in need of help:(
Hello lovely slimming worlders.
Some of you may recognise me..
I have reached a real low, having gained all my weight back. I've had a rough year and just can't seem to stop. I've returned to class a few times but it seems to do more harm than good, so im seeking out support here.
I really, really need to get this weight off. It's making me really sad and holding me back. And I'm not a good role model to my daughter which is heartbreaking for me.
I think it'll be a long process.. but minimins was such a great source of support for me, I hope it'll be what I need this time. I am totally ashamed of myself.
P.s, how do I change my signature? ?
Hello. I'm on my iPad so can't see your stats but I sympathise with you completely. I'm just coming back to the plan after 8 months of complete pigging out and gaining all my weight back again. :-(
I'm only a week in but I lost 6.5 lbs last week and I'm sure part of that success is down to returning to minimins! Writing a diary helps me immensely - it keeps me on track and accountable in some way.
Good luck Fern and welcome back x
Fern really well done on getting back to it, that takes courage :) good luck
You can change your signature by clicking into 'Subscribed threads' (along the very top bar on the page) then scroll down on the left hand side there's a 'edit signature' option, click on there and when you've changed it, press 'save signature'.

Well done on coming back. :)
Hi, good luck for your journey ahead. You're in the right place :-)
Thank you Hippopotamum - Somehow I sussed it just after posting!
Thanks to all who replied. I'm going to spend some time floating about the board and maybe even starting a new diary.
Hippopotamum, When you re lost the weight, was it harder? I can't get over the difference.
I was also very gutted to remember I only had 1.5st to loose after baby was born. .. how stupid I was, should have got my act together then.
Welcome back- I am a long term member on here so that should tell you something!
Wipe the past behind and go forward with this journey. All the best! Xx
If I'd paid attention I would have spotted that. :p

So try not to focus on what could have been and where you were and try to just make this your new starting point.
I lost 6st the first time, but I gained double (12 stone!) back, and you've not gained anywhere near that much, so you're doing great! lol!
I don't think it was harder to lose the next time, but I've been to slimming clubs loads of times and not lost anything because I wasn't in the right frame of mind. The twice I did lose substantial amounts of weight something just seemed right, my head was in the right place, and as you'll know, once you're there it's half the battle. I'm hoping to stay that way this time, as I have a long way to go... again! lol! :) x
I'm back to where i was before with an added 3 lbs so i know exactly how you feel. I just keep trying to remember how good it felt when i lost all the weight, the energy, the compliments and the smaller clothes! I want it back so I'm starting again and its achievable. Mind over matter! :)
I'm only a newbie so my input may not mean so much but be proud in the knowledge you've done it before so you can definitely do it again :D good luck x
Oooh, I've just seen your sig. Do you have a new baby? :D
Welcome back Fern! I remember you - you did really well and you can again, so don't worry. I put all my weight back on too and am now battling to get it off again - sounds like there's a few of us in the same boat. Good luck and hope to see more of you on the boards.
I remember you well. I was around when you were. Like you, I had big changes in my life and put all the weight back on, plus a few pounds more. Something has clicked in my head just recently -possibly a holiday in Tenerife in September to look forward to - and the weight has started coming off again, so I hope the same happens for you.
Krupskaya & tracejovi .. HI!! ..Are elle/honeyoc/britmum still about too? And the rest :-D
Sorry to hear your in the same boat Tracey, it's a bit **** isn't it.
Ready to get cracking tomorrow. Let's get it done.
Mumpsimus, no.. not really lol .. She's 2.5 now. It's a bit mad... was here pre pref.. through and just after then lost the plot with the plan. She's an absolute gem, she's my best friend! We'd like to add to the family and so need to get back on track big-time.
Xxxxx thanks for the warm welcome ladies.. tis like coming home!
