    Hi all, just joined tonight, great site!

    I give up the fags 2nd Feb 09 and have gained 7lbs. My own fault though, eating terrible! I am worried if i don't do something now i will gain even more.

    I am not that overweight but i hope you will all still give me advice. Starting on Monday so wish me luck.

    My mom attends a slimming world group so i have all the books ready, just trying to get my head round the diet, and what to buy from the supermarket, so far, pasta,rice,potatoes and fruit! haha

    Does anyone think there is a certain book i need to buy?

    I will weigh monday morning to see how much more i have gained :(

    Thanks Lucie xx;)

    If your Mum has all the books you should be ok - it explains the diet and what you need to know. I started this thread to explain the diet to newbies.

    Good luck on your Slimming World journey.

    Welcome Lucie!

    Congratulations on succesfully quitting smoking- that was defo the most important health decision- your 2nd most important is joining SW!
    In additin to the books and help on this site, there is a really good article on quitting smoking while on SW on their website- just in case this is still an issue. Your Mum will have the password to access the website and I am sure if you buy her some smash, she will let you have it!

    Good luck, mate

    Keep at it mate, you will feel tons better once you have been off the cigs for a few months and wont even miss them.

    The smell of cig smoke now makes me heave and i used to smoke at least 20 a day for 13 years.

    Unfortunately I still smoke :( but I figure I can do one thing at a time and my weight is my biggest obstacle at the moment, but hopefully when the time comes I'll get just as much support to quit smoking as I have in loosing weight :D
