    Newbie with 10+ stone to lose with SW and Hospital.

    Hello all, I'm Pippa and am in my 3rd week back at Slimming World, am also under the bariatric team at hospital. I was on Slimming World before and had just got to under 20 stone when I was diagnosed with cervical cancer, Between the meds and the 'f**k it I just want chocolate and ice cream' I managed to regain a percentage of that weight. But I am back on the road to health (hopefully) and so am back at the weightloss. I firstly want to lose weight as I need surgery to have my gallbladder removed and I would like to be at 19 stone maximum for that.... my next appointment is in January and secondly well I want to do it for me. I am fed up of being the fat friend.
    I am joining here as I need the support, my mother is doing SW with me... however has 3 stone to lose so doesn't quite get it and leads me down the naughty path to happily. I am in the midst of a rubbish willpower day, after a rubbish one yesterday also!!! so I need to work through this and not lose it.... some days I feel like SW is the wrong choice for me as I panic about weigh ins and get stressed about it so am tempted to follow the diet and only have my weigh ins at the hospital...
    I am aware I am just chatting now.....
    Is there anyone else here under the Bariatric team? How are you finding the journey? I was set a target of 14kgs to lose.... in 2 years which I find bizarre!
    I am sorry for such a long post, thank you for reading if you managed it, I look forward to getting to know you all xx

    Welcome Pippa! I've been following SW too, so far it seems to work for me but I do think losing weight and following any plan is really personal. You will find a plan that works for you, I need that accountability and going to group gives me that. Good luck on your journey

    If it doesn;t work for you - and that includes naughty temptation from your mum too - then it doesn't work! There's lots of other ways and we want the best for you - perhaps it's worth spending an afternoon having a flick through the various options and see what you think you can do?

    Welcome hun! Good luck - hope you're feeling better!
    Goal: Lose 7lb by October 31st

    Goal: Lose 6st 9lb before Christmas (to 20st)
