Hello, so glad to find this forum!


The Weight Loss Monster

My name's Ness and I have just started loosing weight with Weight Watchers two weeks ago. I've lost weight with them before (lost 3 stone in 6 months about 7 years ago!) and I really do love how they work.
I'm finding it hard this time round. I had a hysterectomy a year ago and I also have to take large amounts of steroids for an auto immune disease. I'm pleased because I lost 4.5 lbs last week and I'm sure I've lost this week too (fingers crossed I find out this evening!) but everything seems ten times harder this time.
The weight just melted off last time and I really enjoyed myself. This time I'm counting and over analysing every point I eat and I'm exercising (walking is all I'm able to do right now) like mad. No matter that I know I haven't cheated, I still feel as huge as I did before I started.
I went onto the WW site forum to ask how the menopause and steroids slow weight loss down but their forum is a bit all over the place and I wasn't comfortable.
Anyway, this seems an awful lot like I'm over sharing, so sorry about that. I'm just really pleased to have found such a friendly, well organised place where people are in the same boat as me. It can be so flaming lonely dieting! :wave_cry:
I look forward to chatting to everyone. :D

Welcome Ness. Best of luck! 4.5lbs is brilliant for the first week! Good luck for weigh-in tonight. I'm sure you'll have another loss. xxx

Thank you both very much. This is such a supportive and friendly place that I know it's going to help me with my healthy eating. :)
Good luck Ness, it looks like we are all in the same boat on this forum! Seem to be a lot of seats on board too lol, but at least we have each other :)
how did your weigh in go? x

Hi Cudlepaws & Piink

Lol Cuddlepaws, yes there does seem to be a lot of seats on this boat... all extra large for comfort :)

My weigh In was a dissapointment Piink (I've moaned already in the WW weigh In section), I only lost 0.5 lbs and was just gutted but I'm over it now. At least it was a loss I suppose :rolleyes:. I was a wee bit shocked because I had really stuck to the diet and a couple of other people at the meeting had cheated rotten all week but lost more... thems the breaks I suppose!

I measured myself and was really chuffed to see that I lost at least 5 cm's all over... so I MUST be getting fitter :D. I'm glad I didn't do my usual and get disheartened, quit and eat twice my body weight in chocolate!:eek:

I'm confident (after a fashion), that I'll do better this week!;)
