Hi in the same position here, I'm bigger than I've even been and I was pregnant with BIG twins 😀 I'm so embarrassed I can't bring myself to go to a group. It effecting so many areas of my life now.........help

@purplehaze24 if I can do it you can, I've got to the point where I've been too embarrassed to leave the house and see anyone then binge. Walking through the doors was horrible but feel so much better for going.
You can do this flowers

I''m trying to pluck up the courage to re-join this week - I've put back on all the weight I lost and more; I'm just going to have to brazen out the humiliation because it's the only weight loss plan that has ever worked for me.

Three cheers to you for doing it - things can only get better grin

Thanks Hcant x my nearest group is on Wednesday evening so I'm plucking up the courage to go. I had my hair cut today and the chair squeezed my bum when I sat down 😥 I was terrified of the chair breaking so tried to sit completely still whilst not looking in the mirror !! It has worked for me before I just fell into the trap of feeling good with my weight and not going to weigh in. A few "bad" days spiralling out of control x

Can I join in? After piling on a load of weight recently. Have finally dragged myself out of denial and will be joining slimming world this Wednesday. Can't remember the last time I weighed myself so I could be in for a shock.

HCantThinkOfAUsername Mon 22-May-17 21:15:55

You'll feel better for going, I'm so annoyed with myself.
GP wants me to have bariatric surgery so this is my last chance.
I want to lose 6st by Dec (3lb a week) but my willpower is just shocking sad

hownowpowpow Mon 22-May-17 21:22:46

My willpower used to be so good. I was doing loads in the gym and really following my food plan. Have just completely lost my mojo as they say.

I think if you focus on short term or incremental goals it may seem far less daunting. Aim for 7 pounds and when you get that the next 7. Makes it more doable. That's how I'm going to approach it.

Sure we can all support each other here too.

I saw a picture of myself this week that left me horrified. I have rolls on my rolls, and a double chin to rival all double chins. My son also asked me this week if I had a baby in my tummy....(I don't...!!). So today I've decided to make some adjustments. Nothing huge or overwhelming, but change my breakfast, snack on fruit and have something light-ish for tea with loads of salad. I'm also trying to drink water (instead of wine!!!). I'm also going to try and walk a few times a week, and try not to eat any chocolate (hah!). I'm 17st 12lbs. In six weeks I hope to have lost at least 12lbs. Good luck to everyone on your journeys!!

Can I join too? sad Was doing ok on slimming world, lost one and a half stones over a couple of months... Then missed a couple of weeks and haven't been back.. must be about 10 weeks now, haven't dared stand on the scales. Expecting it all to be back on if not more.

Can't go to the group this week but next Saturday I'll be back there, hoping I can fix a small amount of the damage over the next 12 days before going back confused

happy2bhomely Mon 22-May-17 21:41:41

I tried slimming world. I lost almost 2 stone then put it all back on because I couldn't live without fat and with sweetener.

I am 2 weeks into the blood sugar diet and I've lost 10lbs already. I'm not hungry, I'm not craving anything. My head feels clearer and my waist is an inch smaller already. I have a fitbit and I've been doing 10000 steps a day and logging my food.

I feel like I could eat like this forever. It doesn't feel like a diet. It doesn't require willpower. My appetite has just decreased. I am focusing on health and nutrition. I really recommend the book if you find that slimming world isn't for you.

hownowpowpow Mon 22-May-17 21:54:15

Thanks happy. Will definitely consider that if slimming world doesn't suit me.

Seems like people have had great success with slimming world before. I have done some research and it didn't look too bad. Hoping I find it tolerable.

Think there are many folk with the same story that was the start of their journey ! I have had a few attempts at Slimming world among other weight loss attempts ! This time , new approach , got weighed , heaviest ever , had a great start but now things slowed down because so many weekends away , holidays etc ! Not giving up this time , will go and get weighed , try not to loose sight of fact l need to loose weight ! Would be too hard to say no to weekend away , festivals and such like but going to try and have a better balance . Good luck , will all be worth it in the end ! X

I am eating whatever takes my fancy today before starting tomo. Closer magazine have a join for free thing in current magazine. Saw that on fb this morning. Went out and bought magazine. Felt ancient after browsing through it an not knowing who half the people in it are.

MinniesAndMickeysNeedCounting Wed 24-May-17 14:19:50

Im joining my local group tomorrow morning.

I used to do weight watchers but my weight plateaued and I still had loads to lose. So I gave up and put it all back on again.

Im a bit worried about slimming world being low fat, they say fat (good fats) aren't the problem. Gonna give it a go though.

HCantThinkOfAUsername Wed 24-May-17 14:36:10

Ah I wish I'd got the coupon.
Day 3 and it seems to be going ok, not hungry or anything!
I've a lot to lose though so bound to have blips.

HCantThinkOfAUsername Wed 24-May-17 14:39:20

Just realised I missed loads of replies. I must've looked really rude blush I always forget when I'm on the app.
Anyone want to be a weight loss buddy? smile

Looneytune253 Wed 24-May-17 14:40:56

I just can't get remotivated. I've been attending sw for years. Id lost 3 stone but haven't been attending properly since Xmas and can't seem to get into it again sad

Linda131963 Wed 24-May-17 15:22:30

Hi , wondered where you had gone ! I will send you a message , we can be each others cheer leaders ! X

hownowpowpow Wed 24-May-17 21:57:23

Have just about recovered from the weigh in shock. I'm 2 stone over where I'd like to be. Anyone else weighing in today?

I have given up smoking since the start of March so definitely eating more shite than normal.

Few bits bought for food tomo. Will do a big shop tomo evening and will do some batch cooking.

ALemonyPea Wed 24-May-17 21:59:42

Good luck! Don't look at the big number, aim for each award and it Emma easier that way.

I've lost almost 7 stone in just over a year, you can do it!

HCantThinkOfAUsername Wed 24-May-17 22:35:21

@hownowpowpow Monday weigh in day for me, you can do this smile

@ALemonyPea how did you do that? How fantastic ! You must feel amazing smile

hownowpowpow Wed 24-May-17 22:55:27

Wow ALemonyPea that is an unbelievable achievement. Well done. You must be so proud of yourself.
