    Im on weight watchers but am thinking of trying slimming world - advice please :o)

    Hi everyone

    This is my first post on here, hope you are all well )

    Ive been doing weight watchers for 3 years and have lost 4 and half stone.. im having trouble getting the last stone off and have hit a platue - i definantly dont want to reagin any of the weight. I have how ever gained 7lbs since november - so need a kick start.

    Has anyone done weight watchers then changed to slimming world? if so have you had success and is SW easy to follow?

    Thanks x

    Diet: Looking to go on Slimming World
    when I did WW i hated it, I thought there was a lot more flexibility in what you could eat with slimming world.
    I am thinking about starting slimming world again but now sure x

    I did WW once, a long time ago.
    I could never eat all of my points and disliked having to measure most things.
    SW is honestly the best thing that I did. Big emphasis on cooking from scratch and relatively little measuring.
    You can always take some of your WW knowledge over - eg portion size, but to be honest, I'm not sure how much difference that will really make (I eat big portions!).
    I love SW - it has made a huge difference, not only to me, but also to the way that my whole family eat.
    Good luck with your decision. x

    Hi, I also did ww a while ago and lost 4 stones. There's no doubt that it works, but I found it v hard towards the end as it seemed the more weight I lost, the less I was allowed to eat so I felt a bit hard done by! I was always hungry. It's very different on sw. If u r hungry then yr doing something wrong! There r no banned foods, and loads of food u can eat freely. It's not a quick fix tho, and u can probably expect a loss of around 1 - 2 lbs a week, but in fairness most of the time u won't feel like yr on a diet. It takes a wk or 2 to get the,hang of it, mite be a bit overwhelming at first, but yr c should b helpful, and u can get loads of help on here too.
    You've done so well so far, sounds as if u just got a bit stuck in a rut and need a change.
    Let us know what u decide to do. Good luck x.

    I did he same...lol. Never was interested in red and green days but now the EE is here its great and better than SW. Like everyone says you can eat and eat on SW but your eating the free foods. Still can't believe a english brekkie is FREE! He heee.my type of healthy eating.

    I too did both, but being really picky with my food didn't work well with SW ad a lot of the free-foods I wouldn't eat!
    HBB. Back and ready for business!

    Currently living in New York City, in United States of America, loving it - it's just hard to diet in one of the most expensive cities in the world! But I'm gonna get back down to my lowest again!

    Well i did weight watchers and it made me start to obsess about everything I too spent a number of years on ww but what i started to do was obsess over food and it was verging on an eating disorder my weight was creeping up so I decided to try slimming world extra easy and i love it minimal weighing and counting and family friendly I can do this long term I'm happy on sw and i feel better than I have in a long time if I'm hungry I can eat and not worry about any points I love it give it a go for a month if its not for you you can always go back to ww



    ​ BLOODY LOVE SW

    Sw is easier if you like to cook and lots of staple main food stuff are free. Ww is easier for real life as u eat anything within ur points...i prefer ww even though lost weight on both...more thinking needed with sw ...for me ww...when my fractured heel recovers i hope to get back to it.
