Hi all, I have just moved over from the Cambridge Diet thread as I have decided to join Slimming World. For the past few weeks in particular I have been struggling with my weight, I had only stood on the scales for the first time in a long time a month or so ago and to my horror weighed a few pounds under 20 stone. I am a professional Dieter and have lost 6 to 7 stone a few times before. Cambridge and a Calorie Controlled diet. I have also been a member of SW before and lost a good few stone. Always put it back on though. Anyway, having tried a few different diets again these past few weeks and thinking about things I have settled on SW once again. It really is the long term plan I need this time and to keep with it. I really need your help here and just putting down my thoughts in a diary I think might help. My wife was a SW consultant for a good few years so I also have her and my children for support. I turn 30 in September and am fed up of the last 15 years of weight troubles, up and down etc. I really want to have dug a hole into my weight loss by September but am looking at the long term as well. I am due to go to group on Tuesday, normally a Monday group. I wanted to put a post on here now though as I feeling low today and struggling. I recently took an exam for work for promotion however am certain I failed as did not complete enough of the exam and managed my time poorly. The results are in at work however I am on leave so have not collected them. Everyone thinks I will pass and says so openly that I feel now under huge pressure as I am positive I have not passed. This is really having an impact upon my self worth at the moment and would not normally mention it but feel getting it typed out in front of me might be helpful. I think I have rambled on enough now but I have appreciated that space to start this diary. I hope in the future to look back on this when in a happier, healthier and lighter place.
