    Hi everyone

    I am back, after a very long absence, and am bigger than ever :(:cry:

    I am at a stage, where I am very depressed, so am determined with your support to get back on track, and get some pounds shifted.

    Here's a little history of what has been happening.

    I recently got married, and am extremely happy with my husband, so have gained a lot of weight, I have never been as big as I am at the moment, so am feeling very bad about myself. My clothes dont fit, and I'm constantly trying to cover up, so that people can't see how big I've got.

    I really want to be healthy, so actually went for a gym induction on Thursday :eek: and am looking forward to starting some exercise.

    I've also been to the doctor, because I am worried about my weight, and the affect it is going to have on me. He has advised me to stick to healthy eating and exercise, and then to go back to see him in 1 month to see how I am getting on. If the weight isn't shifting, he may need to do some blood tests :(

    On a plus side, we have recently booked to go to Egypt in December for our wedding anniversary, so I have to be fit and healthy to look good on the beach, and be comfortable with myself.

    I really hope to start losing weight with the support of all you lovely people.

    Speak soon

    Thank you both for your replies, I really appreciate the support. My husband is great, but really doesn't understand my struggle, because he can eat whatever he wants, and never gains any weight.

    Ann - Good luck with starting in the gym, let me know how you get on.

    Take care
    xx

    I think I'm going to try and write a food plan, to make it easier when I go shopping. I've bought a Pure Points 2 cookbook, which has some really nice recipes in it, some I'm feeling very good.

    Hi Carol and welcome back.

    Its great to have incentives to work towards - break your weight loss down into chunks and think of a great, non calorific, reward to have each time you hit one of your goals.

    Are you going to class or going it alone with Minis?

    Hi

    I am new to this aswell even though you have done it before.
    My incentive is also a holiday in Egypt. I go at the end of July though.
    At the moment I am finding the diet quite easy and am not bored. I get bored very easy, so have found that this forum really helps.
    Good luck

    Hi Carol!

    I know the feeling ... I've gained a lot of weight since I got married in 2004 ... so at least you're doing something about it earlier than I did. I was in the "I'm happy, so don't care" frame of mind. Now I realise that even though I'm still very happy in my marriage, I'm not happy with myself.

    Annnnyway - just wanted to say good luck and keep posting!

    I am very much in the same frame of mind as you... I am the heaviest that I have ever been, even when I was pregnant, and I feel sick about myself sometimes...
    Support at home and on here is vital so make sure that you get yourself onto Minis on a regular basis and absorb all the lurvvvve and good vibes

    Thank you all for the welcome!

    I'm even more determined to lose weight now, as we have decided to start trying for a baby in December! I'm so excited, but absolutely terrified at the same time!

    I really want to lose a few stone before even trying for a baby.

    We're obviously not telling anybody that we'll be trying for a baby, but I thought I'd share with you ladies :D
