    Hi everyone

    Although I've been an (inactive) Minimins member for a while I'm new to WW. I've signed up for online membership today after years and years and years of doing Slimming World on and off. I know SW inside out so to change to WW is going to be a bit strange, but as I'm still very overweight I thought maybe I should try something new.

    If anyone has any tips or advice they'd be very welcome, as would a bit of a shove to get me and keep me on track :)

    Sara :)

    hi sara

    all the best for your weight loss journey. propoints is great and works but my advice is to track EVERYTHING, even if you are out scribble it down on a piece of paper so you do not miss anything!

    Hi, I've just swapped this week too. I felt that perhaps I knew SW too well and needed a change.
    I'm finding it less difficult than I expected to switch, just make sure you write everything down and you can't go go wrong. No A, B, syns, 1/3 superfree to think about!

    Good luck xx

    I have floated between sw and ww for the last few years but have stuck with new pro points since jan as it's more realistic! Love it and have found that having portion control is helping my stomach to shrink :)

    Thats what I want to hear! :) Portion control is my biggest downfall as my food intake is pretty healthy. But I love food & during childhood I had to clear my plate at every meal so now I'm having to change my mindset. :(

    Me too!! I find it hard when looking after my nephew to stop insisting he does the same. Weighing and actually paying attention to portions is the only downside to ww but more realistic than sw. I could've eaten (and did!) two steaks at a time- my oh commented on how that was wrong and I argued about how it was 'free'. Oh the shame!

    Thanks everyone, glad to see there are some other ex-SW'ers about too. I'm going to spend the evening trying to work my way around the website so I can find out what I'm actually meant to be eating, and get myself a Tesco order done.

    Portion control sounds scary!! I too am of the "well its free" mentality and will eat huuuge bowls of pasta so I can see this being a steep learning curve lol!

    Are the ww jars good then? I remember donkey's years ago trying a tomato and garlic one that was really horrible. I haven't bought one since
    I can't live on frozen ww ready meals forever so need to branch out soon!
