Well Hi there folks! Have just signed up to this, as I really do need to make an effort to lose 2-3 stone! I have a desk job and the pounds have crept up on me without noticing, not helped by all the biscuits I eat to break up the monotony of sitting in front of a computer! I had an informal health test the other week there, offered free by the council and found that my cholesterol is also slightly high, so I need to take action! My general diet is actually quite healthy . . . but it's the naughty snacks, including chocolate and wine which are my are my downfall! So, I'm going to try to aim for losing a pound week and see how we go!
