    Hiya, I'm a total newbie. I started again on slimming world a week ago and have already lost 4lb.

    I joined slimming world online in May having previously had good loses with WW. Got bored of WW and as my Mum has done well on SW thought I would give it a go. I'm just doing it online at the mo and thinking if I get bored and hit a plateau I can always keep classes "in hand". My head in in the zone so far so just hoping it stays there.

    I want to get back into a size 16 dress by September for a friends wedding to save me from having to buy a new outfit:)

    Also doing SW from home - although I did go to the group in the past.

    PLaces likes this are a big help if you shout around what you would like to do - keeps me on the straight and narrow anyway!

    I'm a size 18 - 20 now (it's been creeping up)

    I reckon I'm going to need to lose a stone and a half at the very minimum to get into the dress by mid September so that is my first target.

    I then want to be a couple of lb under 13 stone by Christmas to give myself room in case I put a pound or two on, and then get back on it in January. I would like to be 12.7 or less by the time I go on holiday in February.

    I'll reassess when I get to 12.7 and set myself a new target.

    How about you kymsey? What are you looking to lose? Have you set yourself any targets?

    Once I start losing I get som impatient to lose more quickly :-(

    Hi ponytails, I would like to lose at least 2 1/2 stone by Xmas and maybe more, do you think this is possible? X

    Definitely. I made a little spreadsheet for my planned weight loss with dates, how much I hope to lose each week and what my weight will be if I hit target. I have put 1 or 2 lb most weeks, with a few sts and based on that I have planned for a loss of 2.5 stones between now and Christmas :)

    Hi Kymsey. Sorry I wasn't around on Friday. My little dog died overnight Thursday night/Friday morning so my head was all over the place :'(

    Despite that I didn't use it as an excuse to binge on cake which would have been my normal response. I did manage to weigh myself on Friday despite everything and I'm pleased to report 3lb off. That takes me to my half stone off :)

    Thanks. Had a horrible weekend. I have decided to get another rescue dog so looking at all the poor doggies needing homes is giving me something to concentrate on. OH thinks it's too soon but I need a doggie in my life <3

    Yes you do you need something to focus on, something to look forward to and a rescue dog is a lovely thing to have. X
