    Hello i am knew..i start on Tuesday first weigh in Monday evening when i meet my counsellor for first time even that is scary, not eating that is even scarier as i have to say i love eating in fact i live to eat not eat to live!!!!!!!:eek:

    I am 5ft 10 weight is around 15stone :eek: hopefully not for too long, but god that was hard writing that down but hopefully writing it will make me realise and face what i actually weigh coz been hiding the fact for a while and didnt realise i could hide things so well apart from food...........


    Oh well that is me speak soon and ty for reading this and hope i didn't bore you all.

    Well done for making this decision. I'm only on week 2 but already my weight is down 11lbs (unofficially). It is very hard but this site is amazing. I'm on it all the time. I honestly don't think I would have even got this far if it wasn't for the lovely people you meet here. So my advice is to get your head down and get on with it with your eyes on your goal and how quickly you'll achieve it; but mostly get on here and talk and read. You'll be supported, motivated and inspired. Good luck x

    You will be fine, Broxi is so right.. Just focus and it will just be tickety boo, lol. You may have an up day or a down day, but don't we all anyway everyday? I'm also similar to Broxi with my loss and my friends are telling me (they don't know im on the CD) that I've lost lots of weight. So.. whatever you loose, it will be a loss of something you want rid of anyway. Your hunger pangs will go away and just make sure you drink lots of water. xx:)

    For me the hard part is the cravings for food but my husband keeps saying to me, "This too will pass" (I think that's a saying from AA) but he's right, they do pass. When I'm on here I don't think about food. BTW I love food too but I hate what it does to me.

    Hi, I have around 2 stone I would like to lose, but 3 would be excellent. I am sorry to say I had a tummy tuck last year after losing weight and have gained 2 stone back on. How bad is that, so with my head held low I am determined to lose it again.

    I 'm 47! I wrote some cool stuff that happened to me on my last weight loss on another thread about people noticing - it might inspire you.
    Good luck Susan and 2 stone will hardly take you any time at all. I thought about surgery - gastic band or balloon but decided on this - much cheaper and I think just as effective.

    Hi Sharon, I just posted it on a new thread. Inspiration stories. They are true and I'm hoping for the same difference again.
