    Hi there,
    Went to my very first SW meeting last Tuesday. I haven't began properly as need to go shopping to stock up on chicken breast, pasta etc! Hoping to begin properly on the upcoming Tuesday good and proper!

    I could really do with a proper close set of buddies who are going through the same thing. I am hoping to lose about 5-6 stone as my long term goal but taking it a pound at a time :)

    Basics are: I am 20 years old, started at 16 stone 7 and now currently weigh 15 stone 10 (and have done for 3 weeks :( ) by cutting down and want to be at around 11 stone eventually.

    I look forward to meeting buddies :)

    Hi Jade,

    I am currently finishing my third week of sw and have a similar goal to you. I started at 16st 2lbs, and have lost 6.5lbs so far (weighing in tonight so hoping to have lost a little more). I also want to be around 11 stone, and it'd be good to have someone to talk to who's on a similar path.

    Good luck getting everything started properly soon, and I'll look forwards to following your weight-loss (and hopefully losing along side you!)

    Hi Jade,
    I joined slimming world last Tuesday too. First weigh in tomorrow and fingers crossed! I am looking to loose at least 2 1/2 stone.

    I could do with having someone to talk to along the way as I am doing this alone.

    Good luck with your weight loss!
    Jessie

    I'd like to lose the weight yesterday(!), but will try to be realistic and give myself a year. A year has always seemed like such a long time, but as I've gotten bigger and bigger as each year has passed, I feel like I could have done something about it by now if I'd realised there were no quick fixes, and if i'd given it a year 3 years ago, I'd already be slim! I'm not feeling too optimistic for tonight's weigh-in, as I've had a funny week and missed quite a few meals - but if I can lose 1/2lb I'll still be happy as I'll get my 1/2 stone award. Then I'm going to make sure I'm 100% on plan next week, and hopefully get a good loss again.

    I must say I think sw is amazing. I've done it a few times in the past but without any real commitment (still with good results), but now that I'm serious about losing this weight, I think the sw plan is fantastic. I'm thinking differently about food and can see this being a way of life for me. It seems so easy, as nothing is forbidden. I'm sure I'll have some hiccups along the way - but I'm positive I'm going to get slim this time!

    Yeah I know what you mean about the end goal feeling so far away but a year will come round so fast! I'm not expecting a quick fix and I want it to become my way of life because a diet isn't just for now, it's a change of lifestyle! Awww, got my fingers crossed for your loss to ensure you get your 1/2 stone award :D Yeah deffo expect some hard times but will get there in the end :)

    I'm sure you'll be able to get a good chunk of weight off by your holiday too. It's good to have something to work towards!
