    Hi folks. Never been on a forum like this, but hoping spending time reading things from like-minded people will spur me on to do the things I want to do.

    I want to lose around 6 stone (possibly more) but for now I feel that's a realistic target.

    I guess I know where my weight got out of control. I've always had a good appetite, but was always quite an active girl. Played football for my county, was a black belt in taekwondo and then I hit 15/16 and discovered going out and drinking and I think that's where it all went down hill.

    I don't eat alot, but I definetly eat the wrong things. I have a limited diet, which I'm hoping I can learn to change with the help of the advice on here.

    New Year, New Start! Tomorrow is DAY 1!

    Cheers guys
    M

    Hi and welcome Mafen!

    I know that it seems like a mountain to climb but I had about 10stone to lose and I'm down 3 1/2.

    You gotta make the changes - diet and exercise - and make them stick. It's not easy but just focus on how you're going to feel 6st lighter!! :)
