    Hi Ally

    You are doing much better. I just want to give you some hope and encouragement. At the beginning of August 2013 I was wearing size 26 trousers and size 24 everything else. Now I'm wearing size 14 trousers and tops and I can fit into size 12 jeans (depending on the make). I began with 20 minute brisk walks 4 times a week then daily. I then increased to 30, 40, 50 minutes. I have a low carb diet and I also limit my daily calories. I was a dreadful binge eater and I also live alone. You can do it too! I'm sure you will . Good luck dear!!

    Ooopos. Formating has gone a bit odd there!!

    Ally, what a landmark.

    I know you will want to bring that down a bit, and bring the others down too, but it's your first reading on DUK Target.

    I don't know about you, but I want to run round the room, waving my arms above my head !!!!

    Big well done Ally!! Keep going, you are doing so well now- be proud of your self!! I have been doing this 13 weeks now and don't weigh my self (years ago I became obsessed while doing a very low calorie diet) the day of diagnosis the nurse practitioner weighed me but I said I didn't want the figure, I am now two jeans sizes down ( my newest I got three weeks ago are now starting to slip too!) So don't get hung up on scales, go by clothes and how you feel! I am tall too - 6.2 1/2 so average weight etc isn't a guideline for me as such!!

    my dad is tall as are all his siblings but my mum is quite small so I must have got her genes. I was really tall as a kid then hit puberty early and just stopped growing. I think now they should have done tests then as it seems obvious with hindsight that my endocrine system wasn't all it should be.
