I have recently joined slimming world for the first time and am aiming to lose 7 stone to get down to 10 stone. My weight has crept up since turning 16, through college, university and then having my little boboy. I've had enough of feeling fat and frumpy, it affects everything in my life especially my confidence. I would like my partner and I to be healthy happy parents able to run around and take our son places like swimming etc. Without feeling embarrassed and ashamed at my size. We have recently moved to Ireland from England and I literally know no one, so it is quite a tough lonely time. Hopefully I will meet people when I go back to work from maternity leave but at the moment it is hard. Joining slimming world has given me something to think about and focus on, as well as giving me a break from the house one evening a week. Any support will be appreciated, good luck every one with your weight losses!
