    Restarting Again -In need of support

    Hi all. It's been a while since I have posted or regularly used the support here. I first signed up here following a divorce over 7 years ago, lost the weight, changed my lifestyle and managed to keep it off until 2012 when things slowly started creeping back up and my lifestyle changed. What can I say..I met a man who came in to my life and who I am now married to. Unfortunately dating and being with someone and living with them has meant all the hard work has been reversed. Eating together at home and eating out has led to weight gain. Getting too comfortable and being less active. I am sure you have heard it all before and for some of you, may sound very familiar. I have also recently miscarried and although was just under 3 months pregnant have managed to put on half a stone during the miscarriage which came with complications in itself. So as none of my clothes fit and I have gone from a small size 14 (probably would have fit in to a size 12 but preferred the comfort of a size 14) to a large size 18, enough is enough. Or should I say that's how I feel now until I fall to the comfort of food. I have not decided which diet I am going to follow but I am considering signing up to weight watcher meetings. I have some exante shakes leftover from a previous attempt so will probably start using them and then may just stick to calorie counting or weight watchers. If anyone else is wanting to buddy up with regular posts then they would be welcomed. Will continue posting and will aim to post daily. Let's see how week one progresses.

    I could certainly do with a buddy, plan in starting loosely over the next couple of days and more seriously in the coming weeks.

    Hi rhubarb cakes. Thanks for the reply and would be good to buddy up. I have made it through day 1 of simply making better choices and watching what and how much I eat. No exercise but small steps. Are you going to follow a particular diet? I am aiming for a pound a week minimum. Let's see...

    Just calorie counting at present and hope to start introducing exercise in the next couple weeks. I am aiming to lose a stone and a half by Christmas. The other aim is to log in to minimins once a day to remind me of my aim and to gain support and motivation. Thinking of signing up to a weekly weightwatchers class but I am still off work until next week because of the miscarriage so only just starting to get some normality back in to life. Will probably join when back at work and also aiming to get back into the gym in the next couple of weeks too. Do you know how much you want to lose? If there is anyone else that is restarting and wanting to post weekly losses then please post here. I think I will post weigh ins on Mondays. Xoxo

    I read your post and just wanted to wish you so well. It's so hard to get started when you've been through it before, especially when it's been quite a few times of starting, achieving and then watching all that effort get consumed again. I've been there and I'm not a success by any means. I've probably lost and gained 10 stone over the last few years and it's affected every bit of my life. I am joining SW tomorrow night and I know that there is a voice in my head that says 'why bother?' because I know I've been here before and it's changed nothing in the end. But starting over is a brave this to do - to know that this time, you've got so far to go and so much to prove, to yourself more than to anyone else. Self reflection is a good thing - look at why and how you start to go wrong and start to give in and see how you can stop that from repeating itself again. Come on here. write a post, instead of getting some food, or get a playlist on your iPod of motivational speeches and walk around for an hour listening to them. Find what works in those moments and try - that's all you can do, try. But just remember you are not alone and people here will help and support. So many of us know how you feel - you are not alone in this. This time 2 years ago, I'd just lost 5 stone, come back from Paris, completed my first triathlon, was in Size 16 clothes (almost 14) and was happier, healthier and more confident than ever. Now I've regained all that weight, get out of breath walking up stairs, struggled to fasten a Size 22 pair of pants a few days ago and would hide away rather than go somewhere like Paris. Life is so different now to what it was. And in the process I have lost or damaged things and possibilities that meant so much to me. I'm here if you need me lovely. x

    Aww zendognine.._i can relate to everything you have written and will keep an eye out for your posts. Well done on signing up to slimming world. I attended 1 slimming world class and got very confused so didn't continue. I have looked up weight watchers meetings and hoping to sign up. Also hubby got my bike out and gave it a good checking over re tyres and gears etc as it has been collecting dust for just under 2 years so that's good to go. It's just me that needs to start. I return to work in a few days which I am dreading as will be very overwhelming as been off nearly 3 months. The diet hasn't gone well this week but I have decided to be kind to myself as this is my first TOTM since finishing the miscarriage. I am happy as means body is restoring itself finally. I have also been very hormonal so the floodgates have been open. Here's hoping we can all achieve what we desire and be healthy again. You had amazing results and you will get them again. I have been here before too and I just want to be bmi 27 or 26 as although still overweight I could do anything and didn't feel self conscious etc. I look forward to reading more about your journey. We can do it! Xoxo

    Couldn't weigh in yesterday as ended up at the hospital. Have weighed in this morning at 14st 9 1/4 lbs. It's a start I guess. Now if I can lose at least a pound every week I will get there. Hope everyone is having a good day xoxo

    Hi, I am new to this site but I can relate to a lot of what has been said on this thread. I am disabled by arthritis and fibromyalgia and am very immobile to the point of being housebound when alone. I was 20.2 at my largest and as I am not able to exercise I have learned that the only route that works for me is by VLCDs. I went down to 11.8 with Lighterlife and here I am back on the hamster wheel trying to lose the lbs that have crept back on.
    I have been on SW for 5 weeks. I have given it 100% and have lost just 3lbs so I'm now back on a VLCD. This time I'm trying shake that weight. It's less than half the cost of Lighterlife and I have researched it and there are some good reviews showing good results. Fingers crossed it will work for me too. Five weeks of SW have left me feeling a bit low and like a failure. I hope that next week I can post a weight loss that is more encouraging.
