    Hi Kymsey, I'm the same as you! Last week I decided to move over to SF and I think it was the right move. I found SW a little tedious at times and I just couldn't be bothered to cook. The great thing about SF is that it is straight forward. I just have ready meals for dinner!
    I will definatley go back to some sort of slimming world plan but it will probably be when I am close to goal.
    The best advice I can give you is carry water around! I find that if I am feeling a bit peckish I can have some water and then feel fine because I am keeping my SW weigh in date, I had to weigh myself 2 days after starting and I had lost 4lbs already! You definately get a boost and you'll probably lose around 2-3lbs a week.
    I hope that help!
    P.S. You probably would have noticed that this board isn't as full as SW but don't worry-I am always lurking!

    xx

    hi kimsey,
    congrats on ur loss so far.
    i agree, slimfast is so easy to follow cos its all set out for you, you can even buy the snacks, altho i usually try and stick to fruit cos once i get a taste of crisps or choc i can't stop :)
    all slimfast stuff is on 3 for 2 in Boots right now.
    let us know how ur getting on!

    Hi Kimsey, i don't really have any advice other than drink plenty of water and im sure someone else must have mentioned that here. I just wanted to say Welcome to the SF boards and good luck on your new diet.

    I did have a bit of a slip up on Friday and had a whole pizza to myself! But before and after that I have been 100%!
    I was quite the poster on the SW forum! I thought I would switch to this one as this website is so good!
    BTW, Boots has got the powders on 3 for 2 ATM!

    Wow! You've only got 27lbs to go! I think you would easily lose it by July! Just keep it up, stick to it 100% and tell us if you have any problems - I'm sure we would be able to help. Keep it going girl!

    YOU CAN DO IT!
