    faffing about
    Hi all

    Rejoined sw last night after faffing about for a couple of years. I lost 4 1/2 stone 2 years ago then after a number of stressful life events fell off the wagon big time and just couldnt get back on again. Hence the rejoining and the horror of the first weigh in. I've not only put back on the weight I lost but an extra stone for good measure. :cry:

    Have recently lost my mum and again turned to food for comfort. After several sleepless nights due to heartburn and feeling what the extra weight does to you - back pain, lack of motivation, lack of self esteem, general tiredness I could go on but I'm in a positive mood;)

    Just wanted to say hi to everyone and a happy fitter and slimmer new year.

    Oh Vanda, Sorry about your recent problems- so sad to loose your mum- and sadness is such a trigger for wt gain. This really is a lifelong battle for so many of us.

    You did so well for loosing 4.5 stone last time- I'm sure you can get into that zone again and starting is the hardest thing- once you get into the plan again the wt should fall away and your health return.

    Wishing you all the best. Go Girl!

    Hi Vanda,

    You obviously understand your triggers so hopefully you'll become more able to avoid them with the help of SW and the friends you make on here. Well done for taking that massive stop of rejoining and welcome to minimins! xx
    You sound like you've had enough of being controlled by food and feeling ill, and you've been really successful before. You'll be fine!!! Plus it's even easier now with EE!!
    Good luck xx

    Vanda. I know where you are. I lost 3 1/2 stone before having some naff medication that caused depression and weight gain. and I put it all back on and an extra stone. When I got my head back in the place where I knew I could do this again I came back to SW. I feel stronger because I KNOW I can do this and when I have STS or gains I dont mind because it WILL come off and I know this. So Im sure you wont be disheartened you'll be an important member of this forum who knows the highs and lows and the end result.
    You'll do it - you've got the power!

    Hi Vanda and welcome. I am so sorry to read of your loss I can only imagine what you are going through at this time.
    The main thing is that you have made the effort to go back. Forget about how much you have or havent gained...you are doing something to sort that out now and the main thing is to look ahead.

    Take care and good luck with your journey.

    xx

    Hi lovely, sorry to hear about your mum, I lost mine last year too and it caused a lot of emotional eating for me. **hugs**

    It's disheartening gaining weight isn't it but I am really sure that you can do it again. This diet.. if you can call it that is something you can do for life so there is no reason why it can' stay off.

    Welcome back xx

    Welcome back to SW and welcome to Minimins! Sorry to hear you've gone through everything you have - well done for being here and good luck on your journey.

    It's already been said, but it's true - this forum is supportive in all matters, so feel free to chat about any other stresses as well as SW topics. It's a lifeline to many of us and when I joined I not only gained support but a lot of friends too :)

    All the best in your journey - don't worry about the weight gain and it's friends - you've lost it once and you can and will lose it again. Just start a fresh and enjoy it.

    I know exactly how you feel as I'm right there with you.Last year I had an awful year, went to about 4 funerals, lost my cat, car failed its mot and a variety of crappy events which meant I turned to what I thought was my best friend, food!It's always the same for an emotional eater like me!Anyways I have put 2009 and the weight I put on behind me and I am ready for 2010 and my weight loss!Was back at group last night, made a committment with a 12 week countdown and even offered to take the money every week for my leader, all steps to help me focus(although my wedding in june is a huge one)!Thank you for the warm welcome and I hope to get to know you all a bit better;-)
