    My name is Stuart and a little chubbly and I need to get rid of it. This looks like a positive place to start. I see a lot of support here and that's basically what I need.

    I currently weigh around 18 stones. I haven't always been big but quitting smoking punished me about 8 years ago and I put 7 stones on. Now I am too ashamed to look at myself in the mirror and I don't feel comfortable with myself naked to let the wife anywhere near me. Sad but true.

    I am 33 next week and want to make a new birthday a new start.

    I've done Slimming World and it was very good and I lost weight but its gone back on as I couldn't afford to keep going. It wasn't the diet that made me lose weight (well it was), it was going to the meetings every week and getting the round of a applause for losing 1lb or 2lb or 3lb etc. THAT is why I did it and I benefited from my own sick desire to compete.

    So there you go.
    Yours,
    Stuart

    Nope.

    I have recently had to take a 20% pay cut and go onto a 3 day week.

    It's a little out of my price range at the minute.

    Hi, I'm doing SW but by myself as I had the stuff from years ago. There are no classes where I live so don't have a choice. I gave up smoking around 8 years ago and have been battling with my weight since so understand what that is like. Good luck :D
