I was very impressed by this site when I stumbled across it and couldn't help but join, being new to forums i'm amazed at the amount of support can be offered. I'm not here to lose loads of weight, my overal goal is to go down a stone or two and improve my fitness in order to get back into swimming, this i'd like to do before 2013 (New Year's resolution!).
I used to be very active just 2 years ago (doing charity fun runs and competing in swimming) however since then I got ill and have had to have surgery. Although i'm no longer ill I still don't feel 100%, but with the support gained from this forum and the motivation it will give me i'm sure i'll be back to my old self in time
