Giving up on Slimming World


Full Member
Me and my slimming world partner Michelle have decided to go it alone. We have been and bought some scales and are going to weigh each other once a week instead.

This came about because last sw weighin my hubby came with us cos we were going straight out afterwards. After paying my money and getting weighed we left, hubby asked how much we had just paid and when we said £4.50 he laughted and said what a rip off! We were only in there 4 minutes!
We never stay for the class afterwards as i find it really dull and not very informative. Not like RC or WW meetings i have been to in the past.

So we have decided Monday is going to be our new weighin day as we do Legs bums and Tums and swimming on a Monday.

Were still going to pay our £4.50 each week into a piggy bank, then in March were going to Palma for Michelles hen party so the money is then going to be shared back out and were going to treat ourselves to some nice new thin clothes..

So that gives us 28 weeks @ £4.50 = £126.00 each.

Today is the last day of my first week on Zenical. On Saturday i made a Banoffee pie because we had friends coming for tea and when they were all tucking into it i declined. Even tho it is my favourite. then last night a group of us went to the chinese resturant and i opted for just a starter of Marinated Chicken in Lettuce wrap. It was yummy. My hubby was so suprised by how good i have been this weekend. Will see how good at weighin tonight!! ha

Hi Syanna
I have been doing just what you and your friend are going to do. I started my diet just over a month ago and really didn't want to fork out money every week to just get weighd. So I've just been using slimming world recipes from their website and weighing myself on the wii. I've managed to loose a stone and have just started xenical on 31st July 2009. I'm hoping to shift another 3 stone - fingers crossed.

Hope this works for you and you get to splash the cash on some new clothes for the Hen night. Good luck.

Had my first weighin last night at the sports centre after a week on zenical and I have lost 0 lbs! I have stayed exactly the same as my SW weight last wednesday.

A few days ago i felt like i had lost weight, i thought i looked slimmer adn my clothes fitted better, however last night at the gym i felt heavy and bloated and new i wouldnt have lost anything.
Just been reading the Diet Coke post and have to admit i drink 3-4 cans of this a day. Which is prob why I am feeling so bloated. Also not had a number 2 for a few days now.

Will just have to wait till next week to see a loss. I do usually weigh on a Wednesday and on the SW scales so weighing on a monday on the Gym scales could also have something to do with it. ha.
