hi, :wavey:

i've been reading all of your threads for just over a month and have found it quite inspiring, so much so that i decided to give slimming world ANOTHER try....it's 6th time lucky for me! i know the diet inside out and can do well on it, but i really struggle with it long term.

i joined 4 weeks ago and i've got my 4th weigh-in today (thurs) ...have lost 8.5 pounds in 3 weeks.

...i really hope i can do it this time! and having the extra support on here will help me.

Good luck Karen. I've just had my 4th WI and so far I'm really enjoying SW. I've never tried it before - have done WW many times but always give up after a short while (apart from once when I lost 42 pounds but the leader was inspiring - then she left and so did I:()

Can I ask why you struggle long-term with the diet? I really want to lose weight this time, so if I can avoid the danger periods, I might actually succeed for once.

I'm really glad I found this forum as everyone is really friendly and helpful.:)
Thats a great weight loss! Get yourself a ticker and put it in your signature, it really helps me.

force ten - i struggle long term because i really beat myself up over simple things like staying the same weight when i've stuck to it 100%...then i lose the plot and gorge on pies! then return to class the next week with a gain. then i eat more pies! then i stop going to class as i get too embarassed and disheartened.

this time i am determined to do it though!

Ah I see. Our class leader is trying to motivate a couple of ladies who have stuck at the same weight even though they kept to the diet. She's suggesting eating more fruit and veg and doing more exercise - fairly obvious really, I suppose. She's good at emailing and phoning up and also answering questions if I phone her during the week, so I'm hopeful I can keep going with this class as I plan to be going to it for at least a year:)
