Hi! I have just signed up having read all the great support offered on the forum. I am 51 years old and have been about 4 stone overweight for about 16 years (my son is now 16 so I think the excuse of baby weight is a bit overused!) I think I have done most diets on the market and lost weight, then put it back on and more, but as age is creeping up I am feeling the consequences of carrying all this extra weight around. My problem is the same everytime! I eat when I socialize and I eat when I am bored, so I am my own worst enemy I can be really good during the day and then easily eat 1000 calories plus due to boredom in an evening so I am hoping that all this fantastic support on here will stop that. I haven't worked out how to sign up for the Monday weigh in yet, but will try to do that. I am determined to do this but having said that several times before I am also a bit scared that once again I will fail.
