    For people who are thinking about giving up...

    If you're thinking about giving up because you keep messing up, you think you'll never lose weight, you miss certain foods etc...I plea with you, please don't you can do it.
    I have been a serial dieter for 10 years, I have gained 3 stone during that time and diets haven't worked for me. For the first time I have actually lost some weight on a diet, that is slimming world!!
    I have messed up so many times, not just the odd days but for a week at a time! I have been close to giving up so many times. But each time I have picked myself up and carried on. I have lost 10 pounds since just after Christmas and if you look at my diary you'll have a full appreciation for how many times I have fallen off the wagon and then got back on.
    If you fancy eating something naughty try and make a sw equivalent first, check out the recipe forum and you'll find a sw equivalent for nearly all foods both savoury and sweet.
    And if you're close to quitting, come on this forum, have a moan and let others help you through it with their support and advice, people on here are great.

    If anyone else wants to add their thoughts to help others who are struggling please do xxx

    Thank you so much for this, it was just what I needed as I have been feeling like this today, thinking maybe I'm just supposed to be this weight and to accept it and that I just can't do it.

    Like you said though, I will get tomorrow out the way, chase that wagon and jump straight back on it.

    What a great post Josiecat - and such good advice!

    I too have batted about from diet to diet over the years, and have piled on the weight after having my gorgeous babies, but 2011 will be a year for me!!

    The way I am viewing slimming world, is that its not a diet for me, its a change to the way I am eating - AND its for the long haul - its not a fad, if i want something there is nothing to say I cant have it - you have to be realistic dont you?? Life goes on, there are meals out, half terms, nights out, kids parties etc - I know how i work, if i feel deprived then i get grumpy and then i lose motivation, but sw gives you the opportunity not to be devrived and thats why I know its the plan for me

    I am very relaxed about it, and I think thats the key for me, I am putting zero pressure on myself - Yes I want to do this really badly, and I will, and I will do my very best - I am taking it seriously but relaxed too if that makes any sense?? It does to me, but thats not saying much

    I felt like giving up a couple of weeks ago , i felt like i'd lot re-gained and lost the same three pounds forever, i'm glad I didn't though cos I pushed a little harder through my blip and am losing slowly but surely again. I also realised that it was worth going to groups because I would miss the new friends I've made. I have also found that the past few weeks I don't feel so stressed about food every minute of the day , like I have finally found my SW groove.
