    The mountain won't be climbed by sitting at the bottom!

    Ashamed, scared, in pain, out of control, uncomfortable, reclusive.... This is how my weight makes me feel and there is only myself that can change that. And oh how I want to change my weight!
    Seems a very easy thing to write but instead of thinking it, I NEED TO DO IT!

    In the past I've tried WW with very little success- my weight meant i had so many points to eat I found it overwhelming! Sounds like a dream, I know, but after a busy day at work I'd often find I still had 15 points left at 9pm when all I wanted was to sleep.

    The thought of meal replacement shakes is enough to make me run to the nearest sweet shop so that is a certain no go for me.

    I've tried Atkins years but the side effects were too severe for me.

    I've had some success with SW in the past and enjoyed the plan so I'm going to try again. The difference this time is that I'm not joining group. The reason? I work shifts and sometimes can't make group fora few weeks at a time and often could only get weighed and not stay as had to get to work. I found when i could stay I benefited from the support but looking at this forum I think I'll get good support here, and that is 24/7.

    So today is the day my journey starts. I weighed myself this morning and cried tears of anger and shame. I look forward to getting on the scales in the future and crying tears of joy and pride.

    I am 18st 13lbs. I never want to read those numbers on the scales again. I have been heavier in the past and I have been far lighter. I know which I prefer, so here goes that first step up the mountain....

    Very few people .... even the top mountaineers climb mountains on their own..... but that's ok because you can climb that mountain with us....

    If you want a look at my dairy google this...... minimins what's on this princess's plate

    you can get to it that way xx

    And you need to stop feeling ashamed.... unless you got to that weight by eating babies.... you need to learn to love your self and your body because losing weight takes effort and we wont put that effort in for someone we don't love xx

    When you get to your target it will be the same body.... same muscles... same blood... same lungs... same heart.....

    So first weekend over and not so bad... would have been perfect if red wine didn't exist!
    Saturday was day one and I had no plans so could stick to plan 100% which I'm pleased to say I did. Sunday wasn't so successful but could have been a lot worse! I had friends round for lunch, always a boozy affair, and yesterday was no different in that sense. The major difference this time though was what I cooked... They all ate SW without knowing it! A delicious pasta bake made with quorn, mushrooms, spinach, onion and tomatoes and a really tasty salad. They all loved it, as did I. The Red wine flowed and I did partake but am not going to beat myself up about it. No more alcohol for this week is the pay off. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have cooked anything so healthy, we'd have had a really naughty pudding and I'd have joined in with the baileys at the end of the meal.

    I know it wasn't a perfect day but it was a much better day than it could have been and unlike in the past I'm not going to beat myself up about it... This time it is about forgiveness, but at the same time not needing to seek that forgiveness too often! Onwards and upwards. The mind set has changed and this time IT WILL WORK!!!

    You're sounding very positive and that's half the battle I think! I've just slinked back to SW after an 8 month absence (and a two stone gain! OMG!). It's definitely a good idea to read lots of diaries and forum posts and some of them are just so inspiring.

    Have you thought about giving yourself some mini goals to shoot for? I find that helps me a bit?

    Good luck to you anyway, and I'm now subscribed to your thread.

    I think just by replying to the thread it drops into your subscriptions.
