Hi all!!! This is a new account and a new approach at dieting for me! I have many tried and failed dieting attempts under my belt. Always been chubby, started putting more wight on at uni and don't think I stopped! Joined slimming world for the first time at 16 stone... Would lose 7-15lbs and then think I could do it on my own... I didn't really commit to a lifestyle change. Each time I re-joined I would be another stone heavier. Always thinking my life would be better when I lost the way. Ironically, last year I was both the happiest and heaviest I've ever been. Pushing 20 stone I knew I *had* to do something about it. I joined weight watchers in the middle of December last year and at my first weigh in was 20 stone 13lbs. Lost just over a stone so far, moved countries (!!) and been on holiday.... but despite not being weighed for the whole of Feburary - have gained just 2.5lbs this morning. I will be doing simple start but also counting points because tracking is key for me. Have used this forum years ago and found it great for motivation and encouragement, as well as meeting like minded people with similar struggles and experiences. Looking forward to getting this weight off!!!
