Hi - I'm New! Does SW *really* work??

Hi there :D
I joined a Slimming World group last Thursday after struggling with my weight for ages. I had a baby 9 months ago and have really piled on the pounds. I'm 2 st heavier than when I fell pregnant and I was over weight anyway :eek:

Anyway I've just found you all. I am really enjoying the SW plan but am worried that either a) I'm not following it properly or b) it won't work! Because I am eating such nice things.

It's good to have read some of your tips on here so far. Anyway just wanted to introduce myself and join in your group!

Hello & welcome. Yes SW really does work as long as you stick to the plan! Check out people's threads to see how much has been lost. We're also very good for tips and a motivation boost whenever you need it. Good luck.

Welcome.. yes it works.. and yes you can eat nice things .. if you are worried you can post a food diary on here.. there is a sticky thread for that and people can check how you are doing.. stay focused and good luck xx:D
Yes, it works!
I do agree with you, at first you do wonder how it can work with all the food you can eat!
Like a post earlier says, just read how other people have progressed and it will inspire you, also there are loads of knowledgeable people on here, so if you have any questions just ask and you will get good advice.

Good luck

Welcome and yup it really works, we're all proof that it does x
Thankyou everyone :) It's really good to see all your tickers, some of you have such amazing weight losses!
I went to a group yesterday as I can't make my normal one this week for my first proper weigh in (it's my anniversary on thursday, 4 years just like you, nannydi, :), and he's taking me for a slap up meal! oops!!) Anyway weighed in at the other group and in 4 days I've already lost 2.5lbs! I was in total shock!

I love Green days although yesterday and today I'm on Red. I'm a real carb lover so can see Green being my way ahead with the occassional red so I can have bacon, another favourite.

I have a quick question about the healthy extras, I had some ryvitas yesterday and in my FO book it listed 4 dark rye ryvitas as 1 HE but it also lists 2 dark rye ryvitas as 1 HE. Bit confused!!

I think where it lists 2 different amounts for the same thing, the lower amount makes it a speed food where as the higher amount is just a normal HE.

If it says you can have 4 then have 4! If you haven't had any other HEB's then it would just count as 2 rather than 1
