Hi all

I'm Jo and I started SW on Wednesday. I have a lot to lose, I am currently 19st 5.5 and want to lose 8 stone

I live in Nottingham, work full time and have a hubby and 2 kids. I find it hard to cook from scratch as I am always so busy, I have done well the last couple of days though.

It seems like such a mamoth task, I know it is my own fault for getting this way :(

I just hope I can stick to it and hopefully make some friends along with way :D

Hi Jo and welcome.

It can feel like a big challenge when you are starting and that's why its good to focus on the half stone targets and the initial 10%.

As for how you got here, that's done and so dont worry about that, just do the best you can do now to achieve your goal and it will be here sooner than you think.

I haven't got loads to loose - I've already lost it... (and my mind in the process - ok - that was down to something else not Slimming World.).

If you want it - it's there for you to grab - Slimming World/Food Optimising works if you allow it to. Good luck with the journey.

I've got about 7 stones to lose. But, am aiming for smaller 'chunks' at the moment.
However, I was really encouraged at class this week when one of the ladies reached her 7stone loss award! It really made me determined to get to my 1st stone award.

Thanks kookie ... I joined SW 20 weeks ago. Its my first time doing SW -although I have done just about every other weightloss programme over the years :eek:
This plan seems to really agree with me :D

Hi Jo,

I've got a pretty similar start weight and goal to you and it does seem like a mountain to climb! However, I started mid April and have stayed on plan and am now about 3 stone lighter. Frankly I never thought I'd be able to stick to a diet but something just clicked in my head and now is my time to do it - I'm convinced of it - and I'm still as motivated now as I was when I started (probably more so). Long may it last! I'm sure it won't be long until you start to see results too. Lots of luck xx

Hiya Kookiethekat and a big welcome from me too! :welcome2:

I have 8 stone to lose as well.... you are definitely not alone!! And on SW its so achievable. 8st sounded like soooo much but at the same time I didn't want to kid myself by setting a interim target, so in my head I find it easier to see it in quarter chunks. I need to lose another 2.5lb (hoping to do that on the next WI) and then I've lost my first 2st. I'm telling myself that I'm a quarter of the way there..... it sounds soooo much better than saying I still have to lose 6st!!!

And try making up a few meals like spag bol or chilli when you have time and freezing them. I find then that when I haven't got the time to cook the children can have breaded fish or chicken or something quick they like the OH can have a Tesco Finest Indian and I still have a nice filling meal! But if I've got a spare portion in the freezer I do share with the OH!

Good luck hun xx

Hi,

Welcome to group.

I have 8 stone lose lose so there are quite a few of us with larger targets to aim for.

All I can suggest is stick to the plan, eat as much free and superfree food as possible BUT always have your syns.

Good luck.

Hiya Jo,
To get to the government recommended weight for my height (5ft4........very straight may be a lil bit of tippy toes) i have to lose 10 ish stone!!!
last time i did SW i got to about 1 stone over the recommended weight and was really happy and looked good, i did go about 8-9lb lower and i looked so ill and just not like me at all!!
any way 5 years 1 bad break up, several dalliances, 1 permanent new man and a new baby later ive gone back, i am quite literally the twice the woman i was!!!:eek:
But 13lb lost in 1st 2 weeks and feeling better already.
so come on hun you can, we all can do this and minimins is the best place to be while we're doing it :D:D:D

I started with about 10 stone to lose and weighed in at 20.5lbs that was last November. I'm now almost 5 stone down and I cant tell you how much better and more confident I feel :D

I'm sure you will do great and dont look at the big picture break it down into small chunks and chip away at them.

Good luck with your weightloss :D
