I've become one of those dreaded yoyo dieting, proclamation making, junk food binning, relapsing, secret eating, self loathing and unhappy beings for whom I once lacked empathy. Ive lost significant weight before through diet and exercise but slipped (hurtled at speed) back to my former state. I havent managed to stick to anything since that significant success 4 years ago and now im stuck. This year alone I must have started and failed at least 20 diets or programmes. I'm about 5 stone overweight and really feeling the serious health drawbacks of carrying extra weight. I'm ready, really ready, to make a change here. I've joined this forum to get support and make a change.
