Hello everyone, newbie starting SW
Hi folks, i have been browsing the forum for a few day's and i'm so impressed and inspired by you all.
I'm joining SW tomorrow. I'm nervous about meeting new people and being "the Big one" of the group. There seems to be a lot of info to get my head around but i'm hoping to throw myself into it with passion and determination.
I have had weight issues and been yoyo dieting since about ten years old when i put the "puppy fat" on. I am guessing i have around five stone to lose which has crept on since i stopped nicotine replacement therapy 5 years ago. I actually stopped smoking ten years ago but became addicted to the nicotine gum.
I would say i eat when i'm stressed. We buried my Dad last week after his battle with oral cancer and Mum has non hodgkins lymphoma and has been going through a lot of chemo these past few months. With this added stress i can feel myself getting heavier so i really need to get a grip NOW!!!!
Many thanks in advance in sharing my journey and good luck to you all xxx
