    Hello everyone I started slimming world a little over 8 weeks ago and I've lost just over 2&1/2 stone. I'm loving every second I really look forward to getting to know and offering my support to you all. Our journeys will be tough but so worth it in the end

    I started slimming world with my good friend, we decided to support each other but over the weeks she has become scarily competitive and I fear she is a negative influence on my confidence. I'm determined that little blips won't hold me back but I would still like a little support

    I'm a blogger on quite a few sites so I'm naturally talky, I will be posting recipies and tips along the way

    That's fab! 2 and a half stone in 8 weeks.
    Keep going as you say will be worth it.

    I am only 10 days in on slimming world not sure i can match your results but will try my best!

    Violetstar is doing fab, would be made up if I could match the success.

    Good luck with your target for Christmas it is definitely doable!
    I want to lose as much as possible before Christmas but need to remember any losses are better than my starting point!

    Good luck!

    Slimming world newbie

    Hi everyone,
    I joined SW weds weighing 16st 3 and half pounds but at least I've done something positive to change it. I did SW a long time ago and did really well on red plan but find this is so much easier now with extra easy. My 1st goal is to get to 14st by Xmas....wish me luck. I am a very fussy eater so any recipes would be handy, especially veggie soup as its the only way I eat veg :/

    Good luck to all on your journeys x

    Good luck!
    We are similar weights and I too would like to get to 14 or less by Xmas. Got to that weight a few years ago and got stuck so would be good to start the new year at that point and then get the rest off.

    I have the EE cookbook and its great but there are loads of meal ideas on here!

    Hope you have a great 1st week.

    Hi All,

    I think you are all doing awesome - it's a huge life changing experience, from sitting and making a weekly meals plan, to writing a shopping list, to doing the shopping and having the willpower to stick to it and ignore the cakes, to preparing meals using fresh foods, to finding something to keep you occupied at night in order to control the munchies. The easiest and best part is looking in the mirror and seeing the effects of your efforts, and feeling motivated to take the dog out twice a day - an activity that seemed a chore in the past. I'm looking forward to reading your posts - have a good weekend everyone x

    Well I think you are going absolutely fantastic... It has taken me 17 months of serious diet and exercise to loose only 37lbs and I would kill (figuratively) for progress like yours... don't worry about your competitive friend have a hug from me instead

    Encouraging others is very good for lifting depression.... you can start with me lol

    Keep your chin up you are going amazing!
    3 stone in such a short time is fab!
    Have you got anything coming up you could set a mini target for to keep you motivated.
    Try and remember how far you have already come.
    Well done!

    Big hugs to you all I guess it doesn't matter how quickly we are able to lose weight, what matters is the journey and the support we can gain and give to each other. We are all changing our lives and it's a huge commitment

    As for mini targets I'm not sure I'm going to London next week for a few days as part of my job but work and London next week means I'm out of group for almost 3 weeks, no pressure eek!! I'm hoping to stay on plan as best I can but my competitive friend doesn't intend to! She thinks she can tempt me by calling me boring for not wanting to drink but I'm going to stick to my guns

    You must all update me on your progress
