Hello everybody!! so I'm very new to slimming world, went to my first group meeting last night (august 20th) so il be getting weighed at group every Wednesday I have so many reasons why I need and want to lose weight, but the 1 main one at the moment is I'm getting married in November 2015 and I refuse to walk down the aisle looking the way I do now!! My amazing and very supportive fiancé is helping me as much as he can and keeps telling me he loves me exactly the way I am now which is obviously lovely but I find it so hard to believe how anyone can love anyone that looks like I do! Another one of my very main reasons why I need to lose weight is for our daughter, she's 4 years old in October and I've only been able to run around the park with her about 4 times!! She needs a slimmer, healthier and fitter mummy to play with! .. Plus the thought of her growing up with out her mummy breaks my heart which I know has a high chance of happening if I don't do something about my weight. I have absolutely no idea about what I am and aren't allowed to eat and how to work out syns as the lady in group last night didn't explain it very well to me, but luckily she was just a stand in leader as the main lady who does my group each week just had a week off, but any help from any one on here will be very much appreciated!! So I have some mini goals like everyone and they are .. Lose at least 3 stone by Christmas, hopefully that is realistic?! Lose 7 stone 6 pounds (which will take me to exactly 10 stone) by my birthday and the half marathon in May!! (YES I AM SIGNING UP TO THE HALF MARATHON!!) and then my ultimate goal which is to get to between 8 and 9 stone for my wedding in November next year!! Soo excited!! i will be posting my food and exercise in here every day (if I remember!) so if anyone wants to join me and help me!! then i will help and support everyone too, as much as I can! Good luck to everyone on this amazing journey!!
