    Well, I have tried WW but I didn't get on with it very well. I've decided to Slimming World because it looks amazing. I have the books, and it makes it really easy to decide what I am going to eat.
    Me and the OH got engaged last week so this is prompting me to lose the weight. We're not going to get married until 2010 for exactly this reason! I want to get down to my goal weight next year and then maintain it for a while before the wedding. I really hope I can do this as everytime I look at myself I am disappointed with the weight I have gained.
    On the bright side, I was a size 10-12 only 2 years ago so hopefully that means I can get back down to that (or somewhere near that).
    I'd love to hear from people who have ideas for something to eat when you can't be bothered to prepare a full on meal.
    Thanks in advance for all of your support!:)

    hiya hun
    i have tried ww 5 times! and most i ever lost was 16lb!!!!!

    been on sw for 17 weeks and am 0.5lb off 2.5st!!! so i think this plan works for me!!!

    bless my hubby said last night that he won't ever refer to SW plan as a diet he calls it my adventure!!!!
    i really don't see it as a diet, i see it as a way of life
    well done for joining and good luck on your adventure hun

    Week 1 going great!

    I think I have done well this week sticking to the diet. I hope I will lose something. I bought the curry recipe book and the free foods recipe book. I had egg and SW chips last night and they were lush!!
    I'm enjoying this diet as is my OH!:D

    Woo hoo!!

    I weighed myself today (I'm doing SW from home) and I have lost 7lbs!!
    I'm sooo happy with that. It doesn't even feel like I am on a diet, I just have to think a little more carefully about what to eat. The food is great and even my OH likes it! I find that I can pretty much have the same thing as before but just changing a few key ingredients.
    I know that on your first week it is a big loss but I was expecting this. As I said, I don't even feel like I was on a diet.
    I actually did W8 (VLCD) for a week and lost 7lbs! Why did I even bother starving myself for that diet when I can have pretty much whatever I want with SW.
    I'm soo prooud of myself.
    Thanks everyone for all of the advice!

    It's weird but even though I have lost 7lbs, my OH hasn't lost anything and we have been eating pretty much the same things!
