    Well can't you tell it's January with all the newbees!!!

    Hi everyone!! I started SW on Tuesday and am absolutely loving it!! Time will tell if I lose weight but can feel it in my clothes already!! I have never tried SW before but think this may be the diet for me as I always feel full...I have done WW and Rosemary Connolly before had steady weight loss with both but got bored and hungry!!! But 2011 is a new year for me I'm fed up of my Wii Fit telling me I'm obese and saying ouch when I stand on it (cheeky) I will be sure to let you know how my weight loss goes...I have a good feeling about this and am feeling VERY focussed

    I also wanted to say how FANTASTIC this site is, I have installed the app on my phone and been sat here quiet (for a change) for hours! I have learnt so much already and glad the support and answers to questions is there on tap!! Thankyou!!!

    Bye for now
    Laura xxx :) xxx

    Hi Laura, I'm a newbie to this site too and loving that I can access the support through my iPhone. I'm actually replying to your thread from my phone. The only downside is that I've got to rely on memory as I can't actually see your post now. I've done SW before in the past and had great success with it. I'm optimistic that this time should be no different and determined that even if it's hard in the first few weeks getting back into the plan, I will stick with it. Fingers crossed for the new slimmer us! Lisa

    Hi Lisa, Laura,

    I'm new to the site and started SW classes this week. I think it's great and so useful to know I can pick up my phone and a few minutes reading gives me new motivation and excitement all over again! I really want this to be the last time I decide to 'start' losing weight and just do it!!

    Good luck I hope everyone succeeds!! X

    Well good luck for Tuesday! I'm sure you will have done brilliantly!:) a quick note though...just in case your 'first week loss' isn't as big as expected, last time I lost 2lbs in my first week and was a little disappointed (only as all the other new staters had done much better!) but came back week two to lose 6! Everyone is different and your body adjusts differently.

    My WI is thurs, I've been really good so far, used my syns fir a glass of wine last night while socialising with friends, I really savoured, appreciated and enjoyed it:) makes a change to finishing the bottle (and no groggy head this morning!)

    Gonna start my day with a walk round the local racecourse...some fresh air and exercise!!

    Hope everyone has a brilliant day, keep it up and remember 'one day at a time' :) x

    that's fantastic Laura, sounds like the plan is definitely working for you :) I'm not due to weigh until Saturday feels like ages away. I'm a bit worried though as I got on my own scales today and my weight hadn't changed, even though I feel like I've been really disciplined, planning, writing it down etc. I even went out for lunch with friends today and watched them eat chicken kebabs lol X

    Hi Laura - I'm new to SW too after losing a stone on it before, and I'm not too far away from you actually - in Lancaster. Hope it works out for you - seems you are doing really well so far!

    Hey there!

    Well first week done and I lost 3.5lbs! I'm really pleased with that but will be more pleased if I can do the same again next week! :)

    Got my first Zumba class tomorrow too...that should be fun, the criteria for success is not falling flat on my face! haha:)

    Hope everyone is having a good day!
