Hello :)

Hi everyone

Nice to meet you all, I decided to join as there seems to be so many friendly folks on here...

I have always been a curvier girl and happy, but I was made redundant in August and am struggling to find a job, so possibly inevitably I have put on weight in the last couple of months, and it's made me bigger than I have ever been. My partner is very sweet and says he hasn't noticed, and he probably hasn't, but I know and it bothers me.

A friend has passed on the Slimming World plan sheets as I can't afford to join, but I feel I need some extra support and advice from people on the plan and in similar situations, and in particular advice on how many syns things are as I don't have access to the calculator. Is there a simple calculation I can do??

I started just over a week ago and lost 3lbs in my first week so am buoyed to keep going :)

Thanks in advance!

Thanks very much! I'm feeling positive reading everyone's successes. This is going to give me focus when the job hunt is getting me down...
Hi Everyone

Im new to slimming world, on my 2nd week, lost 3.5lb in week 1, so guess thats a good start!
Finding it ok, but am mega fussy with food, the norm for me is pasta & dolmio, white bread, loads cheese and chocs!!
Just wondered if anyone could suggest anything that doesnt include weird veg, fish or yucky sauces :(

Hi Miss O!

I have been doing SW for 8 wks now, go to class and use the on-line tools. Thinking I've got the hang of it now so if I can be of any help let me know.

Good luck with your weight loss and job hunting. I know it is harder to diet when there is other things going on in your life that make it stressful. :eek:

Thanks everyone! I think focussing on the plan and losing weight is actually helping me focus rather than just getting depressed over yet another application form.

Miss_Slater have you found the Winter Warmer Recipe thread yet? It's full of yummy sounding food, I made the syn free Cheese and Onion comfort pie last night and it was gorgeous and am making the 12 syn sponge cake today. Go check it out!
