Hey! I'm in the same boat, I'm looking for a penpal to support each other on our weight loss journeys. I'm from Scotland, a few years ago I lost 5 stone but I've gained it all back plus extra. I want to lose weight again but I need help.

Hi and welcome to Social Slimmers! Making small changes is a good start as it can feel too overwhelming and resistive to change too much at once.
Sometimes getting into a new habit is the hardest part but it gets easier.
Good luck

Hi Ally, welcome to the forum.

I've done exactly the same thing as you, lost almost 2.5 stone, and then put it all back on over 18-ish months. I'm still working on getting rid of it again, but I'll get there so I know exactly how you feel!

Do you have a particular plan that you would like to follow?

Hi Ally!

Welcome to Social Slimmers.

I did similar last year and the way forward was to stop beating myself up, it was what it was and only I could sort it and I motivated myself forwards.

Put an old pic of you on your fridge?
Create mini targets rather than aiming for the final goal?
