    Hi everyone.

    I have been lurking for a few weeks before daring to post:eek:

    I started Lighter Life 13 days ago and so far I am finding it very easy. I lost 9 lbs the first week at at my drop-in on Saturday I had lost another 4 lbs so need to lose one more lb to make that first stone. I am determined to make my goal weight but more importantly I am determined to change my life style completely so that I am more active and more thoughtful about my food.

    I am caring for my husband who is terminally ill. It is a tough time for us both but I decided that I need to look after me as well as everyone else and losing weight is the most positive thing I can do.

    I look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing our successes.

    Welcome Scrapmouse. I like your name :)

    Glad you came out from lurking. This is an amazing forum, with loads of support, with like minded people. The support may be helpful not only for weight, but for what you are dealing with, with your husband. I am very sorry to hear you are coping with that and cannot imagine what that might be like for you. <hugs>

    Be proud of yourself for taking care of yourself as well. You need to be well, physically and mentally to cope with that, so well done. And I bet it makes your hubby proud too.

    Once again, glad you are here, and a very well done on your loss so far! Keep it up girl!!

    Thank you for making me so welcome. I am a keen scrapbooker, and quilter and my surname rhymes with "Mouse" hence the name! :D :D :D

    Hi Sally you're doing great so far, well done :)

    Welcome to the group, as you'll know from lurking the chat here ranges from LL to the world inbetween, so just jump on in and feel at home.

    I am sorry to hear about your husband, it must be so hard for you, I cannot begin to imagine how you cope with such a thing (((hugs))).

    I've never tried scrapbooking or quilting - there is a forum on hobbies so you should check that out too.

    Good luck with your diet - I hope it continues to go well for you, I see it's your 2nd week weigh in tomorrow too so you started on the same day as me and Blonde Logic :)
