Today!!

Hi guys,

Just joined you lovely lot today. I will have a mooch about and start making the changes I need to in the next couple of weeks (I can not find the weekly weigh ins etc. - could someone point me in the right direction?).

The main reason for joining is that I want to lose 6 ish stone mainly for health reasons as I have put on something like 3 and a half stone in the last 3 years (I have a bad back - amongst other things).

I gave up drinking alcohol in October to help improve my life mentally and physically (it is all going well - fingers crossed) so on to the next challenge........my weight.

Look forwards to chatting with you.

Well done for finding us WiggleWiggle (love your name)

Have a good read of the link moreless has given you, I call it the sat-nav of the forum.. the weigh ins, daily diary and all sorts of challenges and recipe posts will be easy to find from the instructions there.

Congratulations on giving up alcohol since October.. Great result.

Cheering you on to reach your goals. 🎉🎉🎉

Hey Minniewinny thank you for your response - thank you so much. I am trying to really improve my health and weight loss is a huge part of that (I gave up all processed meats two years ago as they are full of all sorts of things and linked to cancer........ditto that for alcohol and my joints are really suffering so here I go weightloss. Caffeine next as I have a stomach ulcer and acid reflux - that is going to be hard!!).

So excited to have found you guys. Happy New Year to you. X x

Brilliant thank you - I will weigh and submit my weight. My scales are a bit old so think I will go to Boots once a week and weigh. Exciting. X x
