View Full Version : Hello I'm new here

Hi everyone.
I started browsing this forum last week and decided to join in.
I live in the Uk and have had a weight problem for most of my adult life which wasn't helped by a skinny controlling ex husband. But I ditched him and now is the right time to ditch the rest of my baggage.
I am following the Special K diet I started in on 25th August and up to Monday had lost 5lb. I am someone who jumps on the scales every time I enter the bathrom so am trying so hard not to and only get weighed on Mondays.
I have also started exercising treadmill and Wii fit to try and spped up my loss. My first goal is 14lb by 30th Sept. That's when we go to Spain for a well deserved break.
Hope to catch people daily on here

Welcome aboard. I weigh myself every morning. That actually helps keep me on track better. Besides, I'm too dang curious to wait. The water in the shower takes a while to heat up so I just always weigh myself while standing there freezing hoping that the shower will take pity on me and get warm faster. :D Congratulations on your loss so far. It is so exciting to see the scale going down.

I get to go to England on the 25th for 10 days. I'm SOOO excited. Leaving the husband and kids at home actually...going over to do photography with a bunch of people on a board I'm one of the admin on. Actually staying with 3 different families I've never met IRL. I haven't been to the UK since '94. Not doing any touristy places except a 1/2 day in London and a trip to the York Minster. Loved the York Minster so much the last time I was there, but was enjoying the tour so much I totally forgot to take pictures! :D

Welcome, Sharon! Congrats on your weight loss so far!

Check out my stats below and you'll see that I enjoyed lot of loss right out of the gate, but it slowed down later. That's normal. But, I've kept with it and I've lost 42 pounds now! I feel SOOO much better.
