I just wanted to say Hi! as I'm new to the site. My name is Paula and this is the first time I've joined an on-line weight loss support forum and I'm hoping it will be the key I need to finally lose this weight. I've tried too many times to count but never seem to get there in the end. I've read a couple of the forums and you all sound so supportive. It's nice to think that there are people out there who understand and who can help get me through the tough times that I know will come.

Hi Paula,

Welcome on to the site! You are right, there are plenty of very supportive and knowledgeable people on this forum. Feel free to join in any of the discussions or diaries (food and exercise) and to ask any questions. I look forward to seeing you around.

35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Paula,

Welcome to the forum, we are all on a weightloss journey and it's not easy but we must think of it as a lifestyle change not a diet to break the cycle.

We have Daily Food and Excersise journels that you might like to do and you will get heaps of support from everyone here. :D .

Hi Paula, wonderful that you found us.

Have you clicked on the word register? it's toward the top right of your screen. Once that happens you'll be able to post messages with the username of your choice visable instead of the word Guest.

Thank you all for the wonderful, warm welcomes. I have already found so much inspiration, motivation and focus from the different forums and replies.

Thinking that I'm doing this on my own was not a pleasant thought. It's so comforting to know that there are wonderful people I can turn to when in need.
