Hello there! After browsing this site for a couple of weeks now, I thought I'd finally join! Everyone seems so lovely and supportive here. Although everyone's situation is different, it's amazed me how many people are fighting a similar battle to me and its comforting to know, from reading your stories, that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

As a kid I was always bigger than the rest and that continued through my teens into adulthood...I guess I just got used to it and knew no different. Over 2 years ago however, I joined a gym, thinking it would be the magic solution to my problem...but here we are now...and nothing has changed! I now realise the money leaving my bank every month doesn't magically melt the pounds off of me...i actually have to go more than once every-now-and-again-when-i-can-be-bothered!

A friend of mine is getting married July 2010, for which I am a bridesmaid, so I figured, if I can't have a wedding of my own to lose weight for, then we shall use her's as the impetus!

So we'll see how it goes....!

Hi Debs, welcome to the board. Good luck with your weightloss journey.

Aww thanks to everyone for the welcome!

Irene, I hope to maintain a slow and steady combo of excercise and healthier eating. My main problem was eating rubbish totally unnecessarily....normally at night and out of boredom...I blame my sweet tooth! But hopefully a bit of willpower will go a long way!

i'm the same Debs. Once my Daughter's in bed and I get on the PC, I just pig out on rubbish. Think it's worse coz I don't allow myself to smoke in the house, so I nibble instead of smoke. Need to get myself one of those inhalator things I think, Keep my hands busy!
