Newbie here - Hello!

Hi, I'm littlelolly, Im 40 years old and I hope I can still use this site and join you so that we can help each other along our journeys as I am joining Weightwatchers on Wednesday through my GP with vouchers so I have to really try hard.

Like other posters on here I have and still am battling clinical depression since the last 5 years. I really want to sort my weight problem out, I need to lose 3 stone. Before becoming ill I was 3.5 stones lighter and I do blame the illness causing me to comfort eat, not exercise, plus constant medication upheaval.

I also have a highly stressful job which I have taken a step out of to try to sort myself out so I'm going to do something less stressful for a while and try to get the old me back.

Anyway, lets all help each other and we will get there. Xxx

  • Hi and welcome Littlelolly :)

    Go to the Pinned Posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile) and take a look at the Welcome Newbie thread. If you have any questions, look at the Topics below, to see if they'll help you out, or ask on the forum. Join any, or all of our challenges :)

    We run daily weigh-in sessions and you would be very welcome to join, on any day, except Sunday. The thread can be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page, bottom if using a mobile.

    Have a look at the 12 week plan, to see if that might be something that would appeal to you and don't forget to take initial measurements and photos, as it's a great way of seeing just how far you've come, especially when the scales aren't co-operating fully :)

    Wishing you all the very best with your weight loss journey :)

  • Thank you
