hi everyone, newbie here! :)

hey everyone,
I'm finally starting to take my health seriously and have 8 stone to lose, it's a scary thought and seems so much to have to lose. I've always been big since i was about 7/8 so i just cant imagine myself being slim. My family that i live with are slim and healthy weights, there is still junk food in the house so that is going to be hard to avoid and they don't really understand but are still very supportive.
on a positive note i'm looking forward to being comfortable in my own skin, being able to wear what i want and have the confidence to find a partner and of course be healthy
I look forward to the support from this forum and supporting you all through an incredible journey

Hi

Might seem a lot but slow and steady and you'll get there. I'm pretty sure I saw that someone on here lost about 5 stone in a year without going over the top, and Molly on here has lost almost a stone this month

You can do it Do you have any ideas what kind of diet you want to try?

Look forward to seeing you on the forum

Thank you for the warm welcome Mitch yeah, i know its not going to happen over night but it seems like its going to take ages but wow a stone in a month is great!
I'm eating healthily and counting my calories mixed with plenty of exercise. I'm on my feet all day at work so it's good exercise
I looove food so temptation is hard, especially when all my friends are twigs that can eat like a horse haha.
I look forward to seeing you in the forum too

Hi Hayley

Welcome to the forum

I lost just over 4 stone in a year, I think some exercise also helped where it wasn't just the weight but shape/inches.

Think about where you want to be in a year and grab it imagine where you don't want to be in a year, be positive and believe in yourself.
