    Hi all,

    I'm sure this place is inundated with new members at this time of year. I'm not one for New Year resolutions or diets, but I've been wanting to make changes to the way I eat for a while, and after the Christmas period my body is just screaming out to be healthy for a bit.

    I have PCOS and IBS, and although I'm about average build for my 5'7 frame I do look heavily pregnant when I start getting bloated, which is all the time. I used to be very slim pre two kids. When I met dh I was a kickboxing instructor, but I didn't take pregnancy well and a variety of minor health problems and lack of babysitters meant fitness fell by the wayside.

    In a charity shop over christmas I came across the Rosemary Conley GI Hip and Thigh Diet book for £1, so bought it for a quick read and some ideas. I decided to give it a go, and bless my dh he has decided to join me. We're on day 3 of the fat attack fortnight, and although swapping meals around we're sticking to the calorie count and fat content.

    Evening snacks is our downfall, so any advice on that would be great. I just love to chill in front of the tv with a large glass of wine and giant bag of crisps *sigh* ah well, I'll be happy if it works.

    I'm enjoying looking round the forums, seeing everyone's stories.

    Here's to a healthy new year :)

    Thank you. I've said hi in the RC section now too. Hopefully get some good pointers there.

    I'm really pleased dh has joined me, even if he does keep waving around crisps and chocolate and telling me how nice they look. He's not given in yet tho, well that I know of anyway! :)
