    Hi all.... I'll dive in ! ... I am 32 and was just restarting CD- after having to come off it previoulsy due to my father being ill and needing to concentrate on him - but like so many other stories here I just am struggling getting back into it.. and there is also the money side of things.

    So for many reason I have decided to give WW a go..and stop CD, as I said this is for many reasons .. but also as I have so much weight to lose..(over 10stone) I worry about the saggy skin issue, and although a quick fix is always nice, I think slowly would be a better option so as not to be left to saggy!!! - and I think this needs to be a way of life, unlike CD when I get to goal weight there will be no complicated move to eating food again...

    If there is anyone else out there with the same amount of weight to lose..im here if you wanna a chat!

    Sorry to ramble
    Fallen x

    Happy new year!!!

    Just spotted you had been back on

    Yes and no.... I got the details of the core plan from a colleague and stuck to that for about 4 months, then I changed to a slimfast shake and fruit for lunch until November last year then changed over to WW points. I lost most o fmy weight 88lbs in the first year. Last year I messed about gaining and loosing a stone but ended up down just over 2 stone in the year. Now year 3 is about to start and we'll see where that goes I'm struggling a bit but hope to get back to it big time now.

    You will be fine once you get into it. I do it on my own but others go to class

    We can and many others will support you too. You can find my diary at 100lbs gone and starting on the next 100lbs in the diary list. I'm here most days posting - it gets addictive - so I'll check in with you.
    There will be more people about after the holiday and they will soon pop in and visit you.


    Sorry about your husband's redundancy

    Good luck

    I only had the one shake at lunch and often still do. Weight loss for me appears to have settled down to a regular 1-2lbs regardless of what tweaks I make, just make changes when I get stuck or bored. I'm a bit older tham most on the forum at 55 so don't know if that effects it.
