    Hi everyone

    My name is Lexie, I am 34, married with a 4 year old son. I have been on WW on & off for years with limited success so decided that I need to do this once & for all. Did SW about 10 years ago & lost 3 stone so thought I would give it a try & joined a group on Wednesday night. Am a little worried as feel as though I am eating too much & not correctly (did a naughty WI last night & have supposedly gained 1lb - have now made hubby hide the scales in his car to stop me getting on them). Am following extra easy & it seems just that too easy...... Anyone else felt the same & been pleasantly surprised at WI?

    I was the same for about the first month, couldn't work out how the plan worked, how I was losing weight and never feeling hungry! Stick with it! You may be pleasantly surprised by your first WI!:)

    I am still amazed how much I can eat, I'm just starting week 3 and have lost 11lb following EE. Occasionally I'll have a green or red, but find it easier to EE. It's so bizarre to me that you can basically pig out on free foods and still lose weight, but it's obviously working as I got slimmer of the week on my second WI losing 7lb!
