Slimming World - rejoined

Hi All,

I'm a lapsed Minimins poster and have recently rejoined SW.

I originally joined SW in Jan 2011, weighing 17st and definitely feeling the weight. I managed to lose nearly 4 stone, buy after a bit of a personal crisis in early 2012, I proceeded to put the lot back on. I rejoined a couple of times, but just couldn't find my mojo.

So nearly 5 years on, I'm back with a starting weigh in of 17st 12lbs. I've lost 8lbs of that so far, so great start, but despite trying not to think about it, I have such a huge mountain yet to climb.

I am stunned that Minimins has gone, there were some lovely folk over there, but maybe some now post here that I will recognise.

So, my plan I to start writing my food on here and general weight loss diarising. Am hoping it'll help me build and maintain momentum. Given Xmas is round the corner, I'll need all the help I can get.

P xx

Hi and welcome

I've seen 17st range twice in my life too - I know how hard that journey can seem and still does to me some days, but keep those mini goals going and you'll get further down the road before you know it - well done on a great start!

There is a great journal section here, weekly weigh ins on the day of your weigh in, and even a Christmas challenge if you fancy a few weeks motivation

Well done making a big step in the right direction.

Thank you both. Yes I will keep a diary and I'll take a look at the Christmas challenge bit too. Though my goals this side of Christmas are pretty modest. 😊

Hi Pinkie and welcome to the forum. I found that recording my food on here is definitely the best thing for accountability. Good luck!

Hi Pinkie!

Maybe set yourself some mini goals and forget about the past.

It took me to put some weight back on to realise how I didn't want to stay like that again too.

You can do it
