I've been on a diet for a decade with weight ranging from 11 stone to 15 and a half (im 5ft 11).
This time last year I got married and was at the bottom end weight wise after more or less starving myself with stress. Since our wedding day I've gained 4 and a half stone in under a year...

Thinking about taking the plunge and having a go at some form of gentle exercise?
A group of us ladies were chatting today about this very subject earlier today, and thought a thread for ‘exercise newbies’ might be useful. We wanted a friendly, relaxed place to log our activity, ask questions...

Hi all, I know we have various weight loss challenges but I thought I would start an exercise one for June.

Okay, so I love food. Straight to the point. And there has definitely been times in my life where I've loved food a little too much. Luckily, I was young, and my body type meant that I was able to lose the weight without too much effort. However, my body shape also means that I'll never be one...
My name is Dee, I'm 30 years old, a wife and mother and a repeat dieter. I've tried so many times in the past to lose weight, I'd manage to drop maybe 5 or 10lbs and then just....go back to my old habits and every time I'd put back on that 10lbs lost plus another 10lbs on top. So now I have...

I'm starting slimming world again on my own at home and work out around 4-5 times a week. I'm just wondering how I would work out the extra syns you get for exercise? Any help would be really appreciated :)
