Hello from a SW newbie!

#1
Hi there everyone!

This is my 2nd day of SW and so far finding it fab, for lunch my daughter (1) and i had the egg, chips and beans!

I love potatos and pasta, and after searching through lots of different diets (and being disapointed with what i could and couldnt eat!!) a couple of friends recommended me "slimming world" so i could still eat the things i love but learn to lose weight at the same time.

I was wondering what excersize everyone does? Im finding it hard to do something that fits into my daily routine with the little one. I have a wii fit and when OH gets back from work i'll ask him to set it all up again as it hasnt been used in a while!!!

Looking forward to chatting with you all and getting lots of advise and tips!!

Welcome to SW!

Walking is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise in, and it still counts as exercise! I use a site called 'walk jog run', which lets you map out your route and then works out how many calories you'd burn. I know SW doesn't work on calories, but it's always nice to see that the walk round the village burns 370 calories!

Welcome to sw hun :)
I love green days too as i love my potatoes and pasta etc.
Exercise i do is i have an exercise bike, wii fit and other fitness games plus fitness dvds.
With you having a young child, even a walk to the shops with the buggy or a run round the park is all good body magic.

fab, thank you!!! EE sounds great lol!!

Anyone know why i cant upload a picture to my avatar?
I think you need 50 posts before you can alter things lol.
I love ee for that reason, also when i want things like spag bol or cottage pie it means i can have tons of mince and pasta and potatoes and its all freeeeeeeee :p
