    [FONT=&quot]Hello![/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I've been on (and more often, off) Slimming World for a couple of years now, and after losing a couple of stone and my weight going up and down with my motivation I am now only a few pounds lighter than where I started years ago![/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]After being a reader of this forum for a long time I've decided to join in. I started following the plan properly a fortnight ago and I have started going to the gym regularly to do the Couch to 5k challenge and a few other bits besides.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I've lost 7.5lb in the last 2 weeks but I know that my motivation tends to be short-lived so I'm going to keep a diary on here and hopefully join in on the other threads too, as I find many of the posts on here so inspiring.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]My confidence has gone to pot and I feel like a shadow of who I was a few years ago, even my friends are commenting now on how my opinion of myself is holding me back in life.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I'm getting married in May next year and currently, the idea of trying dresses on in a shop, in front of my best friend TERRIFIES me - so I don’t know how I will ever get down the aisle if I don't do something about me weight and my confidence.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Thanks to any of you that have read this far![/FONT]

    Hi there and welcome to the forum.
    Like u I've been lurking on here for about a year but never really done anything seriously about my situation. I too decided to join in the chat in hope that the motivation and determination the others seem to have on the forum will somehow rub off on me. It's early days but 2 weeks in and so far so good. They're a lovely crew. Good luck with your journey x

    Hello :)

    We'll all get there in the end! What diet/plan are you following? x

    Currently doing slim fast although I'm only 2 weeks in so early days. I've done SW before with good results but I needed something which took less planning time around. I'm hoping this is the last time tho and the weight stays off this time. U still doing SW? X

    Yeah, I'm too much of a pig to do anything else - and when I plan and do it right it really works for me :)

    Hope Slim Fast goes well, I'm full of admiration - I just don't have that level of willpower!

I lost three stone at ww last year for my wedding but have put a stone back on I've decided to do the vlcd sachets for two weeks to hopefully get it off! Fingers crossed and good luck to you xx

    Thank you Lynda (and sorry for the late reply - busy weekend full of Mother's!) Three stone is amazing, I hope I can do as well as that! Good luck with the sachets :) xxx
