    :D Hi everyone!
    I noticed this forum and thought how good it is to talk to others in the same position!
    Although I have lost 6 stone to date - it has taken me 5 years of losses and gains, ill health, stress, different diets and a HUGE niggle called diabetes.
    I am only 28 and got diagnosed with diabetes type 2 from being so over-weight. So 5 years ago I started the long slog to loose weight. I met my fabulous boyfriend 14 months ago and he has helped me kick-start the weight loss again and supports me and keeps me in-line when I start to loose faith or the will-power is running a bit low. I joined slimming world 11 weeks ago. So far I have lost 19.5 pounds and I am hoping to loose about another stone and then re-asses. I have managed to get my sugar levels within the guidlines and hope you can all help me out a bit along the way! its so easy to slip yet so hard to correct.

    Thank you everyone.
    Lost another 2.5 this week at SW and also got!! ready?? Slimmer of The Week, Slimmer of The Month, Club 10 Award and 'Woman of The Year'.
    I must be the most hated woman in the group won everything except the raffle! I felt good - but then felt bad for me getting all the awards!
