    Red face New to Forum, veteran of Slimming World. Re-start.

    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!

    Hi! I'm new on here too and to some degree know how you feel, my husband left me a year ago as yesterday, not for another woman, but we had got into a rut and were living more like housemates than husband and wife, oh yeah, he also said he didn't find me attractive anymore. We had been together 13 years and I thought it was the end of the world at the time, however I've had the best year of my life! I've travelled to places I never thought I'd go, reconnected with friends I'd let lapse and started working through my bucket list.

    It's only now, a year on that I feel finally ready to tackle my weight issue and get back my slimmer body that I know is in there somewhere!

    I lost 2.5 stone on SW a few years back and became a consultant for a couple of years until I moved jobs and couldn't carry it on, but now I have double that to lose. Feel free to message me any time and I'll always offer support where I can!

    Hi honi, i'm new here too. I joined the forum and slimming world last week.
    I eat when i'm stressed and this year has not been kind so far. Lost my Dad to cancer a few weeks ago right in the middle of Mums chemotherapy treatment for Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. So.... i had to get a grip before i spiralled out of control.
    Hope we can all help each other on our journey xx

    Sounds like you've been having a really rotten time hun. Good on you for deciding to get a hold on things. Sometimes it helps to have something to focus on that you are in control of, when everything around you is beyond your control. Xx

    Devastated trying again

    Hi I am new here too I have been on slimming world before and went from 18 stone down to 15 half, then I lost some work so hadn't enough cash to attend meetings (which I needed to help keep on track). My youngest daughter then started uni which was heartbreaking as we are so close I hadnt realised how much it would hit me until she left. I was devastated at the weekend as I weighed in at 20 stone 1ib and didnt know what to do. Of course my habit is to eat when stressed so that doesn't help. I have tried all sorts of diets over the years and slimming world was the only one which seemed to work for me. I too am hoping to make friends and help each other through. I have promised myself to be honest and open about my eating habits now as I was alway embarassed in the group to do so, it is perhaps easier online.

    yay! I finally think I am getting the hang of replying and such on this site. Thank you, Mollyrock for replying. I am so sorry for your troubles. Stress-eating is not fun. I know this all too well. I wish I was like my friend who just cannot eat when she is stressed or worried or sad. She sits there and pines but does not put one morsel in her mouth. Thankfully she does not go through a lot of sadness. Not recently, anyway.

    It helps sometimes when you know other people are struggling just like you. You don't feel so alone when someone else understands you. Yes, I hope we can help each other out. I hope you are doing well this week. When is your weigh day?

    Hiya Bev! thank you for the support. It is heart breaking to lose weight then have to start all over again. I know that all too well! But you know what? At least we know we CAN do it, right? So if we did it before, we can do it again. And when they say hind-sight is 20/20, I guess I am going to apply it to knowing how I fell off the wagon the first time and making a point not to fall off the wagon this time.

    I've been toying with the idea of going back to group. Someone told me they have changed some stuff and I am curious. What do you think?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum too

    I've just started Slimming World. Like you, I've done it before, but then some of life's stresses got in the way and I started doing a lot of emotional and comfort eating. Would love to help each other out with support! Similar to you, I feel very alone. I live in a rural part of Scotland, and so the friends I do have live miles away (at least 1-2 hours drive in the car). So I don't really have anyone around for support and the 1 or 2 people I do know nearby here are either skinny-minnies who can eat whatever they want and still be a size 8, or are people who wouldn't have any interest in supporting someone trying to lose weight. So I'm finding it a somewhat lonely journey. Which is why I'm so glad I found this forum!

    Hopefully we can support and encourage each other along the way!!

    Hey!! I'm sorry to hear, you have no one near you for support. I don't have anyone where I live either, and all my far away friends, are used to me being on one diet or another so aren't interested anymore which doesn't help!
    Good luck on your journey! I'm excited about it!
