Minimins Refugee - A New Start

Hello All,

I am a Minimins refugee, been a member for years, although not on there constantly...hence why I only just found out its closed!!

I did join a different forum that was set up when the old site closed, but it's not very active as not many minimins have found it.... so have joined this one as it has many more members!

I started Slimming World 2 weeks ago, my first weigh in was 2.5lb loss. I have tried in the past to lose weight and failed, but I have never had any motivation or reason (other than my dreams of being thin). I now have something that has kicked me in to reality!!

We have just re-mortgaged our house and I have been turned down for life & critical illness cover. I have tried multiple insurance companies in the hope one will insure me...albeit with a ridiculously high premium.... but alas I cannot find one willing to do so. So presently If anything were to happen to me, my family would lose the house as hubby could never pay for it on his single wage. That is my wake up call!!!

Anyway, its a pleasure to meet you all and I'm sure we will cross paths along our journey.

Hi and welcome - already said that in your journal

Really hope you find it as supportive here, and there are a few of us who were shocked by minimins closing. I haven't been on there for a few years but it was my first port of call when decided to do SW.

It's lovely here though and really supportive members. Look forward to celebrating your losses with you.
