    My Long Journey...Need to loose half my body weight...and some!!!

    This is my second attempt at loosing weight through slimming world, I have lost weight before cal counting.

    I am bigger than I have ever been 23.2 stone (As of this morning ) and a size 24 on top and 26 on the bottom-and they are tight I have clothes from a size 8-26 in my wardrobe, and want to fit in to some of them again.

    The main reason I want to be healthy is for my little boy-I get out of breath carrying him upstairs- hes almost 2 and I weigh more now than when I was full term and pregnant

    I have put on over 5 stone since oct 12 when I was put on anti psychotic medicine, I came off in july and lost almost 2 stone- but have gained it back and some, when I had to go back on it in October last year I am also on a high dosage of anti depressant plus sleeping tablets.

    I like the idea of cooking LOTS of family meals from scratch.

    I am starting slimming world tomorrow and pointers and help would be most welcome as I am doing it from home-I cant really afford the classes, and I dont tend to go out unless I am with somone else.

    Looking forward to my journey and meeting some new friends xxx

    Hello Jules and good luck with your weight loss journey. There is lots of support for you here. We are all in the same boat and understand the ups and downs of the path we are all on. I found it all a little daunting when i first started the SW plan. What can I eat?? I actually ate nothing the first day for fear of getting it wrong but after a week or so it became much easier and now, after a couple of months, it is a way of life that feels right.

    i will give you my opinion on how to start but please don't take my words as the only way. Read lots of threads on minimins to find out how others coped with starting out. I would say, at first, don't worry about fancy recipes, just feed yourself and your son on simple, home cooked food. Fresh or frozen veggies with low fat meats for dinner. For breakfast I eat fat free yogurt with any kind of fruit chopped up and stirred in. For lunch I have homemade veggie soup. Basically I throw any veg I have (whatever is on offer when I shop) into a big saucepan with some chicken or veg stock, onion, garlic, herbs if you fancy. Cook it up then liquidise or use a stick blender. I divide it into portions and freeze it. I have that with a 60g slice of wholemeal bread and find it fills me up and is yummy! For snacks I eat fruit. What a brilliant start for your little son. Good healthy food for a growing boy, full of vitamins and minerals and low in sugar and fats.

    In addition to the above I have a little milk in cups of tea or coffee and sometimes cheese instead if my milk intake for the day was low. Then there are syns. It's a nice system because it means nothing it off limits as long as you stick to your syn allowance. If there is something you really crave you know you can have some.

    Hope that helps and that others will tell you their version of the plan so you can work out what is best for you. Whatever you decide, keep posting and take advantage of the lovely people here who will help you all the way.

    I have asked hun, but they all seem to cause weight gain and going through a wobbly patch just now so know its not the right time to change, currently waiting for an appointment to see my psychiatrist again and have a meds review also coming up so will ask again. I know what you mean about being unstable. HUGS xxx

    Just back from the cinema-only the second film hubby and I have seen since little man was born ( and hes almost 2 ) didn't have any popcorn just a diet coke and took a packate of crisps but didn't really want them so they are still in my bag early night I feel.

    I go to the gym tomorrow with my carer, should burn a few cals.

    well that sounds like a lovely evening welldone on resisting temptation the more you do it the stronger you will feel.Just looking at your height & goal weight etc.. we are the same height was just wondering if you might feel more positive if you set your goal differently? For example before I had my last baby hes nearly 8 months I got from 16.13 to 13.4 with calorie counting & even though I was still classed as overweight I felt fantastic & could fit into some lovely clothes.It is a state of mind I guess I could get down to 9 stone & be miserable as sin we never know until we get there lol .I hope you have a great week & you will have a fantastic first weight loss which will spur you on xx

    Thanks hun to be honest I put 10 stone just as a round number, I really want to get down to a size 14 ( as have a zillion clothes in that size!) but its been so long since I have been that size ( as am a 26 bottom and 24 on top now) I dont know what weight that will be.

    My first goal is 21 stone, which I would like to be at by my birthday towards the end of may_know I am in this for the long hall

    Eve out with hubby was lovely, he has been so supportive of my MH problems he really is my hero.

    Gym this morning with my carer 330 cal burnt and did 5 weight machines saw a lady from near where my parents live and rather than hide and make no eye contact I spoke to her and introduced my carer. Positive little steps.

    Also dropped Little man at nursery this afternoon, so a 20 min walk al body magic I guess.
