    Hi everyone,

    My names Stevie i'm 33 years old and have a whole lot of poundage to loose !! I have been a fad dieter in the past slimming world, weight watchers, cambridge, 5:2 you name it i've probably tried it, I usually loose a few stone then put it back on. Just after new year I was admitted to hospital unexpectedly with shortness of breath, and TBH it scared the crap out of me !!! lightbulb moment !!! Now that my breathing is alot better I have decided to embark on calorie counting. I'm using My Fitness Pal which is allowing me 1310 calories a day, plus i'm walking the dog everyday using Map My Walk. I am going to read through the diaries on here for inspiration and to gain the motivation I need.

    Here's to a slimmer 2014 :D
