my intro

Hi, I have been struggling with my weight since the birth of my first child in 2006. I have tried various diets and am a serial yo-yo dieter! I am the heaviest i have ever been weighing in at nearly 18st! my BMI is 45.5 and I have bad back and joint problems. I suffer with depression and my weight and body size contributes to that.

I have three children 11,5 and 10 months and I just want to be a fit Mom! I want to take my kids swimmig and not feel like a beached whale, I want to wear nice clothes in the summer and not have to cover up all the time.

I'm just desperate to find a plan that fits into my lifestyle and that works!

Hi Hidden Ditch the your, don't think of this as yet another diet.. This is a lifestyle change to allow you to be fit and healthy, and more important a great role model for your young ones.

You will get what you put in on the forum, so be active, be involved and enjoy many new friendships along this journey. I joined this forum in January and have been encouraged by the replies and comments I've read on different ones posts... Along with personal advice that proved very beneficial.

Wishing you great success and support through the ups and downs...

Be loyal to you and your goals..

🔐 We all hold the key to unlock what we are really capable of.. Just believe it, work at it and enjoy the progress.

Cheering you on 🎉🎉🎉

The good news is that losing weight will help with all of those other things - the depression, the pain, the self-confidence. Please do take a look at my profile and some of my past posts. I lost 4.5 stone/ 63lbs (28.5kg) - it took me two and a half years and I have re-gained a little and lost again - but determined never ever to get back to the place I was in when I started!

I have struggled with my weight since the age of 9 and am now 54 - it's never too late and please do be strong and positive!
