Long story but I joined SW Jan 2011 at 15.10 and got down to 14.10, my consultant wasn't that supportive and by April, she was only focusing on the new comers, I left as there wasn't any support, im quite shy and didn't really chat to anyone either..
Anyway I planned to stick to it at home, I did for a few months but not very strictly, moved from Scotland to Devon and have dabbled in WW and dukan since.then but only regaining and Losing up to 15 St.3. I have got my old SW stuff out and going to give it another try. I have been on dukan but have been getting quite ill and so think I need something more sensible.

So that's me, I'm nearly 21 and a student nurse, don't wana be a fat.nurse advising people to lose weight! In my first year but really Need to be at goal for myself and my career. My partner works away so its just me in the house, which helps.Cos I shop for me and me only but also means there's no one there to judge if I have seconds or snacks etc !

Support will be needed girls (and boys!) I havent done Sw in abot 2yrs so im following my books from then, if im doing things wrong please say.
Im going to be doing a mix of green red and EE days. Starting with red today. Starting weight is 14.8 and my goal is either just below or just above 10St. Will see how my body is and how I feel when I get there.

:) thanks for reading xxxx

Where in Devon are you? I'm in Paignton!

You look like you're doing well... I always find the first few weeks hard but keep at it and you tend to get in to your own pattern x

Hi Clover,
I'm a nurse too and find the shift work does not help. I rarely get a break while at work so by the time I get home I am so hungry I raid the fridge!
But no more.... I have to get this weight off.
