    Ok so I wish I'd started this when I started SW 4 weeks ago but got lost with normal posts that I didn't think of doing this.

    My reasons for joining SW are:

    1. I want to be pregnant more than anything else in the world but can't because I need to loose weight and have been told I'll need IVF as I have PCOS but I know loosing weight may change this.

    2. I've been out of action for 3 years now due to a knee injury but have just had an op and one way to help with the improvement of my knee is to loose weight.

    3. I want to be back to where I was when I was 20

    4. I'm 30 next year :cry:

    5. The most important one, I want to live and I want to enjoy life to the full:D. My dad had a major heart attack last year and even though I don't smoke or drink I know being obese increases things like this. I was scared that I was going to loose my dad that I wouldn't want to put him through that so in a way I'm doing it for him but I am doing it for me mainly.

    My first 3 weeks have been very hard, not because I was changing my diet majorly (never fried stuff before) but because for once I could eat all I want of free foods and trying to explain things to the OH was difficult. Ok so I know I'm going to have good days and bad but after last nights WI I'm going to think positive about it all every day.

    Every little loss will amount to the great loss I want:D

    Hi pinktiger, it's hard for us all to take that first step isn't it? Keeping a diary and receiving support on here makes you feel that you're not on your own. Even when you're having bad days people can still give you encouragement to keep going.

    You had a good weigh in last night? And I agree with you, every loss goes a little bit further towards achieving our goals. I've vowed not to be disappointed if I stay the same or lose half a pound or whatever because we will have bad weeks :)

    I look forward to seeing how you progress. Good luck with it :)

    What a fab day

    OMG I have such a fantastic day today, best day this year by far :D so thought I'd best write it down so when I'm feeling blue I can come back here and feel the warmth.

    My OH and I went off to Hamburg today (one of my fave places) in the search of a new winter coat and a very belated birthday present as he was away and not seen anything I liked until today. He is now 700euros lighter but has a very happy wife:D

    Hamburg has a wonderful jewellery shop called Tiffany's and boy it's like a kids dream sweet shop. Oh how I wish I could live in that place. He said "When you reach target I'm going to buy you a charm bracelet and then for every year you stay at target I'll buy you a new charm but if you gain weight ( a stone) then I take one off of you"

    God I love him soooooooooooooooooooooooo much. Never thought he'd think of doing something so sweet :D But today he treated me to a gorgeous necklace and a pair of earrings from there and get this next part a Gucci handbag :D He's going to struggle for ideas for Chirstmas now and my 30th next year now that he's got me these.

    Not only was I spoilt rotten but the day itself was beautiful. The wether was nice, just a little cold but it was dry and sunny. We didn't argue which at the mo is a miracle and we found somewhere for lunch that meant I could eat a SW friendly dish without using syns and I managed to avoid any naughty temptations. So all in all it's been an amazing day :D

    I can loose weight and one day in the not too distant future I will be 9 stone :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
