Hi Edd, welcome. I think SW is one of the easiest eating plans to follow, there isn't much weighing or measuring, a big long list of free foods and enough syns to still enjoy treats! I've lost 1 stone 10 pounds in 5 weeks.
B - banana
L - bacon and mushroom pasta bake (HEA for Mozzarella)
D - Chicken and vegetable stir fry with rice
S - 3 leftover onion bhajis (free), mango chutney (2 syns), 2 hifi bars (HEB)

B: Banana overnight oats. Yum
L: Beef fajita pasta leftovers
T: Linda mcartney rosemary sausages, oven chips, peas and sprouts
S: apple, melon, a bit of an alpen bar but toddler nicked most of it. Plain popcorn, sw Haribo.
Going to up the speed a bit more tomorrow.

Well done @FrozenMargarita17
Welcome @EdSimcox I find slimming world the easiest to follow out of everything I’ve tried,that’s not to say I always stick to it but I have decided March is the month I do it! I went to class last year and lost every week currently following it from home and find it fits really well around life lots of everyday food and meals I can cook for the whole family l. Good luck on your journey ps I have just under 2 and half stone to lose.

Welcome @EddSimcox. I joined SW last year in January and am now 2lb from target and my 4.5st award. It fits in with family life so easily and is easy to follow with so many recipes available. This thread is good for info and support if online.
@boats16 I honestly cannot recommendation any of the meals 😢. I like the burgers, meatballs and the vegetarian burgers and that's it.
@FrozenMargarita17 well done x

Hi. Can I join? Back on SW after a long hiatus. Got about 4 stone to lose. A lot of my weight gain has come since I went on ADs. Has anyone else had experience of weight gain on meds and successfully lost weight on SW?
Also, any recommendations on syn free or low syn yoghurts that don't contain artificial sweeteners as it makes me gag

I take amitriptyline and gained around 4st in a short space of time. Have lost my excess now and just trying to get to target. It came off quickly at first but it's slowed since the summer. But I'm still 5st 2lb lighter than 20 months ago. I find snacking on protein based foods help.

Welcome Eddsimcox I am currently following SW from home. I dont get to a club either but find that by reading the mags, looking online and getting inspiration from other people on the forum its working for me. Its easy to follow. I havent lost weight quickly but I have lost 11lb in total.I haven't been doing it long.
Weigh day tomorrow

0.5lb gain for me this week, but I have been quite off plan this week so I’m just happy it wasn’t more!
Have an afternoon tea tomorrow which I am planning to eat and enjoy but other than that I am determined to be on plan this week. I am so close to target now and I am finding weight loss has slowed down but that is no excuse to let it stop!

D - 2 meatfree burgers (syn free) topped with cheese slices (HEA), relish (2 syns) and gherkins and served with chips and salad

Hi all - kept meaning to come and say hello! I've been on SW since September (2 stone 3lb down)
Just wondering - I've developed a slight addiction to fat free fromage frais after falling out with Muller lights when I looked at the sugar content! I know it's free - just wondered if there are any hidden drawbacks with it?
