So I went from 21 stone to 15 stone on Slimming World. It took two years and I was in a really good place and focused on my goal of 10 stone 5 lbs. Then I got an injury then got made redundant from my job (which I loved). Then someone I thought was a friend confided in me that my husband used to make passes at her when I was bigger and my marriage just went sour. It all went higgledy-piggledy and I shot up to 19 stone. I am now back on track and currently 18st 11lbs. I am not attending group but I am following plan and getting in some walking now that the weather is nicer.
However, I miss the support from people. I miss the Body Image stuff and the general camaraderie of the good folks at group. When I came upon this forum I thought, "yay! I get to lament and rejoice with people again!"
I do hope I make some friends because I feel dreadfully lonely in all of this. I do have friends but most of them either don't need to lose weight or really don't care to because they love to eat, drink and be merry. And they all tell me that I am beautiful the way I am but I am not happy with how I look so I am doing my best to stay to plan.
So... here we go! Wish me luck!
