    Red face Getting skinnier and healthier with SW

    Hi Ladies and gents
    My name is Emma and have just started slimming world, half a week in, and enjoying it so far. Im off work ill, and finding that i just want to talk about the diet and food all the time (in a positive diet friendly way), thought maybe this would help so my husband doesnt get too bored of me talking rubbish!

    Havent had my first way in yet but feeling already less bloated. I am nervous about weigh in, cant believe i can eat all this lovely food and still lose weight, but heard and read nothing but positive comments, so im super happy.
    Anybody got any great tips?

    Hi Emma, I'm Emma!

    Good luck with the plan - I'm sure that you'll fall in love with it like the rest of us!

    My top tip is to really read the books and to make the most of free foods.

    Good Luck & It really is that easy lol

    I totally know what you mean about wanting to talk about it as Im same and my husband will look at me enough to say WHAT?! lol He has started getting his head around different syn values though which is quite good lol. I agree with Capri_girl, fill up on free foods and do use the lifetime online tool. Its great for finding syn values and recipe ideas. LAst but not least ask on here as there is always someone on here that knows the answer to your question lol. One useful thing I found that is delicious today is Muller light Luscious Lemon Greek Style yoghurt, 4 for 1 at farmfoods and only half a syn for a pot Great as a snack or with fruit after a meal Anyhoo good luck with your weight loss journey and yes its understandable you will be nervous at first meeting but there will welcome you with open arms. It truly is a great place to go to and the best bit is you don't feel like you are on a diet Win win situation All my best wishes Wendy

    Hi Emma, think I'm falling in love with it already. Feel like I can eat anything I want with a bit of effort!
    Tonight for dinner we had fajitas with lettuce wraps instead of normal wraps, with a side of sweet corn and SW chips!
    They are sooo easy to make. Really happy so far. Lets hope I am on Thursday when I find out what I've lost! :-) x

    Xmisskx, it's great, didn't really feel like I was missing the wraps, and I love fajitas, we eat them all the time, so I'm glad I've figured out a healthy way to have them.
    Wendy, I am positive that this time you'll stick to it! You've already got loads of knowledge which will help, and like you say no more babies, so you can get your yummy mummy body and keep it! When's ur first weigh in? X

    Good luck Emma

    When I made fajitas I used to make egg wraps.
    I used one egg per wrap, beat it with a tablespoon of water and dry fry it in a pan on one side then flip over and fill as normal, and these are free too .

    i think i might give it a bash...what mix/spices do you use to make your fajitas? before sw,i used some of the old el paso smokey bbq one to season but not sure how i would get that flavour without using it...anyone know?
    are all jars of spices etc free? i noticed a bbq type one the other day but havent checked x

    I had a left over fajita kit in the cupboard so I just used the spice packet from that. I think ud be able to get the spice packet for the BBQ one without the rest if the kit?
    As far as I know all spices are free, as long as no oil, so no squeezey garlic which I love!! I used it all the time. Xx
