Starting- I have got to do this!!!!
For the last few years I was a serial yo-yo dieter and it made me extremely unwell.
Last year I decided to stop it, after becoming unwell and realising it was damaging my mental health. I also split my ex after seven years together and lost a bit of weight. I also quit minimins for a while and decided to live my life for a bit and went out partying!
I then got promoted at work, left my family in Harrogate and moved to Scarborough as a Hotel Manager for a well known coach company. Unfortunately over this time I began to feel unwell. I have recently been told that I have pre diabetes and I really need to get my head straight and sort myself out. My health needs to come first.
I haven't weighed myself since January 2013 and know I'm not at my heaviest (14.7) I need to buy myself some scales too! After speaking to my doctors I am going to do Slimming World but take it extremely slowly. No huge unachievable goals or anything. I just need a good and healthy life, I have an extremely active job but I need a bit of stability.
Time to get my head sorted and finally complete something that I should have done at least 6 years ago!!
Anything to help is most welcome! If any of you need any help or advice or anything then please don't hesitate to let me know.

I have just seen on BBC news regarding a new diet that is being trialled by Diabetes UK where there would be an 800 calorie limit over a period of time and this would reverse the effects of type 2 diabetes.
obviously this is wonderful news but I'm not sure if it would work! Mind you they wouldn't be able to be able to secure the funding without plenty of tests first!

Well done you, taking control of your weight once again. Good stuff!! It's a good idea to take it slow and not expect too much too soon x
OMG - long time no see. See the attached article link re; type 2 diabetes

Maybe you could try combining JUDDD or 5:2 diet with slimming world, since you were very good at JUDDD before.
Sorry to hear you and your other half split, but nice to know you have had a promotion.
Jo disappeared from the JUDDD forum not long after you, I wonder how she is getting along now.
