My name is Tamara but you can call me Wolven!
I just joined slimming world yesterday, as my auntie took me.
My reason for joining was that I have recently been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome (Both Sides) and this is after months of weight shooting up considerably despite less active lifestyle due to also being diagnosed with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (A.K.A. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Type 3), but that my weight gain was not equivalent to my eating habits.
I've been put on metformin and told that slimming world will help me feel better and boost my confidence! And just from my first session yesterday i'm looking forward to going again! It motivates me so much!

Well I hope I can be a part of a fun, friendly community!

Hi Wolven

Welcome to Social Slimmers

Not heard of Joint Hypermobility Syndrome before. Is it painful? Slimming World does seem to be the popular diet at the moment. I'm considering going back on it again too (I love their recipes ).

Look forward to seeing you on the forum

Hello Tamara,

Welcome to Social Slimmers. Good luck on your SW journey, hope to see you about the forum I started with SW and although I went it alone after a while losing weight being in control made me feel fantastic and did so much for my confidence.
