    I've been posting on here all evening, it's nice to be back :) I used to go to classes 2 years ago and got down to my lowest weight of 9st 3lbs..then I don't know what happened! I have been hovering at 10st 7lbs for ages now and I just find the extra weight annoying, it might not be that much but it feels like it is...i'd like to get to target and stay there this time..so one and a half stone to go!

    Been doing it alone today and yesterday, going to join a group soon, was going to go tonight but it is tipping down with rain outside and dark and cold, rubbish excuse I know! I used to go with my mum but she eats erratically and used to always moan that the diet didn't work, which was a bit embarrassing!

    Anyway this is my favourite slimming site and I have already written down loads of syn values i'd forgotten, glad to be back! :D

    Thanks everyone! That's why I like this board, everyone's so helpful and supportive :D

    I tried Atkins a few weeks ago and I just couldn't get my head around it - it just didn't make sense to be frying bacon in butter and having double cream in my tea! :eek:

    I know from the past that this can work for me if I follow it properly, so i'm going to do it, and stick at it! (the best incentive ever is all the masses of too-small clothes I have packed away, it will be like getting a whole new wardrobe for free!)

    The question is, do I go back to my old group and hang my head in shame or join a new one? There are 2 on thursdays...

    Wouldnt be a bad thing if they were hun, might mean you had someone you knew to go with and you could buddy up. I am sure you will do really well and be back at target real soon xx

    Well I went and joined again :D I weighed in heavier than I thought, 5 lbs more, but nevermind, it was good to be back in a group and now i'm all set, went to Tesco's and spent £50 on storecupboard ingredients, yoghurts etc!

    I'm glad I can access the syns calculator too now, will be a big help!

    My mini goal is to lose 6lbs by christmas :D

    Yep, the one near my work. There were 2 girls I went to school with there (9 years ago), will talk to them next time, it was a bit quiet there tonight as loads of them had gone late night shopping!

    I'm sooo glad this consultant didn't make me tell everyone about myself, the last one did!

    edit: updated my ticker!

    Yes it was nice to see someone familiar, we were more acquaintances than friends at school but they seem very nice now.
