Hi everyone!!

I've been lurking for a little while but never properly introduced myself!
My name is Jodie and I've been trying to do slimming world for a few weeks now!!
I'm still getting used to the plan and calculating sins, but will get there eventually I'm sure!!

I have a little boy who's 3 and a little monkey at times, and a wonderful partner who is thankfully really supportive!

The last diet I did was Lighterlife, and it was fab: I lost 3 stone in 3 months, and felt amazing! Unfortunately I couldn't maintain it and over 2 years am back where I started!!

I now have about 5 stone to lose, but determined this time!!! Wish me luck!!

Anyway, look forward to chatting to all you lovely ladies (and gents!) and getting some great tips and ideas!!

This is a wonderful site and I'm thankful I found it!!

Have a good day!!!! :) xxx

Hi ya, I've just seen your reply on my hello thread. I'm a lurker too, it's taken a lot of courage to start posting but i'm getting into it now.

Slimming world is a great diet, a few people i know have lost loads of weight on it. I just have trouble getting my head round it lol!

Good Luck with the weight loss!

Hi Jodie, Welcome to the forum.

It's great that you have decided to get to grips with losing weight - got to be a big bonus healthwise apart from anything else.
I am not doing SW but nevertheless when I have looked into it I couldn't fathom it out at all. Expect you will get the hang of it soon, anything new takes a bit of time...

Wish you all the very best ... :)

Thank you!!! Was beginning to feel i was invisible or that my posts were not showing up!! Hahaha!!!

I agree - anything new is a challenge, sure i'll work it all out soon enough!!!

Emmaline - just seen your ticker - omg - you've done amazingly well losing 30lb - i'm so jealous!!! I used to do WW, but it was straight after Lighterlife and i was always dismayed by the slow results - my best friend is on WW and loves it!!!!

Huge congrats on the loss, hope we can acheive the same!!! :) xxx

Hi jodie, I have about the same amount of weight to lose as you, it's a bit daunting when you think of it like that, I'm trying to just focus on half a stone at a time, otherwise it seems like an impossible task! I have a 3 year old daughter and an almost 2 year old boy, I'm determined to be a yummy mummy one day!:) good luck to you
