    Hey all, I only just managed to find the introductions bit, so here's my hello hehe.

    I'm Ellie, from the 'lovely' city called Peterborough and I joined SW at the end of July this year.
    I've spent many years battling my weight, but joining SW was the first big (and public) step I've taken to help me lose the weight for good. I've only been a member for a few months and I've lost jsut under a stone and a half, but already I've had my ups and downs, I'm currently struggling to stay on track, but I'm hoping that joining this forum and reading about all the success stories and advice will help give me the motivation I need, and I will try to help others in return :)

    Here's a picture so you all know the face behind the computer lol.

    Hello
    I'm new too, started SW almost 2 weeks ago, had my 1st weigh in on Monday and lost 4 1/2lbs! Was so pleased, especially as I'd still managed to have a couple of glasses of wine at the weekend!
    Finding this site really helpful and it's lovely hearing real people's stories and achievements!

    Hi Ellie and welcome to the forum! I am on SW too and think it's great! This is definitely the best place for support, people are extremely helpful and reading other people's stories is really motivating.

    Ooh Hannah, you're a consultant? You'll be getting lots of questions from me now! Lol..

    Thank you :) My starting weight was 17.7 and a half stone, I'm currently at 16.1 and I'm hoping to eventually get down to about 11stone methinks.

    Aww thank you hun! <3 I really think you should tell people, the support is great and you're doing so well already so you should show off!! Love you too xx

    Welcome to you too :) Congrats on such a big first loss x

    Thank you :) Yeah it really is a great place for support, especially considering I spend most of my time on the internet really :p

    Welcome Ellie - joined this forum last week. First weigh in last Monday on SW and lost 10lbs ! Delighted but worried that second week may be a disappointment even though I have been good. You will find lots of support here and it's good to know you are not alone. By the way I'm a bloke so even more embarrassing to go to SW when you are the only man there but I've brushed it aside and doing it for me. I genuinely want to do this and this app is brilliant - just wish I could get a avatar sorted as I'm sure I've done 50 posts
