    Evening all,

    I only just found the WeMitts - this site's confusing to navigate! :confused:

    Anyway, I did CD last year & lost a few stones, then fell pregnant! :D
    My wonderful, adorable 'baby' son is now 13 months old, so it's time for me to shift these stones, once & for all!

    I started SS last Wednesday & so far so good. I'm feeling well & *whispers in case she jinxes herself!* in control at the moment - Please God it'll last!

    Last Wednesday morning, I weighed a shameful 19st 4lbs (again) :mad: :( - But Never again!!!! will I evoke that number on the scales! It's SO frustrating to be losing this same weight again after losing it before.

    I'm not sure how low I am aiming to go - depends on how I look & feel when I get there! Initially, I've said 12 stones which means losing 7st 4lbs :eek: I'm pretty sure I'll still have to get lower than that though.

    I've also joined a gym (Gymophobics-I can highly recommend it) which will hopefully help shift the weight & minimise the excess skin left over.

    So, that's a bit about me. I look forward to sharing with you all & getting to know you better.

    Onwards & downwards...... :)

    Hey Jules good to see ya hun :) Cant believe Daniels 13 months old already, I still remember the pink site buzzing with anticipation and excitement when he was born :)

    Well things not been too good this End the past couple of months have involved numerous trips to the hospital (found a lump) but when I was given the all clear Paul paid for me to go on a girlies holiday :) was going great till my so called best friend made a horrible comment to me about my weight!!

    So I,m restarting on Friday with even more to lose than I started with :eek: I now have about 8 stone to lose!

    I,m trying to do this all before xmas as I wont be seeing my "Friend" till xmas day and I cant wait to see her face when I walk in lol

    hugs

    Nikki x

    P.s hiya Trio, hows you :)

    Blimey Nikki, sounds like life's been mad for you! Good news about the lump though.

    I'm probably looking at needing to lose around 7 to 9 stones so we can hold each others hand as we shed the stones - Once & for all!!!

    You & I both know we can do this. We've done it before & will do it now. I'm only on day 8 so we'll be able to take each step together. ::hug99:

    Good luck - and keep in touch! Oh, and as for that 'friend' - that's all the motivation you need to shift the weight. When you want to eat, imagine her face hitting the floor when you see her & you're all slim & glammed up :jelous:

    TRIO!!!!! :D:D:D:D

    I thought it was you! I've read a few snippets of pearl like wisdom - the kind only a Trio like you could dispense. Knew it had to be you :cool:

    Soooo happy to see you've maintained for so long! So proud of you Mrs. You're an example to us all - as always!

    As for my 'little' man, well, where do I start!
    He's now 13 months old, into everything & started walking 3 weeks ago! He's such a loving, happy little soul. He has admirers everywhere we go - even strangers in the supermarket! We're forever being stopped & told he should be a child model.

    He seems pretty sharp too. I know all parents say that, but everyone says he's advanced. At his 7 month check with the health visitor, he attained the levels expected of a 12 month old for everything - but walking!

    I would show you & Nikki some pics, but I can't post them here yet!

    Basically, G & I are still as excited about being Daniel's parents & we're loving every second. We feel so Blessed!

    Hah! You wait until you read the rest. Some rather embarrassing ones that really need to be deleted around about.:eek:

    Awwww, you little cherub. Cheques in the post.;)
    Oh bless. Not surprised though. He has a fab Mummy. Got to be something genetic there.

    Ahh, isn't that lovely :) You waited enough time for him. Now you can really appreciate parenthood:clap:

    Just a bit of advice which you can take or leave. Plan to have him put into boarding school (or a home) on his 13th birthday. You'll thank me for it ;)

    Anyway..So pleased to see you here and see you've started a thread.

    Must pop off and have a read:cool:
