    Hi everyone,
    I have been struggling for a while with my body and how it makes me feel. We all know the story.. Unhappy I eat, content I treat myself. The fridge becomes my best friend and my worst enemy. So nearly 4 weeks ago I decided I had had enough of feeling miserable about muffin tops and breasts the size of a small country. I am following the Slimming World programme (joined last year and was going well until I had to give up my job and could no longer afford the fees) It has all been going well a 9lb loss so far (as of last Saturday) But this week I have become quite scared about losing weight. From the posts I have read thisis pretty normal. I am so glad to have found this site as I know this is going to spur me on to my goal of 11.7 stones.
    Thank you all in advance

    Thank you for the welcome. I was talking to my other half earlier about how I am feeling and typically as a man he had no concept of what I was talking about. He thinks the solution to weight loss is just not eating!!! AS IF !!
    I am unable to join a group at the moment as I work long shifts and would miss more than I would attend so all support on here is appreciated.

    your post made me laugh... my fella is 5' 11" and his weight fluctuates between 10 and half and 11 stone. his advice for weight loss is to skip meals! an example of lunch on a diet from him is a packet of mini snackajacks!!!! he's the funniest bloke i've ever met!

    he still can't get is head around the amount of food i pile on my plate and he's always questioning what i'm eating - i've told him to learn what i can eat on the plan or shut the f up!

    my boyfriend was like that, hes been doing sw now for the same amount of time as i have and has lost nearly a stone.

    before he met me (and before sw) he never used to eat breakfast now i make him, hes 6ft and 11stone 3, a year ago he was 13.7 and now is at his ideal bmi of 21.5 and a size small :eek: he always used to believe that skipping meals and not eating breakfast makes you loose weight but i have proved to him otherwise

    my boyfriend offered me burger king fries yesterday and then soft amarreti biscuits - as if being told to f off once wasn't enough for him!

    What a lovely day I have had..
    Nice lie in this morning , then off to Matalan where I tried on some jeans and shorts.. they looked awful so I saved myself about £22 quid . Headed off to Asda armed with my shop to slim at asda book. Gave up on it after about 15 mins trying to work out some chilled couscous (was hungry and was going to have it for lunch as I was shopping) bought an apple and a banana instead. Bought a food processor for £13 soo exited as I want to chop things and slice them thinly. So coleslaw and homous city here I come. After being out far longer than expected my friend and I ended up at her house, rummaged in my shopping and had a bag of Ryvita Sweet Chilli minis, tub of cottage cheese and some chicken for "lunch". Then to another friends for a cup of tea and finally home to salmon covered in cracked pepper with homemade coleslaw (red onion, cabbage, carrot and extra light mayo) Was great till I had a particulary strong bit of pepper and nearly choked .. how embarrassing would that be. A packet of Rainbow Drops found their way into my mouth and as its Eurovision night I have had to have 2 small fun size chocolate treats to see me through to the bitter end.. however I have strawberries and sliced kiwi in the kitchen calling to me .
    Dumb A** is on the other pc.. has lost a power point presentation he made the other day .. haha that is his punishment for the cowbum burger xxx
