    OK I have looked all over to find where I might fit and I tried to introduce myself on other threads and I might as well of been invisible. (SW will help to have less of me but I don't choose to be invisible)
    I want to offer my encouragement and I would like to be the recipient of encouragement (when needed)
    Slimming World has come to the USA and there are literally only 5 meetings going here right now. This is so new and a new way to think.
    The only meal plan we have is the Extra Easy and it works. One lady in my group has already gotten rid of 25lbs+.
    Tonight I made the Scan Bran Chocolate Cake.
    I just want to say hello! and invite anyone to cheer us on across the ocean!

    :D

    I'm exceptionally new to the forum, but I live in Texas too. Do you have more information about this? Scan Bran Chocolate Cake sounds good... what's in it?

    Welcome to the forum, you will find it very friendly & there is always somebody about who can help/offer advice when & if needed.

    I can't believe SW has only just go to USA I just assumed it was worldwide.

    If you are on facebook there is a thread on here somewhere were you can find & add lots of us.

    Good luck with the weight loss :D

    Welcome to the Forums and glad to have you along (from a 1/2 american living in the UK).
    Just a question about the books...do they include the syns on products you get in America as I wanted to get some for my mom who lives there.

    I made Slimmer of the Week

    Hi All,
    I made slimmer of the week.
    Where do you get your little flag things that look like the stickers?
    Wohoo.
    I like this already.
    I have a inkling that it was a Scan Bran loss. I think that stuff might need a warning label....

    The only place I have found Scan Bran in the USA is at a Slimming World Meeting.
    There are some in Flower Mound, Lewisville, Plano and Frisco.
    Do you live near any of these places?

    Welcome Texas!!! The company I work for has an office in Houston and I get to visit there on occasion (last time it was mid July & the humidity was a killer!!). Good luck with SW I have had questions about it from my colleagues over there as they know I have been doing it for ages now but I don't know whether any of them have a meeting they can join yet. I wondered how they would do it over there, it is interesting that they only do EE though and you struggle to get scan bran.

    Hello!!
    Spotted your thread and couldn't resist coming to say hello! Well done with your Slimmer of the Week award, that's awesome :D
    I actually thought Slimming World was an American thing, not an English thing only just making it across the Atlantic :eek:
