Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I'm sure i have been dieting for about 25 years, dont remember ever not watching my weight

Starting Weight: 226

Present Weight: 202

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I blame my french mother- red wine and goooood cheese and home cooking. I need to control emotional eating too.

Following any specific plan: Not at present, i have been following a very strict low carb diet, but was finding it far too difficult, so now i am counting calories....eating lots of fruit and veg and very little fat. I'm buying no convienience foods and cooking everything from scratch, preferably organic produce.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am now the lightest that i have been in 10 years and i'm determined not to gain any weight again, no more yo-yo dieting. My patner jimmy and i would love to start a family in the next 2 years, and i want to make sure i am at target before i do!

I look forward to knowing you all better and sharing weight loss tips and hints and most of all success!
