    Hey everyone!

    Never been part of a forum before haha, this one seems so friendly I couldn't pass up the chance! :) I'm a student at university so this will be a challenge, I'm not a big drinker at all though so that helps... I'm currently 12st 8lb and I'd like to be 10st by my graduation in July, and my friend recommended Slimming World to me :) I literally started on Thursday so any advice is welcome, it's gonna be a learning curve but I can't wait to lose this weight and get my confidence back! :D :D :D xx

    Good luck on your diet :) SW is a good diet, if you plan your meals you will probably save some cash too!

    Thanks guys! It's looking like it could be pretty cost effective, I love cooking too so I don't mind making things from scratch! Currently tucking into a baked potato with tuna, sweetcorn and fat-free fromage frais with a side salad... can't believe this is free on EE!! :D

    Mmm it was! Dreading Mondays weigh in though but fingers crossed, not started any classes yet as trying it out first but fingers crossed for a loss! Does anyone have any favourite recipes I should be trying? :)

    Hi sellierose, I'm new too! I'm in my 4th week of slimming world and so far find it easier than other diets I've tried. Slimming world chips or roast potatoes are my faves and I make good use of eggs and low fat supernoodles being free food as well lol. Good luck!

    Hi justjaybel! :) ooo, I didn't know that low fat supernoodles were free! :D it's sad that I'm excited about that haha. The chips were lovely, just needed a little more browning in the oven I think. Made SW crisps too yesterday, in the microwave! They're so nice and apparently free too if you don't overindulge :) next stop will have to be SW roasties :p good luck to you too!! x

    Hi Sellierose

    I just started SW a week and loving it so far, was on Atkins for a long time so its such a treat to be able to eat unlimited fruit and veg!

    Hey Polly, it's amazing isn't it! I love the freedom you get... I lost 3lb on my first weigh in but hopefully that wasn't beginner's luck! :p

    I'm sure it wasn't, my losses will be slower as I was previously doing Atkins so I didn't get that first week boost, but I'm happy with the plan.
