    So I have decided it's time again to lose some weight and today is the day to start. Sun is shining and summer is on it's way so no better time start!

    Day one weigh in is 5'4 and 10 st 11 3/4 lbs.

    Over Christmas I weighed 10 st 5 lbs but since then I just seem to have put in pounds every week!

    I haven't decided on what exercise to do yet as the though of exercise makes me have panic attacks lol although I do walk for at least two hours every day

    Well here goes...

    I'm going for slimming world by myself to begin with and if I struggle then I'll join a group

    Wish me luck :)

    It's not. Trust me if you stick to plan even just 80% of the time the weight will fall off you! I'm living proof of that.

    That sounds tasty! What plan are you on? Are you counting calories or just doing online slimming world?

    At the minute I'm using old slimming world books to do it myself, but thinking about joining a group again next week

    How did you do it? How much have you lost?

    I was just under 13 stone on the 1st December 2010. I'm now 9stone 4lbs. I really think you should reconsider joining a group because I'm proof that you can do it yourself. The groups are good for some but I don't see why you can't just do it by yourself and save yourself the money! Basically I made sure I had a calorie deficit of 1000 a day (calorie counting and exercise) and I've managed fine! I honestly wouldn't advise you against joining a group because some people like the support it gives, all I'm saying is that it can be done alone!

    I know it sounds strange but my weight loss never shows till my weigh in day! Dont take it to be right, your weight can naturally fluctuate daily, so after a week you have a better idea of how much you have lost. ;)
    Some people do great without group, but i couldnt. I really look forward to group now, get some great ideas and recipes. and Hifi bars are really nice. Its not for everyone, but if you are struggling at any point i would reccomend it.
    Also i dont no how old your books are but values in it may have changed now!
    Good Luck with whatever you decide! :)
