    Hello, I'm new to this website but unfortunately not new to dieting :sigh:

    I am 22 years old and have tried many diets, mostly calorie controlled. I have signed up to Weight Watchers TWICE and failed both times. The most I have ever lost is 3 stone for my sister's wedding 2 years ago. That brought me down to 16 stone.

    I have been big ever since I hit puberty aged 10. I developed manic depression when I was 13 which lasted until I was 17. Over these years I comfort ate, piling on the pounds! Stayed at about 17.3-7 stone from age 18 to 21. Then in my final year of university I put on about 3 stone!! Resulting in my heaviest weight of 20 stone 10-11ish.

    So I'm on my weight loss journey again and this time I started at 19.9 stone. I am doing an Atkins type diet called the 'Idiot Proof Diet by Neris and India'. I have completed a week so far and have lost 7 pounds and 5 inches from my waist!

    I think this time, I will lose all the weight I want/need! Thought I'd join this great forum for some support on my weight loss journey and to keep me positive through the hard times! :hug99:

    Hey I just wanted to ask about the email you get to activate or confirm the account. I still haven't got it! I have sent a message about it using the 'Contact Us' button at the bottom a few days ago, however I still haven't got one... Atm I can't look at my profile or post in the main forums.
