    Hi everyone

    It's been a long time since I joined a forum and felt part of a community, but I hope I will fit in here. I look forward to giving and receiving support along my weight loss journey.

    I'm 25 and my weight has been creeping up and up for over 4 years. I've had periods of (small) loss and (large) gain, but haven't been happy with my weight since the end of 2009 when I was around 9 stone. I think I am currently about 14 and a half stone!! Argh! I estimate that I've gained 25lbs in the past year since I got married, but I had my lightbulb moment the other day. I realised I cannot continue like this or it will get harder and harder to change, and I may never feel good about myself again. I know this won't be easy and I wish I had tried to change when I only had a stone to lose but I wasn't ready. I feel like I'm now mentally ready to put my all into this and change for good.

    Therefore, I'm planning on going to my first Slimming World meeting on Wednesday. I've never done it before, but people I know have, and they've been successful. I think I need structure and accountability or I will find it all to easy to slip back into old habits. I would love to be able to fit into size 10 clothes again (currently in a very tight 16!) and to feel healthy. To not get out of breath all of the time and for my body not to ache. My husband is joining with me, so I'm hoping we'll be able to support each other.

    I hope that by the end of the year I will have lost the majority of the weight, but I'm aware it may take a while to get to goal.

    Hi - I'm in a similar position to you. I think I'm around 14 st or so (haven't dared weigh myself since Christmas) and I am going to my first SW meeting tomorrow evening as I need structure and flexibility and feel that SW could be the way to go for me.

    Good luck.
