    Hi, I've always been overweight and I want to lose about (or just over) half of my body weight too, so in a similar boat and I'm around the same age, I can also identify with the self loathing.

    I rejoined this week, I usually join, leave, gain weight, re-join, and so on, but this time I'm hoping that buying the 6 week countdown might keep me there a bit longer than the usual 2-3 weeks, if so, I'll buy another 6 weeks and keep on going.

    How's this week going for you? I always find the second week the hardest. x

    Hi yes really everyday is struggle when the heads not right...second week a struggle...but always a little better than how I would be if I wasn't doing it at all...I'm just sick of wasting my whole life... I should've been slim a long time ago.. Then I wouldn't have ****ed up my immune system and have bad skin..so even if I ever miraculously lost the weight is have loose spotty pigmented skin.. Apologies if your having tea ;-(

    Hi, hon, glad you found the right place to post. You can definitely do this! Your story sounds very similar to mine, I've struggled with my weight all my life, with 21.5 stone being my heaviest. This site has been instrumental in losing the excess 10 stone that I needed to, so keep coming on here for support and believing you can do it. xx

    Hiya! Well, I started in 2011 at the age of 49 - one of my knees had gone on me the year before due to osteoarthritis and it was just getting worse and worse. So I went to my GP as the practice nurse had previously suggested Orlistat. They gave me that, which isn't miraculous but may have helped a bit, and I just started calorie counting using MFP. Basically plodded along doing CC ever since! I don't exercise due to my shopping list of health issues, I just count the old calories and hope the scales are kind, lol. Not very exciting, I'm afraid, just a tale of a middle aged woman finally deciding enough was enough. I've found this site so incredibly helpful during the process, I've "met" some great people along the way and we've cheered one another on through the ups and downs - it's really great.

    This is me:

    I really hope you can get the same inspiration and support from the lovely people on here that I always have. xx

    Hi Linda, I rejoined SW this week at 22st 9.5lb (I started WW at 24st last year and switched to SW this week) I'm feeling the same, it is a struggle, but it will get easier. x

    I'm going to use my 10% as my first mini goal (20st 5lb) and getting under 20st as my first big target, I really want to be in the 'teens' again, but I've got lots of little mini-mini goals along the way, like BMI drops and I desperately want to get into the 21's asap.

    What about you? x

    Oh, and I've just joined the 50lb Summer Challenge (just below this thread), although as I'm a late starter mine's the 42lb challenge, lol, why not join in and see if it helps to keep you motivated. x

    Oh thank you, that's very kind. Well done on getting back into the teens - those small milestones are so important, aren't they? Like moving from one BMI band to another, going down the stone brackets etc. It's always best to have mini goals as well as your main target, it stops it feeling so daunting. You'll get that 2 stone off in no time - I found it surprising how quickly the time passes. xx

    You're already in the 'teens', I'm very jealous!

    That 2st (or 1st 11.5 as it is already!) will be off before you know it, and you'll be onto the next two, but I read a quote yesterday, "Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in your way of your doing it, the time will pass anyway, we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use", I get so despondent sometimes thinking about how far I have to go and how long it'll take, so I'm keeping this in mind now.

    You are sounding in control, and even if you don't feel it, fake it until it happens!

    I've just read that it's your birthday on the 50lb summer challenge thread- so Happy Birthday to you!
