    to introduce myself... *sings* im a man of wealth..... oops :doh:... got sidetracked again!

    Seriously though guys...
    -My names' Wyrd and I'm new to this lovely little community! (yes.. the name fits I know! :D)

    I've been reading along, love what I've stumbled across and felt inspired to register which doesnt happen often.

    Some 5 years ago I mustered the courage to go to my first slimming world class having tried all sorts of fad diets to no successful outcome except and increased amount of self loathing.
    Slimming world changed all that!!!!! :flowers:

    I managed to lose 3.5st and drop 3 dress sizes and whats best of all is I have managed to maintain (give or take a lb or two every now and then) my weight!

    Changes in circumstance resulted and in me moving and leaving slimming world.

    I am now ready to make the effort and finally get to my target weight... Feeling disheartened by my current financial situ & inability to rejoin I was given a kick by all the inspirational stories and support I have seen here, reminding me how much fun and how rewarding it is to follow a s/w plan!
    I think I can do it for me.... fingers crossed without going to class...

    So a thank you is due and I hope this will be a mutually joyous relationship!

    Thank you!!
    I'm actually really excited... I think its the weigh in and the discipline that it promotes which I will miss but I'm confident!
    Have to stand on my own two feet sooner or later. :)

    Thank you Cobweb!

    Not always so chirpy I can assure you!
    Having a good day.... got myself organised.
    Porridge, mugshot, Ryveta & Mullerlight for lunch/breakkie....

    Being in control & prepared makes me feel good.
    Keeping it up is the hard bit!

    Thank you though.... really appreciate the kind words!!
