Thank you Tiggerr

Make sure you are eating enough calories as when I first joined it turned out I was only eating around 1000 Cals a day and not eating enough calories means your body thinks your starving it and turns what your eating into body fat and this weighs more than eating the extra calories does so it stops you from losing weight and sometimes puts weight on instead. Don't make this same mistake as I did this all my life. I am glad I have finally found this out. Good luck with your journey.

Thank you hubbyMissMouse it a long journey but I'll do it

Hi try not to let the situation rule you and drag you down because you can do it and here is the most supportive place I've known. I've only been on the forum for 4 weeks but I find counting my calories is not the chore I thought it would be with all the lovely recipe ideas and a lot of cheerful chat to read and participate in. You feel more positive about the whole journey knowing lots of others are doing similar things and sharing their ups and downs and for all of us it's about changing our thoughts on food and what is the best fuel for our bodies, it's no good putting petrol in a diesel car and likewise with our bodies! Good luck with your weight loss :)
