    Welcome to the site, I joinned this forum last week and everyone has been so helpful and friendly.

    I sorry I cant give you any tips for SW, but theres loads of people here that will beable to.

    But I have found a few tips which have helped me start to lose weight.

    1st is drink water, lots of it! I never knew how dehydrated I was. We need to drink at least 8 cups of water a day. Funny thing is if you dont drink enough your body thinks your hungry, Since I started drinking water I find myself less tempted to raid the fridge ;)

    2nd tip is beaware of your food intake, theres loads of hidden calories in foods, I was shocked when I started looking at lables just how much sugar is in different sauces for example.

    3rd set a long term goal, but break that up into smaller goals that you can reach.


    Not much help I know, but it has gotten me started, very best of luck in your goals.

    Ohh one other thing, look around the forums, chat to people and post updates, support is very important and there great here at giving it!

    good luck!
