Default Another UK newbie

Hi all,

I'm new around here and thought I'd say hi!

I'm 5'10" and 172lbs trying to lose 3 stone (42lbs) for health reasons - I used to be 9 stone and since I've put on weight I'm getting awful daily migraines and have to take a lot of medication to control them, so I'd like to lose weight to see if this will help me control my migraines again.

I've not joined any slimming clubs as I thought I'd give it a go myself first of all - my husband is on board to help motivate me too.

I wanted to get some moral support and I so I thought I'd say hi on here .

Good to hear your husband is on board, encouragement and motivation from others definitely helps.

Hi Rach and welcome.

I just signed up a few days ago and have just spent my time checking out the different forums before I start the slog if weight loss.

Everyone seems really friendly so I am sure we will do just fine.

Welcome and good luck! Please join in the chat thread and we'll all help each other reach our goals!
No fads, no unattainable targets.... just me and my good choices

Daily weigh ins, planned meals, controlled treats and alcohol and a more active, positive outlook on my lifestyle. Could this finally be the recipe for success?!
