New and scared!!


Hi all, im a newbie to this website and am starting on the SW diet. I am really determined to stick to this diet and i know that i need to as i have at least 8 stone to lose.

I could really do with some friendly help and advice along the way ?

A bit about me...im 34, with 2 children and a OH that loves me regardless. He's very supportive.

Oh, and ive just quit smoking (new years eve), after smoking for around 15 years! Doing so well that im making the other big change that i need...the weight!

I want to be healthy...be able to play with my children...and be confident in the way i look.

I will do it...i will lose the weight...

Hope to speak to some of you soon ??

hi Yeomy and :welcome: to the forums! You have definitely come to the right place - everyone on here is lovely, very friendly and there is plenty of support and advice available. Congrats re making the decision to quit smoking - think of all the money you will save which you can then spend on new clothes when you have lost some weight. My one tip - break down your main weight loss goal into mini goals and treat yourself when you achieve each one - it makes losing the weight that little bit easier. Remember you are doing this for you and no one else :)

Wishing you the very best of luck on your weight loss journey
