Hi. My name is Delta40 and I need to lose weight. I haven't done the yoyo diet but over the past few years, I've began eating for comfort, suffered bouts of depression and become less active. I see so much advertising on telly for magical diets and am too frightened to try them because I have heard they are non-productive in the long term. I figure if I join a forum and chat with people in the same boat, it could perhaps be a good way to get myself motivated.
