10 stone to lose, and desperate to succeed

Hey everyone.. my name's Katie (or Kate) and I've restarted my slimming world diet that I previously lost 3 and a half stone on. I'm 21 years old and weigh 22 stone at the moment.

In 2006 I joined SW and went from 23st to 19 st 7lbs, but had a break and unfortunately never went back. I've proved to myself that I CAN do it, so now I have no excuse. I start university in 5 months so I'd like to get as much off as healthily possible by then, but I'm not expecting miracles. Just need a bit of support from people who are in the same boat. Wish me luck! :eek:

Good luck stick to it I am currently 19st 9lb (wednesday weigh in) so like you got a few to lose. Come back here for support and a laugh and you should be able to go all the way. Just remember you did not get to that weight overnight so it will take time and determination.xx

You can do it; just get a very clear picture of yourself that first day at Uni. You could easily be 4 stone lighter by then, perhaps more, imagine what you'll wear, how your hair will look, how much more confident you will feel. Now imagine not loosing any weight and how you would feel. Which one do you want to come true?

Can't wait to see how well you do. Best of luck, not that you need it!

Good luck on your weight loss journey Kate!

Hello and a huge warm welcome to minimins..

Come on here whenever you need support, a laugh or distraction (sp?)...there's always a lovely soul here to help.

Keep going and keep posting...

Good luck katie, i think you're doing the best thing, i've been to and dropped out of uni twice now...both times due to anxiety, and a huge contributrary factor was my weight...its coming off now but i think i've pretty much blown all chances of getting in again! Its not a nice place to be, knowing that you'll be on minimum wage for the rest of your life so get rid of the weight now, go to uni and blossom! You'll love it!! :D Milly x


Must do it this time
Best of luck to you kate,we are all here for you 110%,
Ladies....I also need to lose between 8 or 9 stone.....a HUGE amount of weight.....But I dont look at that big number....I am setting myself little milestones....3 stone by end of May (2 down already).....another couple of stone before my holiday in September.....then at least another 1 by Christmas.....then in the New Year I will set another set of targets....I am sure this is what is going to help me succeed this time.....xx:party0019:
Well.. I rejoined Slimming World tonight and found I'm 7lbs lighter than last time, so I'm counting that off my target! Feeling fab now, so I'm looking forward to losing more this week. :D
Welcome Kate. Pop into the SW forum on here you'll find lots of help and advice aswell as encouragement in there xxx
Weigh in tonight.. lost another 6 and a half pounds! I'm actually doing it, and it feels great :D Feeling just as enthusiastic about it as I did the first time round when I lost 3 stone, so I know I'll keep going.
Hi Katie, your doing sooooo well !!! Its kinda hard at the start cause you feel you have so much to lose but im taking it in stages and I love seeing the pounds I have to lose slowly decrease. Im at SW too and lovin it

Keep at it!
