Hello, I have been following Slimming world for two weeks now and have lost 6 lb so far which I am quite happy about. I got reminded yesterday why I need to do this, I went to our local park with my two year old and he was desperate to be a pirate on the boating lake so I agreed to take him on, well my 16 and a half stone self at the back of the boat against his 2 stone self at the front did not work and the boat sunk in the middle of the crowded lake. He was screaming and I have never been so embarrassed and burst into tears. Luckily it was only waist deep and I could wade out carrying him. I don't want to be an embarrassment to my son.
