    That's a cue for a song if I ever there was one.

    Just to introduce myself. I have been a serial dieter for many many years and have now decided something really has to be done.
    I am a mother of two boys, which in itself should keep me slim, but I am a self-confessed carb and choc junkie. :(
    I am 36, 37 at the end of the year and I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I am so disgusted at myself, I won't let my husband see me. The light has to be off before I get ready for bed. It is turning in to somewhat of a nightmare. It's a sad day when your spare tyre is bigger than your chest. :rotflmao:
    Anyway, I cannot do it on my own and really need support to get this sorted out.
    Starlight is a very close and dear friend of mine and it was her that introduced me to this forum. If I can do half as well as she is doing I will be more than chuffed. She is an inspiration. We have been on so many diet journeys together, what's one more. Lol! Hope mine is as successful as hers right enough.
    Anyhoo, that's me. Going to do my Tesco online tonight and stock up.
    The start of a new month and a new me.

    Welcome to Minimins! You are definitely in the right place for support - this forum is brilliant for that! Actually, this forum is brilliant for everything (a chat, to let of steam, advice, support...you name it, you'll get it here).

    Good luck with your diet, looking forward to seeing how you get on.

    Thankyou for your replies, ladies.
    I am feeling motivated at the moment and hopefully I can keep it up.
    Big WW shop tonight and then get started.
    I have just been talked into doing the Moon Walk next year by one of my neighbours. She says that should give me some motivation. Have to be fit for that. A whole year away, so hopefully I should be super slim and fit by then. You up for it Starlight? :)

    Thank you ladies for making me feel so welcome.
    Well off to a bad start right away. At toddler group this morning with my 3yr old and had a couple of choc biscuits. Nightmare. Although I am hoping I have not totally blown it today. Will try to include them in my points or make up for it tomorrow.
    I am so bad at dieting. No will power, that's my problem. On here typing to stop me from eating. How bad is that.
    Off to get wee one from nursery, so that should kill another wee bit of time.
    Anyhoo, fingers crossed for a decent loss this week. :eek:

    Just wanted to say 'Hi' and 'welcome' really. I am sure you will be fine on WW and you get loads of supprt ond advice on here, so anything you need just give us a shout.

    Oh and by the way about the biccies, can't you point them, they may not be as many as you think, thats the joy of WW you can eat what you want in moderation as long as you point it.

    Good luck Hun

    Love Busy XX

    Hello you!

    You can do it I KNOW you can *HUGS* Just count those biccies into your allowance. Did your Tesco stuff come today? We'll get you into the swing of this again in no times pal, honestly.

    How bout we get together later in the week

    Speak soon and step away from those biccies

    Counted my points up and included the biscuits and it was still within my limit. In fact I managed to save one point. Have managed to stay away from the biscuits and seem to be doing ok.
    Using my WW cook book every day. Made spaghetti and meatballs from it last night and they were actually quite nice.
    Need to claw back some points today as I was at our Toddler group'a AGM last night and one of the mum's brought up wine, cheese and biscuits and crisps. I did not have any wine, but have to confess to a few crisps and crackers.
    Feeling confident right enough that i will have made it up by weigh in on Monday. :ashamed0005:

    Well it all sounds good - I'm impressed that you managed to resist the wine... That's one of my biggest weaknesses (and chocolate, and biscuits, and... oh you get the idea).

    How's it going so far?
