Hi everyone, I've been here before and used this forum a lot when I did Slimming World in 2012. I lost over 5 stone in 7months and got from nearly 20stone down to the 14s. But here I am again, I have gained all my weight back :sigh: and it's getting me down quite badly. I never realised how relationships can really put the pounds back on you, the last time I weighed myself I was back in the 19s and that was in March. I really don't dare weigh myself! I want to lose the weight I gained but I know it's going to be tougher as my other half says all the time he "loves me the way I am". I moved to Sweden from England in December to live with my partner and it all went down hill from there, eating out a lot and him coming back from work with takeout food was all too good. I suffer badly with fatigue which is why I lost weight in the first place and I felt great, I could do so much more with myself without needing to sleep for a week to make up for it - this past month I have been wiped out with fatigue which made me realise I really need to do something about it. Slimming World won't be an option for me, and I can't do it online because I need the group support. I am going to start with cutting down portion sizes, cutting out all the fizzy drinks, less beer/wine and crisps - hopefully that can help push my weight down, I am going to set myself a small goal to lose half a stone in a month. It might seem quite a small goal, but I don't want to push myself too hard as I know when I set a goal and don't get it, I get disappointed. Since moving here I don't have as many people to talk with so I am hoping that MiniMins can help me keep motivated again!! First things first, I need to buy a set of weighing scales lol. My boyfriend doesn't have any which in a way has done me good as I became a compulsive weigher when I was living at home still. I would find myself standing on the scales 2-3 times a day ?? I think I will have to get him to hide them from me!
