    Hi!
    Welcome to the forum and Slimming World :D I've never done a proper 'diet' before, mainly because I like my food too much-so SW is perfect for me!! I'm still a newbie though and learning new things all the time :)
    Hope you enjoy it.

    hello! i'm new to SW aswell - am on my 4th week and have been enjoying it more or less! By far the best one out there for me personally, i've lost 5.5lbs so far - not a huge deal but i am pleased anyways :D. I am always on the EE plan, thats the plan your Leader will try to encourage at the meetings but my MIL does red and green and has some excellent losses (4 stone in 18months) - good luck with your Journey xx

    Hi,
    Welcome to SW!!!
    I've got my 3rd weigh in tomorrow and have lost 6.5lbs so far!
    I am finding it relatively easy - a lot of adjustment in the first week, especially the amount of fresh food that I now buy. It is great for the whole family and we've even had some friends and their children over and I cooked a selection of 'free' curries which they all loved!
    I really enjoy the image theray (and I'm normally quite a reserved person :eek: ) which helps with motivating me for the rest of the week.
    I know it's only early days, but I couldn't recommend slimming world enough:D.

    I do hope that it works well for you and this site has been enourmously inspiring.

    Hi there and welcome to MM and SW!
    Yes, the plan is fantastic, yes, you can loose weight!
    My advice would be to make sure you write things down and try and plan as much as you can in advance. Also, dont guess syn values thinking that as it may be a healthier option it would be fewer syns...that isnt always the case!

    Good luck with your journey.

    Can someone tell me what is 'image therapy' I go to a class every week and have never knowingly had this - there is weigh in and awards etc and raffle and that's it - am I missing something?

    Hi,
    That's it - it stands for Individual Motivation and Group Experience.
    Anyway - it helps me to listen to other stories of success or blocks; gives me ideas for things to try and also be aware of things that might get in the way.
    Hope this helps!

    Image therapy is where the consultant goes round the group reading out each weight loss/gain and discussing the reasons etc. I'm sure you do it, just didn't know it was Image Therapy!

    All you have to do is forget everything you ever learned about losing weight! You'll look at the plan and think "I'll never lose weight eating all that"! But you will! And you'll never look back! Good luck and welcome aboard!
