Welcome, Newbie! You've come to the right site.. I'm losing slowly - about 1lb a week - as have had the same yo-yoing that I think you have experienced in the past. But feeling good healthwise and more energetic, having lost a stone - but still 2 to go, or at least :-) But am keeping to this pound-a-week diet, so that I don't continue the yo-yoing - in other words some days I don't "diet" but don't exceed 2200 cals, and others I stick to the 1400cal so that life is enjoyable, food-wise and other-wise!! TRY TO BE MINDFUL OF SUGARY STUFF AND TOO MUCH SUGAR - EVEN IF LOW-CAL DIET..

Good luck and best wishes,

Marguerite

Welcome to the site. I am new too and like you have lost weight in the past but not managed to keep it off- I have clothes in my cupboard from size 10 to size 18 though the small clothes depressed me so much that I am currently paying a lot of money to keep them in storage. Hopefully they will be back soon. I can never stick to any sort of formal diet and certainly not anything very low calorie but finding that eating more fruit and veg and cutting out cakes, biscuits, sweets and crips is doing the trick along with reading other people's motivating stories
