Well I'm back! My weight loss journey so far has been very up and down.

I've been addicted to trying fast weight loss techniques to lose weight as quickly as possible with the result that I lose weight quickly, drop off the wagon, regain the weight plus some more and stay off the wagon because I just can't face that type of diet again!

I've also had some personal difficulties to deal with so I've been sidetracked.

No more. I have decided that enough is enough. I really need to tackle my weight problem - I started again two weeks ago and so far I've lost 3lbs. I'm aiming to lose 35lbs by Christmas.

My current weight is 13 stone 1.

I'm starting right back at the beginning again and making small changes along the way.

My first goals are:-

to eat no more than 1500 calories per day
to exercise for 40-45 minutes pre breakfast and 40-60 minutes each evening
to take my Kelp tablets and Licorice

That's it. I'm going to do this for the next week and then make another change.

Here's to being a healthier me as a Christmas present to myself.

P.S. I've noticed I have a lot of comments - thank you. I shall come back later to answer everyone!

Have you given any consideration at all with translating your site into German? I know a couple of of translaters here that would certainly help you do it for free if you wanna contact me.

Not clear on what you have got in mind, Laila. Can you give us some more information?

This article is truly helpful. I'm able to override author', email' and url' default settings, but I'm not able to override comment_field', it is getting duplicated, i.e. the default textarea is also appearing with my custom comment textarea. Any help would be appreciated.

Just wondering, before I consider subscribing... is this an actual, individually composed letter to just about every subscriber, or does just about every writer compose a single letter each week and send the same composition to all from the subscribers they're assigned to write to?
