    Hi folks - not many blokes here it would appear...

    anyway, i have been attending my group for 3 weeks, and so far i have lost 17.5 pounds - a long way to go though!!!

    Hope to keep in touch with some people here. Main motivation for me is to be more active with the children, and hopefully not end the year single!!

    Sounds like you are all doing fabulously - well done all!!

    Hoping to lose steadily, 2.5-3.5 pounds a week for the next 3 months or so - should have lost 3 stone in 3 months i reckon. I "pre-paid" for the Sliiming World thing for 12 weeks, and i am 3 weeks in. I want to have lost 3 stone by the time those 12 weeks are up - that is my first target.

    I went to the gym in my lunch hour today - oof.

    Hi, i'm new to this forum but not new to dieting!!
    Got engaged at Christmas so hope that my wedding will give me the motivation i need to lose the weight. (along with your support :))

    I've recently been diagnosed with PCOS & have been advised that the low GL diet works best for this.
    So far i have found it really difficult as bread, potatoes, rice or pasta seem to be the staple of every recipe i have ever known. if anyone out there has any tips for me i'd be very grateful!!
    Would also be nice to speak to anyone out there with PCOS who is trying to lose weight.
    Thanks xx

    Hi Pink Princess. Well done on your weightloss so far! how have you found it?

    PCOS is Polycystic ovary syndrome. its an endocrine/metabolic disorder. it effects weight as the hormone imbalance causes weight gain but then weight gain makes the hormone imbalance worse. bit of a vicous circle. There is more 2 it but if i lose the weight hopefully the others will go away 2! :) xx

    Thanks - well, Slimming World is working for me too so far (incidentally, hope the fight against PCOS is your next success), but i am trying to build in some proper exercise - i would like to think i can make it to the gym, maybe 4 times a week - for a mix of swimming and running.

    Will see how that goes though.
