a new starter....

Hi Guys,

After losing a large amount on CD last year, I have toyed on and off with it since jan, I am now 2 stone heavier than my lightest weight - but still MASSIVELY lighter than when I began CD - but now the time has come for me to try a different approach.

I have done SW many moons ago - but found it hard to last more than 6-12 weeks - I think this was more down to the fact I had a lot of weight to shift and was too impatient (prob why CD did work!) BUT now I really want to address my (still) very un healthy eating habits and hopefully shift the 2 stone I have gained (maybe shift an additional 14-21lbs as well!)

I am going to my class tomorrow at 7pm for official weigh in but have got the new book (from last time in jan!!) so have started today - will update and let you know how I am doing...

hi i also have started back with sw after doing this and cd back and forth, i started today properly and have been 100%
started with my weetabix, then had a ham salad for dinner and made a turkey mince meatloaf for tea and had that with salad too.
now having some banana's with fromage frais its great with some splenda in, just like a plain yougart then.

Welcome back to SW Stilltoowide :cool:
hi guYS,

Well I went last nigt - kinda scarpered in and scarpered out - had my little girl with me, but planning to stay next week - When I have done SW before I really haven't stayed to many meetings (some of this due to anxiety issues) but definatley going to try next week- so day 3 today and still on track - had scrambled eggs and bacon for brekkie today.....

Thanks to everyone who has popped in to say hi - and good luck for all of you today!!

Your breakfast sounds yummy! :D
hey dq,

brekkie was loverly.. but lunch was really good too - chopped up crabsticks, cucumber and tomato, plenty of vinegar - all in one bowl - was delish!!

DQ - u used to do cd? How have you found the mental side of this diet, ie the "slower" losses? Did it take you a while to adapt - or have you started this with a competley different mindset?

Unfortunately I had no choice but to stop doing CD - I hurt my back, and am on a range of tablets that mean my Dr said I had to come off of CD.

I was very upset originally, but am determined to put 110% into SW and do the best I can. If I can lose weight then great, but maintaining even at the size that I am is an achievement.

So I guess the small losses don't get me (too) down :rolleyes: because it's simply nice to see the scales going down again after such a traumatic year.

I actually lost 45 lbs doing CD earlier in the year, then did my back in and started suffering from water retention, etc. :cry:

Sorry for long-winded post - basically, promised myself that doing something is better than doing nothing and I'll take what I can get!! :p

Good for you DQ, hopefully we help encourage each other - are you enjoying SW? Do you intend to bounce back to CD if and when you are off the tablets, I am SO hoping that I will be patient as I really feel that SW will help address my eating issues.

Have a good day

I am enjoying doing SW but am keeping my options open. I have been reading about the unit diet a lot lately. It looks like my back is a long-term thing so going back to CD may not be an option :(

now im curious whats the unit diet lol
anything to do with dieting im so nosey incase its better than this one, i do love sw though as u can eat so much and u dont have to be hungry.

Check out the Unit Diary subforum - Midnight Sparkles is doing really well and it is taking off!! :cool:

And thank you - it's actually a photo of me I like! :p
Hey DQ,

All diets need time - I think we all need to find one that suits us best life-styles etc - Give slimming world some time I am sure it will work for us!! - I have posted on your other thread.

Chin up!!!


Queen of the Damned
Thanks Stilltoowide, I keep reminding myself I am in this for the long haul, and if CD is not an option then I will just have to try another way. :thankyou:
