Hello, welcome to my little thread for my weightloss... I started slimming world 7 weeks ago, in the need to lose about 7 stone!!
I want to lose this weight because:
:- I dont want to be fat anymore!! (i have since i was in junior school!)
:- The rate I'm going I won't live as long as I could.
:- I want to be healthier & happier!
:- I want to be able to run around an play with my son & future children.
:- I want to be able to shop in 'normal' clothes stores. Not the 'fat' shops.
:- I NEED to loose the weight to help with my knee surgeries!
I nearly had gastric bypass surgery, i need to lose the weight as number 1, i am very over weight, 2 i need to lose it so i can have my knee/ligament surgery again as weight is a big problem with recovering. My consultant referred me to have it done, i was half way through my pre-op diet when i thought things through properly. I really wanted to try a healthy diet first before such major surgery at the age of 22. Ive done plenty other diets but they 'never worked' Well i cancelled my surgery an joined my local SW group.
Joined slimming world on 27th September 2011 - best decision i ever made!
