    In need of some support / friendly advice xx

    Hello everyone, first of all I just want to say thank you for allowing me to be a member...I hope you can offer me some help. Since I was 19 (I'm 31 now) I've been a yo-yo member of Slimming World, tried Weight Watchers just the once and the whole counting points didn't work for me. This year alone I've joined and left a lovely Slimming World group 3/4 times because I've been disappointed with how slow my weight has come off - I used to lose weight really quickly but I've found, as I've got older, it's got slower and slower especially with the medication I was put on at the end of last year. I've always found myself frustrated and downheartened and quit...each time gaining more weight. I'm now at my heaviest and almost my most unhappiest and I recognise I need to go back...but I feel so ashamed to go back to the lovely group I have been a member of before. I wouldn't want to go to another group and, to be honest, the time of the group suits me. Do you think I'm being silly? Would it be a good idea to contact the consultant beforehand and voice my concerns or just go? I guess I'm worried what other people will think, as in the other members who go that will remember I have joined, left and rejoined so many times over the past 9 months. Thanks for reading, apologies for the long post xx

    Hi loobielou. Welcome to minimins. Of course you are not being silly. All your ideas about just turning up or even calling the consultant beforehand sound sensible. If slimming world is what you are comfortable with then take that first step and just go back. It sounds like you have a good group and that should help you get back on track. I have found that now that I am in my 30s losing weight is harder too but we can do it! X

    26th August 2014 - Starting Over...again!!
    2/9/14= -1.75lbs (14st 9 1/4)
    8/9/14= -2lbs (14st 7 1/4)
    20/9/14 =14st 7lbs on slimming world scales.
    27/9/14 = -5lbs, 14st 2lbs (1st wk on SW!)
    4/10/14 = -2lbs, 14 st (2nd wk on SW)

    1) get to under 14 stone
    2) go back to the climbing wall
    3) get to 13 st 7lbs
    4) book a guided bike ride- sky ride
    5) get to 13 stone
    If actually make it to 13 stone then will make more goals!
