    1st week back, AGAIN! Daunted but determined, 14st to loose, in it for the long haul!

    Hi all,

    after i I posted in strugglers and restarters the following post I was recommended to this forum, so after weeks of hovering, and 1st week on SW, I have popped in to say hi. The post gives an idea of where my head was at a few weeks back and why I want to shift this weight for good this time. I am feeling a bit more positive than I was, but need the positivity to continue, and keep going. The amount I have to loose scares me and I'm embarrassed by how many times I have yo yo'd. Feeling guilty too my daughter deserves more.

    However I have been 100% on plan all week and feel hopeful about weigh in Monday. More than anything it's good to be in control of food again

    anyway, this is me, checking in, trying to keep my head in the game! Hope you are all doing good whatever plan you are on, we can do this!
    Here we are again :-( please let me be loosing weight for good this time

    Hi,

    firstly sorry, I saw the forum title and have come over all ranty!

    i am struggling and my goodness I have re-started diets so sooooooo many times I'm just sick of it. Sick of yo-yo'ing all the time. Slimming world, soups, weight watchers, fitness pal online, my own diet, replacement shakes, I have tried and failed. Well I lost weight and failed to keep it off.

    Yo yo diet all my life and then 2.5 years ago I lost over three stone on SW to fall preggers with my gorgeous daughter who is now 20 months old. I was still dangerously overweight when pregnant. I needed a c-section and contracted an infection that almost killed me. Not totally my weights fault but not a help. Last year I lost 3 stone again at slimming world to put it all back on again.

    My my little one is fast turning into a little girl and I want to give her a brother or sister (sooooo broody!) and I want to be able to run about anf play with my little one and not be such a risk to my health. 14 stones to loose. I feel like a disgrace and so guilty I have got like this and with a little one to look after too I feel like a horrid mum.

    Please she I need support to stick to plan long term. I need to get my head In The game and go for it.

    Any help advice welcome. Sorry for the rant x

    Hi Leanne, welcome. Please don't feel you're a disgrace. You're aware of your issues and are seeking help. That's the most important thing.

    You're in good company here. Everyone's been really friendly and supportive since I joined a few weeks ago. I'm doing SW and I weigh on Mondays as well. Fingers crossed for a good result for us both this week x

    Hey! Another Slimming World person here!

    I have to say, it's the best eating plan I've encountered (if only because I can eat steak and chips and still lose weight!)

    If people are a disgrace for trying and trying, then that would be everyone in this world. You're back on it, and now you won't get off with all of us on here to help you out

    Thank you for your kind words Jamsie and Dragonfly,

    i do feel a bit better now I am on plan. I guess I struggle with looking too much in to the past generally but your right though, it's what I'm doing now that matters so I will try and focus on my positive start getting back on plan. Hope it shows on the scales Monday!

    here's to a great weigh in next week for us all and here's to not beating ourselves up either when we have a bit of a stumble ( she tells herself very sternly lol!)

    Hey TraceyG,

    thank you you for the recommendation & kind words
    I think this is def the place for me! Everyone seems very friendly already, and it's good to get support off of others in the same boat with a lot of weight to loose too.

    its also brill to see successes like your weight loss, WOW that is amazing. I hope to be counted among target members/maintainers in a few years too, your loss is an inspiration x

    Another slimming world member here

    You should be proud of the fact that you're trying to do something about your weight, so regardless of how many times you've been up and down, the main thing is that you keep trying and that in itself should be something to be very proud of

    Hope your weigh in goes well for you tomorrow xxx

    Hi - I haven't been on this board before but saw a post on the main diary page where I usually hang out and thought I'd pop over and say hi and saw your diary. I feel sad that you think you're a disgrace - you are definitely not.

    The fact you want to be healthy for your daughter says a lot about the kind of person you are. I can't say I understand what it's like to have that much weight to lose but at any weight, if you really want it, you'll make it happen.

    Look at Tracy - get the impression she's a bit of a legend ;-) Very best of luck and I hope you get to where you want to be.

    Thank you Blondcat, that's very flattering and made me blush! I'm really more a plodder than a legend, having just ploughed on doggedly over the last few years, and I truly believe that if I can do it anyone can!! xx

    Thank you all for such a warm welcome it means a lot.

    1st weigh in tomorrow eek! Have definitely enjoyed the food I have eaten and being in control of that food .
    It has been hard getting used to cooking again. Don't get me wrong- I enjoy cooking, but with little one around and currently unwell with a cold, finding the time is tricky. I think the more I do it the easier it'll get though. And I have a few things in the freezer for those manic days too which feels good.

    Huge Thanks again. Will let you know what the scales say tomorrow!
