    Hi, this is just a little post to say hi and I'm glad to have found this forum. I've been a lurker for awhile and thought it was about time I jumped in.

    I'm not new to SW, the first time I joined was in 2000 before I got married and I lost a stone in time for my wedding. In 2004 I joined again to lose a few pounds and found out I was pregnant almost straight away. I put on 4 stone during the pregnancy so I was bigger than I'd ever been and though I managed to lose 2 stone of that I've been stuck for about 3 years.

    I've tried other ways of losing weight (WW), I live in Ireland now and there are no SW clubs near me but it's the only thing that has ever worked for me. I still have all the books and remember for the most part how it all goes so I'm going to be doing this on my own.

    So that's me in a nutshell. I'm hoping that you guys will help me get back in the SW groove. I really don't want to see in another New Year with nothing having changed.

    The diet has changed a wee bit due to the introduction of EE but if you remember what you did before then you'll be fine. Good luck!

    I do SW from home, and now 3lbs away from target - doing it alone at home without going to group CAN be done but you need to be in the right frame of mind, which by the sounds of it you seem very determined.
    Good luck on your SW journey xxx

    Thanks for the welcome guys! Just reading all your numbers is really inspiring to me.

    @The Changing Man, I noticed the new addition of EE (which I've not really figured out yet) but I'm hoping that the old Green Day/Red Day is still pretty much the same.
