    Hi everyone.

    I only just joined and made a ticker to start my journey.

    I have spent the last 6 years packing weight on. The other day I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and truly felt sick at the sight.

    I have a daughter, age 6 and although my husband and I want a second child, my doctor says at my current enormous size, it would be reckless and dangerous for me to fall pregnant. Apparently my heart won't cope. When I did my first BMI test online yesterday, it also indicated that I was in serious danger. :eek: I don't know how I let this get so out of hand, but I need to fix it!

    I have virtually no self control when it comes to food and even less motivation when it comes to exercise. I found this site and think it is my best shot at a new life of being healthy. Surrounded by people who understand what I am going through and who can give me REALISTIC advice on meals and tips is what I need.

    So this is me :)

    When I figure out what all the font and colour settings mean, my posts will probably get prettier to look at too. :D

    (trying again because it seems my first attempt didn't go onto the forum)

    Hi :) Thanks.
    No, I have not decided which diet to follow yet.
    I am slowly making my way through all the posts to see what options I have. I don't know very much about the diets out there.
    Thanks for the welcome :)
