    Hi,

    I'm Amelia, 23 years old from Glasgow. I am a single mum to my daughter, Courtney, who is nearly 4 years old. I work full time while Courtney is at nursery full time.

    I have decided that it is time for me to try and lose some weight as my weight has slowly crept up and up since I stopped smoking over a year ago now.

    I was around 10st 5lbs about a year ago (size 12) and then when I quit smoking I am now up to 13st 4lbs (size 16/18) (mainly 18s now).

    I started to do the Tesco diet on Tuesday and currently weigh in at 185lbs. It is really hard cutting out the bad habits, eg chocolate and biscuits. I have done okay right enough, but it has only been three days.

    Anyway I think that should be enough to introduce myself a bit.

    Thanks for reading.

    Amelia

    Hey Amelia, welcome to minis.

    The first few days of a diet are always tough :(

    Good luck with your weight loss journey.

    Hi Amelia, well done on giving up smoking! MiniMins is great, you'll find lots of support and help, especially when you're doing it on your own and not going to a class, as I am. Best of luck! :)

    Hi Suz1506,

    Thanks. Quitting smoking was actually quite easy for me even though I had smoked since I was 14/15. I feel healthier in one way but with the weight piling on I don't now.

    Thanks again
