    Hello everybody 😃

    Hello, just wanted to come and say hey. Ive been doing sw from home and am now on my 6th day I've lost 5 lbs so far ! Happy days. I'm 26 years old and a single mother of 2 young kids. I'm also a full time chef so around food constantly lol. This isn't my 1st attempt at shifting the pounds, I use to weigh 22stone 4lbs and had a BMI of 42 i gave lighter life a go after having my daughter, and lost the bulk of it, I'm now weighing in at 14.10 so done pretty well but have maintained this weight for around 2 years now. My goal is to weigh 11.7 as I'm 5ft 8.

    Anyway I've borrowed a friends books she had spare and here I am. Because I'm not going to a group I'm unsure about my syns so have been having between 5-10 a day hope that's right ? I've been having the same breakfast each day. 2 alpen light cereal bars (70kcal ones) and a small banana then for lunch I've either had pasta with veg added or a jacket spud n beans or some homemade salad and then dinner I've had pretty much the same as lunch but swapped em around. So yeah not being to adventurous just yet lol you'd think me being a chef I'd be whipping all sorts up but I'm still getting used to the plan I'm doing extra easy by the way.

    Would love some support and this seems like the perfect place for someone who can't make a group, hope your all well x

    Hi Claire - welcome to the boards!

    Firstly, congratulations on your weight loss journey so far. What an incredible loss you've had so far.

    There are a few people who use these boards who don't go to group (including me) and it's great. They are a great means of support and for finding some new ideas too. I wouldn't worry about not being too adventurous yet, especially whilst getting used to the plan. It sounds like you are off to a great start with your 5lbs off this week. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your future posts, especially in the recipe sections for some new ideas.

    One thing I've found useful is joining a 'weigh in' thread for the day that I weigh in at home. I feel that it works similar to a group, by posting my weight weekly it makes me accountable.

    Good luck with your Slimming World journey x
    Positive thoughts.Positive actions.Positive results.

    Hi and welcome!

    I'm a newbie too but I'm going to class so just wanted to make you aware of two things that I have learnt from reading your post:-

    1- you can have up to 15 syns a day
    2- the new style alpen lights are no longer healthy extra choices as the receipe has changed so you need to syn them.

    You've done an amazing job with your weight loss so far, huge congratulations

    Xx
