Hi I'm new (sorry!)

Discussion in 'Slimming World' started by Bohemian Raspberry, 29 December 2009.

  1. Hello Slimming World-ers :wavey:
    I’m new to the site, and more or less new to Slimming World itself. I’ve been flirting (badly, as usual) with the plan since I joined at the beginning of December. But with the holidays, flu and generally not having my head in the right place, I haven’t really been on the plan. I gained 1/2lb on my first week and miraculously lost 2lbs this week.
    My consultant’s talk was inspiring last night. She was talking about approaching the plan as if total newbie’s-she’s even giving the new member talk again next Monday. I felt very inspired, so, whilst most members of my group are starting from scratch next Monday, Friday the 1st will be my week one, day one.
    My initial goal is to get to my club 10 weight-9stone 4lbs, after that I’ll see how I feel. Ideally, I’d like to achieve this by March. I don’t think that’s being too unrealistic!
    Anyways, just thought I’d say hello I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone. And I’m looking forward to a slimmer New Year! :D

    Welcome BR and all the other newbies!
    Bit of advice from a very old school SW'er - don't worry about eating too much, if it's free and you are hungry, then eat it!
    No question is silly, it's probably been asked before and we've probably asked it in the past!
    Remember, your consultant is always available if you are struggling or need help.
    Check syn values before you eat, not after!
    Oh, and good luck - SW really is great :)
