I'm new...and I feel full for the first time this week!

I'm 13st11 5'3 so a good four stone overweight. I want to get down to a healthy weight.
I started slimming world on Monday and I felt grumpy, hungry and just had food on the brain constantly. It was a real battle fighting cravings.
I've realised what my triggers are when it comes to eating eg when dp is out or the house is empty I want to binge eat. If I feel sad or annoyed I want to eat, and even more so when I have something to celebrate, even if it's just a date night out. I overeat big time and have learnt I would rather not have any chocolate at all unless it's a huge bar. A little bit is pointless to me.

Yesterday I had the mayflower curry and made my own salt and chilli chips so it felt like a takeaway. Omg it was amazing. It tasted just like the takeaway.
Today I feel really full and keep thinking I've over done it but I count my Syns and still have some spare....i had

X2 weetabix heb with soy choc milk heA

Baked potato with beans and grilled bacon

...oops.....with blackberries

Then for tea I had chilli con carne rice and salad and for pudding I had a quark yogurt thing which was free and I also had a fruit pastel ice lolly for 2.5syns and snacks were x2 packets of crisps which came to 8 syns so I've only had 10.5 syns Shock

So ready for next week now hopefully I get a good loss on weigh day.

Good luck for weigh in. It's a way of life for me now. Wish I had done it earlier. Into week 8 at target now x

Wow grovee that's amazing you have obviously cracked it. How much have you lost and how long did it take?
I find the kopperberg lights a life saver at the weekend at only 4 syns and the fruit pastel Lollys are so refreshing for the summer. Things like that will hopefully keep me on track.

Well done for getting started! Make sure you’re having plenty of speed foods and protein, fill yourself up!

I was exactly the same weight as you (I’m an inch taller). I got to target just inside my ‘healthy’ weight range in 8 months. It can be done Smile

If you struggle with binge eating, I highly recommend Brain over binge by Kathryn Hansen. It’s helped me massively.

I started again last week and have been fine but not massively hungry so often not having dinner. Got on my scales and I don't think I've lost anything ( weigh in tomorrow). Any advice would be good. Feeling fed up

@Zazu44 I never weigh outside of class as it would mess with my head.

Ive had an awful day you know the one where you just want to eat everything and I had some rubbish. Now I don't want to go to weigh in tomorrow.
