    Hey all! Hoping for a bit of support on this new thread! I'm trying to lose 2.5 stone which will take me to the bottom of my healthy range. i am hoping to do this by May which seems a long way away but I'm still conscious I may not get there in time especially because I'm only just in the overweight category. Have people found on slimming world it is slow to lose weight if you are not heavily overweight in the first place?

    Thanks everyone x

    Hello,

    Im hoping to drop 2.5-3 by mid May. Ive been advised that the average loss is 1-2lbs a week but then other people have said their average is 3lbs a week.
    Im starting tomorrow so I dont actually know but Id guess its different for everyone. Friends that are slim and have done SW are still dropping lbs a week so good luck!

    Yes on my second week! Have done sw before and know it works, just wish I hadn't slipped. Gradually put majority of weight on over past few years

    Just stick to it, lots of superfree too! So I try and have salad with most main meals e.g tonight having spag bol full of veg with a bowl of salad too! Also don't deny yourself, so enjoy the syns! I always used to find that I'd lose less if I deprived myself and skipped meals etc! Here goes though, might find it harder this time! How are you doing?

    I'd like to join I'm too - I've just had my second baby and I'd like to lose 3 stone by my husband's birthday mid May. I'm following Slimming World too, but just doing it from home as life with a toddler and newborn is just too hectic for classes! Looking for some support and motivation from here instead!
