New to SW - and internet forums! - feeling out there and little lost
I'm new to internet forums. I normally just read and research other peoples stories / advice etc.
So this year has been a complete change of life for me. My partner has been unable to work and it was down to me to go out there and get the money rolling in. I landed a full time local job that I really enjoy. I have gone from not "having" to work too "oh my if I don't work we don't have any thing.!!
My man (of 10 years) finally popped the question and we have arranged the date (deposit paid) for our special day and I HAVE to lose some weight.
I'm really not good at sticking to things, although so far this year I have managed to keep a job lol - only because I had to though. If it was down to choice I'm sure I wouldn't still be here just because of my lack of commitment I'm sure.
I have decided to give Slimming World ago, I'm due to register Wednesday morning. I have tried the online option before but as I'm useless at sticking to any thing I didn't do very well on it. I'm quite competitive and I'm hoping I can find some one to challenge as this seems to be what keeps me motivated.
Where there's a challenge I seem to stick to things better.
I find it really hard to picture myself in the future thinking yes i'll get there, I normally think along the lines of oh don't worry about it what will be will be.
There have been so many times when I wanted to lose weight and didn't bother then I feel really down and sluggish when I reach the date and I'm just the same. It's pure laziness and i'm really trying ways to retrain / reprogram my ways.
I'm thinking along the lines of hey, yeah I have changed, I never kept a job before - I have now, I never kept a diary before - I'm starting one now.
This year is a new me I can do this - It's the one day in my life that all eyes will be on me and I would love love love to look great. I just seem to lack the passion.
Any help / advice / challenges welcome this way.........

Today is the day isn't it? Good luck! Hope your first meeting goes well. I'm recently engaged and wanting to lose weight for the wedding too, I reckon we've got the motivation we need to do it.
