    Hey Guys,

    Well I joined this site months ago and was really motivated...I was doing weightwatchers and feeling really confident...people were saying I was loosing weight and looking really healthy.

    However, since then summer came about, I failed one of my assignments at University so was taking a lot of the time doing that and just stopping following what I was intaking in my body. I suppose that had a knock on my confidence and I went back to my safe place of emotional eating.

    Tonight was a real eye opener...I tried on a dress that I wore at a Christmas party for a wedding this Friday and while it still fitted it was very uncomfortable, a bit tight and was pulled up because of the weight that I had put on. Luckily we ordered 2 sizes and the larger one fits me so I'll be wearing that Friday however that was not an outcome I was expecting.

    I feel really disappointed in myself for putting on how much weight that I have but it has really given me a fight to get back on track. I'm sorry for my ramblings on and hope I haven't bored you into tears but just thought I would share.

    Good luck to all of you guys who are restarting like me :) Hopefully we can support one another!

    Charley :) x

    Ohhhh I hate that realisation feeling, it will get better two days after you restart and you'll get that buzz that you're doing something. I have a similar amount of weight to loose and am only days in so feel your pain! University is a hard time to loose weight, all that time you have to spend sat in the library etc...then there's the alcohol. I lost weight at uni by going out loads, but I didn't do so well in my studies :-/

    Thank you for the support guys :) yes let's totally kick the flabs ass!! Uni is so hard to diet...being a primary teacher and always being around cake and biscuits on placement is difficult! X

    You'll get to your goal weight, dont worry! I'm at uni and I ALWAYS eat the worst foods imaginable when it comes to revising/doing assignments. I guess it's because food is the only pleasure achievable whilst studying hard. If you're not already, try and get lots of exercise at uni, I try to swim 4 times a week because a) I have the time for it (an English student doesn't get that many lectures) and b) it definitely sets me up for studying throughout the day. I hope that helps xxx
