Hi, I'm Sarah a complete newbie....joined today.
Just a quickie to introduce myself. My weight loss journey began last February when I moved house and joined a new doctors surgery. I was told that I needed a routine medical check in order to be moved from my previous doctors.
In no uncertain terms the nurse who did my medical (who was lovely....but honest) told me that I was well into the obese category and that I should consider losing weight. I was beside myself...I had always been big since childhood and never really saw a massive issue in it. But the word 'obese' was a wake up call for me.
Since that date I have lost two stone so far, and am continuing on my journey. I came across this site this morning whilst looking for inspiration.....im so glad I found it. Everyone seems so friendly and welcoming.
If I lose another 10lbs I will be within a healthy B.M.I...for me this is a huge milestone and I will do whatever it takes to get there......and stay there....forever!
