    Hey guys,

    I finally decided to bite the bullet and get back on track and start with Slimming world once again.
    I have been through a lot the past 6 months, I had a little boy in november, had mild postnatal depression and then moved to The Netherlands from London at the end of February. You could say my life has completely changed.

    The first few months of being here I missed my family terribly, I had no friends and I would just lock myself in all day whilst even being too scared to answer the doorbell.

    I decided to get on the scales to see if there had been any damage and I had put on nearly 3 stone since moving here in February.
    I was horrified. I had never ever weighed that much and I felt myself die a little inside. But that was it, enough was enough, I really had to do something - my son is nearly 7 months old now and he will be moving soon - how am I supposed to keep up with him if i'm so overweight?
    We live on the 3rd floor in an apartment block with no lift, those stairs are my enemy at the moment!

    Since starting Slimming world, now at home, I have found it quite hard, I think it's because I lack the motivation of going to group each week to weigh in and I have to self-discipline myself.

    Anyway, i'm finding it really hard, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Jess
    I know where you are coming form when you worry how you will keep up with littlie - My second DD is 14 months now and she is wearing me out - I want to lose the weight not just so I can keep up with her, but because I know her life will be better in other ways too as I hate going out being this big, I am not inclined to go to groups or even to the park as it all seems so much effort and I feel so self concious. I do feel for you as this feeling must be even more acute if you have moved to a different country. Having lost my weight a few years ago, I know what a difference it made to my life and my enthusiasm for getting out and about, and how much my first DD benefitted from that mental attitude. I'm going to try and focus on that to keep me on the straight and narrow - if you really focus on your little one and how much you want to do this to make their life happier, I am sure you'll get there!
    Good luck x

    Motivation is such a great power when it comes to weight loss! if you decided to change your life and start SW again you have at least some motivation!! and this is a good start! for me the best motivation was trying to put my fat ass into my old clothes((( it was the time when my eyes opened very wide!!! good luck to you!! stay strong and motivated! keep going...even if you are going slow...
