Hi im new to the group. Ive got 18 months to my 60 birthday and im determined to loose some weight before then. Ive weighed myself today and my starting weight is 12:13. Ive tried many diets and groups but failed in all. Found the slimming groups very tiresome having to listen to everyones loss or gain which took up most of the evening. I need motivation to keep on track. As you all seem to weigh in on mondays i will weigh again tomorrow following the weekend. Im looking forward to achieving this time.
