    Hi Laura,

    Welcome to Minimins and to SW. You will find loads of support here and hopefully you will love SW. I have really enjoyed my first 6 months here and hope that I will continue to follow SW when I get to target as it doesn't feel like a diet, just a way of life.

    Good luck and keep posting.

    Welcome hunny, I havent been here long myself, and the support so far has been fantastic - no question is too daft, and there are ladies and gents on here with incredible SW knowledge!!

    I havent done sw before, but have done ww, and i can already tell that sw is the plan for me, I love food, and i have a big appetite, thats not going to change, what is going to change through sw is what i eat and how i eat it, thats all - its fab - looking forward to seeing how you get on x

    Hi Laura
    Just discovered this Minimins site and thought I'd join cos I started SW last Wednesday (did it before about 3 years ago and lost the weight but put it back on cos stopped going to meetings - won't make that mistake again this time!). Trying Extra Easy for the first time, hope I'm doing it right cos I seem to be eating loads!

    Scouser, I feel like I'm eating loads too, but I had a good loss my first week, so that reassured me that I'm following the ee plan fine :)

    Hi Laura, good luck on your journey!

    You never get used to how much you can eat on SW... I never have, anyway. After so long making all the wrong choices the right ones seem kind of crazy sometimes. I'll quite often sit down to my tea and have to say out loud, this is diet food????!!! because I can barely believe it :D

    To Lorraine, Scouser, Who la hoop (great name !) and Laura - you CAN eat plenty on EE and still lose - I do (I didn't get to this size by eating like a sparrow.....!). So eat away, happy cooking and good luck. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have :)

    Just had my lunch which was gorgeous home made soup, I got the recipe from the sw website (which is so fab, full of great ideas for meals). My first weigh in is Wednesday morning so I'll report back and let you know how I get on. Can't wait, my jeans feel a bit less tight already - that's probably cos I've not had any bread or junk food. Bye for now everyone.

    Sadly I'm useless at these things and I think I managed one post? I do have a blog, I think I managed five posts... Yep, I'm shamed now. Possibly shamed into updating it PMSL
