    Hi all

    Well today I am feeling a bit nervous, I used to do SW about 5-6 years ago, I lost a bit of weight, but not much, but that was me not the diet! I know it works when you stick to it:cool:

    I lost about 3 stone doing calorie counting and exercise a couple of years ago, and achieved that through hanging around this forum and being extremely motivated. Since then I have become ill and was diagnosed last week with Fibromyalgia. The weight I lost has also almost all crept back on me:rolleyes:

    I have tried many times over the last 6 months or so , to get back into the right head space to restart the calorie counting, but I just cannot do it, I have come to the conclusion, that what I need is some support and I need to answer to someone, sounds bizarre I know but I am used to my excuses now. I need to be in a slightly competitive situation, to boost my motivation, sounds bad I know, but I will work darn hard to not be the one that never loses weight at class;)

    So tonight I am nervousley going along to a SW class, on my own:eek: I am really scared, but I know its the only way, I have lost an awful lot of self confidence over the past 6 months, so it really is a big deal for me. I need to shift the weight to help me build on that confidence, with having this Fibro, I already feel pretty useless and the weight i s just making me feel so much worse about myself:cry:

    Anyway, I just wanted to share, my anticipation with you, not sure how much exactly I have put on, will soon find out tonight though.

    Thanks for reading x

    Well done for the bravery it took to come back and will take to get on those scales and face your fears. Once that moment is over with, it is all onwards and upwards from there.

    Welcome back and good luck for your journey xxxxxx

    Hi there and welcome back!

    Once you get over that initial step through the door feeling, it will seem like you have never left. The nice thing is that now there are changes to the plan that suit family life better.

    Good luck!
