    Hi everyone I'm new yet old to Minimins. I used to post years ago when I started my SW journey but fell out of habit.
    I am now at target and maintaining but like everyone could do with support ideas and new recipes !
    I do go to group still even though I have been at target a year.
    I am also toying with re setting my target another 4-7lbs down.
    I turn 40 in a few months and my husband is taking me to New York so ideally I want to be at my lower end of target rather then exactly at target.
    For health reasons I struggle to lose weight quickly so I will just plod on.
    I hope to contribute a lot more then I used to !

    Welcome back! It's lovely seeing target members. :D It helps to motivate me knowing that people reach it. :)

    Thank you for the welcome. We don't go away until September so I have a while yet.
    I forgot to say I lost two stone in probably 2 years and had my 3 year anniversary of going to sw meetings the other week.
    I stay to class most weeks and it is so important to me to do that as I know I would go off the rails otherwise

    Hello! I am off to join slimming world this evening and my goal is also to lose weight for a trip to New York! I am going for my birthday in November and ideally I would like to lose a stone and a Half by then which I hope will be doable. Do you have any tips for a newbie? X

    Congrats Jaffa Cake...on being a target member. I still go weekly to my group or I'd be on a slippery slope!!
    How wonderful to have a trip to NY to look forward to for your birthday.
    I have an underactive thyroid and weight loss isn't easy for me...I actually set my target a little higher than I had been a few years ago. I reasoned that I was over a certain age and maybe I shouldn't put myself under stress to be so low. I like the 6lbs leeway that target gives us.

    Amazing that you're a target member well done! I've got a couple of stone to get off yet but I'm a slow loser too - welcome back! xx

    Hi there
    I am also new! I used to belong to slimming world in the UK and got to target. Then moved to Canada with my husband and there are no groups here. I could join online but it is not the same as group so hope that I can get some encouragement here? I hope you enjoy your trip to New York it sounds fab!!!
