Quick silly story as to why I am here. I live in the UK and I recently volunteered for a weight loss study being done through NHS. They were looking for slightly overweight but otherwise healthy folks and I qualified. I went in for my first check-up and weigh-in yesterday. I should say now that the actual study does not start for another two weeks.

Anyhow I thought I had gained mayyyyyybe 10 pounds since I last was really paying attention to such things. I mean I feel heavier but my clothes still fit. Turns out I had gained 21 pounds (!!?!?!).

On the cycle ride home I kept thinking that there must be some mistake...my clothes fit! But no, another scale confirmed it.

Thus, at the preliminary visit for a weight-loss study I have been horrified into losing weight. I sulked for about an hour, then said "ok time to solve this." I've given all my evil foods away to my housemates, I've gone back to the gym, I've broken the news to my lovely (and svelte) boyfriend, and I have signed up here.

I'm new, I don't know how things work, I'll be playing around with it, but hello anyway!
