Hi all,

I really hope you dont mind if I join you?

I have a long way to go, but not quite as long as I did last september.....allow me to explain...

I weighed myself last September and tipped the scales at 20st 2lb, I nearly cried....I have been big all my life but this was the first time I reached the 20st mark.

I immediately went onto doing Slimming World myself..ie not joining a group..it went really well and by the end of January 2015 I had lost 3st exactly.

Since then my weight has slowly crept back up again, my own fault for not keeping to the plan.

I have avoided getting on the scales, as you do, but known for a couple of months now that I have definitely gone the wrong way. Clothes getting tighter, skin not as soft, get out of breath easier etc etc......so this morning I decided to take the plunge and get on the dreaded scales....... I have only gone and put 2 of the 3 stones back on that I lost........what an idiot!!

So here I am for some support along the way, I am determined as on our Wedding Anniversary next year we are holidaying in Scotland which we love so much. I would love to be able to go hill walking without the fear of getting out of breath and just being able to enjoy it.

I used to be a Thursday weigher and got a lot of support from Minimins last time which I see has now bit the dust. So here I am feeling posisitive again and hoping for a good loss next Monday.

Thanks for having me

Hi please could I join you? I have been doing slimming world since June and have lost a stone so far, however I have got to the stage where I am finding it hard and would welcome new ideas for meals as I find myself eating the same sort of meals all the time.
