    Hello from an ex-lurker. I have been registered on here for ages, but not posted 'til now. I've dieted many times before, but always put all the weight back on.
    THIS time I am thinking of it more as a healthy way of eating that will continue when my excess baggage has gone.
    Two years ago I lost 2 stone with the w.w. core plan, but now it's all back.
    So far this time round, I have lost 14 lb. because I was on Metformin (glucophage) for pre-diabetes.
    Now I'm off the tablets and on Slimming World as of August 2nd. I lost 1.5 lb. this week, and I'm enjoying the eating plan.

    Hello!

    Well done on a positive start and attitude - you CAN do it and SW really does work! It really is a change for life, and will help you make healthy and sustained choices for weightloss and beyond.

    So much support here in MiniMins too - keep posting! :D xx

    Hi Jillymeg123. I know the feeling of dismay when all the hard work of dieting is undone so easily and the weight just jumps back to where you think it belongs. I too have just begun SW and I really don't think it's hard work at all. Glad I've discovered it at last. We can really change our eating habits with this one. Good Luck

    I saw you were doing SW and thought it might get more attention here.

    Thanks beekeper. You've done well for a month, hope I can get such good results!
    At least s.w. makes me cook again instead of lazy t.v. dinners for one!

    sorry to be a pain but how do I change my username? It should be just jillymeg, and I can't find how to change it.
