My best mate is getting married in July - I would so love to get rid of a couple of stone by then.

best of luck to all of you. Can I ask a favour of one of you if you go to classes. Could someone ask if pregnant women can/should have more healthy extras. Going to follow it from tomorrow after a fashion, I won't be too strict and I know you can do SW whilst pg but just not sure if you can eat extra. Cheers m'dears

I took the plunge this evening and signed up. Never been to a slimming class before so was very nervous. I lost quite a bit with MN Mamas last year so don't have too much to lose and will probably be happy with my 10% thing. Not got a clue what I am going to eat tomorrow but ready to give this a go!

I saw a girl yesterday that I haven't seen for a few months. She started on another weight loss plan <<<<<<whispers very quietly WW>>>>> at around the same time that I started on SW. She was very, very much larger than myself. I couldn't believe how fantastic she looked. She told me she has lost 5 1/2 stone!!! Bit of a kick in the teeth when I knew I was only around about the 1 1/2 stone mark.

SPARKLER1 Mon 03-Jan-05 21:47:41

Demented - welcome and good luck.

SPARKLER1 Mon 03-Jan-05 21:48:02

BTW - you didn't come to my class did you??????

Demented Mon 03-Jan-05 21:48:53

Sparkler, from what I have seen SW looks far more achievable for a longterm plan. I lost quite a bit of my weight last year with a copy of some WW points and did find it quite restrictive, counting fruit for example, (although I understand they have a different plan out).

Demented Mon 03-Jan-05 21:49:33

Which part of the country are you in Sparkler? I am in Dunfermline, Scotland.

SPARKLER1 Mon 03-Jan-05 21:51:28

I know I have been grumbling that I haven't got much willpower - but have to say that SW is really a fantastic weight loss plan. As long as I have a well stocked up fridge, freezer, fruit basket and cupboards I can do just fine. With xmas we have just had so much bad stuff in foodwise and it really hasn't helped. Shall get a good shop in on Wednesday and I should do better.

SPARKLER1 Mon 03-Jan-05 21:52:31

ROFL - you definitely didn't come to my class then. I'm in Poole in Dorset. Have you added your name to my "Where is everyone" thread???

BethAndHerBrood Mon 03-Jan-05 22:08:24

I'm going to join my local S.W. class this week. My very first one! Bit nervous as i don't really know anybody here and will be on my own.I have this idea in my head that everybody else will go with their mum, best friend, workmate, etc. It makes me cringe!!!

Twiglett Mon 03-Jan-05 22:09:58

I went on my own and still do which suits me fine .. I run in get weighed and run out

SPARKLER1 Mon 03-Jan-05 22:10:21

Beth I went along to SW on my own. Everyone at my group is so friendly. Have become really good friends with some of them now. We all went out as a group for a xmas meal in December. We had a wonderful evening and expect that an evening out will happen again soon. You'll be just fine. If your consultant is friendly and welcoming everyone else will to too!

SPARKLER1 Mon 03-Jan-05 22:11:22

Twiglett - why don't you stay to class. I find it really helpful and I also find it good to socialise with everyone.

BethAndHerBrood Mon 03-Jan-05 22:16:48

SPARKLER1, i have generally found people aren't very friendly round here!! I've lived here nearly 2 years and don't speak to anybody that i didn't know before! Even at school! But it's not going to stop me going!!

Oooooh it's gone past lunch time and I haven't eat one naughty thing. Have been filling out my food diary too. Think I may have got there girls. Did a huge food shop this morning - was going to wait until Friday but decided not to. Going to make meatballs tonight out of SW recipie book.
