    Hi, Newbie here!

    HI,

    Just wanted to take 2 mins to introduce myself. I'm a 26 year old, full time working, overweight mother of 2 and wife of 1 lol. I realised my weight has been creeping and creeping and creeping and I am currently 10st heavier than I would like to be. I joined my local SW and lost 12lbs in week 1 (Shocked to say the least!) I then went on to lose 0.5lb in week 2. I wasnt expecting another 12 but a 1 or 2 would have been nice. Anyway I am wittering on! Going to try and figure out what I am doing her and get my head round the sight. Looking forward to getting to 'know' you all

    Hello!! Wow, well done on your 12lb weight loss- amazing! :-) Well done on your 0.5lb too. I always think that a loss is still a loss. I've had weeks where I've had good losses and then done exactly the same things the following week and only lost 0.5lb. A little frustrating but still better than a gain ;-) Good luck for this week!x

    Keep up the good work and if you ever have a question this is thr right place
    I CAN DO THIS!!!!

    You mightn't be as disheartened if you think of it as 12.5lbs in 2 weeks instead of breaking it up. That is an amazing loss, anyone would be delighted with that!! Well fone, good luck for this week 🙏

    I agree! Any loss is still a loss no matter how big or small! 1lb a week is nearly 4 stone in a year!! Good Luck!!!

    Hiya! Well I'm exactly the same,it's the cakey choccy stuff that I crave,try stirring an options chocolate sachet into a vanilla mullerlite,some options are just 1 or2 syns and they sometimes hit the spot,a bit like a chocolate pudding taste. Or,what I love to do is make a magic pancake in the usual way but mix in an options (there's a theme here lol) just before I fry it up! Mmmm choccy ish and cakey ish?! I know I'm strange!

    Hi

    im really enjoying it. I've tried dieting loads before, but something seems to have clicked this time, and I'm just so determined.
    i have 3 things keeping me motivated.
    1) my son starts school in August and the school takes a photo of the little ones with their parents. With my other boys photos I've been pregnant or just had a baby, so want to look slim this time.
    2) my friend gets married in September and I want to wear a dress, a nice one that I picked cos I like it not because it's the only thing in my size.
    3) I'm going to Portugal in October and I don't want to have to cover up, granted I'll never wear a bikini, but it'd be nice to feel comfortable.

    you should get a goody box, that's filled with low syn treats that are just for you. Then if you have a craving for something sweet or savoury, you will always have something so you don't fall off plan.
