Hi I am a 33yr old mum of 2. I have steadily piled on weight since having my children. But have struggled with my weight all my life. I am now 17 stone I am tired all the time and desperate to get rid of this extra weight. I have decided to go on a vlcd to get myself down to around 12/13 stone. My plan is to exercise and use a low calorie diet from there to my final goal of around 9/10 stone. I am lucky enough to have a really supportive hubby with a couple of stone to lose who is going to buddy me for at least the first. Month then help me with the exercise once he has lost what he needs to lose. I want to give myself the best possible chance of succeeding this time I know how important it is to have a good support system in place which is why I have joined this forum.
