    Hiya everyone,
    I need to lose 7stone 7lbs as I am killing myself . I've been a yo-yo dieter and comfort eater my whole life, and at 17st 7lbs at 34 years old and 5ft 2in , a mother of two lovely girls and a sufferer of high blood pressure I have had enough, i must take action now. I have put on a stone a year for the last ten years, and I avoid looking at myself in mirrors or having my photo taken.
    For some its drink or drugs to battle demons, for me its food.
    I cant buy the clothes I like, or do the things I used to do, ive eaten myself into a prison.
    I hope I can drop in from time to time and take strength from you all, or be there for anyone if its needed as someone who understands.

    Becky is right (as usual)... take it in small steps... I know how daunting it is to have a big target, and it really helps to have a smaller and realistic target.
    Do let us know how you get on and give us a shout if you need any help, support or encouragement. This forum is amazing for all that!
    Good luck!!!
