So it turns out I suck at motivation. But the one things that actually gets me working on something is the fear of letting down other people. The only way I've managed to get on top of my weight before was having weekly meetings/check ins with people, and supporting each other through.

I have a friend who has mentioned having a skype chat/messaging thing once a week for weigh in and chatting about how food that week has been, but feel it would be a bit much with just them being all "FOCUS ON HER AND ASK EVERYTHING"

Sooooo. I wondered if anyone would want to join me?

In the past couple of years I've put on over 5 stone, which is what I need to lose.


(I apologise if this isn't allowed, I read the rules but couldn't see anything where it wouldn't be allowed, please be nice about it it's taken so much to be able to actually post this)

I think that this is a great idea! :clap: How would it work? A weekly chat? Or via the forum?

When I asked some friends to do it with me, I said about skype because they all already have my skype etc. But no one really jumped at the wanting to actually do it.

But in terms of with people from here, I hadn't thought that far ahead! I've just been psyching myself up to ask! Any suggestions?

I'm taking a break from the forum as of tomorrow, but I would be happy to exchange emails if you feel comfortable doing this? No pressure :)
