Hi all...

Hello everyone, I'm Sarah.
I've been going to Slimming World for 20 weeks now.
Lost 40lb so far - Woo hoo!:D
39lb still to go - Boo hoo!:cry:

I'm still amazed that the weight I've been carrying for so long is coming off;
I'm still a little bit scared that it'll slow down or stop;
So I still need all the encouragement I can get!
Just taking it all week by week.

And now I've found this site, which looks as though it can add to my weekly encouragement - which is great. But I don't really know how to use it.

Oh, and how do I put my SW stars on? And how do I get a decent avatar?
Any advice gratefully received!

Thank you

Hello! Welcome to the forums

Firstly, congratulations on your loss, that's incredible! I worry a lot that I'm going to slow down, so I try to shake my diet up a bit every once in a while and try eating different things. This week I'm having more Scanbran and super speed foods and next week I might try more red days.

Look forward to seeing you around and good luck with your weight loss :D

Thanks, everyone.

This is a really encouraging place to be.

Now I'm doing my best to spread the encouragement around: we're all doing so well, that even when we have a bit of a blip, we know we can do it really, don't we?

40 lbs is the same as me so far and I started 18 weeks ago. Losing about 1% of your weight per week is spot on, well done!

I have the same fears about when to stop and how to maintain a stable comfortable weight. The forum helps a lot. Good luck!

Hi Sarah, just popping by to say hi :) you lost 40 pounds in 20 weeks? That's incredible, well done!!
S: 17st13lb C: 13st6.5lb G: 11st0lb BMI: 31.4 Loss: 4st6.5lb(24.9%)
Thanks everyone. That loss doesn't feel all that quick at the time, when you come across people at Group with losses of 3.5, 4, 5...
But to maintain an average of 2 a week for a whole 20 weeks is pretty good, I think.
Next target is to keep the average on at least 1.5 a week until Christmas. If I can average a pound a week after that, I'll be Slim Jim by Spring!

(And yes, I did see those flying pigs just then. Didn't you?)
