    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!!

    Rach x

    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.

    This may sound like abit of a silly question, but can you chop and change between orignial and green?? Ive read the SW food optimising book but i think i missed that part!! Today i am having a "green day" but what happens when i fancy a roast dinner??

    I dont think im entirely clued up about it!!!
