    Okay, so I've been feeling down about my weight for a while.

    The trouble is nobody seems to believe me when I say I'm overweight because I am 5ft9ins and so it stretches relatively flat, I guess.

    But it's started to bother me alot recently that new shape is forming in my face, upper arms and thighs; I know tackling target areas is near enough impossible, so I just want to lose weight and get healthier in general.

    I've researched all day long and I'm certain SW is the way forward for me - I almost joined their online thing until it asked for £60.00!!

    The main thing is I don't completely understand and I would love it if someone could direct me to a thread that declares the rules and things, or am I going to have to buy a book or something??

    I don't know my exact weight at the moment, so I'm going to start officially on Monday (gives me time to buy scales and good ingredients, etc) - last check I was like 12st 10lbs - I'd imagine I'm about 13st 10lbs now as that check was probably last August and I'm feeling much heavier than I ever have (and I was a BIG child!!)

    So yeah, I'm rambling now and have just realised I haven't told you my name - it's Michelle.

    I'm also 19 years old.

    Thanks for reading and I hope to come across many successes with you guys over the coming times.

    =) ..xxxx

    Hi and welcome. You could either to go a class and you would get the books on your first visit or buy them from ebay.

    Welcome!
    You could try asking around and see if people who have done SW before have a spare book?
    good luck!
