Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes.
I guess this an apology and confession. As you might be able to tell fom the delay in response here and lack of posts elsewhere on the forum - I am doing a very succesfull job of avoiding doing anything constructive about dealing with my weight. If my eating isn't 100% spot on, I feel that I may as well give up and I end up back at square one. I can't tell you how many times I have gone to post to the daily food diaries and stopped because I didn't think I ate well enough to share. Joining this forum is a start in getting accountable to myself and I don't want to burn this bridge.
But, I am off on a lovely holiday for a month or so and plan on regrouping to come back and join in the forums like I 'meant' to a couple of weeks ago
