    Hello, I'm so glad I have found this forum... I'm going to be starting 'the tablets' tomorrow and have been reading the comments which give me lots of hope and encouragement. I better introduce myself...

    I am 25 years old and from London. I have a beautiful little boy who is 2 and a half! I have tried various diets before and have lost weight but I have put it all back on :sigh:.

    I currently work for the council...which involves me sitting down for most of my shift... and I find myself just 'snacking' away!

    Hopefully tomorrow will be the day.. the weight starts to come off.

    So.. here are some stats and goals I have set... (I hope they are realistic!)

    Current weight- 14st 10lbs :cry:eek:r 197lbs
    Target weight- 10st 5lbs :D or 147lbs

    Goals
    Lose 5% of starting weight (nearly 10lbs)
    Lose 10% of starting weight (nearly 20lbs)

    Be under 14 stones...
    Be under 13 stones...
    Be under 12 stones...
    Be under 11 stones...
    Reach my target of 10st 5lbs by 31/05/2010

    Well hopefully tomorrow starts off well

    hi,
    I was trying to update the ticker but it doesn't seem to have worked or maybe I have the calculations wrong. I have gone fron 14.10 to 14.5- is this a loss of 5lbs as the info on the side of my profile states 1lb when i put it is lbs??

    What was your starting weight hun, as 14st 10lbs is 206 lbs ( 14 lbs in a stone, so 14 x14 = 196 + 10 lbs = 206 lbs)
    So 14st 5lbs is 201 lbs
    . On your ticker, are you putting your weight in in pounds or stones and pounds?

    Not too bad.. I thought the pounds would shift a bit quicker...but at least they are coming off. I've signed up to the gym and classes so hopefully this may help.
