    Hi Kerry & Welcome

    Ive been doing SW on/off for about 3 years . I lost just over 6st then put just over stone back on.

    I have now restarted classes and trying hard to get back to the target I set myself.
    I would like to get to around 11st ... Ok still heavy for my hight 5'2'' but one I feel happy at & can (hopefully) maintain.

    I can fit comfortable in size 14 at that weight so Id be happy with that.

    Have recently joined this site for that bit extra help & advice .

    All the best for your first week on SW

    You will get there again if thats your goal go for it.
    The biggest size I bought was M&S size 26/28 I spent alot of my life in black thinking it made me look slimmer.
    I was wearing whatever in a shop fit me not what I wanted to wear.
    To be honest I only threw my large sizes out last Xmas I do have one small 'fat bag' containing a top,trews, skirt & photos of me wearing them at my largest as 'that' little reminder.

    May I suggest one thing to you ? Take your measurements now & write them down somewhere. Its good to look back on especially if you get a couple of weeks without a loss (hopefully wont happen) often the inches come off when the lbs dont.

    Good luck for the rest of the week. My main let down is weekends :(

    Morning

    how are you doing so far .I had a quite a good week sticking to SW I do mainly green days & ive been eating loads of fresh fruit this weeek. I usually manage fine Mon - Fri then fall of trach at weekend fingers crossed I will stay more in control this weekend lol .

    When I first started SW I got my 10% off then I just kept reducing that amount by 10% as my own personal mini goals .
    I didn't set a target until about 18 months. This worked for me as I did not want to be chasing a number that was too far in the distance .

    Oh about the measurements I did that myself dont worry they dont do it at SW class !!!

    have a great weekend
