    I was doing slimming world up until I went away in April at that point I was about 5 ibs from target, I decide after my holidays I would stop going to class and do it at home, since then I have put on more weight and have not been following teh point correctly, I think I need to go back to group I dont feel I have them motivation doing it alone at home does anyone else find this.

    Hi Gem. can i ask why you decided to stop going to group so close to T? as you'd have had free membership? The last few lbs to target i have to admit, are the hardest. I couldnt imagine trying to go it alone at such a crucial time. x

    I see, sometimes life can throw things like this at you and i expect if money was an issue then you were proberly feeling quite pre-occupied/stressed with a little bit of worry about it and that let things slip also. Im having to learn right now myself to let the past be- i never expected to ever be over my target weight ever again, and even when i knew i was pregnant i was expecting minimal gain.. now i know i have a long road ahead of me, and its hard not to be ashamed. ... you need to find that spark again, that real urge to do it which no one can penetrate, you know that sort of motivation you had in the beginning.. when nothing could stop you.


    You can plan your meals etc, all you like.. but if its your motivation that needs help then your only half way there.. Sounds like you need a real aim. Have you any important events coming up? a perticular dress youd like to get in??> xx

    I will sit down this weekend and plan my next weeks meals out and start to write things down and possiably do a food diary and post it on here. I have holiday planned for september, So really need to be at target by then if not a little lighter.

    Thanks for your repliesx

    September is a really good amount of time to aim for- as the least amount of weight you have to shift you may find it takes alot longer, dont become discouraged though- easier said than done- even if its half a pound a week, you want that because eventually youl be at target if not slightly under and it'l be so worth it!!

    Good luck xxx
