    Hi everyone, so glad i've found this site, I'm in need of some inspiration. I'm trying to decide on which diet to follow, weight watchers or slimming world.
    My friend has asked me to be a bridesmaid in September, and i'd like to lose 3 stone by then, so need to pull my finger out and decide, any advice would be great.:)

    Oh well done! I'm new on here too and I've been doing Slimming World since New Year. I previously tried Weight Watchers but I just couldn't get my head around counting points all day every day. Different strokes for different folks :)

    Hi I'm new what a great site this is glad to be part of it. I've not long had a baby girl and want to get back on the slimming world diet again to get in shape. I've tried different diets before but never managed to keep the weight off I found this diet is a way to continue family meal times as my OH and daughter can eat what I eat causing less disruption to family life.

    Hi I'm another newbie tonight. My Hubby and I joined slimming world last October and it's been going pretty well. I got my 2 1/2 stone sticker last week but have now promptly put on 2 1/2lbs this week. It's only my 3rd gain since joining so trying not to get it all out of proportion but wad bitterly disappointed. I gained 1/2lb at Xmas and 1/2lb 2 weeks ago but that was down to the time of the month and water retention! I lost 3lbs last week but have put 2 1/2lbs of that back on this week and I really don't know why.
