Hi Everyone, I have just joined today as I feel as though I'm at a point of my life where I am totally out of control with food. I know the severe health risks attached to my eating and I need to do something about it. I am male, 48, 6ft 2, weighing 435 pounds. I have had 2 previous successful weight loss journeys where I have lost 10 stone then 11 stone. I used to work as a chef so I know about food. I just need some motivation and support to do this once again. Once I get started I absolutely know that I can do it. Finances are an issue. There are 4 adults in the household and our weekly food and toiletries budget is £60. This forum is a new start for me. I plan to read through everything tonight and begin this journey once again.
