    :wave_cry: hi i am new to this forum but not to weightloss. my journey began in 2005 weighing over twenty stones i joined scottish slimmers was losing well but due to work had to go it alone in sept 09. i have successfully lost over 8 stones got down to 11 stones at my lowest but over a year i maintained at between 11 6 and 11 12. last november i had over 6 lbs of excess skin removed my weight has crept up a bit but i decided that i was going to have a change and a big push to get to goal but needed to change the diet i was on so i have choosen slimming world. i am loving it so far no weigh in yet its just nice very little counting and loadsa food :D my question is will i really lose weight ?? any expereiences i msticking to the rules but loving being able to eat:p

    any comments welcome

    Hey

    Thats amazing the amount you have lost before! Well Done!! :clap:
    Slimming World is a great diet, I have lost 2½ stone on it before!!! But you just got to read through the SW part of the forum to see how well other people are doing!!! I'm sure you will do really well! Especially if you still to it 100%

    Good Luck!! :)

    thanks for your reply bexy. i am new to forums full stop so hopefully you will get this lol. well done to you to for your weightloss i really think its a lifelong change and feel much more able to do it. because i am a chocoholic i wasnt eating much food just chocolate and hungry all the time!!! so i think a diet that limits the sweetstuff is needed i stick to food all day and last thing at night a bar of choc needless to say my healthy b's are cereal bars!!! weigh in on sunday i am rrrr nervous. best wishes and good luck to you too !!

    Your welcome!! I have only been a member on this forum about 2 weeks and its totally fab! I used to eat chocolate every day too and now I just save it for special occasions or TOTM or after WI, that's if I fancy it! I don't get cravings for it as much any more!! My really down fall though is savoury bits - totally addict to crisps!!! Though WW do some which are only 4 syns a bag!!! I love them!!! :D Good Luck with WI Sunday!!!

    please could someone give me advice i have included a few week days and weekend diaries i had a total of 95 sins all week 4 green days two red and on ee. istatred last sun weighed at night in at 12 5.......this am after what i would say was a week of no cheating i am 12 3 and a half i think i would weigh this anyway as i amalways lighter in the am. My questions are:
    is it because i have already lost over 8 stones counting cals?
    i have my period will this make a difference?
    am i eating too much??
    is it because i saved my sins till the weekend so i am weighing myself after two days of high sins?
    please help i dont want to have to change back to counting cals again? thanks everyone in advance feeling sorry for mesell:confused::(

    Sorry can't help with any advice on SW but saw your post and really laughed when I saw your list of Mikado Chocolates - I take it they're nice! :)

    You mentioned in your first post about having your excess skin removed. Did you get this on the NHS?

    yeah they are nice and low sins i took them to the pics instead of popcorn.
    i paid for the op myself i would have had to get to 10.5 stones and maintain for a year then weight two years for the op. well i knew that i am in good shape as i do pilates everyday so toned except the skin was awful and i knew how much it weighed i wanted to get it removed without the pressure. plus the fact via nhs they just do the job transform makesure result is astheically pleasing too. i am happy with how i look but need to lose the 7lb i gained at easter eggs plus parties plus me trying to look at increasing my cals to maintain. then i thought i would just change and do sw to try and get to 'target' if i can but as long as i get back under 11 12 i will settle for that size 14 and looking good lol :0) take care and good luck x

    Thanks for the info Moominmama. I can see why you opted to do it yourself. Glad you're pleased with the result.

    Good luck and fingers crossed for you. I would be more than happy to stay a size 14 for the rest of my days. Just to be able to buy clothes from pretty much everywhere rather than just certain shops would make me a happy bunny! xx

    hi bexyboo :)
    congrats on ur loss xx how do i check out your diary?? still getting lost on here lol hence no proper smilies cant find them sometimes :(

    yeah voice is back kids not too happy now i can almost shout hehe i was screwed workwise too i work as a counsellor which i havent been able to do for at least two weeks but hols booked so thats three in total. being so obviously unable to do the job meant i had to be off i normally go in regardless especially since i had to be off in dec after my op........but i think everything happens for a reason.......what i like about sw is the healthy food i have had 9 portions of fruit today!!!!

    i have started drinking 2 ltrs of water a day i used to do this end of last year and i do think its a good idea its just doing it but once i am obsessed i do it :0) it aint ever happend with ironing tho lol

    george the guinea is on day 3 of antibiotics and still has his tilt 3 days leftt but i think by the way he just sits on me and lets me snuggle him like a baby and also he sleeps outside of the little castles on his side whereas simon doesnt.....haha just realised how daft i must sound you should see their cage its as big as the sofa!!!! i just lurve animals!!! i also have three cats 2 dwarf hamsters and a newt!!! plus two kids lol.

    i am soooo looking forward to york defo food shopping and chillin but i wont get the sun that u will on urs lol although last year it was rrr hot.

    diet wise bit of possible balls up this week mon circumstances meant being away from home and hungry leading topizza and syn intake of 46!!! tried to reign it in all week have done on some days but yest i ate salmon which i thought was free and it turned out to have 16 syns in doh so had 26 yest!!! down to ten today and two days to go......i am in the sunday weighers club so i shall see then but going to relax rules on hol regardless and face consequences next week.

    apologies for long reply i have been known to talk hind leg offa a donkey hence why i prob lost voice in the first place lol

    lookin at ur avatar ...do u grow ur own veg???

    best wishes xx
