With a bit of will power im going to do it!!

Hello, after nearly 4 weeks of SW ive found this website and have to say i LOVE it!!
So why did i join SW?? Well i have 2 very active children (aged 3 and 1) and they keep me on my toes i must say! it was getting to a point where i was having no energy with them, i was getting tired so quicl, the weight gain started shortly after i was diagnosed with a serious illness a few years ago, a mix of medication and depression led to comfort eating and when you have no metabolism like me well the scales say it all, i couldn't go on watching my weight creeping up and up, i hated myself, i was getting to the point where i felt people were looking at me, judging me for my size, i worried the kids would get bullied when they went to school because of me, i didn't want that and i didn't want the life i was creating for myself!!
So Ive joined SW and i love it, i love the diet and i love the group we have there! I started beginning of June with my first target being to lose 2 stone by our family holiday on 2nd September, So far ive lost 10 1/2 lbs of that so just got to work hard to get my goal.
With the kids eating all things i love....chocolate cakes crisps it really takes a lot of effort not to nick one here and there or when they have there dinners if it was something i liked id finish there dinner, now all i think about is how many syns would it have,
But anyway im going to post my progress and when im having a off day lol! Good Luck to everyone i really hope you all achieve your goals as i hope i get mine!! x:D

Welcome to the forum and well done for deciding to record everything ..... you'll gain so much more confidence ... looking forward to watching your weigh loss progress :)
Well today ive been bad -not my fault i may just add!!, went for a lovely swim with a SW friend, stopped of at the local supermarket, when she recommends meringues as there only 1/2 syn each. me having a major sweet craving going on thought wow fab ill have 4 and thats only 2 syns...anyways after gorging on 4 large meringues in a space of no more than 5 minutes, i then think hmm im going to double check the syns online - 3 SYNS per large meringue!!!...well considering i'd already had 7 syns already this morning im over the allowance! Bless her she felt so guilty, needless to say i shall be sending her on a guilt trip for the next few days till weigh in!!

Moral of this story is never take what someone says for granted if it tastes good you probably should stop after 1 bite and check the syn value not after you've completely stuffed your face!! :sigh:
