of the classes were taken over with something else. As it happens, a gained 7lbs of the stone I lost. But I have joined another group closer to home and started back 2 weeks ago.

    So far I have lost 11 lbs in total (between starting and starting and taking into account the gain between). I even got Slimmer of the Week this week! But because these things have their trying moments, I am here to get and give (I hope) support.

    So here I am :)

    Looking forwards to meeting you all.
