    Hey everyone,

    Iv been on this board before a while ago and did manage to lose some weight but it always stalled and i gave up as i couldn't lose anymore - constantly playing with the same few pounds
    However decided to bite the bullet and rejoin sw tonight at my old class as its a new consultant who iv heard was better and more motivational. Im so so nervous about going as this time im doing it alone, last time my friend came with me.

    Anyways a bit about me... im 25 from Scotland. I want to lose around 2 stone will know how much exactly tonight when im weighed. Iv been struggling to lose weight all my adult life and was diagnosed with PCOS and an underactive thyroid since i was 16, the doctors tell me this is why i am struggling to lose weight but it doesn't stop me wanting to lose. Iv recently been put on thyroxine all be it a very small dose to see if this will help as doctors are very reluctant to give me thyroxine for some reason - i think due to it not staying proper underactive as it has been going from borderline to under for years but last year its stayed under slowly getting worse this is why im now on thyroxine. For my PCOS all they have done is give me the pill to settle my periods, and skin problems.

    Anyways im off to class tonight so wish me luck as im so nervous going back.

    Thanks Kirsty

    Well i went back to class last night and everyone was lovely! The new consultant seems great also :)

    Last night before class i made a syn free soup (Tomato) and asda meat free spaghetti for tonight (I know there some syns will work it out)

    So far so good :)

    Well done for biting the bullet and going back!

    I know what you mean about going alone - when I first joined my mam used to come along with me. She didn't do Slimming World but she came along for moral support. After a while, when I got to know the consultant and members a little more I felt comfortable to go along on my own. Now, more 2 years down the line, I look forward to going to group each week and am even on the social team, helping to process member's payments each week. Having a good C and group have really helped me, so I'm pleased that you have found everyone lovely!

    Hope you have a great first week :)

    Not had too bad of a day thank you chicky :)

    Had the doctors today about the ear and he's only prescribed olive oil drops -_- not done a single thing and this is the second night I've had less sleep than needed to function! I went to bed at 10pm after 2 hours sleep the night before then woke up at 3.30am this morning! Gaaah!

    Planning on doing a load of washing soon, if it stops raining that is so I can put it out on the line, and then go into town to pay my rent and go to the local fruit and veg shop for breakfast and lunch ingredients :) I might even do some spring cleaning too when I get back... I *WILL* wear myself out enough today to get a decent nights kip!!

    It's just a little family run shop! But they do get a lot of business, I guess that's why their prices are low, AND they're smack bang in the middle of town. I'm hoping this stuff will last me the week anyway :D

    I have no idea how I coped, I was working at the time as well as a priority dispatcher for Caterpillar (the digger company) so I was running around like a headless chicken all day, locating priority parts out of massive containers of other parts or having to leg it to the other side of the warehouse to check the stock whilst on the phone to the company! I used to get VERY thirsty, I remember that, and used to smoke loads on the lunch break to make up for the food haha!

    Take a healthy snack with you for after you've been weighed, then you can sit there and munch while you're having your image therapy! Ooooorrrr do what I did and chew your arm off until you could make it to the nearest chippy for a doner kebab hahaha! I don't recommend it though :p I'm not sabotaging you! xx
