    So here I am yet again, another year on and several pounds heavier when I promised myself in Jan last year that I would lose weight in 2012 but all I did was pile it on :mad: . I even remember having that determined feeling that I WOULD do it. Well it's my 40th this year and I need to do it!! I have no idea what I weigh (that would be a start eh lol) but I do know I need to lose at least 1 stone and then some (I will weigh myself later if I can find the scales!). I will try and deal with half a stone at a time.

    Here's to a year of weight loss for us all determined to do it in 2013......good luck everyone :D

    Hey macbie I'm 3 days in and am doing Sw at home this time so using the site for support- it's great. Lots of motivation and inspiration! I had my 40th dec 11 and lost for that but in the last year have been such a porker and put on 1.5 stone- oops. Have 3.5 to lose. Lets do it this year!!! I've got that determined feeling too - 2013 unlucky for some but not for us!!!

    Hey smurfette. You can do it - we are all in the same boat so lots of support here if you need it. Most on here know Sw inside out so any questions just ask. Good luck!

    Hi all, I am starting SW tonight again, 8/1/13. Have no idea what my weight will be yet, I know Ive put quite a bit back on, particularly throughout the winter, but I hope I will still be slightly lighter than this time last year which could be a positive (if true)! I will keep you all posted, good luck to everyone, chin up and as they say "we are all in this together"!

    Hello everyone! Can I join you? I'm staring SW today from home. I have 33 lbs to lose.. I've been sort of dieting throughout last year but was not consistent at all... All I was consistent with was piling on the pounds.. I think I have a lot to lose and that is a bit discouraging but I found a lot of inspiration and motivation in this website!!! I have great things to look forward to this year such as getting married! I want to look my best on that day so wish me luck! Today a long journey begins!!!

    I've just finished my first week on SW - I'm really enjoying it and hoping to stick to it long term.
