D.I.E.T. - Did I Eat That
I've been on a weight loss journey since March 2010, but have only started Slimming World 4.5 weeks ago. Since then I have already received my first stone award. (Cheesy, girly sticker, :D )

I'm quite happy with SW. I'm sticking to it as best as I can and have only slipped up in the first week. Thought Frankfurter Sausages and Black Puddings were free food. :eek: That resulted in a no loss and no gain first weigh in. 2nd week 5.5 lbs loss, 3rd week 4.5 lbs loss and last week I had a 4 lbs loss. Really happy! ;)

Well and last weekend I had about 5 Tesco Shortbread & Fruit Biscuits instead of the 1 I wanted. But with 2 syns each, I balanced that out with lower syns days.

So, I'm looking forward to using this forum with you all. Get practical hints and tips and share my own insights.

ooo ello & welcome :)

Haha, frankfooters and black pudding that made me chuckle. When i first started i thought muller RICE was free. ate about 4-5 a day thinking they'd boost my losses.. ah dear! needless to say they didnt!

Good luck, and fab loss so far!

Thanks for the warm welcome. Yes, I chuckled about myself after I had a chat with the group leader after the first weigh in. But I was well angry with myself, too. And I thought to myself: "See, this free food rubbish ain't working..." :sigh:

.... Well it is working now, so I'm not in that mood anymore.

PS: How do you display the awards in here?
copy and paste..

go to user cp at top left in blue bar.. then menu on your left 'edit signature' then paste..

oh yes. I remember that feeling well! .. proved me wrong and is you too! x


I see the light!
Heya Tom

welcome to the forum, its a great place to be, loads of info and ideas, I can't do without it. In fact I know if I am having a bad few days as I hardly think to come on here, which is wrong!!!

As for the stickys on your signature, I think you have to have 50 posts before you can add them, maybe someone can correct me on this if I am wrong??

Well done on your losses so far, and good luck on your journey

Can't believe I bought my first regular, non-stretch jeans in W38 L29 (38" waist) on Saturday. I required a special jeans from a special shop for bigger people when I first started losing weight in March 2010. My size varied between W48 and W50 (48" or 50" waist) at the time.

This isn't all down to Slimming World, but still, great!

Massive well done. That's amazing.
