    Hi all,:wave_cry:

    I am new to this site my name is Laura, from Dublin, Ireland, and I have read this site for a while and think it is great. I have joined to get encouragement to lose all my weight.

    I have been doing Weight Watchers since the end of August 2009 and have lost over three and a halfstone in weight but I need to lose a lot more and I hope to do it this year. This is the first christmas that I have stuck to the diet. I am very pleased with myself.:)

    Going back to my first weight in class on Thursday after Christmas, hopefully I will lose some weight. (I have a very long way to go until I get to my target).

    At the moment I am just taking it one day at a time, as I find it easier, If I start to think of what I still have to lose, I'd be afraid I will not stick to it.

    My leader in Weight Watcher is great support and very helpful, and from day one he has told me to track what I eat everyday, which is what I have being doing and it has helpd, even over christmas I tracked everything I ate and I think that helped.

    I hope to hear from people on the site and hopefully I can help them and they can help me on our diet journey.:eek:

    Hi, would just like to say thank you to all the people who replied to my post, and hopfully we can help each other on our diet journey.

    With the weather being so bad outside Im stuck in the house a lot more, but being on the computer does keep your mind off food. Were before I got the laptop I ate just because I was bored, I dont even think I was hungry half the time.

    Was meant to be weigh in day on Thursday night, but couldn't make it with the snow, so hopeful I can make it next week, I miss not getting weight, as I think it helps you and at least you know if you are doing it right. i'll just keep doing what I am doing and see what happens next week

    Going to get to my goal!!!!!!!

    Well done on your great weight loss so far! You are doing brilliantly, keep it up!
    Im new too and lost over a stone on my own, without meetings, so far and find this place really helps distract me from snacking, and at least its a postive distraction diet wise! I wish you the best of luck and will be glad of another person for some mutual support :)

    Tonight was the first weigh in after the Christmas break, and I lost 6lbs, I was delighted, I now have lost 4 stone and 2lbs. I am delighted as I watched it over christmas, which was the first time ever for me.
