Hello lovely ladies and gents!

Iv been posting a little bit more the last few days but im spotting so many unfamiliar names i feel so out of place - which is such an odd feeling when this felt like home for so long. So i wanted to kind of re-introduce myself, so that maybe some of you who i dont know may share a little about yourselves and i can begin to feel a little bit more established back into the minimins way of life!!

So me; i joined slimmingworld may 2008 and the age of 16.. i weighed 14st 8.5lbs and joined to please my skinny rake of a mother who has always tried to make me diet.. for my own good of course, but you cant help someone who doesnt want help! i loved chips far too much you see. :eek: i decided i'd give it one week, and when it didnt work.. i could turn round and say i gave it my all and quit. Week one i lost 3.5lbs and i was hooked. Iv been going every single week since and i still love it now. I hit target in august 2009, 10st 1. I was in the final 6 for Young Slimmer of The Year '09 which was amazing, and dropped a futher 1./2 a stone 6 months later to have a round loss of 5stone. This was unmaintainable for me, and so after a very naughty week away, i promptly returned to 10st after only a month or two and have continued to successfully maintain. Im now 19 weeks pregnant, and have gained 1 stone 5.5 lbs to date. Suffering from morning sickness and 'im gunna get fat anyways' syndrome it's not what i ideally want.. so my wiegh in days are wednesday and this week, im hand on heart giving it my all. Not for weight loss expectations (although this would be nice, and im secretly jelous after reading mrs_davies weight loss diary whilst preggo! lol) but the more damage limitation i can do the healthier i will be for my baby and the least i will have to loose after birth to get back to normal self.. iv been registered to this site for over 2 years or so i expect now, and was a regular poster!.. but have been sadley neglecting since pregnancy so would like to get to know you all again and hope you'l welcome me back ;)

So thats my weight loss 'journey' - other than that my name is Fern, im 19 and im engaged to a skinny arse, can eat what he wants with beautiful skin (damn him!) blokey called Joe. This is our first babba and im a teaching assistant!


Now.. anyone else like to share so i can get to know you all??
or give us a wave if you recognise us and let me know how youv been! xxx

P.s thought i'd add my before.. after.. and 'right now' pic. :eek:) just so you can see what i was, what i acheived.. and the porker i am now :p

good to see you back.
im ok......maintaining perfectly on paper although in reality its by 3 or 4 bad,bad days followed by 3 or 4 good ones.and although its good im maintaining i dont want to slip back into bingy ways so im trying to get more into the sw way of maintaining!
who knows though it may just be the way that maintaining works for for me...its just hard getting your head around it!

Great to see you back! I'm hovering around target without actually hitting it, as I did then didn't declare for some silly reason, but I think I will this week! :)

No sunshine, here!

Shrimpy, i remember you hovering over what to do about T last time i checked in with you guys- call target girl, youv done so well stop hasseling yourself for more! lol..

Hollys_nan- hello *waves* hope you are well. I cant really say how i'm finding slimmingworld whilst pregnant, seeing as i'v completley failed to maintain any sw structure since day one, i had the most awful sickness untill week 16- and the only thing i could keep down.. genuinly.. was white toast and butter ( of all the things, that was never going to help ) but i was so desperate to feel well i'd much prefer to just eat it. However iv not been sick for three weeks now, and the nausia is next to none so have no excuses. On day three of being thoroughly back on plan and im enjoying the excitment of knowing im being good. Although had a blip last night, my issue is self control. :(
How are you finding slimmingworld? xx

:wavey::wavey::wavey: hey Fern pleased to meet you :D

Having lost just over 5 stone last year, I have been off plan since a xmas holiday to Prague and I have found myself with a gain of 1 stone :eek:

I restarted my journey on Tuesday and already feel so much better in myself and loving being back with sw. I can't get back to class til the end of May but can't wait.

I have 6 stone to lose so hopefully I can pull my finger out and get it done.

By the way congratulations on the baby x

Love it and totally obsessed with it. Got another stone to lose I think, my c may disagree, not set my PAT yet. I am within the healthy range now so dont want to go to low. Did it years ago and realised now I looked too skinny when I got to target so a bit more careful now. Just need to lose a bit more tummy and hips, the usual I suppose.

I think you're right Fern. I have gotten slightly obsessed with reaching that magic number. Glad to hear the nausea is gone, so hopefully you will start to feel better and CONGRATS!

I remember you but I'm more of a reader than a poster, so you may not recognise me!

Been a SW convert for just over a year now, think I'm starting to close in on target but not really sure what that target will be!!

Hollys_nan.. what a fab loss! you must be so chuffed to be so close. Its good that you are aware of what is healthy and looks good for you! totally rooting for you to hit that magic target soon :D

soccormom, i recognise your name- but there are so many members on here with simalar screen names i may be mistaken.. congratulations on your loss!! Somtimes life doesnt half get in the way hey! .. you can get it back off though and the last little bit.. i bet you really do look great already though!

cakey- your little boy is beautiful! I think im carrying a boy. I love the name isaac but OH isnt keen, i love Thomas- he loves theo.. we cant agree and im secretly harbouring a love for the name xavier but OH absoloutly detests so its out. bummer. I hope your enjoying sw? enjoying it is key! i loved that 'full of so much positivity and determination and excitment for the future' you have as a newbie. cling on to that!

Laura i do remember you! choosing Target is hard, somtimes you dont realise it straight away either, when your happy though youl wake up one day and think 'yeah, this is right for me' :D good luck finding the right weight for you and massive congrats on working so hard and getting there.


xx
shrimpy- you have to stop when rights for you, but i really had to fight to get that half a stone off, and i becaome obsessed- and in the end i couldnt even maintain it and a close friend told me he thought i was more attractive with the half a stone one. cheers then! lol

Thank you :) I'm with your OH I love the name theo too and if we ever have another boy thats the name I want. My OH wasn't keen on Isaac at first but after a while and some gentle prodding from me he came round in the end haha

Unfortunatly for me no amount of proding, or nagging is getting me any closer to Xavier, so i will have to just let it go. Damn him!
I want thomas as he will be named after my eldest brother who has been like a dad to me growing up, and so its important to me. I like Theo, but dont love.. i dont know.. it just doesnt 'feel right' but OH is pushing for it.. we'l see what happens at the birth! ... if its a little girlie we are set on Penny. <3

LOL, true Fern. my body seems to say 8st 8 is perfect and it doesn't mind 8st 9 but it really doesn't like 8st 6- which is what I want to be! I think I shall listen to you and call this week... :D

i actually read this ^ and think..' did i used to be that bad!?' LOL but i was so i totally get it! .. i tell you now.. you wont be 8 st 8 the entire time of maintaining and thats what you have to get your head around. Maintaining my 10st 1 target meant anything between 9st 13 and 10st 4/5 on the naughty occasion.. fluctuating is part of maintaining, thats why you have a 3 lb leway either side honey! ... seriously though, when people ask your weight.. youl say 8 and a half stone.. because 8.6 and 8.8 still make you 8 and a half stone! LOL your a silly sausage, but i am too! call Target and be super proud of yourself babe.
