Hello from Barbados


New Member
Hello and happy new year. A friend introduced me to Slimming World at work a few years back and some of us did it as a group. I have sort of followed it off and on and each time I have lost weight but am unable to stick with it. I am determined to do better and am thinking about joining SW online but not sure how well that will work out with me based in Barbados.

I would be interested to hear from anyone who has done it from overseas. I have been able to work out Syns based on what I can find online but it is challenging.

Hi, Welcome!
I used to do Slimming World and did well the times I did it.
I now do calorie counting using MyFitnessPal which I prefer now.
But I still do know the SlimmingWorld plan to an extent.
The online could be good for you as you can input foods the nutritional values etc and it works out any syns etc…
You could always try it for a while and see how you go?
As a rule it used to be 1 syn per 20 calories but that was if there were no ‘free food content in it?’ I think 🤔
Good luck either way and let us know how it goes if you try…
It’s been quiet on this forum for a while, hopefully people will come back 🤞
But I plan on starting another diary to make myself accountable for my weight loss efforts this year!
Hopefully I can lose the pounds ‘again’! And keep them off this time 🤞
