    Hi everyone Im Maggie, I used to go to classes, but couldnt stick at going, Ive been trying to lose weight for years literally. Ive got all the sw books, and am going to try with the help of this forum to do it at home. Im 20 stone, and initialy want to get down to 18 for starters. I have a lovely choccie labrador dog, who helps me with walking. What finaly did it was this weekend, I was teaching him to swim in the sea, it was lovely, but I felt gigantic in my cossie, and so awkward ! I really need some encouragement, I know I have to think positively, and know that it is possible to lose weight, despite all my past failures. My mother suffers with very chronic arthritis and is in a lot of pain, I know I risk having the same problem in my old age, if i dont get the weight off. Thanks everyone, look forward to hearing from you all, Maggie xx

    Hi Maggie,

    Good Luck, best thing i have found is making sure i go to the group and stay for the meeting afterwards. It keeps me motivated for the week ahead.

    I am sure you will do really well :)

    There are lots of people on here doing it without going to meetings. I still go to meetings just so I have a clear idea what I weigh, but I find the support here more useful tbh!

    You're off to a good start with the exercise and the belief that you can do it, as well as setting a manageable first goal. So you will!

    Focus on enjoying the free and superfree foods, your tastes will adapt too. And savour your syns as special treats. If you learn to enjoy the plan rather than see it as a deprivation you will be much more able to stick to it. Good luck!

    Good luck :)

    I'm doing SW for the first time & loving it. I do go to group & stay but still learning the plan. I also find loads of helpful stuff on here too so think you'll be fine as you have the books & know the score!

    I have tried doing it from home but need the discipline of being weighed every week at group. Everyone is different and loads of people have lost doing it from home.
    I have found this forum a lifesaver. everyone is so so friendly and helpful with loads of advice and gorgeous recipes to try out.

    I am also re-joining today as need to lose the weight.

    Good luck on your weight loss journey.
