Morning everyone!

I signed up to body optimise yesterday - I find it hard to get to a class near me - they're all in the day and my husband works 300 miles away in the week, so I'd need to take all 4 children with me to an evening class - not ideal, plus the times don't work in well for them, anyway.

I'm 40 (eek!) with 4 children aged 12 to 15 months. I've done SW before (once) and WW (about 5 times) and usually lose a stone and then start messing around and give up. However, with my weight at 13st 6 and at 5' 2", I need to get myself in control. Plus I've been advised to lose some weight re some gynae issues post a hysterectomy at the beginning of this year.

My initial target is 12stone,, then 11 stone, then 10 stone. I'm not sure if that would still get me in the healthy range (I'll check at some point, but that's a way off yet!) but that would make me about a size 12 - something that I haven't been since I got married 15 years ago :)

I'm looking to use up stuff that I have at home already before I go buying more things, so you may see some odd choices - but we have things in the cupboards/ freezer that only I will eat, so they have to get used up at some point :p

Off to get some breakfast now, I think!

Odd food choices - you sound like you were made for me! :D

Really do hope you're finding it OK to get your head around this second time - there is a new day called Extra Easy that was recently introduced, I don't know if you've heard of it? It might be worth having a look at the sticky threads in the SW section of MiniMins, they always help :) And I hope we can all help you as your own mini personal support group that is there for you 24/7!

Love,

:welcome: to the forums greent! Sorry to hear that you've been having troubles with finding meetings and support near you. Hopefully now you've joined this place we can be of some help for you, everyone is lovely here and the place is a good inspiration too.

I understand how easily you can put weight on with gynae problems. I have endometriosis and its easy for me to put it on too.

Hope to see you around soon, looking forward to hearing your journey!
