Hello everyone,

My name's Dave and I'm currently food optimising with Slimming World.

I've followed the diet once before and lost nearly 3st but I then left the group thinking I could do it alone, sadly I couldn't and ended up putting all the weight back on plus more.

I started at the gym in November last year thinking I'd shift some weight that way, but all the exercise just made me even hungrier and I just ended up eating more.

I rejoined Slimming World last week and slipped straight back into it, I lost 3lb at my first weigh in although I probably over did it a little on my alcohol consumption over the weekend so maybe could have lost more.

I'm still going gym 3 times a week and really can't wait to lose more weight. I suffer from back problems and the extra bulk doesn't help.

My wife pointed this forum out to me and it looks great, I've spent all morning reading through some of the posts. I'm off out into the garden now for a bbq with home made burgers ideal for Slimming World. :eat:
