Here we are again...
I've been here before and used this forum a lot when I did Slimming World in 2012. I lost over 5 stone in 7months and got from nearly 20stone down to the 14s. But here I am again, I have gained all my weight back :sigh: and it's getting me down quite badly. I never realised how relationships can really put the pounds back on you, the last time I weighed myself I was back in the 19s and that was in March. I really don't dare weigh myself! I want to lose the weight I gained but I know it's going to be tougher as my other half says all the time he "loves me the way I am".
I moved to Sweden from England in December to live with my partner and it all went down hill from there, eating out a lot and him coming back from work with takeout food was all too good. I suffer badly with fatigue which is why I lost weight in the first place and I felt great, I could do so much more with myself without needing to sleep for a week to make up for it - this past month I have been wiped out with fatigue which made me realise I really need to do something about it. Slimming World won't be an option for me, and I can't do it online because I need the group support. I am going to start with cutting down portion sizes, cutting out all the fizzy drinks, less beer/wine and crisps - hopefully that can help push my weight down, I am going to set myself a small goal to lose half a stone in a month. It might seem quite a small goal, but I don't want to push myself too hard as I know when I set a goal and don't get it, I get disappointed. Since moving here I don't have as many people to talk with so I am hoping that MiniMins can help me keep motivated again!! :D
First things first, I need to buy a set of weighing scales lol. My boyfriend doesn't have any which in a way has done me good as I became a compulsive weigher when I was living at home still. I would find myself standing on the scales 2-3 times a day :confused: ?? I think I will have to get him to hide them from me!
If you can get to a boots with scales, they have ones where you pay 50p but get a print out that might help you keep track if you don't want to run the chance of being obsessed again :)
Welcome lovely! The changes you mentioned are all for the good and healthy before you even consider losing weight. And as for support groups then we're always here love :) xxxx

im here for you love you know that anyway good luck and take care x
How are you feeling love? :)
Sorry for not updating any sooner, had a busy weekend with the kids. Talked with my boyfriend today about wanting to lose weight, and he's very supporting and said he will help me out as much as he can with it. :) I was thinking about using the scales in our local pharmacy instead of buying some, good idea SparklePants, thanks :D
Chez, being home sick at first definitely didn't do me any good and I was eating a hell of a lot more due to that but I don't feel anywhere near as bad now. My family are going to come and visit me in July and also you can get cheap flights to England so I can go for a long weekend to still see everyone.
Hope you ladies have had a good weekend xx
This weeks food shopping done, bought lots of fruit, veg and also porridge! My other half is going to teach me to make it instead of eating toast for breakfast. Definitely feeling very and positive with myself right now :D
Yum! :D It's very easy to make in bulk and portion up to put in the freezer - then you just pull it out overnight and microwave it in the morning - awesome! :)
wow i think your amazing to have gone and moved there i would be homesick i know i would lolol
thats it hun your in the right frame off mind all your food shopping in and back on track here for you hun x x x x
Haven't posted in a while, but I finally got some scales and I've lost 5lbs this week :D feeling really happy and I've felt a lot more energetic as well. I've been going for my walks in the forest everyday (have no excuse as the weather is gorgeous) and also had my oats and fruit for breakfast. Also I have sorted my sleeping pattern out and made sure I've been up early and going to sleep at a better time. xx
Brilliant! :D Well done lovely xxx
well done love thats great x x
