Hi all, i am new to this and wanted to pop on and say hello.
I joined slimming world last night for the first time and I am a bit sceptical about things!! Anyone got any tips :)
I need to loose approc 8stone in order to go through IVF. I have a VERY long way to go but i have an incredible goal to work towards and as my profile name says - this-is-my-time :p
Hi Debz, What a great goal to work towards...I do hope that things go well for you.
Well done on getting to grips with your weight problem and Slimming World is a very popular choice on here altho' I'm not following that one myself.
All the very best to you.
I swap from extra easy days to original days. I have been with sw for about 13 weeks and lost 1 stone 13 lb hoping to get my 2 stone award next week. I have gone from 14.4 to 12.5
If I can help in anyway just ask. Ill come back and see how your getting on.
If you can do a food diary on here and we can see what your eating and if you need help or advice.
I also have a page if you want to pop along anytime!
And welcome.! X
Thanks girls ..... I had a great first week and lost 6lbs then this week I have just been munching. My t.o.m is due next week and I normally get the cravings a week before it. I have gained 2.5lbs this week :cry: I am determined to get it off next week plus more!!
My problem this week is that we are totally skint and i have hardly any momey to get food. Not sure what to eat when on a lower budget. there is only so much pasta i can eat!! xx
What a shame Debz.. and after such a good start too!
Nothing worse than having nothing to buy the proper stuff with and the added t.o.m. as well..:patback:
Hope things improve soon.. bless you.. (((Hugs)))

It is ashame with me having had a great start but I will get there. I am determined to do it. I have a work Xmas night out too on 20th December and want to try and loose at least 2 stone by then to show them all that I am serious. There are a few ppl in work that think I am just blabbing on and that I won't do it. I get stick about my weight and they are all going out rubbing together and saying about how much they just need to tone up. It's not fair but I am gonna show them that I am serious about this!!
I had a wee wobble last night just with the way I was feeling but today is a new day! Got my weetabix for breakfast, homemade lentil soup and yoghurt for lunch. Not sure what is for dinner yet xx
Sounds like you have really done very well all things considered... nothing worse than people who keep at you all the time especially as you know that they are just waiting for the opportunity to pounce.
You're doing great.
I don't feel like I am doing great tho but I will get out that frame of mind and I will loose this weight!!!! Think I will go make salad for my lunch tomorrow and will put some pasta thru it too :-) having pasta for dinner so will have done left over hope u hv nice night whatever ur up too x

Don't underestimate yourself... it's early days and you ARE doing very well.

Onwards and Downwards! ... YAY! :girlpower:
I met my slimming world leader this morning on the train, it actually was great to see her and have a wee one to one chat with her. She has given me the motivation to get back on track - remember why I am doing this and know in myself that I can do this. I think gaining that 2.5lbs this week has really got to me :-( I know that it was because I have my time of the month but it has played havoc with my mind and I have not been fully on track this week :-( I need to get back into writing my food down, last week when i tracked i felt much better. I know that this sounds daft but gaining that 2.5lbs, i can really feel it and see my double chin has come back!! Does anyone else find this? xx
That's great, having that one to one with your SW leader was just at the right time for you and you sound well and truly motivated again.
I have had a bad week and def feel quite bloated with all the extras I have been having... back to the drawing board from yesterday so all's well.
It was great having that wee chat with her. She even sent me a message earlier on facebook to see if i was alright. She is lovely and it has def motivated me again :-)
Whats ur plans for the weekend ? I am taking my cat to the vet tomorrow morning to see if she is pregnant!! xx
Are you hoping there will be some kittens?
W/e for me at the moment is not going to be much fun as I am suffering from my arthritic pains which have been quite bad this week... having to take it slowly. Just hope I haven't put too much weight back on!
