    Hiya :wavey:

    I'm Corrie & I've just joined this site and weightwatchers. I've been struggling with my weight ever since I had my first son nearly 11 years ago & things have came to a head & I know I seriously need to take this in hand now. I've done Scottish Slimmers on and off for years & the plan just doesn't excite me any more, which is why I've started Weightwatchers. Started on Thursday and I am so motivated this time.

    I'm looking to lose 7st 11lb to bring me down to 10st, but my interim goal is to lose at least 2 stone by the time I go on holiday on 02/10/10 (I think this should be achievable?)

    Just wanted to check in and say hi, I think I'm going to be using this forum a lot over the next few months ;)

    Hi Corrie and welcome :D I hope you find this site to be as friendly and inspirational as I have found it to be.

    I'm positive that 2 stone is achievable for your holiday in October.
    Good luck!

    Hi everyone, thanks for the messages of support. Had been feeling great but am hungry today for the first time :sigh: Off to make a big pot of chicken noodle soup for me and my 4 wee boys :)

    Well done Lucky Cat, that's fab! How long has that taken you?

    Thanks Corrie and thanks to slimmermcs2012 too :D

    I've been doing it since 1st Jan (literally my new year's resolution, probably the only one i've ever stuck so long to ;))

    I do have a bit more to shift yet and the weight loss has slowed down now but it is still coming off slowly but surely and I feel so much better and am so much fitter now too.

    Keep at it everyone, with a bit of hard work and determination anything's achievable :D
