    Hi all,
    Im not very happy at the moment and feeling really low about myself so decided to browse the net and stumbled across this forum. Read few stories on here and decided i would come join you all.

    My name is Leanne, im 24 married and have 2 beautiful boys (Elliott 2 and Benjamin 6 months). I have a BMI of 40.5 :cry: i have been big since i was younger and tried all the diets but as like many others i lose weight then pile it back on and some.
    I went to drs and after being with them for slimming i couldnt seem to lose much weight so she refered me to doc to get some tablets to aid me but she refused and said i have to see nurse for a further 3 months which totally put me on a downer and i never returned to the nurse.
    At the moment i am back at slimming world and have lost 10lbs in 7weeks. Although it is coming off im not happy :sigh:
    I have been looking to get info about gastric bands (although i would have to save alot) I just want to be able to buy nice clothes and play with my little boys and not bother what people may think of me.

    all the best hun with sw. I can understand where ya are coming from and as becky mentioned would ya consider a vlcd? If ya are, the best thing to do before making your mind up would be to ask as many questions ya can about the different diets and there are a lovely bunch of people on here who would be happy to answer anything. If ya need anything ya can email me anytime. I wish ya every success and looking forward to hearing how ya are getting on, take care

    hi:wave_cry:
    just joined yesterday.i gave birth to my third daughter 5mths ago. with my two other pregnacies i gained 15lbs on both occasions.with my last pregnancy i gained 42lbs,16 of which i have already lost. i have been feeling so depressed, because of the weight i gained and the lack of success in losing it. i foolishly thought that i could lose all the weight by breastfeeding alone. yesterday, i made a comittment to myself to re-start my fitness regimen, by doing taebo dvd's(bands included).i'm at 212lbs now, so wish me luck:break_diet:
