    When I went to my first weigh-in I was a bit shocked to see that I had to lose a whole person!

    Anyone else felt this way?

    Yep I think we have all felt like that hun. Just take it a day at a time and a lb at a time and it soon adds up. All those lb losses will soon add up to the bigger picture and have you well on your way to your goal before you know it. The Journey you are on is well worth taking so stick with it and you will enjoy the results. Jo x

    Thanks so much for the encouraging words. I read your story a few days ago and thought, "that will be my story some day!"

    i still cant bring myself to set a final goal thats under 12 stone 12lbs cause i just think its beyond me

    started Slimming World 10 weeks ago at 18 stone 1lb,

    now i am 16 stone (as of last nights weigh in)

    i just think at the mo, 12.12 is in reach for me at some stage now,

    where as 10 stone is so out of reach

    when i get down near 12.12 i will have a rethink about it all

    i am just taking at "sticker at a time" as a wise lady on here says

    and just remember that ever one pound a week....is almost 4 stone a year!

    good luck with your journey x

    Although I have a goal weight on my stats I really have no idea what the actual goal should be. I just came up with a number when I opened my account lol.

    For me this is more about retraining my eating habits and keeping under control my automatic response to reach for food when emotional/stressed rather than losing weight. The weight loss is a bit of a bonus if I'm honest.

    Hi Mandy and welcome, I never though of it that way in the beginning, I never thought I'd do it anyway, I just took it a stone at a time and luckily, it just kept coming off.
