    Hi All,

    My boyfriend of 8 years proposed to me last month... some might say not in the most romantic way... not even face to face, it was by a photo, with a white board in which had "I want to spend the rest of my life with you Sammy, will you marry me?" written on, which was being held by my boyfriend in the middle of Afghan, he was covered in dirt, in cammies which he probably hadnt changed for a week.

    I was always a chubby kid but lost loads of weight in my late teens, met my boyfriend when I was 20 and he joined the Army shortly after we got together, everytime he was away for a long time, I would get down and start munching, this got worse when the wars in Iraq and Afghan started and he deployed out there, I would worry and to hide the fact I was worried I would eat myself happy, I gained a stone and a half while he was on his last tour in Iraq, he is now in Afghan and I am determind he wont come home to find Ive gained another stone or two (not that he ever says anything but ya know...) so Ive set myself a target of 6 stone and back to the weight I was when I was 21 before my wedding.

    Ive got 15 months to do it, to try and help me Ive already bought a dress... 4 sizes smaller then I currently am arghhh...
