Darling what a shame, never mind you are here and you are ready to do something about your weight. I used to think I HAD to loose the weight by myself otherwise I was weak.... well to tell you the truth I like the encouragement and support of others, makes it not seem so daunting.
Stick with your points and start a new life style rather than a 'diet', good luck hun xx
im the same, i wont be slim enough for a bikini in july but im hoping to be about a stone from goal! see the thing is for me that ive had 3 kids in 4yrs and my body is wrecked :-( so i dont think ill EVER don a bikini again lol
Use your BFs comment as a challenge,show him you can do this and your doing it for you.
Dont mention to him how your doing just do your thing and remember we are here for you.........He will never understand why you re put on weight as he hasnt tried to but if hes never had a weight problem then he wont think its hard to keep the weight off.
The group support many people go alone and make life long friends,id go alone if I was you that way if your mum doesnt go you wont feel like giving up.
I do it alone at home and I prefer it after going to my local meetings many times.
You have a little to lose I know it wont seem like it to you but before you know it the 1st stone will be gone then you'll be nearly at goal.
God luck you show em xx
