New to slimming world - group discussion for men
I have just in the last 2 weeks commenced my quest on slimming world.
wondering if there are like minded men out there to share ideas and seek advice?
I have been watching this with interest to see if you would get any replies. Don't take it too personally that you haven't - I think the thing is that there are a number of men on this forum, but the things they want to know, the issues they discuss, etc., are no different from the women. In fact, unless there is a particular reason to do so, I don't usually notice the gender of the writer.
We are all just people with a common interest and goal. So just join in. We don't bite - well sometimes we do, but not often!
Theres not much difference between men/women in regards to the discussions and what info is needed.
The only differences are as follows
1) No star weeks
2) We can get a higher allowance of Syns
3) Due to 2) we tend to lose weight faster when following the plan. (not always the case)
I have been on SW since 2011 & have now been at target for almost 12 months!
I also lost weight quicker than the other members of my group, most weeks it was 3lbs.... I started at 18st 11.5lbs and now I am 11st 11.5lbs. good luck to all!

There's not much different apart from the higher allowance on syns.. As above I tend to lose it quicker than others at group. My average is 2.5lbs a week. I'm currently just over half way through my quest to lose 4 stone and I joined in jan.. (See my stats)
Good luck with your journey!
