Hi there :)

I've recently rejoined Slimming World, and thought that some online support may be helpful.

My name is Danni. I'm 25 years old, and live in Tyne and Wear with my husband.

My weight has been pretty wild the last few years, everything from very underweight due to gallstones to 18 1/2 stone from medication (which I was then taken off because of the weight gain). I first joined Slimming World when I was 22 and 16 stone 1b, lost some weight, but stopped going to the meetings after a few weeks because of depression.

Since then I've recovered from depression, but I now have moderate to severe M.E., that means I'm unable to walk and bedbound around 20 hours a day. Despite this, I'm determined to get back to my comfortable weight of 10 stone, so have rejoined Slimming World. I also discovered at my first meeting that I've managed to lose another 1 stone 11.5 lbs since the last time I went there, so that made me happy :)

My husband is being incredibly supportive. He's pushing me to meetings in my wheelchair, and as he has to do all the cooking and food fetching he's taking on board how I'm going to be eating. He's also claiming it's a terrible hardship having to eat all the chocolate and things we have in by himself (he's trying to gain weight) :p

I'm hoping that over the next few months I'll be able to lose weight steadily.

Thank you for reading this :)

It sounds like you've had a rough time of it, but it also seems like you've got a good fighting spirit and a great supportive husband so I'm sure your diet will go really well.
