    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie here currently on my first week at SW. Weigh in day is Tuesday for me and I have 2 stone to lose, and would like to lose one stone of that before I'm a bridesmaid in July. Motivations for losing weight: 1) not becoming diabetic, since every female on my maternal side is overweight and diabetic. 2) I want to wear skirts/shorts in the summer and not have legs rubbing together.
    Good luck to everyone

    Hi everyone. It's going well so far, thanks.

    I'm taking the book with me everywhere, and glad I have as it keeps me constantly checking what I can eat for free. It really highlights how I've put on so much weight in the past couple of years; all those "little" snacks add up to a lot of calories and for me the weight seems to go on my legs, which is unfortunate as my legs are also very short!

    I have tried online weigh-ins before but I really think I need the group support so have joined my local SW. If I only have myself to answer to, it's too easy to slip into my bad habits again! I am finding all the online support brilliant too. How about everyone else, do you go to the groups?

    I'm a bit confused that some people do the red and green options but my SW leader was only keen on the Easy Extras? I'll have to ask on Tuesday.

    I will NOT follow my family pattern of females getting diabetes in their 40's.

    Hi Julianne! I do extra easy and find it straight forward. Best of luck and I love the motivation! I also have the summer legs motivation along with the need to get to a healthy bmi. I've lost 1stone in my first six weeks so hopefully am on the right track! It's so helpful being able to come on hear and get tips and advice!

    Enjoy your journey!

    I'm doing home slimming, but only because my work doesn't allow me to commit to a group. I do ok though!
    Personally I do red/green, as I've done it before and know it inside out, which was best for starting it on my own, at home. EE is supposed to be easy though & fits into every day life well.

    Hi again,

    I joined in January and my leader told us all about extra easy didnt mention the other plans too much and I don't know much about them. Since joining in Jan I have nearly lost 2 and a half stone all on extra easy. I go to group to but must admit I have only recently started staying for the meetings. They are good as you get lots of tips and ideas etc x

    I agree staying can be really helpful and you pick up loads of ideas for cooking

    Our leader was on hols recently and the person that covered wasn't at all inspiring , really made a difference I thought

    At last week's SW meeting everyone had cooked something free for everyone to try. I loved the dips made with quark (it's like philadelphia made with skimmed milk) also good for making creamy pasta sauces. Glad I stayed for the meeting as got to eat all that yummy free food!

    Hi - welcome to the forum. Def a good idea to carry the book around til you get your head round it.
    Some people do stick to the ole Green and Original plans. It's good for...

    * people who struggle to get their 1/3 superfree in.
    * vegetarians / vegans
    * people who like to stick to the tried and tested
    * people on a tight budget who don't want to spend a fortune on fresh fruit / veg and haven't got a freezer to keep frozen stuff in (often students in this category)

    I sometimes will use it if I want 2 HExA and HExB's for some reason, and I can easily go Green (no meat) for the day. I prefer to stick to EE now, but sometimes need to be a bit creative to get that superfree in. Soups are quite handy for this.

    Good luck
