    Hi

    I started on the Slimming World diet today, having previously spent the last 3 or so years on the Weight Watchers diet. To be fair to the WW diet, I have kept off 2 stone - but of the 3.75 stone I lost I gained back 1.75 stone. :cry:

    So, I've decided to make a fresh start, and have decided to give the slimming world diet a go.

    I'm doing this at home and am not attending classes - as the likelihood is that I wouldn't attend in the first place as I don't know anyone and my past experiences of classes from WW have been dire. The last one I went to had recently changed leaders and the new leader was like a teenage hyper cheerleader on crack - so I didn't stick around for the meeting. I don't have enough patience unfortunately.

    I think I have my head around the SW diet, although it does go abit against the grain - especially in comparison to the WW regime. But I was wondering if anyone had any useful nuggets of advice to offer a newbie like myself. Any advice or experiences would be very gratefullly appreciated.

    Starlight, wow, did you lose 5lbs last week? If so, I AM impressed. And I agree, looking at the posts it seems loads of people are moving from WW to SW. Any advice to give - things your learnt from week 1?

    I made a concious effort to buy and eat things I didnt usually have so I couldnt work out the points value. Stock up on plenty free food, if youre doing green days, get Mug Shots, Super Noodles etc and fruit.

    Youll be amazed at how much youre eating but dont worry about it ;)
