Hello everyone, newbie starting SW

Hi folks, i have been browsing the forum for a few day's and i'm so impressed and inspired by you all.
I'm joining SW tomorrow. I'm nervous about meeting new people and being "the Big one" of the group. There seems to be a lot of info to get my head around but i'm hoping to throw myself into it with passion and determination.
I have had weight issues and been yoyo dieting since about ten years old when i put the "puppy fat" on. I am guessing i have around five stone to lose which has crept on since i stopped nicotine replacement therapy 5 years ago. I actually stopped smoking ten years ago but became addicted to the nicotine gum.
I would say i eat when i'm stressed. We buried my Dad last week after his battle with oral cancer and Mum has non hodgkins lymphoma and has been going through a lot of chemo these past few months. With this added stress i can feel myself getting heavier so i really need to get a grip NOW!!!!
Many thanks in advance in sharing my journey and good luck to you all xxx

Hi Mollyrock, I have only just joined on here today and re started the SW EE plan on Saturday, I have done SW before but red and green days so I'm getting my head around the EE plan. I'm doing this at home with the books a friend lent me last year (wasn't the right time) so here I go on this journey again hopefully this time for the last time. good luck with your journey, I've requested you as a friend as I could do with some allies to take on the good times and the bad times :)
Nice to meet you honi and thanks for the add :) Best of luck!!
I'm just trying to find my way around the forum. At least it's a distraction and i haven't eaten for an hour lol xx

It's a bit of a maze, I'm sure we'll figure it out....I'm just cooking a SW chilli at the moment, so hopefully when I eat that I'll not need anything else later tonight. I feel really determined this time, not really sure why but heck, i'm not going to argue with myself over it.
My stomach aint too fond of chilli but i'm looking frwd to trying some new recipes.
Enjoy it tho :)
I'm going to have a few glasses of wine tonight as im not sure when i will get chance next. YIKES!!!! lol.

Sometimes....like packing in smoking....something just clicks in the brain and you know that you are strong enough to do it. Sounds like me and you have got that click :) xx
Hi Denise, how are you getting on with the plan? xx
