    Hello everybody!

    Just thought i'd say hi, i'm moving over to SW as of today. I started losing back in feb on CD, lost 3 stone in 3 months on that and then for various reasons i moved over to atkins, losing another 1.5 stone ish. I've lost my motivation with atkins recently and find sorting out breakfasts, dinners and lunches a tad tiresome. I'd like also to start upping my carb level as i have a few lbs left until i reach a healthy bmi level which is what i set my goal at. I'd like to be at and slightly under this level before Christmas. So here i am... totally new. I've never done SW before. My mum recently attended the first meeting to get the books and now she knows what she's doing she's let me borrow the books to get started. I think i'll mostly be doing red days for now as i'm already used to low carb levels. Nice to meet you all! :)

    Hello mrs, good to hear from you! Yeah atkins went well for me. Just starting to struggle a little with planning quick breakfasts when at work and things to take into work to eat. Seem to be working loads at the moment so it was getting worse really. Mum's had good results on SW so thought i'd give the red days a go. I need to start upping my carb levels anyways and i thought this may prove a nice controlled way of doing so.

    Hi Claire and welcome!!
    You've done really well so far and I dont think you are going to have any trouble adjusting to SW!

    Good luck.
