Hi everyone

I'm Natasha and I'm 31. I have 2 kids, Logan 6 and Emmy 3. After finally being diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and three stone weight gain I joined slimming world in January. I'm getting married in June 2017 and would love to reach target by then! Due to thyroid my weight loss is very up and down, I've only lost almost 1 and a half stone since starting. I'm pushing through but can be quite disheartening when I stick 100% to plan yet can sometimes gain! Anyway I thought I would say hi and can imagine this site will be my new haunt, it's great!

Hi Natasha, welcome to Social Slimmers

1.5 stone is fantastic!! Don't be too disheartened, you've done amazing with your loss in spite of your body being awkward at times

As you've likely already seen, there are lots of threads for SW, and plenty of people who have/do follow the plan.

Good luck on the rest of your journey and I look forward to following you! x

Hi ladies

Thanks so much for the support, I really appreciate that! Yeah fingers crossed I reach target, I think I should probably step up my exercise to give a boost so that's my plan. I can't wait to try some of the recipes too.
