New :)

Hey all,

I'm Bex and just found this site. Have stumbled across it a few times looking for recipes so thought I would sign up and see what it's all about, contribute to it and hopefully make some wonderful slimming friends.

I follow Slimming World and have been going to meeting since end of April this year. Last night was an amazing weigh in for me - 5lb off :D Club 10 award :D 2 stone award :D Down into next stone :D and I won Miss Slinky in my group :eek:. So feeling really positive about my journey now. The last three weeks up to this one were very very hard and I came very very close to leaving and quitting, giving up which is something I said I'd never do. My consultant is amazing and supported me completely and I'm so glad I stayed now :)

Not really sure what else to put here...I'm sure I've rambled enough but yeah :) That's me!

Thank you all - was feeling amazing until yesterday. On the implant and haven't had TOTM for nearly 3 years and then yesterday, BAM! Scales are saying 7lb gain in the last 30 odd hours :( I know its probably inevitable to put on at this time (always used to) but any advice on anything I can do to limit the gain? Maybe someone else has the same problem? Thanks guys.
Hey Miss Chatty Bex,

Well done on the weight loss so far - a real inspiration! :D
Keep the good work up!
I find chatting to like minded people on this site really helps me stay focussed.
Look forward to chatting with you again...

I need all the help I can get :D

Thanks emmaholl - Looks like you are doing great too :) I'm really liking it here. I stick to the plan so much more when I can talk about it with others who understand the emotional aspect of it too. it's really not just a physical thing for me and I think theres something very special about talking with other people who might be able to relate the the vulnerable way you can be sometimes when dieting. it's a lot of pressure, emotionally, physically, mentally - well for me hahahaha- probably not for anyone else.

But, lovely to meet you :) hope to chat soon! x
Misschattybex. I can fully relate to you ! I know exactly how to diet and why ! For me there is no physical issue stopping be however what my emotions ate like and how u feel abt urself do !! What is it ? U hate the way u look to the point ud rather not look at urself in the mirror and even when undo u criticise everything u see !! U know ud feel so much more happier and contented without that fat bulge and a$$ but can u stop urself on a bad day....nope !!

Well done on the success u have made so far and look forward to hearing more abt yr weightloss ! :)
Hello, and well done on your loss so far, you are doing brill! TOTM is always a STS or gain week for me too, even when I have been really good, I've been told fluid helps but not noticed anything dramatic. Best of luck Kaz :)
Hey all,

Hope you've having a better week than me!!

Good Luck for tomorrow Kazxox!!

Thank you guys :) I've been going since May :( so it's taken a long time. I got to 1 st 12 lb off end of August and then had a bad time of it to be honest, put on 1/2 stone for no reason :S really confused me. Think it was related to exercise somehow.. But lost 9lb in the last 5 weeks so back on track now :)
