I have been on and off SW for a couple of years now. But my weight has creeped up and I'm now 13 stone 10 and officially obese shock I am so annoyed with myself, and feel so low.

Anyway I have a holiday and a wedding at the start of July so want to get serious this time. Ultimately I want to lose 3.5 stone overall, but feel that 2 stone would be manageable - it would be 2 pounds a week until July.

Anybody fancying joining me? Please!! I need all the help I can get!

I will! I'm joining SW on Weds morning. I suspect I'm around the same weight as you, so would love to do it with someone. My aim is 2.5 stone by mid-August, so also around the same goal.
I've also signed up to a boot camp. Am horribly fat and feel uncomfortable and fed up. So. This. Is. It.
Shall let you know the damage on Weds and once I've seen the plan (no idea about it), I'll be good to go.

Me please, I've 3 and a bit stone to loose altogether, was at sw target this time last year blush. But have completely fallen off and it's all crept back in plus some more. Like you I feel fat and miserable and then I eat more rubbish blushhmm. We have holiday booked mid way through June and I have literally nothing that will fit me at the moment and no funds to buy new!! Will weigh in in a bit and will get on the wagon tomorrow, too much chocolate here today!!

Me please. 14 stone and miserable.

I can't do much exercise at the moment with DS being off school, but planning on doing Pilates at least 3 times a week. Food I can do now. I do eat healthily if you ignore my periodic binges on crisps, but my portions match those of DH. blush

I will. I have recently rejoined SW too. I doubt I will lose 2lb a week, weight loss doesn't shift fast for me at all. I've never lost more than 2lb in one week (apart from first week) and i average less than 1lb a week even when taking it seriously. Luckily I enjoy eating the SW way and it's better than continuing to gain weight.

I think I can lose a stone by July so that's my aim ;) I'm officially obese too...

I'm in! I will be joining on Thursday night! I am going on holiday mid June, including a week in Miami and I know that I will feel shit amongst the beatiul people if I don't lose weight before i go!
I will weigh in on thurs night!
I am heavier than all of you though (I think I am just under 15 stone) shock

Fedupoftheheat Sun 27-Mar-16 08:41:32

I'm in too. I weigh 13.3 and my DS is one tomorrow, so it's about time I lost the baby weight. I live abroad so no SW here although I do have some books to follow.
My aim is 2 stone by the end of July, as I'm coming back to the UK for good.
Have any of you looked at ? It's a website written by a bloke and he lists lots of SW receipes. It's worth a look. I'm on holiday on Friday for a week but determined to get serious after that!

HungoverLikeaSpunMoorhenChick Sun 27-Mar-16 13:42:52

Well, I'm guessing at 14 tbh. blush

Horrible feeling I'm more, but 14 I can cope with as a number without giving up and crying. sad

bonnie1981 Sun 27-Mar-16 14:04:27

Me please. I'm 15 stone 3lbs and want to be at the most 12 stone. Still overweight but comfortable if that makes sense.

I'm a crap cook though, I tried making some slimming world recipes but didn't like them so not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I think I will be mainly concentrating on 'grab and go' or easy to make foods like free fruit, mullerlights, soups, omelettes/scrambled eggs, toast and meat I can just shove on the george forman.

TaintedAngel Sun 27-Mar-16 16:01:48

Me too! If I can actually get started. Im 5ft and 15st. Need to shift 5st. Feels impossible. My problem is I have zero imagination for meals, and im so bloody fussy. Starting is the hardest part, so hoping I can get some decent meal ideas sorted so I can get started!

Coffeecupempty Sun 27-Mar-16 16:21:30

Me too please. I'm officially at my biggest just over 11st which is really big for me! Have done slimming world before and I know it works. Have my sisters wedding coming up and went shopping for bridesmaids dresses yesterday, she took pics of me in each style of dress she liked and I looked awfulconfused was definitely the kick up the arse I needed! Would be nice to get slim for the summer.

sidsgranny Sun 27-Mar-16 16:25:30

Me too! Joined SW online but to be honest haven't got my head around it! Am 5ft 6" and weighed this morning at 14st 1.5lbs, the biggest I've ever been! Want to lose 3st. Certainly need a big kick up the arse so would welcome the support!

Stellar67 Sun 27-Mar-16 16:27:06

I'm 12 and a half and stuck. Need to lose at least 2 stone. Like to have likeminded people to bounce off.

ScrambledEggAndToast Sun 27-Mar-16 16:36:25

Me, me, me!! Can I join?!! I weigh 10st 6lb and am only 5 foot blush My BMI is around 28. I have literally never been this fat.

thumbsupforthesixbillion Sun 27-Mar-16 16:48:05

Another joining! I'm 5'9 and most definitely over 15 stone, too scared to weigh myself blush ! Hoping to TTC for our first in the autumn but need to shift loads some weight beforehand!

Can anyone remind me of the SW principles? I'm going to use in conjunction with myfitnesspal to keep me on track.

Rosa Sun 27-Mar-16 16:56:40

I joined SW online and the food was fine. However with the exercise thing I got so cross with it as it said I wasn't doing enough - ( 5x a week hard aerobic exercise, 2x weights plus rowing .....I did a 42k dragon boat race and it said not enough ) I emailed / contacted the SW help and got a really unhelpful response so it put me off from paying out more money ..... I need to loose more and am in a stale mate . I will join you but I am in kilds not pounds Sorry !!!

BitchyHen Sun 27-Mar-16 17:05:24

Count me in please. I joined SW two weeks ago and I have lost 4 1/2 lbs but I know I will need lots of support to keep me on track.

ChampagneTastes Sun 27-Mar-16 17:13:04

Right, yes I would like to join but can I join from next week?? I know that's crap but I've got so many lunches, meet-ups and drinks arranged this week that I don't stand a chance (I rather enjoyed that stealth boast!)

I am currently around 12.6 stone. Two stone lost would be amazing but I think unlikely but I'm definitely needing to do SOMETHING.

September14 Sun 27-Mar-16 19:18:00

Me too please, I rejoined last Tyesday I've been 100 % so hoping for a good result 😀

Stargazing25 Sun 27-Mar-16 20:16:29

Also me! Not rejoining but using old books to start the diet again. I'm only 5'1.5" and pretty much tipping the scales at 12 stone. So unhappy but find it hard to stick to anything. I'd like to lose about 3 stone.

I'm considering doing the old red and green days. Does anyone else still do that?

TheHobbitMum Sun 27-Mar-16 20:29:36

I'll be joining sw a week on Monday (pay day need to come first lol) using the offer on the website. I was with sw a boat 18mths ago and lost 4 stone and have put on 2.5 again sad Ugh, need to shift the weight and get out of a rut so back to it I go smile

lostlalaloopsy Sun 27-Mar-16 21:31:49

Thank you to everyone for posting, I'm so glad I've found people in the same boat.

My weigh in at SW is usually Monday, but due to bank holiday it will be on Tuesday this week. I'm dreading going back, they must think I'm taking the total piss!

My main problem is snacking. I am fine with making and eating SW meals, it's all the snacking on crap unhealthy thing in between. I really need to start counting all my syns instead of thinking that one bit chocolate won't count if it's small.

Usually I don't go out much, but typically I've got a spa day and meal with mates next wkd - really not looking forward to being in a swimming suit next to them!! But going to be super good all next week for it.

I am so fed up of feeling so crap about the way I look, I need to do it this time!

We can all do this!!

And has anyone seen the ylimesalad page? It's by a woman who has lost over 11st on SW and is full of great recipes. I also follow her on Instagram.
