Hi All,

I have done slimming world in the past but stopped as I fell off the wagon and went back to my old ways sad
I am roughly 3-4 stone overweight and a size 16. My weight is really really getting me down at the moment! I go on holiday in 6 weeks and at the moment I feel like I wont enjoy myself as I'm so self conscious about being in swimwear and shorts etc.

If there is anyone out there that feels the same as me right now, would you like to be my slimming buddy? I really feel like having someone else in the same boat as me will keep me focused and determined!

Hi, I feel exactly as you do.

I joined today. I am 3.5 to 4 stone overweight and I am fed up of it. I too will be your buddy.

Hi, I am in a similar situation - I am a size 16/18 and want to lose around 3.5 stone. I'm off on holiday next week and will be rejoining slimming world the week after when I get back. My local meeting are on Thursdays.

I was a member about a year ago for a few months and lost about 20lb but have put about 10lb of that back on again...

I have signed up for hockey training for a ladies veterans team. I gave an hour and a half of training tomorrow. I may actually die.

I haven't found the plan to hard to follow but we shall see in 48 hours.

Good luck with the training Helenagrace. Let us know how you get on.

Happy to report that I am not dead! I might not be able to move tomorrow though!

I really enjoyed it and didn't feel judged which I was worried about. I think the "this girl can" campaign is having an effect.

Eating a bit out today as I had to go to the shops for an emergency sports bra this lunchtime and then had to eat really early because of hockey BUT I stayed on plan.

Weigh in tomorrow

Well done Helenagrace

So far I am on plan too.

Didn't suffer too much from post hockey stiffness and I lost 4lbs at weigh in!
