    So here goes everything....I'm new here but not to slimming world! Last year I managed to lose 2st4lbs in 4 months. I was the ideal member, loved it, raved about it, followed it 110% and reaped the benefits. Then Sept came and I went back to do a Masters degree by night while also working full time and with a 2 year old!! Things went South pretty quick and in Dec myself Hubby daughter and my parents headed to USA for 6 weeks over Xmas and by the time I got back I'd gained back 1st 4lbs :/(( since then it's been a disaster and I stopped going to class.
    Joined back 3 weeks ago..lost 6 in first week then gained 1/2 then last night was up another 2.5.

    I now realise I have got to get my act back together. I am SICK, sick, of being Fat. Sick of having a wardrobe of fabulous clothes I can't wear. Sick of feeling self conscious about my body. Sick of being on a constant rollercoaster of food and guilt. Sick of my body not matching the person I actually am. Sick of feeling like my Hubby deserves a better body on his wife! Sick sick sick but mostly sick of knowing how successful SW can be and yet not doing it! How frustrating.

    So here I am, determined. I've 3-4stone to lose to be remotely average! I can and I WILL do this. Hopefully some of you will stick around for the ride!!!

    Good luck Amo - you sound very determined and in the right place to succeed. I like your idea of weighing your superfree in the first instance to get a feel for the third. Lots of people don't seem to take that part of the plan very seriously so good on you for trying to get it right!

    Aw no hope u feel better soon! I do tend to be good on the weekend. I do think it helps that I work all weekend so I'm busy rather than sat at home staring at the fridge. I'm not a big drinker either so i only go out maybe once a month, that helps! Lol

    Keep thinking thin! Best of luck on Thursday! Can't wait to find out your loss!!! Xxx

    Let me know how tomorr goes x
