Newbie Alert

Hi everyone!!
I'm Emsie and I look forward to being part of the group, sharing experiences and learning along the way!!
I guess my weight yoyo's and has done from an early age.
I originally lost 4 and a half stone 10 years ago on my own, but over the years it has gradually crept back on.
So I decided to make a stand and made it my mission to start again!
I was going it alone and successfully lost 6lbs, which was great but I was finding it harder than the first time. And then slowly watching people at work shedding the pounds via Slimming World (I've never been one to try diets) I thought I'd give it ago!
I'm on week 7 now and have lost my first stone, but best of all I'm actually really enjoying it!!
Anyway enough of me!
Emsie

Thank you for the warm welcome!!
I can't wait to continue my journey, especially now that I have found the forum. I stumbled upon it earlier, as I didn't think there were any, not up to date ones anyway.

Hello Emsie! Welcome to the forum!

I've done my share of the yo-yo weight loss and gain too. Old habits are really hard to change sometimes. Baby steps and one day at a time for me.
