    Hi everyone . I have just discovered this site and must say you are all so amazing and inspirational. I have recently started a new job on a maternity unit and very long shifts of fourteen hours and awkward times. A few months ago i lost a stone attending a sw group however i lost motivation and could no longer afford each week as work meant i missed some. I have unfortunately put some of my weight back on and every day i feel so so down. I exercise but am naturally quite big despite playing football and attending the gym. I am lookin to start again with the info at home however i am hoping i can keep with it and seek support from you all . . . . To get me started i am hoping to refresh my mind with some low sin chocolate and sweet things as well as some quick lunch and supper dishes i can take to work on my long days. Any advice or tips to help me get re started i would be so so pleased with as at the moment i am feeling so down for a 22yr old . . . X please help!

    Hi Abbie! If you work shifts and let your SW consultant know in advance that you can't come to group because of this, then I believe you don't have to pay for the missed class.

    For meal ideas I suggest you use the search box at the top of this page. Good luck with your journey :)

    Hi Abbie!

    I am starting again after losing (and putting back on) 21lbs earlier this year. I fell off the wagon due to a house move, kitchen renovation, wedding stress and getting lazy. I am determined to stick with it this time - photos at my MIL2Bs wedding made me realise I do not want to be the size I am now when I get married!

    I find this site so helpful and great for finding recipes etc. The best tip I have recieved is frozen curly wurlys as a snack. 6 syns for a full size one and when frozen they last ages, really helps my chocolate cravings.
    Also the recipes on here are brilliant. Well done on losing a stone, you have showed yourself you can do it once so you can do it again!
