    It's Now or Never - Loobielou1983's Diary

    So I made the decision to re-join Slimming World yesterday for the umpteenth time (I've been a member 3/4 times this year alone...so I'm sure you get the picture). I was 31 last month and I'm the heaviest I have ever been, and that just depresses me to no end. I've had a battle with my weight for as long as I remember, I recall attending my first slimming group - Weight Watchers - when I were 18 years old. I was bullied throughout school, not so much because I was described as fat but mostly because I was 'big' and 'hefty' looking...I'm of stocky build anyway. Anyway, to get more up to recent days...In December 2013 I had a mental breakdown and ended up in hospital for six weeks - I'm on medication still, some of the medication has a side effect of weight gain and other horrible hormone related side effects which I have suffered from. When I see my psychiatrist they agree I haven't recovered from the trauma of my breakdown. I'm really considered if I don't do something about my weight now I'm going to end up back in hospital again soon but with no hope of ever getting right.

    I know we are all here because we want to lose weight, and I want to reach out to the minimins community to offer my support as well as receive the support of others. Thank you for having me as a member, here's to the start of a long - but worthwhile journey.

    Day One (09/09/14)

    I re-joined my local SW with my mum - we tend to stick to it if we do it together, but then at the same time we are our own worst enemies if one of us has a craving for something naughty!! My consultant is lovely and gave me a welcoming smile, we even joined in the new members talk although it was the 3rd or 4th one we have had this year. After deciding I was going to rejoin SW I was really apprehensive about going back at all, so I was surprisingly calm about going back. I stayed to group - which is something I think is imperative for me to do to lose weight as I lack willpower and motivation at the best of times. I left the group feeling prepared for the week, and armed with my lunch and snacks for work and off I went.

    Overall in my first day I did get hunger pangs despite eating what is, in my opinion, an acceptable amount of food - I ate a good mix of free and super free food and I had 2 litres of water to drink along with herbal tea.

    I did stick to it though, and for that I'm proud =)

    Day two (10/09/14)

    So after spending most of the night peeing from all of the water I had drank throughout the day I was feeling pretty tired and had a 12-20:00 shift to look forward to I went equipped to work with what I thought would be enough food....how wrong was I?! I felt really hungry throughout my shift and even ended up sampling one of my colleagues rice and lamb dishes (thankfully no syns in it). After work I had my tea, which I thoroughly enjoyed and some fresh fruit and finally felt full.

    I'm really hoping these hunger pains stop throughout the day!! I think, when I get paid, I'm going to take more fruit in with me...and maybe buy some mugshots too.

    I hate not having enough food with me, I now have a fruit bowl on my desk that I keep stocked up, places like Lidl & Aldi have fruit cheapish & I find it nice & fresh.

    Could you eat more at meal times to stop you feeling hungry in between meals?

    Hi Lou :-)
    Good luck to you & your mum with your weight loss! Sorry to hear of your troubles, hope joining sw helps in the whatever ways it can x
    Could the hunger pains be sugar crashes? I know if I've overdone the choc the day after I feel starving but its my blood sugars! Usually settles after a few days for me!
