I started SW at the end of March, I am 1lb away from 1.5 stone loss, Which I am really pleased with, My problem is, I am very obese, I started my SW journey at 24st 11lbs.
I have at least 12 stone to just get within the acceptable weight for my height.
How do you keep yourself motivated when you have a massive target to reach?
I am pleased with my weight loss so far but I have a hell of a long way to go and that's quite disheartening!

I follow someone on YouTube who has lost over 14 stone in slimming world!!!!

She's an inspiration. Taken not too long either if I recall. She uploads everything she eats. She's amazing. It can be done op!

Debbie is very inspirational.

I find breaking it down to smaller targets help x

Hi there!
I was so surprised to click on this thread and find my channel being shared thank you so much xx

I agree with Groovee that I broke it down into smaller interim targets. I keep my certificates in view and use visualisation techniques to help me avoid unnecessary snacking and keep me motivated for that next award. I have a weight loss plaque to record pounds lost so that’s more little targets to aim for as well as getting into Next stone bracket, and it wasn’t just about losing weight it was going down he clothes sizes and setting exercise goals too.

I stick to plan fairly rigidly and do plenty of exercise. I drink lots of water and include lots of speed food. I also use my syns!

I started a YouTube channel and Instagram account which has really helped me but that’s not for everyone! Maybe look for A SW buddy to exchange meal pics and motivation with?

Thanks again Deb x

Hi girlwithnousername. I started sw again today. Last time I started I was at 20 st 5, now to my utter horror I'm 24st 7. I need to lose a whole person. If you want a buddy to whatsapp meal pics and share motivation please pm me

Hi girlwithnousername, I am back on SW. I lost 11 stone last time but then fell off the wagon and gained it all back (and it brought friends). Now I am sticking to it and would like to lose up to 15 stone!!!

It will be a long slog but it is doable.
