    I started off not far from your weight, I'm down to 11st and a comfortable size 12 now so persevere. It's only taken me to now to realise that it's a life change not a diet, my whole attitude towards food has changed and I'm finally enjoying trying new recipes and food I never thought I would eat :)

    Hi Linda, I'm in my early 30s but like u I feel I've wasted the best years of my life being overweight, at times I get quite angry with myself for allowing this to happen but I'm determined I will never go back there. I've booked a holiday this summer with all the girls and for once I won't be the 'fat friend', and on a mission to lose another stone before I go :)

    There's a few photos but to be honest i'm so embarrassed by them I have them all put away. There's one photo in particular that really haunts me, that's when I first decided to do something about it, best decision I've ever made :)

    What is important is that you have started again, would have been easier not to and just keep gaining so don't be too hard on yourself and well done. :)

    Linda - there's another board on this forum for people with more than the average amount to lose - it's called the WEMITTs - the We Mean It This Times :D

    People like us - with a long, long way to go on our weight loss do have some issues that are different from say, someone who wants to lose a stone or two. The SW board is incredibly helpful and supportive, but don't restrict yourself to it - come and join in on the WEMITTs as well :wavey:

    Samantha that's great... And silly as it may sound to others .. great that you have gal pals to go on hols with .. I allowed my weight to stop me getting gal pals through self hatred n loathing.. I turn folk away .Developed over a lifetime.. I won't bore you with details but my previous posts n threads explain more... Am sure you can lose your stone n have a life changing time. :)

    Hey I only lost 3lbs in my first week last week and I was gutted as I was expecting a lot more as usually you get a big loss on first week but trying not to get caught up about it! X

    At my heaviest, I weighed 20st 5lb, and managed to lose a couple of stone before joining SW for the last time(I must have joined and rejoined about 30 times!!) If I can do it, anyone can. Don't waste time on the past- just concentrate on the here and now. Oh, and I 'only' lost 2lb in my first week!!

    I saw a great motivational quote the other day.....
    It said
    No matter how many times you visit the past, there will never be anything new to see.

    It really rung a bell with me.
    So don't look back, you can't can't change how many times you have you have joined a dieting group ( I've lost count !!) or how much you have lost and regained. Concentrate on today and take each minute as it comes....and remember as each minute passes, that becomes the past....

    good luck....
