  1. Hi, my names steph, I'm 22 and need to lose about 3 stone- am setting slimming world tomorrow due to a meltdown in the dressing room finally making me realise I need to change! I've been looking at the menus and types of food and think I'll be able to stick at it, my only problem is I have a horrible addiction to red bull!! I know it's bad for me and this is probably what has put me the weight on! Is there anything else I can try that will give the caffeine kick I need??

    How about black coffee?! or diet coke?!
    Yes red bull is full of sugar so that's prob got a lot of syns in it! are you joining a group or doing it online?!
  3. I'm going to the group as I need the motivation, how are you finding it so far? X

    Yeah sugar free is syn free but it would be a good idea to wean yourself off them as it's not the best thing to be drinking a lot of x
  7. Yea I'm wanting to cut them out completely but think the sugar free ones will give me the kick I need, thanks x

  9. What do you need this "kick" for? Are you sure you need it?
  10. I don't know if I do need it or if it's just my head going 'you need redbull' haha, xx

    I used to drink quite a few full sugar fizzy drinks. I weaned myself off I now only occasionally have the odd can of diet coke. you will get used to living without them honestly :)
  13. Well am trying to go to sugar free cordial it's just hard when am at work and all I want it a fizzy drink/redbull! I have hardly no willpower think finding out my actual weight tonight will make me realise more hahah xx
  14. Also do you have to stick to a calorie amount each day? Xx

    Yesterday I just posted about Tastebuds changing, I used to love a Mountain Dew bottle on days where I was feeling exhausted,now I know I couldn't bare to drink the stuff as the lure of sugar has gone. Definitely give diet a try but also ensure you are actually hydrated as if you're not then it can make you feel crappy. I believe SW recommend 2 litres of fluid a day, this is a lot for some people tho but you could try and drink more sugar free cordial alternated with glasses of water?

    good luck on your journey, you'll get loads of advice on here x
