    Back on the Weight Watchers!
    Some of you may remember me from ages ago. I thought I could go it alone and was trying Weight Watchers, having failed miserably at Slimming World.

    Well, it's fair to say that I can't go it alone, I tried and gained and went off plan and ate Dominos and gained more. I have gained so much weight since I was last on here BUT - I have given up smoking since February!

    I have now joined a group and have my first true weigh in tomorrow night. I am terrified. But, no matter what happens I must stick with this for good. I have just been asked to be a bridesmaid by one of my best friends and I WILL NOT BE A PODGY BRIDESMAID.

    :eek:

    Welcome back!

    Congrats on the non-smoking, that is a hell of an achievement!!!!

    Good luck for your WI :) No need to be terrified, just promise yourself to give it 4 full 100% weeks to get back in the swing and I'm CERTAIN you'll have a loss :D x

    Congratulations on giving up smoking. You sound really motivated and you'll soon be back on track with your weight loss, just keep thinking how you want to look in your bridesmaid's dress! :)

    Well done on giving up smoking, I know from experience what it can do for your weight, I am 8 and a half months smoke free now, and tackling the weight I gained x

    Aww! thanks everyone, I'm really pleased about the giving up smoking but I couldn't believe how fast and how much weight went on. I naively thought it was a myth about gaining weight but never mind, it'll come off eventually.

    Woohoo that's awesome well done :D
    Giving up smoking is gonna make SUCH a difference to your health (and your bank account) I'm sure it was worth putting some weight on, now you're on the right track to be thin AND a non-smoker :happy096:

    I must admit having a good loss on the first week does give me the kick I need to keep going. I'm all excited about the recipes again - doing the Sausages & Green Lentil thing from the 'your week' mag tonight and did the cheesey turkey meatloaf from Fabulous and Filling last night. Might start a cook book addicts thread!
