    Newbie

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this page and am really looking forward to chatting to people. I've joined slimming world 4 weeks ago because I'm absolutely fed up of hating the way I look, 5 years ago I used to be for and healthy, I was diagnosed with underactive thyroids and gained 8 stone in a year! I was also emotional eating because of a relationship breakup, I lost 4 stone with weightwatches in about 6 months (to quick) and unfortunately that's all back on! Something clicked in my head and I just are everything in site, I am so unhappy about my life but I'm sure as soon as I start loosing weight I'll start to feel happier and start enjoying life again, I'm hoping this forum will give me the support I need, the fact I need to lose 8 stone is a big strain on the way I think, 5.5lbs lost so far on slimming world!
    Sorry for the rambling on!

    Thankyou, I've never done the whole forum thing, I'm not very good at talking to new people as I'm quite an anxious person, but... I really feel that this will help my confidence and my weight loss, I've been reading through a few threads and there's some really supportive, lovely people. Thankyou for getting in contact! X

    Once you get the hang of it, you'll love it, I assure you! I end up rambling far too much, but everyone is so lovely that no one seems to mind! You could always start writing a weight loss diary (I've just done this myself) - that way, you can put your thoughts down, list your food and people can read it and offer advice/suggestions in regards to what you're eating. Might help if you're a little anxious. Let me know if you do and I'll make sure to keep an eye on it! x
