    Hi, my name is Dave, I'm 32 and returning to Slimming World but its my first time on here. I first joined Sep 2010 and left around April this year at a weight I was reasonably happy with thinking I would go it alone with what i had learnt. Well I have eaten a large slice of humble pie (how many syns? ;)) and am back on SW with my first weigh-in tomorrow.

    The bad news is I am annoyed with myself for becoming so slack with my diet and starting to pile it back on, the good news is I am back, I didn't put it all back on so don't have my work cut out quite so much, and have set a more achievable target this time!

    Hi all !

    Hi and welcome !!

    Hope all goes well on your re start. Doing it alone is so hard and its easy to slip back into our old ways I for one need to group to keep me on plan ! Along with this forum that is fantastic as am sure you will find out :)

    Hi Dave. Best of luck with your restart. Don't be too hard on yourself for slipping back, instead praise yourself for doing something about it so quickly.

    thanks. I had to do it, first weigh-in later today, been a tough first week but I've had to fight through it as i remembered last time feeling horrible on the first week and i know it passes, the first few days are the worst! yeah i was amazed how one week of being slack turns into 2, and before you know it you have piled the pounds (and stones) on. I know if i didn't start again now i would have been back to the weight i was when i last started and then more as well probably!
