    Second time i have a massive journey

    Hi, I'm Abbie.

    I've stumbled on this forum by pure accident, I'm not 100% sure I'm supposed to be here! I've not been referred here or anything, but I joined anyway as it seems really active and has some larger people here as well which is very important to me at this point.

    I have well over 10 stone to lose for the second time. I lost 10 stone 10 years ago and have put it back on and more even after having skin removal.

    Before I did it for looks, this time I've proved I truly can't care about that to get this bad again, but this time it's for health. 2 pregnancies have left me with high blood pressure and 2 young children who desperately need me. I need to do this. I'm 40 in 2015.

    Hello and welcome! Have you seen that under the heading "Slimming Clubs" there's a section specially for people with a lot to lose? It's called WEMITTs which stands for We Mean It This Time! It's a very active part of the forum, and I'm sure you'll find lots of support there if you start a diary. I had ten stone to lose myself when I joined here, and the forum has been a big help. Good luck. xx

    I'd second that - come on over to the WeMitts section, there are lots of larger people at various stages of their weight loss. Tracy's a shiny example of what can be achieved with willpower and support. We can't give you willpower (oh, if only!) but we can give you support

    Hello!
    I feel your pain, I lost 10 stone 4 lbs 4 years ago and have regained almost all back since then - I have two daughters, 9 year old and a 14 month old. It is important for me too to be healthy and active and provide a good role model for them. Bring it on, we CAN do it and keep it off this time! xxx
    If at first...xxx
    Lost 10st 4lb July 2009 to March 2010 on LL & Exante, slowly regained all except 5lbs since, restarted Exante June 2014.

    NSV - down 2 belt notches
    NSV - down another 2 belt notches
    NSV - need to make some more holes in belt- 5 inches between latest belt hole and starting one

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I lost 7.5 stone about 3 years ago on LL and have regained most of it in that time. I am totally kicking myself and wish I had spent more time in the maintenance phase instead of just wanting to return to food...

    Good luck and I'm here if you ever need a natter!
