Newbie starting over again need encoragement.
Hi everyone Im Maggie, I used to go to classes, but couldnt stick at going, Ive been trying to lose weight for years literally. Ive got all the sw books, and am going to try with the help of this forum to do it at home. Im 20 stone, and initialy want to get down to 18 for starters. I have a lovely choccie labrador dog, who helps me with walking. What finaly did it was this weekend, I was teaching him to swim in the sea, it was lovely, but I felt gigantic in my cossie, and so awkward ! I really need some encouragement, I know I have to think positively, and know that it is possible to lose weight, despite all my past failures. My mother suffers with very chronic arthritis and is in a lot of pain, I know I risk having the same problem in my old age, if i dont get the weight off. Thanks everyone, look forward to hearing from you all, Maggie xx
