    Another Newbie: 1 Stone is more difficult then you think

    Hi all,

    I am just shy of 10stone which some people don't think is all that bad but when you are only 5ft every ounce feels more obvious . I feel like I sm back to square one...my body confidence is at zero which is having an impact on me in every aspect of my life. You see about 4 years ago I managed to drop from 10.4 stone to 8.13 and I was never happier. I followed the old ww plan at that time and the weight just fell off but eventually so did I...the wagon that is. My bf moved in and things just seemed to slip. Anyway I have since tried ww again with propoints couldn't stick to it and then slimming world but never managed more than a week. I had my third child on march 8th and even though I didn't gain much through pregnancy and am back at my pre preg weight I really really need to shift this stone again! For good! Forever! For me!
    I am starting slimming world again tomorrow but won't be going to group so will be relying on all the great advice on this site I am glad to meet you all a and look forward to sharing your journeys with you xoxoxox
