Hi all you lovely slimmers.
I just found this site and love it so I was hoping to be part of it all!
I'm in my late 30's and have 10 stone to lose...and that's the first time I've said that... I can't understand how I got here and didn't deal with this earlier in my life.
Anyway, I joined SW 2 weeks ago and my first week's loss was 4 pounds. I really want to match that again this week. I've been pretty good on the plan but have a history of being super enthusiastic to start off with and then losing motivation. I think being able to log on to this forum might help with that, so can I join the party?
Hope to speak to you soon and have a great week everybody.

Hi debsie! Of course, come join us everyones welcome! Plenty of us mad ones on here so if you ever need a pick me up, just log in and here we'll be!

Well done on your 4lb loss that's great going.

The trick for me was I had to seriously get into the zone and genuinely want to shift the weight. For 18 months I kept saying those famous words "I'll start my diet Monday" but guess what, Monday came and went and so did my intention to start.

But then I started slimming world in jan with good intentions but what the catalyst for me was a colleague saying to me (after I'd been doing it for 3 weeks) "you're doing great on your diet, I hope you keep it up, summers round the corner and it'll be good to see you not hiding behind those cardigans anymore". Sounds silly I know but it made me realise my god you're right, I do use my clothes to hide behind, so that was kind of the kick I needed and the realisation that I don't want to hide behind anything anymore!

I hope you can keep it up! I've lost a stone now and I am loving SW!

Well done again! X


Back to basics!
