Welcome to Newbies 2013 - Say Hello here!!!
Welcome to all Newbies 2012
This thread is designed to give you a place to say Hello and to help you navigate the wonderful SW forum of Minimins
Introduce yourselves below, say hello, tell us about your plans
There is a massive amount of information on the forum, all designed to help you with your weight loss journey - it's just a case of finding the information on here.
Take a bit of time to look around, read through the stickys and the sub-forums. These have been created at the request of minis users, and at first may appear confusing, but they do help locate information without duplicate postings - and they also keep the main SW forum board clear.
The search facility is very useful - remember, someone has probably asked the question before
The first section on the forum is for all the sub-forums and I've listed some of them below:
Please post all syn value requests here Syn Values - MiniMins.com - Weight Loss Support Forum
Some of the most frequently asked syn values are stuck - e.g. syn free yoghurts, joes sausages, ready meals. If your post isn't answered as soon as you'd like, please don't duplicate post in the main forum.
Please post all healthy extra queries here
Slimming World - Healthy Extras - MiniMins.com - Weight Loss Support Forum
Slimming World Recipes - MiniMins.com - Weight Loss Support Forum
This is where people post their favourite recipes but also a place to ask "what can I do with......" or "how can I cook......"
Food and Weight loss diaries
There are 2 sub-forums for diaries, if you want to post your foods use the food diary thread, if you want to post your weight loss journey then post in the weight loss diary thread.
Slimming World - Eating Out - MiniMins.com - Weight Loss Support Forum
This is for Chinese, Indian, Italian, Pub Grub, Wetherspoons etc
And the wonderfully busy Off Topic sub-forum for anything non SW related. We are a chatty lot on here!
Slimming World Off Topic - MiniMins.com - Weight Loss Support Forum
The second section is for Stickys
These are threads which have been part of the main forum at some point, and which people have found very useful so have asked for them to be "stuck".
Finally there's the main SW forum for anything not covered above!!
Welcome one and all - hope SW and 2012 is your plan and your year -go ahead, say hello!!
I've just joined up again online, so hello! I plan to lose 3 stone and get back to a healthy weight.
Is this going to be put into the Sub Forums? it'll get lost in here!
Not sure VC - I didn't know if Newbies would find it in there?
Might have to see how it goes but I reckon it'll need moving. Starlight or Mini will advise I'm sure :-)

Hia, im toots, joined slimming world the week before xmas and lost 4lb. Im hoping that hasnt all gone back on at the next weigh in. Ive started back on plan this morning, and im so excited about the new me 2012 is going to bring. Im 16.5 (was 16.9) and my first goal is to get to 14 and then ill see from there.
Good luck everyone x
If it was clearly visible i'm sure they would see it
Yeah it would definitely get lost in here, once it goes to page 2 it would be gone forever lol
Brilliant idea tho so hopefully they use it!

I've just joined up at a local meet after yoyo-ing for many years... Granted I am not one of the heaviest people around but at 13st 2lbs but I am not happy and want to feel how I did again when I was 11st 7lbs.
Luckily I have a Target Member girlfriend who is going to keep me on the straight and narrow as I love my food and ale a little too much...
My target is to reach and keep my weight off by Easter but if it takes longer then so be it as long as it doesn't go back on again...
Good luck to all the other Newbies along with me, 2012 will be our year...
I'm sure you'll be there in no time, especially with your girlfriend keeping an eye on you!
Welcome to the greatest eating plan there is!
It's hard being overweight, it's hard to lose weight, and it's hard to maintain your weight.
Choose your 'hard'!
Never give up on your dream because of the time it will take to achieve it - that time will pass anyway
Is that your real name or a nod in the direction of the great TV series that is 'Fringe'...?
Well done Jay - lovely thread.
WELCOME TO ALL OUR NEWBIES - A SLIM, HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!!
Don't forget about the Off Topic area. A great place to vent, share, mooch around, have a giggle,etc. re things that aren't strictly SW related. I know that in the past being able to post a trouble or gripe on there has just made the difference between comfort eating or not, and on a day when there's been no work or play to be had for one reason or another, browsing through it has stopped me boredom noshing as well.
The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues. (Elizabeth Taylor)
My new ticker (from August 2013)
I joined this forum back in 2010 and was good and lost 4 stone. But now at the start of 2012 I have put about 1.5stone back on. So now I still have over 5 stone to lose.
I am very mad at myself!!!
So, I am hoping that slimming world and this forum will be the answer.
So take care everyone, have a fun new years eve and raise a glass to a thinner and heathier 2012 xxx
