Hi everyone, I'm back. So I turned 34 this year and was really sad and shocked to see that I'm still struggling with my weight. Next year I'm gonna be 35 and I would really like to be at least 3st lighter than I am right now. This is my 2nd journey on Slimming World and I'm glad to be back. So when I first started SW in 2012, I was weighing 17st 3lbs. My metabolism has always been pretty bad and It took me 6 months to lose 2st and 5lbs. I was doing pretty good and then Christmas came, and I forgot about the diet. As time went along I just couldn't get back into it no matter how much I tried. So I went through Summer 2013 being unhappy and really kicking myself for not trying hard to lose more weight. By December 2013, I had put on weight and gone up to 16st 8.5lbs. I pretty much stayed around this weight for the next 5 months after Christmas. A month ago I decided that enough is enough and I needed to get myself sorted. I decided to do Atkins to give myself a kick-start and just take it from there. Unfortunately my body did not respond all that well to Atkins and I only managed to lose 5lbs. Not only that I was miserable as hell coz I just didn't have the strength to do proper workouts in the gym. So 2 weeks ago I started my SW journey and it's been a smooth transition. I have lost 5.5lbs in 2 weeks and I'm very happy with that. Also I have more energy to do my workouts in the gym.
