I'm not new to weigh loss but new to this website. I started my journey last June, just before I had a big birthday; it was for a number of reasons (in no particular order):
I've now lost 2 and a half stone with the help from my fab GP practice nurses, I visit once a month to be "monitored" and weighed. The good thing is that they don't judge but fortunately I have never gained but now my losses are tailing off - that's why I've joined this site for a bit more motivation and moral support :-).
My best motivational tip is to appreciate the changes you make to your lives; I went for a health check to find that my cholesterol and blood pressure are now much lower than they were a year ago. I do go to the gym and hate it, but the nurses explained how much difference the exercise has made to my lifestyle - I'll never be a "gym bunny" but love the results.
I would love to lose another stone before my next birthday but am not going to beat myself up about it if I don't.
I'm looking forward to becoming inspired, motivated and gaining some slimming buddies.
Good luck all x
