    Hi all!
    I have just found this forum after doing a search on a SW question.
    But first......
    I'm 29 and suffered with my weight for as long as I can remember, though was a scarily thin child naturally.
    I have had very many ups and downs with my weight (mainly ups - of the scale's needle) and have decided it's about time to deal with it.
    I'm not actually attending SW classes; I have just won this years books on eBay, and with a home-made colourful progress chart and an incredibly supportive partner, I'm making a start.
    I have a loooooong way to go so you may be stuck with me for some time.

    Anyway, to my question - do the amount of daily SW syns depend on your weight or is it generic 5-15 for everyone?

    Thanks all and look forward to making friends with you all

    Hi Rachel

    Well over all I'm hoping to get about 6 stone off, but thats HUGE to me to think of as a whole, so just taking it in small steps.
    I have 3 goals so far on my chart; 10%, BMI of 30 (so no longer considered obese) and then 4st off. It's gonna take time, but I guess it's a life style as opposed to just a 'diet'.

    Thanks for your best wishes, looking forward to chatting with everyone more.

    PS - 4lb to go?! that's fab well done!!
