Looking for penpal

Hey there! I'm new to this, I've never written on a forum before.

I'm 24, and very overweight. A few years ago I lost 5 stone but I've gained it all back plus extra and am struggling to find the motivation to do it again. It's my birthday in a couple of weeks, and I'm going away, so I'm looking to start a serious diet after my weekend away. (Middle of May). I'd like a penpal who is also at the beginning of their weight loss journey for support. Even though I won't start dieting until a few weeks from now, I'd still like to find someone now and make a friend and we can maybe start together? Preferably I'd like someone around my age but it's not a big deal.

I'm not sure how forums work, but hopefully someone can reply to this?

Thanks!

And I didn't realise this was a slimming world forum. I'm not a member of slimming world, but I'm willing to join up!

Hi Alison
This isn't a SW forum. There are different sections for all kinds of weight loss methods.
Everyone is really friendly and you should hopefully find the inspiration to a new way of eating

Oh! Cool beans. I read a few people's posts and they're were all slimming world and I just assumed. Either way we are all in the same boat eh? Hopefully I'll find someone!

Hi Alison!

Welcome to Social Slimmers.

We aren't solely for SW. I'm not on SW ... are you just going for the eat healthy approach?

Starting a journal gives you accountability and support from everyone which motivates most of the time. You can start one here: Dieting Journals
