    Thanks for that :D

    I lost my 40lbs with CD, I just lost the plot when I had to start eating real food and couldn't follow through the plans. After weeks of yo-yoing with my last half a stone I decided to get serious and do WW. I only started on Monday but I have high hopes it'll be just what I need to get this last stone off, hopefully in 4 - 5 weeks.

    Well done to you. i was with WW before and did so well but started a new job and cant make the meetings anymore and it was a slippery slope from there. Lately ive been feeling unwell and sluggish....I know its the weight so i have to try again....Only found this forum last night so Carpe Diem, and here i am. it has given me the kick start i need. stories like yours make me want to do this even more. Thank you.

    Hello!! I am new also. I did CD last year and lost just over 2 stone...hvae consequently put it all back on (and 4 extra pounds) since May. So, I have decided slow and steady wins the race and WW is the way forward. I have a real problem with portion contro so the points system is perfect for me.
    Had my first day yesterday and it went great. Also went shopping with a very specific shopping list based on menu choices. Getting married in a year, therfore I have to start trying on dresses in about 5 months so I want to feel great when I do this. Big hello to everyone and have a great day....day 2 begins for me now!

    another newbie here...
    I've come looking for motivation....
    I've been at 'goal weight' for nearly 3 years, and i can feel myself on that slippery slope....
    i went a meeting recently and brought a new starter pack..even hubby is doing it!
    i wish i could find the enthusiasm i had 3 years ago....
    here's hoping i don't have to go and buy bigger clothes...:sigh:
    looking forward to chatting to like minded people, and sharing experiences:):)

    Hi Paula

    You'll be fine - best to sort it out now before you do hit the slippery slope. Well done for nipping it in the bud x
