new here

hi there,
i finally decided 2 wks ago that i had to change my lifestyle so i started the slimming world diet but without going to the meetings, and went to the doctors who prescribed me some pills to help.
i weighed in at the doctors 146kg so YES i have a lot to lose but i know that i can do it because i have to as i have a 2yr old son who i want to see grow up.
im not weighing myself but leaving that to the doctor and will be seeing him on a 4 weekly basis.
any words of advise would be much appreciated:)

The support here is amazing :cool:
Welcome Lincs Lass.....

Don't worry about the over all amount you have to Lose, set your self smaller goals.... being weighed every 4 weeks is great too as you don't get the ups and downs that some of us weekly weigher <and daily weighers like me :) get.

The people here are very supportive... I post all the time to keep me on the straight and narrow :)

Good luck with the plan!

Hello honey

Welcome! and Congrats on the first step! Don't worry about the bigger picture just take it in smaller chunks and set yourself real goals so that you aren't looking at I need to lose xx within a year. I go for 6 lbs in a month or even do it weekly and then you will see real progress. It is amazing how much you can eat!! I love it (well as much as you CAN love a diet LOL)
