    Morning all,
    I have just come back from my first weigh in and was appalled that i weigh 17st 9 lbs! bmi 37.5
    I could never tell anyone in 'real' life tht i weigh so much so its great to have this forum, i use cambridge a few years ago but only managed 2 weeks!
    Im determined this time my man goal is to enter my 30's as a slim healthy mum!
    (im 28 now with 2 lttle girls)
    This website is great and i find all your posts very inspirational! :eek:

    Hi and Welcome!
    You are not alone and we're not shocked! ((Hugs))

    At 5'3" I found myself a few years ago at 17st.. got down to 12 and a half but am now back up at 15.. well i'm human.. so here I am kicking my butt and restarting next week (couldn't see my CDC any earlier).

    Anyway.. we CAN Do it, there are stories on here SO inspiring, we've just go to apply ourselves properly. :)

    I'd recommend joining a group or challenge - we've just started an easter one too - so there are lots to choose from. :)

    Keep telling yourself it gets easier.. 'cos it does!! :cool:

    Good luck, i started CD on Monday (second time for me too) and having lost 6lbs in 5 days feels great. This forum is a lifesaver for keeping you focused when things get tough. x
