So as the title says I'm sort of a newbie in that I've been on here a while, but used a different user name and I've done all the diets slimming world, Cambridge, slim and save and I never ever stick to it. EVER! And I'm sick of not being able to stick to anything. I've been trying to lose weight since I had a child in 2009 and ended up putting on 3st more instead of actually losing it.
I started Slim and save a few weeks ago to get me going and I've put on all the weight I lost, which I found out this morning and was really broken hearted about it but should have known it would happen really. I looked in the mirror this morning and actually just felt so disgusted at myself that I wanted to cry because I've let myself get this way. I have a total of 9st to lose and it just seems so unreachable that's like a whole person, and I need to lose all that. Anyway after getting upset I got angry and gave myself a stern talking too.
I need to realise it isn't going to happen overnight. While meal replacement diets may work for others it isn't going to work for me (I love food far too much). What will work for me is weight watchers. It will work because I have the apps on my phone (this was the deciding factor over SW) I have the magazines on the pad and I have the fire in my belly (among other things)! Because I didn't start the day on weight watchers I'm not technically starting today but I have been eating healthier to prepare for it. I am doing it online as the meetings just aren't for me, I've tried them before and hated it.
So this is a fresh start for me which is why I made a new account. No looking back and hopefully me sticking to this and this time next year being a lot lighter than what I am!
I look forward to getting to know you all
