    Thought I could go it alone but I was wrong :eek:

    So with my tail between my legs i'm finally going back to class.

    The good news is my friend is also coming with me. She lost 6 stone on SW when we first attempted it 2 years ago and has kept it off. She's a real inspiration.

    Fingers crossed i can succeed this time!

    Whatever works best for you is the key.
    Although I have lost over a stone and a half going it alone, I am going to join a local class next week to help keep myself motivated and be able to access syns online etc ;)
    Good luck.

    You haven't failed, failure would be to completely stop sw, well done on rejoining and its always good to go with a friend for moral support and a bit of healthy competition! Good luck for WI next week,donnax

    Thankyou so much for your replies. I'm actually feeling excited about going to class now!

    Donna, thankyou so much for making me realise that you are right. I havent failed, stopping altogether would be failing. I'd never thought of it like that!

    Here's to a fresh start and getting the extra support i need :D

    I have just joined a local class tonight. Consultant very welcoming and knowledgeable.
    Good job I did though - there was a difference of 5lbs between mine and her scales, so I weigh more than what I thought :(
    If that doesn't give me the kick up the backside I need, I don't know what will.

    Good luck. I agree with Donna, knowing when you need a helping hand with something and making sure you get that help is actually a big success and a step along the way of a weightloss journey. It is a behavior modification and something that will set you up to succeed so a very good thing.

    Rainstar, failing is when you totally give up. You certainly haven't done that! You are on the downward road to success now.
    I lost 2 stone 2 years ago, then left and put it all back on. I recently lost 1 stone going it alone but then stalled. Now I am back at class, only lost 4 lb. in 4 weeks, but I am determined to get back to where I was. Determination is the key for us all, you CAN do it and you WILL do it. Keep us posted please!
