How much have you lost? Prove it works.

I just don't believe this really works. I feel like whenever I ask about it everyone insists it works but no one's actually lost anything!

I know there's success stories on the website but not that many. Seems quite hard to find people who've actually lost weight.

So...
How much have you lost?
How long did it take?
Start and current weights?

If you convince me I'll try it!!

I started 18 months ago and lost 3 and a half stone. I need to lose another stone I'd say!
But I think it works! It's not hard to stick to. I feel like the people who say it doesn't work are people who lost the weight and immediately start pigging out!

I lost 6 stone. 5 stone in a year. Further stone about 6 months? I was quite happy when I'd lost 5 stone.

Started at 120kg. In a year lost 30-35kg which is about 5.5 stone.
Kept it off for a year.

It's now trying to sneak back on, possibly due to hrt or other health issues.

I didn't believe it would work, only went because that was step 1 to a gastric sleeve.

I could do with losing another stone, but seem a bit stuck, possibly because of winter and stress.

Lost it, gained it back. Did calorie counting instead. Sorry! I went from 11st 10 to 9st 9 then got pregnant again, baby weight both times. Went vegan the second time and I don't think SW is great with veganism no matter what the group leaders say.
SW can work well if you're one of those people who follows well with the spirit of the rules not the letter of them and you don't try to look for loopholes. If you make stupid cakes out of weetabix and mashed chickpeas you won't lose weight. If you eat 1/3 plate of veg and sensible portion sizes it'll work well for you.

I've lost nearly 10 stone over 2 years. I just eat sensibly and don't eat endless pasta etc.

Lost it and gained it back plus some. Same with WW. Learned a lot of dysfunctional habits along the way and only now undoing all the harm.

The first time I joined I lost 1.5 stone and was the healthiest and happiest of ever been. I kept the weight off and became a lifetime member for a year or so. I fell pregnant and didn't really gain any weight until around half way.

I recently rejoined and I've lost 10 pounds in a month. Finishing it a bit more difficult this time but I have so much in my plate atm.

I've friend every diet and this works for me but just eh mindful that what works for own won't necessarily work for another.

I weighed 12st in November 2021, by March 2022 I was 9st 10.
I've kept the weight off by following SW for half the week and then eat what I want the other half but I don't go to a group.

A friend of mine has maintained her weight for well over a decade but still goes to the SW group to keep herself in check.

I don't eat the infamous SW stuff like Mullerlights and pasta Mugshots, most of my meals are cooked from scratch.

Started in November and have lost over 2 stone now. It's been really easy and I eat loads and feel really well. A family member lost 5 stones and has kept it off over a year now which encouraged me.

Starting weight 14 10. Final weight 10 stone. Took me 11 months. Kept it off for over 5 years until lockdown then wine and crisps hit πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«
Now 13 stone and restarting. I know when I follow the rules I lose. Fruit, veg, protein, fresh foods. Don't fall for unlimited pasta and muller lites ... that's not really the point of the diet. I always feel healthier when I follow it and it works.

Since October I’ve lost 20lb. Got another 7lb to go until I reach my target of 9st 7lb. I put off joining for ages as I thought I would find it too restrictive however it’s actually really easy as long as I meal plan & prep and write everything I eat down.
