    Its just occurred to me that i get more encouragement from the Wii than anyone in Real life!!
    So does anyone encourage you or do you feel you are going it alone?!
    I do have online friends who are on the plan too but i mean on a daily/face to face basis.

    I am really lucky because my hubby is really supportive and encouraging and lots of people are really my kids are in there own way. Sometimes other peoples support and interest can be a pressure though which is why when In changed jobs I decided not to tell people there I was on sw so I could have a weight loss free zone of my life!
    Sorry to hear you don't get enough encouragement but just keep thinking how pleased you are with yourself on your journey :)

    Thankyou ladies! Good to hear i'm not the only one lol. It just made me laugh when the Wii said 'Well done'! and i realised noone else had said that lol.
    I'm a stubborn soul so in fact it spurs me on more!!

    I am lucky my hubby and family are supportive and interested in my SW journey but I do have to bring up the subject.

    I do wish hubby was more conscious of my SW Journey so he would be.more flexible where to eat for lunch when we are out rather than going to McDonald's or BK BUT Im not gonna ever complain cos its my journey not his, I can easily work with these situations cos they are always gonna be there for the rest of my life and SW has to fit the situation.

    I know my hubby is proud of me cus once in a while he say how proud he is if me.

    Sorry for the long post lol

    I'm very lucky that my boyfriend is extremely supportive - he plans and cooks slimming world meals with me and tells me how well I'm doing which I really value and appreciate so much. He's amazing :)

    My husband cooks SW food, but has only commented TWICE on my weight loss and that wasn't to me, but to his mum and sis. LOL, clearly 4st 9lbs is only obvious when asked by his family. lol.
    Work friends are very supportive, but that's it really. lol.

    My other half always comments on my weight loss/gain/sts for the week.
    If it's a loss he congratulates me and says how proud he is of me.
    If iv stayed the same or gained he kind of goes oh okay.
    Other than that work colleagues are, but my sister is too, maybe because I'm her bridesmaid and wants me to look fabulous! X

    My boyfriend is really supportive, he cooks SW meals and tries to think up new recipes! He's been following SW for a while now, and everyone's commented how great he looks. No one noticed the 2st I lost! Oh well!
