Hi! I joined SW today- need to lose a similar amount.

I've never done it before, I'm hoping my MIL will help as she's maintaining hers well.

Buttwing · 30/12/2015 21:35

Yes I feel loads better and it's not been too difficult at all I've had holidays, nights out and other social occasions, sometimes I've stuck to slimming world sometimes I've had a blowout and had a gain. It sounds a bit corny but it's been a lifestyle change for me and I feel so much better in myself. I'm going to start doing some exercise in the new year as I'm a bit wobbly after having the dc.

It's not a scary thread and lots of new people are joining at the mo as we head into the new yearSmile

Howlongtillbedtime · 30/12/2015 22:22

That sounds brilliant, I will have read and say hi soon .

See you both there .

Can I join you. Just joined online as I know I won't get to a group. I did it a couple of years ago and lost 2.5 ish stone (though have a lot more to lose!!) which felt white easy at the time. Have had a baby since then and managed to out most of it back on.

Hairyfairy01 · 02/01/2016 19:44

I joined last Wednesday. I want to lose nearly 2 stone. So far it's going ok.

Howlongtillbedtime · 02/01/2016 20:15

I'm starting on Tuesday night very nervous about it but looking forward too if got at least 6stone to lose, turning 30 21 this year so want too look lovely at my party and have lost at least 4 stone by then!

littlebearsmummy · 02/01/2016 20:55

My best tip (from many years ago, so I'm hardly an expert) is to keep going to group and if you have a bad meal, it's just that one meal. Doesn't mean you carry on all day/week. I sound like I know what I'm on about, when I really don't! I've just joined online. Let's do this :)

Thegirlinthetrousers · 02/01/2016 21:03

I joined September 2014, I'm 4.5 stone down, ummm...large Christmas gain, but once that's off about 7lb to target. I have dieted all my life and this is the first time I've ever done it, kept it off and am looking forward to being back on it on Monday once I've eaten the rest of the gorgeous cheese in the fridge

Secret is, climb straight back on if you have a bad day, devote 30mins each week to meal planning and accept you will need to spend a bit more time in the kitchen (which gets easier the longer you do it)

I'm a completely different person xx

Howlongtillbedtime · 02/01/2016 21:11

Thank you . I enjoy cooking so I am hoping that won't be too much of a faff .

My biggest fear is going headlong into it for a couple of weeks and then failing . the advice about getting back on after a crap meal our day is good .

Feel free to remind me I said that in a couple of weeks Grin

And wow ! Over four stone off is amazing girl in the trousers

I went this morning (8am!!!) but couldn't find the venue - I did call the consultant in the week, but she didn't call me back, and I couldn't raise her this morning either: I know I need a convenient place to get to, because otherwise, if it's too much of a faff I won't go - but I could do without the only place I can get to on public transport being half an hour a way on a Saturday morning... But I know it'll be worth it in the end. I hope Grin!
