    Hey all, I found this forum via an Android app I installed and decided to join it properly on this old interwebs.

    I joined Slimming World last week, my emotional eating habits have caused lots of weight gain in the last few months, adding to the depression and thus a vicious cycle of self loathing and comfort food.

    As well as joining Slimming World I've been referred by a counsellor to an eating disorders service to deal with the psychological aspects of it all. I thought I would join this forum, because there is no such thing as too much support, and I figure we're all in the same boat, so there wont be any harsh judgements.

    I'm happy to say I lost 8lbs in my first week on the Green/Extra Easy plan and hope to lose at least 4lbs on my next weigh-in.

    I look forward to getting to know people here as we all continue on our journey to a new healthier and happier self :)

    Hi, and welcome to the site xx. It's really great fun here, loads of people to chat to, free advice, useful tips, games...
    Wow...well done on your first WI, that's a fabulous start. I love SW, so easy to do and fits in with normal life. My son joined a couple of weeks ago and lost 3 1l2 lbs tonight and got slimmer of the week. On the way home he said he couldn't understand it cos he hadn't really been dieting! I had to explain to him that he HAD been dieting...its just that its so simple to do he hadn't noticed!
    It sounds as though u hav some gd support around u, and u will find lots more here.
    Good luck with your weight loss journey, look forward to following how u get on xx

    Thanks for the warm welcome dawn :) a fellow SW'er. I agree, I can't believe that I lost half a stone in a week without having to resort to starvation. When they told me I went into a thrilled state of shock, and to have my first sticker/certificate already is a real morale boost to keep going.

    Looks like you're at the beginning of your journey too (joined SW 3 weeks ago I assume?) So I wish you well with it all, you're going great so far! x
