in need of a friend :-(
hi anyone who reads this is using this as a way of release.
ive tried talking to my friend but knowone understadns unless there in the same position.
ive been doing slimming world on and off for years but restarted november with full motivation and commitment. i recieved my 1 and half stone award and since ive lost all motivation and commitment :-(
i eat good teas but snack on chocolate and crisps or just over eat on syns and think i'll start tmoz.
i really need someone who i can chat to and try to motivate each other, i feel a loser asking for a friend but desperate times eh!!!
good luck to everyone else on their journeys xx

Hi mission, sorry to hear you are feeling so low. Please don't eat yourself up about it. We are all here because we struggle with our weight and temptation, we all have days when we lose motivation or simply give up. But look how far you have come - you have lost ONE AND A HALF STONE!!! Imagine how you would be feeling right now if you hadn't bothered to start back in November and were still 1.5 stone heavier than you are now. You have shown yourself that it can be done, but you have also faced up to the fact that it is not always easy. Try not to see yourself in a cycle of having given up. Draw the line under the extra syns, the chocolate and crisps and get back on track. When you do, don't keep reminding yourself that you had a wobble, rather keep reminding yourself about why you are doing this and how strong you are. Good luck hun X
I hear you, I've been feeling the same over the past week or two and it worries me, as I recognise this as my usual slippery slope xx
I've been there maybe even still there this is my third proper attempt at SW lost 3 stone over the last couple of years and lost motivation xmas time and have but 2 stone back on. :mad: Its tough but we can do it!!! I rejoined last week and need to stay on track this time. I had a bbq today and made loads of sw friendly food plus some other stuff for the non dieting people. Was really good food wise at the bbq but just sat and finished off a pack of pringles after everyone had gone....why??? Your not a loser but we will lose this weight!
I totally understand you. This is like my 100th attempt at losing weight. Usually when I reach a stone lost I tend to slip back into my old habits.
Can you think of ways to keep you motivated? One thing I've done is get two glass jars and some glass pebbles. In one jar is the weight I've lost (1 glass pebble is 1 lb) and in the other jar is the weight I have left to lose. It puts everything in perspective and I can stare at them when I feel tempted to go off plan! I've also got a pair of black jeans that I want to fit into so I try them on to remind myself of where I need to be.
It is hard sometimes, I think a lot of people here will understand how you are feeling - I know I do! This is an incredibly friendly and supportive forum- lots of friends here!
I'm sure there are many people here who are in need of a SW friend, it isn't always easy & that's why I love this forum there is always somebody to make you feel better when you are down.
Have you started a diary? I find that keeps me on track & also people will start comment in your diary you can say how you are feeling & get the support you need. I'd also start subbing to other diaries as well to get idea & 'meet' new friends.
I echo Michelle above. Keep a diary and you will find people follow it and can offer advice and support. Your triumph will come from feeling like this yet not giving up. For me that was the difference in slimming world. If I had a blip or felt low I had the flexibility to maybe give in to cravings but in a structured way so I didn't feel out of control and then would get back on the bike and carry on. In the past feeling like that for me would have signalled the end of it all or I'd give up having lost a good amount but not quite enough if you know what I mean.
I love over the idea of the glass jars and pebbles btw!!!
I will be your friend and it's not sad asking for a friend I think it's really brave of you. Im relatively New at this so we can help each other. Good luck hun and stay positive
I totally get where you're coming from. I restarted in January full of motivation. Managed to lose a stone and a half and got my Club 10. Then over the space of a weekend life got in the way and that motivation switch in my head just turned off! For the past four weeks I have managed to put 8lbs back on and just can't get back on track. Im miserable and obsessing about how much of a loser I am.
Need to get my focus back but thats just so hard sometimes...
You've done so well so far, Dont beat yourself up over a little slip. Get back on it you'll be fine 😁 we're here if u need to chat.
You can do it,in fact let's do it together!!! 😊
What was your reason for joining this time?
Write it down, laminate it and stick it to the fridge.
Hi, Please don't feel bad, and your not a loser for wanting support. Everyone here need support, and someone to talk to. Especially me, I need this, and Facebook groups to keep me motivated.
You have done amazingly well, and you should be proud. Look back at any photos you have of your beginning weight and take one now, and compare the difference.
Plus, look at the goals you have achieved. Amazing.
I'm here if you need someone to talk to, like everyone.
Most of us have felt like this at one point or another I think, so don't feel bad at all! :)
Try to focus not so much on what you're currently losing, but what you've already lost. I sometimes feel a bit stuck in the mud and I find that visual things help me, like the chalkboard thing that say "__ lbs lost __ to go.
You've done so well so far, don't give up! :) xxxx
