    Hello there :)

    I'm going to see my local LLC on Tuesday and am hoping to start the next week. Last year I joined Minimins whilst did Slimming World for about 6 weeks. It worked well, but there was a lot of stuff going on at home and I didn't stay on it. At the end of November I told my husband that our marriage was over, but it took until the middle of March this year until he moved out. We've got a 3 year old little boy so it's been a massive adjustment for all of us, but I now feel ready and eager to tackle this weight. I have about 7 stone to lose in total, 5 of which I put on in the 8 years I was with my husband!

    I'm terrified and excited in equal measure :D Looking forward to being on the board.

    Still looking for the one !
    Good luck ladies. This plan is one of the few that actually works for me, a committed overeater and foodie. It really helps with tackling our issues around food, and why we use it to over eat. If that doesn't change after any diet we will return to our old bad habits and be back to the begining !

    The boards are a great source of support, suggest you write a diary gives people the chance to input in your journey and can really help sort your head out.

    Enjoy the journey.

    Onwards and downwards xx
