Hello Everyone! :)

I have rejoined slimming world tonight and I am hoping I will stick to it. Last time, I was a member for about 3 - 4 months and then fell hard down the slippery slope, completely ruining the 2.5 stone i'd lost. I joined uni this year and tonight when I stepped on the scales, I had to bite my lip to stop myself from crying there and then, I have put on 5, nearly 6 stone since last september.

The amount of weight I want to lose just seems so far away and I am so worried that I can't do it. I am training to be a primary school teacher and desperately need to lose around 8/9 stone.

I would love it if we could have a little group here, or maybe even only one other person to support me, please, I'm feeling pretty low :(

I know how you feel, I put on 3 stone in three months once when I was a student it was not a nice feeling. You can do it, just set small targets and see this as a permanent lifestyle change. Eat food that nourishes your body, with the odd treat to nourish your soul. Move your muscles in a way you enjoy to feel strong and lean. Make up a mantra that suits you. Mine is 'I choose to a slim fit healthy mummy'

My oldest boy is in P1 being a teacher is a special job you will love it!

Hiya! Good luck with your weight loss. :) Have you seen that there's a sub-forum for people who have a fair amount to lose? It's under Slimming Clubs, and it's known as WEMITTs - We Mean It This Time. They have a good support network going on there, and I'm sure you'd be very welcome. I had around 9/10 stone to lose when I started. I've lost over 8 stone so far, and have found this site a great source of inspiration and support. You can definitely do it! :) xx

You can do it, it's amazing how quickly you get into it, and how positive it feels.

Hi, count me in have about 6 stone to lose (more would be nice but be very happy with that), easy to feel on your own when your dieting so hopefully coming on here will give me the support I need!! Also looking for a diet buddy or buddies to keep me motivated, can't afford the club route so getting my daughter to weigh me every weds, got her to take some undies photos last night and was so gutted and what I saw, certainly gave me a big kick up the backside and a reality check I badly needed!! You know your fat but until its there in front of you it doesnt really hit home, so very motivated. Doing a 2 week kick start of 800 cals a day, then review how its going.....lost 4 stone 2 years ago and just let it all creep back on again. Determined not to be fat and fifty but fit and fifty!! Happy to chat to all on facebook or on here, want some buddies in the same boat who can kick me up the backside when I start to slip....and will give all the support and motivation I can in return!! :) Good Luck everyone...come on this time WE REALLY CAN DO IT....and start living again ((hugs)) xxxxx

Hey Laura, managed the dog walk was lovely here, we had thunder and lightening about 6ish!! Nice, what sort of food you planning on, I've done it before where i've had work meals etc and coped fine but that was when I was further into my diet, to early on for me to give myself a night off :) It is do-able I used the WW eating out guide, which was a godsend, what diet is it your faollowing again? I made myself a homemade Lentil and vegetable soup for dinner was delicious, tasted better than it sounds lol, right of to bed, dentist 1st thing then an induction interview with the new bosses (GULP!!) :(, have a good Friday xx
