    Hi all :wavey:

    I thought I would post to see if there are any slimming worlders around the Lincoln area?

    I moved to Lincoln a year ago with my partner and we have found it hard to meet new people, we both work in small teams and are on a budget so can't really join any clubs or anything so a year in and we haven't really made many friends! I would love to meet some fellow like minded people who could share some motivation and support!

    I really need some motivation to get back on track and thought if there were enough people we could organise a meet somewhere or something? :) Maybe even plan it for a few months in advance and use it as a little goal/challenge?

    My name is Claire by the way, 26 and I live about 4 miles from Lincoln city centre with my partner Ben and my two cats!

    So anyone out there from the Lincoln area!

    Claire xx

    Hi

    I know this is no help at all but I am from lincoln (a village called Heighington & my dad stills lives there) but I now live in leeds. Lincoln is a nice place & much better since they built Uni as there is now more going on

    PS good luck finding some yellow belly I think there a few on here

    Helllllo,

    Fellow Lincolnite here. Well I live in Saxilby, but it's pretty much Lincoln :)

    How are you enjoying our fine city?

    Hey Stackhead thanks for posting, I thought it was just little ole me!

    We are liking Lincoln, it was just by chance that we moved here, my OH was made redundant and he is quite specialised in what he does but he managed to get a job at the police head quarters in Nettleham and so we moved!

    We have been here a year now, we enjoy the quiet life, we both kind of got partying and clubbing out of our systems at uni so now we just enjoy nice meals out and having picnics, cinema and stuff. As we both work in really small offices we haven't really had the opportunity to meet any new people so thought this might be worth a shot! Would be nice to make some friends to share good times with!

    Have you always lived in Lincoln? We are looking forward to settling down here and buying a house etc. I think we will stay North of the city when we buy. We haven't made it to Saxilby yet!

    Hi Claire!

    I'm Saxilby born and bred... so are my parents, and my grandparents!! My entire family (including cousins, aunties and uncles) lives in a 10 mile radius!! So apart from a brief stint in Birmingham for uni, i've been in Saxilby forever! I'm just a small town girl at heart! :)

    I like the north of Lincoln, it's the pretty part :) All my friends have stayed in their uni cities, so it would be nice to have someone who actually lives in Lincoln!! :D

    Hey! :wavey:

    I am ashamed to say I just had to look at where Saxilby is! Not too far from Lincoln really! Do you head in to town much? Do you work nearby to your home or do you need to commute a lot? Luckily my boyfriend and I both work within about 3 miles from home- hence the reason we never get very far!

    It must be cool to have all your family nearby, I only have a small family, my parents are still in North Wales where I grew up and my sister lives in Newcastle still (where I moved from). I went to uni there and stayed 6 years until we moved here :)

    You will have to give me a shout next time you are heading toward Lincoln and we could have a coffee or something!

    Feel free to pm me if you fancy!

    Claire xx

    I'm always in Lincoln :) There's not much in good ol' Saxilby, unless you want to hang out in the pubages all day :D

    I work in Lincoln, just behind Morrisons too.
