    Here we are again :-( please let me be loosing weight for good this time

    Hi,

    firstly sorry, I saw the forum title and have come over all ranty!

    i am struggling and my goodness I have re-started diets so sooooooo many times I'm just sick of it. Sick of yo-yo'ing all the time. Slimming world, soups, weight watchers, fitness pal online, my own diet, replacement shakes, I have tried and failed. Well I lost weight and failed to keep it off.

    Yo yo diet all my life and then 2.5 years ago I lost over three stone on SW to fall preggers with my gorgeous daughter who is now 20 months old. I was still dangerously overweight when pregnant. I needed a c-section and contracted an infection that almost killed me. Not totally my weights fault but not a help. Last year I lost 3 stone again at slimming world to put it all back on again.

    My my little one is fast turning into a little girl and I want to give her a brother or sister (sooooo broody!) and I want to be able to run about anf play with my little one and not be such a risk to my health. 14 stones to loose. I feel like a disgrace and so guilty I have got like this and with a little one to look after too I feel like a horrid mum.

    Please she I need support to stick to plan long term. I need to get my head In The game and go for it.

    Any help advice welcome. Sorry for the rant x

    Hi, hon. You might like to check out the WEMITTS part of the forum, under Slimming Clubs - it's specifically for people with a lot to lose, regardless of what plan they follow. It's great for motivation and support, as everyone on there is in it for the long haul - the forum name is short for We Mean It This Time, lol. Good luck! xx

    Loopyleanne: I just wanted to reply as it seems wrong to read and do nothing. I'm at the start of my latest journey too - having gone up and down, tried this and that, every diet, with bells on and some success followed by regains. I know it is so hard to restart as you come to it already feeling like you can't do it - I always think my best chance was the first chance, when it was new and I hadn't failed yet. I don't have children, but at 35, I am desperate to have them and the reason I don't is that my weight, and all the masses of baggage that comes with it, have put such a strain on my relationship that we can't even think about things like children and marriage (both of which mean more to me than anything in the world). You have a beautiful daughter but you can't do this for her. You have to do it for you lovely. I think you almost have to take everything else out of the equation - wanting to be a better mum and wanting another baby - and just focus on you. I am starting slimming world too (joining tomorrow) and I know I do best when I am supported - but I've had support from my bf and family and they've been so happy with I have lost and then had to deal with the fall-out when I gained it back. This time, I'm being a bit selfish. I'm not doing it for them - I am doing it for me and I am going to silence the voices in my head that say 'should' because the only word I need is 'can'. If you need support, come here. I'll happily listen anytime and there are others who will do the same. You can do it if you want to do it for you. It's not going to be easy (but things like this never are) but you absolutely can and that's what you can tell yourself every day before you even get out of bed - 'today, I can, I will'. Best of luck lovely.
