Slimming World Tips I Need To Lose 20stone Let's Do It Together

Hi my name is Andy and I just found these forum I am 46 years of age and have battled with my weight most of my life, I have like most people done all the diets out there and had a measure of success with them all but then the inevitable happens you put back on what you lost and maybe some on top.

For 15 years + I have also struggled with sometimes debilitating depression and anxiety which doesn't help when trying to lose weight. The most effective thing I ever did was Slimming World, no pills, powder, promises just real food which is a sustainable way to live your life.

So since 2014 I have suffered a Pulmonary Embolism which could have killed me, I have been diagnosed with Stable Angina, I have Sleep Apneoa and Osteoarthritis in my right knee so I am in pretty bad shape but I am still here and I believe that is for a reason.

The reason being to fulfill my journey and to help and inspire others to achieve their goals and dreams too.

I started back to SW about 8 weeks ago spent 2 weeks in hospital during that time, but to date have lost 1 and 1/2 stone which I am really pleased with. I am no longer keeping my depression under the rug instead I am openly talking about it to motivate others to do the same.

I started a YouTube channel where I will be putting out videos to help people on SW, taste tests, cook alongs etc...I post pretty much what I eat on Instagram (andynev70) you can find me on Twitter (andynev70) links to videos on there.

I want to help as many people as I can, answer questions and make suggestions and take inspiration from all the other people out there on their SW journeys so we can all succeed in our journey called life.

My motto is life is always worth living #neverquit

Thanks for reading

good job till now andy, keep on going you are on the right track,wish you achieve what you are striving for. here are a few tips that could help you because I have been diagnosed with high level cholesterol that could be harmful after wards,then I decided not to get into medication and try some other ways to get rid of it, a brief research of a few days I had managed to schedule my physical exercise and diet plan, and you will be astonished within a month I managed to drop my cholesterol level up to the normal level, although I have done extremely hard for a few days but as soon as I came to know that I have achieved the milestone I decreased the level of intensity, and now I am absolutely fit and happy,may be because of my success over disease without using any medicine. but my moral is touching the sky, yessssss I can do it

Hi Andy, welcome to Social Slimmers

I'm also a huge advocate of SW - I like my food and SW allows me to actually eat food rather than shakes, etc. (plus I don't like milk, so I'd never survive on a shake diet )

Well done on your losses so far too! That's brilliant
I'm sorry to hear you sturggled with so much over the last few years - I can't imagine that it has been anywhere near easy, but you seem to be doing really well after all that, and with the depression
There are lots of us that follow SW on here, and I'm sure the newbie SW followers will be grateful for any help that we can give them.
Good luck on the rst of your journey, and I look forward to following you!
