    Hi All,

    My names Becca and i am mummy to Georgia aged 6 and Gabriel who's 12 months. (i've just turned 28)

    I've done SW off and on for about 6 years and have always done well. But then i've fallen pg :rolleyes:, and am back to square one!

    I started again at the beginning of this year at home and lost 13lbs in 8 weeks, so not great - but atleast it was a loss.

    I've since returned to work full time from Maternity leave and have piled it all back on (that's canteen food for you!). Ideally i would like to lose in the region of 4 stone.

    I'm currently on a week off work and OH is working away (he runs his own company) so i'm re-starting the plan and hoping to be back at a group in the next couple of weeks.

    I'll openly admit my downfalls are wine and cheese and meals out aswell as takeaways when i cannot be bothered to cook after a hard days work! Silly really as we both enjoy good food and cooking.

    Right swift kick up the derriere and back to it. :D

    I think i might try a food diary on here too so i can get some sound advice on how well i am doing (or not!) ;)

    Hope you are all doing well. Feel free to send me some sunshine as i have a massive lawn to mow!! :p

    Hi Becca & welcome!

    You defiantely sound motivated this time around. I would say a food diary is a must! That way you know where you're at plus if you have a bad week when you didn't expect it you're consultant can have a good look & help you out, I find that helps. x

    I too have about 4 stone to loose, so far I have lost 3.5 pounds, that was in my first week, if you have done well before then you will do it again this time,

    good luck

    Welcome to the forum - you'll find a really friendly and encouraging bunch of people here. You sound really positive about your new start, so I'm sure you'll be fine.

    I know what you mean about canteen food - believe me, school dinners are no better (maybe even worse unless you can resist puddings, which I can't). This is the first week of my re-start and I'm being bery organised so it's been a breeze. Let's hope I can keep it up!

    Good luck. x

    Thanks for all your lovely welcomes!!

    Lasi night i nearly had a blip as dp had his job put back a night and he didnt want the tuna bake i had planned! He wanted PIZZA!!! So i put my foot down and made a delicious SW Carbonara (one of my faves) and it was superb - he was soooo pleased i resisted as it was amazing.

    Especially washed down with 2 glasses of Sauvignon Blanc as my syns instead of french fries and a curly wurly.

    I feel much more in control now!!!

    Hope you are all having a good day!
