    New and Improved Bee's Diary on SW

    Well, hello fellow SW friends,

    I'm here to introduce myself, I'm new to the SW game, but not to this forum. For the last year, I have been successfully losing and gaining the same stone on Exante and just realised I cannot do it. After doing WW in the past, I didn't feel like doing a re-start of sorts. So I decided a whole new fresh thing with Slimming World.

    I signed up last night, attended my first meeting, and it's the first day today of the new and improved me. I do have a lot to lose and ideally I would like to get to 8st. At some point in the future. Right now, being 15st3lb, this goal seems a rather small dot in the distance. So I have set my first goal at 10% weight loss. So that's 21lb. I want to lose that in two months. Doable, you reckon?

    Would love to read your comments on here, I am a bit sporadic sometimes with my appearance here, lots going on in life with family illness and so forth. But I will start working my way through some of your diaries and will gain motivation no doubt. Hopefully I can provide a little bit of that for you too xx

    Good Morning all, I'm on my third day of SW now, getting on well so far. I'm struggling to get my head around quantities though. My group leader said when she explained the programme that my appetite is the only restraint on this, but in my case that's not necessarily a safe guide, I can quite easily overeat even on all the healthy free stuff.
    Any advice on this, do any of you measure or portion control in a certain way?

    Just placed a very satisfying order on Tesco's, so much I cannot believe I am allowed to eat. I still feel rather suspicious. But waiting for weigh in on Monday night for the moment of truth.
    I've already had 1.5 litres of water today, so far so good. I get my exercises from running to the loo. It should be on the Body Magic plan really.

    Hitting the desk in agony, missing my lovely coffee. I like my coffee filtered, strong and milk mixed with a spoonful of cream. *sigh* Plain milk just doesn't do it for me. But a teaspoon of double cream has something ridiculous like 3.5 syns. So I might have single cream as a treat every once in a while but for now I'm trying hard to get used to milk only coffee*shudder*.
    I know it seems hardly a big problem. And in all truthfulness, it isn't. It's just like having your BMW taken away and a Ford Fiesta given instead. ( I am not knocking Fiestas. I drive one myself ). It's not the same. But it still gets you there.

    Right, today is my last day of the first week and weigh in tonight! Wish me luck. I don't know how I feel about myself, whether I think I may have had a good loss. I have eaten so much fruit, I am a tad suspicious. Plus I came on my totm this morning and feel like a barrel. On top of which I am swaying mood wise between majorly murderous and weepy willow. And to add insult to a whole catalogue of injuries, I have not had any coffee yet. It might be a psychological crutch but a crutch nonetheless. I need it to lean on. I am falling. *hitting the table in tearful anger*

    I can sympathise with the coffee. I gave up normal tea totally so I could skip milk. Now I only drink green and mint and the occasional fruit tea. Funny thing being that I wouldn't go back now. You will find over time that lots of little changes add up to one massive shift in eating patterns. I certainly look back after a year and think, wow did I really eat that? And that?!

    Good luck with your WI tonight. Let us all know how you get on!

    Thanks Sam. Yes, I think I'd rather give up coffee altogether or have it as an occasional treat than have it black or with skimmed milk or something equally horrifying. At the moment, I'm managing alright with the whole milk in it, I use my HexA for it and that works quite well. But seeing as I do like herbal teas and drink them a lot, maybe I can replace part of my coffee habit.
    It's funny, it's more of a brain programming with me and black coffee because I actually used to like it a lot. But then I started having it black whenever I was on a diet of varying degrees of gruel. And it puts me right back there in that state of entrapment and deprivation. *shiver in disgust*

    Hiya, hope you get a good result tonight. I see what you mean about the coffee, anything that puts you in a mindset of deprivation is not good. In capital letters but it's rude to shout on forums isn't it. So enjoy your herbal teas and have a creamy one as a treat now and then, why not?

    Do come and report back after WI, won't you.

    Yes I agree. Don't ever put yourself in a position where you feel deprived. Down that road disaster lies.... I know. I've seen it. Arghhhh!!!

    Thanks Micci, will report about the WI results. Getting mega crampy with totm now and feeling altogether very dogs-dinner-esque. And not terribly looking forward to the meeting because I have to admit, I find them a tad boring. Especially after a long day in work. But I'm sure it will be good for me especially at the start to make use of the support.

    Sam, very true about the road to disaster! I used to do so many fad diets and look where I am now! So I guess the new mantra should be: only start what you know you can sustain.

    I'm with you there on the meetings. A funny thing, have you noticed how SW don't seem to use the definitive article? We stay to 'Group' never THE Group. Still, some consultants run a lot better session than others, I don't know about the one I'm at right now as the real C wasn't there when I joined. The people seemed friendlier than some groups I've known though.

    What I particularly HATE is the clapping. 'Here is the lovely / wonderful X who has joined tonight / stayed the same / lost 9 pounds this week 'clap clap clap' from people who couldn't give two hots and continue with their private conversations.

    Yes, I am a little cynical about SW but it works for me and countless others but tbh, once I've got into the swing of it and the new books I prefer to do it from home.

    You got anything to take for the cramps? Or stretching yoga postures, massage? Feel better soon.

    I am a fellow cynic I'm afraid. But in my case right now I think it's my cynicism that makes it necessary for me to go to the meetings. I know it sounds like an oxymoron but the thing is that my natural scepticism has often held me back from doing things that might well have benefited me. In the dark and distant past, I attended WW meetings and they were great, lovely group leader and a good atmosphere and I had good losses.

    But it's not naturally me and so it took quite a bit of getting over myself to join a SW group. The clapping really took me by surprise, it wasn't something I knew from my old WW group and it was just odd. But right now I'm in that place in my head where I know I will fall off the wagon quicker than you can say buttered toast if I don't have that accountability to others.

    Well, hello! It's the eve of the weigh in. I'm pleased to report it's a 2.5lb loss. I secretly hoped for more. But seeing as I have been battling major PMT cravings all week and came on my totm this morning, this is pretty good. Maybe next week will be better even, what with less water retention?
    And I won a raffle too for some great kitchen utensils which I was so mega chuffed about because I really wanted them

    As I was driving home and thinking how I was a teeny bit disappointed with my loss, I thought how devastated I would be about a 2.5lb gain! So why am I not super excited about a 2.5lb loss? Precisely. I should be hehe.

    Well done, new utensils and a 2.5lb loss in what SW so coyly call a star week. Next week will be good too. Mark my words.

    My ultimate goal is to have a healthy relationship with food and to be strong and slender for the rest of my life, through compassionate eating and being in tune with my needs.
