    Hello! I have been lurking for a while and thought i would say hi!
    I am starting a new job in Jan (which i didn't think i would get because i am so big). But when i did i thought thats it - you can't avoid the weight issue any longer (plus getting the job was a huge esteem boost!!)
    I haven't got much support from my family, only from my mum and sister. The rest of my family either don't care or are just downright nasty. My auntie always makes quips like 'mirror mirror on the wall who is the fattest of them all' and even sent me a birthday card last week with fatty u as the title.
    So a forum like this is lifeline really, a place to get support and advice, have a laugh and a cry. And i am starting slimming world next week which i am nervous about, but hearing people on hear has really inspired me! I do have a lot!!!! to lose though, and sometimes wonder if i can do it

    Anyhoo thanks for listening and i hope to be as successful as you all :gen126:

    That's crappy about your family. At least you know you will have support and understanding here. Going to class is excellent, I'm hoping to afford it in the new year. Just think, new job.. new start. You can do it x

    Hey well done Klairbear, i think you have done the hardest bit by deciding you have to do something! Groups are great for motivation tips and ideas. I joined SW in January, then i had a few months off and just joined back last tuesday. Even second time round for me was a bit scary but well worth it, a remember next week someone else will probably join and you wont be the newbie anymore lol!!

    Good luck on your journey and keep posting! :)
