    Hi Kels, well done on your fantastic los so far!!!!
    I too am ex CD although I had to come off for medical reasons and ended up putting my weight back on!!!
    I think you will be amazed at how well you do on SW.. And unlike CD it will be a way of life for you and your family that is sustainable....
    Will you be going to class? I find that staying to class gives me a much needed boost each week. I am into week 8 now and have lost 17.5 lbs which is a good loss so far, and you will lose well too... maybe not the amounts you are used to, but a sustainable loss non the less.
    Some girls find they have a slight increase in weight after moving from CD to SW, don't be disheartened though, your body will restock it's glycogen stores and as such you might retain a bit more water but you wll soon ajust...

    Good luck on your new journey... just think at just 2lb a week you will be nearly 4 stone lighter by end of July!!

    Let us know how you get on!

    Well done on your loss to date hon! That is fab. Think you will find quite a few former CD-ers here LOL

    I used to use it as well, but missed food way too much. I have a final 2 stone to lose now, and am finding SW a breeze now that I have got my head around being able to eat! LOL

    Good luck, everyone here is so helpful and genuinely nice so you will get loads of tips and advise as well.

    Hi All

    Well just back from my first session.. lol
    bad news is i actually weigh more than i thought.. (boo-hoo)
    But good news is that i should have that extra few pounds of this week..
    this is a Q for everyone.. how much have you all lost week by week.. and is it stable?
    i know when i was on CD, the losses were fab, but you could eat a scabby horse, and gone back for the sadle.. lol

    thanks again..

    Hi CY
    My weight losses have been good <I was also on CD but put all my weight back on> I am on medication that causes water retention but I am still losing very steadily.... I am an week 8 and My losses are: 6.5, 2.5, 2, maint*, 3.5, 1, 2*, 4, <the stars are my water retaining monthly times> Thus 21.5lb in 8 weeks... Am hoping for another 3 this week as I have upped my exercise.

    Try not to use everyone else losses as a guage to measure your losses though as we are all different.

    Anne x

    Good luck with the plan....

    Hi Kel, My stopping point in the past has always been impatience.... It never came off fast enough for me!

    This time I decided I would aim at 2lb a week and relax if it it didn't happen.... over all I have lost more than the 2lb per week even with a maintain and a 1lb thrown in.... I always complete the graph on the slimming world site as I love to see the down ward trend.... whatever works I suppose!!! :0)
