    Hello all,

    I am new to the forum, but not new to SW. The first time I ever tried SW it was just original days, a kind of "Low carb" diet, there were no green days!

    I have been back and forth ever since. The most I ever lost with SW was 2st 10lb.

    The most I have ever lost altogether was 4 st, 1lb, and it was on my own, "healthy eating" and lots of walking.

    But I have always regained all the weight so I am back to start over.

    I am running the Race For Life in June and really would like to lose at least a couple of stone by then. I think with exercise this is acheivable, but I'll need some help guys!!! :)

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Bit peed off tis morning as I jumped on the scales (slap, I know I shouldn't have!) and I seem to have gained 2lb since my first weigh in day on Thursday!

    I have been really good and not deviated from the plan (I'm an old hand, so I know I have been doing it correctly and have been checking book for any changes). I am gutted! :cry:

    I'm surprised everyone's not shouted at you....

    Don't weigh yourself any other time than WI time!!!

    :giggle:

    It's never an accurate reading. The body is weird and what it says today is most likely not what it will say on Thursday.

    Stick with it. Don't get disheartened. It will work for you if you're doing it right :)
