Hello from UK

I thought I would pop in and introduce myself. I am from the UK and have just come across this site and I think it is amazing. It is full of really useful information. I am hoping to start using Bento to make lunches to take to work and to help me lose weight. I am doing weight watchers and I have a few stone to lose so I am hoping this will also help towards that goal. I have loved all things Japanese for quite some time and I was first introduced to anime when I was at school by a friend. My obsession with all things Japanese has really spread from there and now I would like to try to use more Japanese food influences in my day to day life. :D
