So hi there. Ive been a forum lurker for many years, and I'm finally noting the bullet and contributing, as I'm in serious need of some support if this diet is going to work, and more importantly is going to last. Ive also gots lots of support to give, so here's hoping that we can all get through this together. im 32, seriously overweight and tomorrow am going out to buy some weight scales, then on Monday am starting on slimfast. slimfast worked well for me before, I lost about 5 stone (probably about two thirds of that is back on again), but it works for me because I don't have to plan meals during the day, and everything is fixed portion etc so no cheating (I am reeeeally good at cheating), so here goes. Wish me luck!!
