I am going to a wedding in May of next year and it is really really important to me that I don't look like the beached whale I do at the moment. The last wedding I went to was my brother's and I lost over 4 stone that time to get down to 9 stone 11. That was 3 years ago and since then I have retrained as a teacher, got my first teaching job, moved halfway across the country, found a new partner and moved in with him and his 3 year old daughter. Which has been a massive whirlwind and been totally great but it has meant that I have put on 2 stone!
I remember how much support this forum was last time, so here I am again to try to lose that weight. As I have until May next year I have a significant period of time to do it. I will be doing Slimming World, but not going to classes as I can't afford it. I am also going to try to go to the gym 2 or 3 times a week and cycle to work at least once a week.
As it happens last time I started on September 1st, so as that falls on a Monday this year, I think this bodes well and I will be starting on Monday with my first weigh in and straight onto the diet.
If anyone reads this and wants to offer some support, this would be much appreciated!
