Welcome @Margiepuff you have come to the right place. I had 140lb to lose at the start of my journey but now one year on I have lost 76 pounds. About 8 years ago I lost 112 pounds through diet and exercise But then put it back on and then some. This time round I have joined Slimming world. It is different for me this time round I am menopausal and now have many health conditions that make exercising a challenge. So exercising is done as and when my body lets me.

I hit rock bottom about 2 years ago virtually bedbound with lymphoedema, cellulitis and ulcers in both legs. I needed help for the most basic of tasks. But I swore once I was well enough I would tackle my weight. It took me about 6 to 8 months to get myself in a position where I could start to concentrate on losing weight.

But with the help and support of the lovely people on Minimins I have started to turn my life around. Ulcers all but healed, cellulitis gone and lymphoedema under control and 8 litres of fluid in total gone from my legs. I have stopped blood pressure medication as my high blood pressure is no more. I have reduced my cholesterol tablets. So health conditions I have like MS and Sjogren's are not going away. But my health has improved with the weight loss.

So I am proof even with health challenges we can start to turn our life around. Good luck with your weight loss journey and reaching your goals along the way.

Hello all - today has been a wack day diet wise (didnt blow the carbs but went crackers on the calories!) so im glad i logged in and saw your measages. Tomorrow WILL be a better day - you have inspired me not to give up.

i find that because im so unhappy with myself and feel unable to do the things i used to (socialise, date, go on holidays, go to the pub…. Even walk down a street without feeling awful) the desperation to just look and feel different immediately gets to me and i get frustrated and binge. I’ll have to get past it but its going to be a journey… i think the bottom line is im so angry with myself! When i lost all that weight before i did it from a much less desperate place… i just did it- with no expectation - and it worked! Finding that perseverance was like i won the lottery so now needing to do it again feels like hoping to win the lottery a second time…. Possible but outlook not so positive!

anyway, your stories show that it can be done and i hope i can join you!

@Margiepuff
Firstly, welcome. Can't say enough what an awesome bunch of peeps post on here. We all get the ups and downs of it all and I've always found most people are pretty real about their journey.

Going to ask you, what's the point in getting angry with yourself? Not going to change anything. Identify what went wrong and move on.
Yes the road can seem daunting and long but you are walking it with other peeps here on the same path.

It took me so long to post my actual weight in my profile when I first lost weight years ago but one day it kinda dawned on me...I am what I am. I'm working on it. I need to face up to my reality and not pretend I wasn't 18 stone and like you, unhappy with myself. Accepting it and moving on, for me, was kinda liberating lol.

As the scales came down my confidence grew and omg the first time I could shop in a "normal" shop was amazing. Noticing a fav clothing item was starting to be way too big on me was like woahhh. Small victories right? That's how it needs to be. Look for your milestones and not the finish line.
Coming back again this year after regaining about 3 stone out of the 5 I lost way back, the end was so far away again. I had other motivations to start to loose weight but its not like I didn't need to do it, and esp now with a new type 2 and high bp diagnosis, I need to even more.
I have had small victories already with a lot of ups and downs (on and off the scales - a whole other story) and yes, I get annoyed but I post about it. Not primarily to get advice but to get it out my system. The support and compassion shown to be has been the best by-product of talking about it as well as it helping me to process my struggles and not let them hold me back. (love you all muchly)

You CAN do this. No one else can do it for you but we can be here to make the journey more manageable and help pick each other up.
(I am aware how cheesy some of that sounds but the truth is the truth.)

Make a thread, talk about anything you want to. if you want to post a food diary, include it. Whatever helps keeps you on track. Be honest about your failings as much as your wins. But remember, just because you didn't post it or tack it, doesn't mean it didn't happen (something I tell myself often haha).

Rooting for ya to get off to a great start 🤞 💕

Also peeps, I'm so in for the next challenge, arrived a little late for this one :)

Weigh in day today and I am +3/4 of a lb which I am fine with as know the reason why(grazing and picking in small amounts but it adds up!). Back on it devoutly this week will try and get a few pounds off hopefully this week! Also I have estimated this on my amount adding back on!
