For the first time.

I have tried and tried to lose some weight but cannot do it on my own.
I only need to lose a stone if not a little bit more but it's so hard. So wish me luck grin

Good luck. I joined at the end of May and I'm 1lb away from my 1 stone award.

You're doing better than me. I'm 5ft 0 & was 12st 7 when I started. I've not decided what my target is yet.

It's ace. I love Slimming World.

Definitely not a quick solution, but I've lost 23lb in 5.5 months (that includes a couple of weekends away where I wasn't as good as I could have been --drank vats of cocktails and ate my body weight in cake--)

I've gone from an 18 to a 14 and my target is whenever I fit into a 10 (somewhere between 10 and 10 1/2 stone)

Extra Easy is great. it really is so simple and the threads on here are so motivational and supportive.

I joined SW this week too, first target is to get from 12st 11 down to 11st 7 so hopefully I can manage that and then ultimately get into the healthy BMI bracket. I would need to get to around 9 1/2 stone to be in the right bracket.

Just under a stone to lose. Perhaps we could encourage each other.

Slimming World is brilliant, I find it really easy to stick to and have lost 3.5 stone since April. Good luck! smile

I joined SW 4 weeks ago and I have lost half a stone already. I make sure I never eat anything that isn't SW.

I have gone onto their website and I have printed out all their recipes that we like, put them into a binder and I pick our meals for the week out of their and do the shopping to the meals.

I am eating LOADS more than I was before and am still losing weight. I didn't believe them when they told me this would happen, but it really does smile

I have another stone and a half to go to get to my target weight.

And I keep my weights on the website too so I have a visual record of my weight, and BMI, coming down week by week.

You will be fine OP - just check in here every so often for support and encouragement.

p.s. fat free strawberry yoghurt, strawberries and blueberries are delicious as an evening snack !
