    Thumbs up Starting Slimming World

    I have just started Slimming World today. I am going it alone at home because I don't usually get home from work in London until 8pm and therefore don't have time to get to a meeting, also there are no Saturday meetings in my area unfortunately. So, is there any advice you lovely people could give me on the best things to do when starting out? I know a Wednesday is a pretty weird day to start. I was intending to start on Monday but that failed miserably!

    I think a midweek weigh in is better, if you have a treat at the weekend, you've got a few days to make it right again before weighing in.

    Good luck!

    I originally started on a Wednesday, but changed my WI day to a Friday, because Friday was normally the night I ate a few more bits than I should - gave me a whole week to fix it. Best tip is fill your cupboards with healthy bits, get rid of junk if you don't think you can handle it, because at least that way if you want to snack or you mess up and have a blow out, you've done damage limitation - it's much harder to go down the shops than it is to grab something quick out of a cupboard or fridge!

    Plan ahead, try and plan a rough weekly guide for dinners etc, so you know what you're having and what wiggle room you can give yourself for Syns/Treats - even if you don't do it 100% and fancy something different, you'll probably subconsciously pick stuff fairly similar.

    Most importantly, don't be too hard on yourself, if you have an off day or an off meal or feel rubbish, you are not alone, jump back on it but don't beat yourself up, it's a vicious cycle if you let it get you down - the more down you are the more you'll want to eat.

    Good luck!

    I see this is your first posting. Did you mean it to be pink? The problem is that I can't read pink on white - it would be much easier on the eye if it were black and white (although I agree that it would be less pretty!).

    I'm also doing it from home at the moment as I don't have time to go to group. I usually plan out what I'm going to have for the week and do lots of meals to put in the freezer. This really helps if you don't have a lot of time to prepare meals everyday. X

    Hi Jo. I started SW 2 wks ago, just going it alone and I find EE really simple to follow and there are some great recipes on here. I really haven't felt deprived or hungry since I started which is amazing. Hope it works as well for you! Good luck!
    Keeping on, keeping on!
