    I agree! Very quiet around here today - do you all have lives outside of Minimins??!!!

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?

    Not being able to wear the dress I'd bought for good friends' wedding last September and not being happy with the 'old' clothes I had to buy just so I had something!

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?

    Planning what to eat as opposed to eating on the hop, and therefore making 'bad' food choices!

    3. How has SW changed your life?

    I feel healthier, happier and more energetic than I have for a long time!

    4. What's your exercise of choice?

    Just started running and surprisingly enjoy it! Love swimming too and when I get to target I'll start horse-riding again - can't wait!

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?

    SW KFC chicken with a lovely big salad

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?

    Discovered it last night - Mullerlight with blueberries and 3 x mini M&S Belgium meringues crumbled over (1.5 syns)

    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?

    Manicure - love to look after my nails - I have more nail varnishes in the fridge than food sometimes!

    8. What's your favourite bodywash/gel/soap?

    I'm a big Elemis and Philosophy fan

    9. What's your favourite body lotion/butter?

    Always go back to Palmers Cocoa Butter

    10. What do you do to celebrate each milestone loss? (i.e. every half stone or stone or whatever you decide)

    OH buys me a Pandora charm for my bracelet for every half stone I lose and when I get to target, both OH and the parents have said they'll treat me to a new wardrobe!

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?

    Seeing my picture from my brother's wedding in August 2008 - i was clearly twice the size of anyone else and was absolutely disgusted with myself.

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?

    Activity - as the energy levels have increased so has the activity - i've gone from just existing to living and sometimes have to remind myself just how good it feels.

    3. How has SW changed your life?

    More energy, more confidence, more "get up and go". I can do so much now that I haven't been able to do before - both in terms of activity and in just general day to day activities.

    4. What's your exercise of choice?

    Excercise? Whats that? Activity is how i view it -and walking is my activity of choice - i'll walk up to 9 miles a day at weekends, and a mile or two most evenings.

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?

    Ohhhh... steak and steamed veg? quorn chilli? Or just a good full grill.

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?

    Low syn - walkers french fries. or when doing green days - suishi. Free - frozen pineapple or frozen muller lights.

    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?

    I don't really have a pamper routine. but just like to feel good in myself (going back to proving i'm alive from time to time - just (normally) by doing something crazy).

    Questions 8/9 not relevant to me, so snipped.

    10. What do you do to celebrate each milestone loss? (i.e. every half stone or stone or whatever you decide)

    I've set targets for myself all the way along...

    4st loss - took out a loan to replace my car with the money i was saving from not eating takeaways and junk all the time
    8st loss - a day off plan (that wasn't that far off plan in the end)
    10st loss - a new watch - i'd been wearing my old one since i was 16 - i turned 36 this year).
    the next celebration will be for getting this far and hopefully to target (14st1.5lb loss) by end of July - I'm jumping out of a plane for the NSPCC - anyone wishing to sponsor/donate - please see link below - every little helps).

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?
    I started gaining weight after my wedding. I'm not proud but I went on the Cambridge diet to lose just under 2st before the big day and as soon as I came off it I put on three!!! I'd done SW and lost weight in the past but I'd never been really heavy, only needing to lose 10lbs - 1st at a time but for the first time I actually felt *fat* and it was not a good feeling. I decided on an impulse one morning to join a group and I searched the SW website for a group that was running that day because I had to start NOW! It turned out that the group was fabulous and lively. I was invited by a group of ladies to join them for coffee after class and that was it!

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?
    I've cut out all the junk and stopped cooking with great big hunks of butter and cheese lol. I also make time for each meal, not eating on the go and savour every mouthful. Oh and I walk everywhere now!


    3. How has SW changed your life?
    I feel totally in control of my diet and I feel so happy and content in the knowledge that I'm feeding my body good, healthy, nutritious food. I can also wear nice clothes and not feel self conscious about my body. Next stop, bikini!!!

    4. What's your exercise of choice?
    I walk everywhere and dance whenever the opportunity come up. I go out dancing with friends regularly, armed with my bottle of water. I also take salsa classes

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?
    Rice and anything, fish, vegetables, curries etc. As long as there's a serving of rice on the plate, it's all good :D

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?
    Options hot chocolate - 2 syns
    Cadbury's highlight mousse - 3 syns
    2% Greek yogurt with 2 tsp honey - 2.5 syns


    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?
    Long luxurious baths with a face mask, glass of ice cold lemonade (diet) and a nice book. Mmmmmm

    8. What's your favourite bodywash/gel/soap?
    Lush Honey I washed The Kids soap or happy hippy shower gel!


    9. What's your favourite body lotion/butter?
    Lush Dream Cream

    10. What do you do to celebrate each milestone loss? (i.e. every half stone or stone or whatever you decide)
    I've been treating myself to a spa session for each half stone loss. So far I've had a facial, full body exfoliation, manicure, pedicure & massage!

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?
    Well over the last 3 years or so I have slowly been gaining weight (and dress sizes), I decided that I needed to do something about it. A friend of mine is on SW and a while ago her facebook status was about her size 12 jeans falling down. She used to be soooo much bigger.

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?

    Only started last week so Im not sure yet. It will probably be exercising or not snacking on biscuits, or not taking the car out so much.

    3. How has SW changed your life?

    Not a lot yet, but its early days.

    4. What's your exercise of choice?

    Ive always enjoyed walking everywhere. Its always been a case with me, if its within walking distance I'll walk. Ive also taken up running which I enjoy

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?

    Dont know yet, but Im buying a recipe book at my next meeting so will hopefully find out then. But it will probably be pasta based as I love love love pasta.

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?

    At the moment I only eat apples or mullerlights for a treat so I dont know

    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?
    Once a week (usually a Sunday) I have a bath (sometimes by candlelight with my chillout CD on - hubby calls it hippie music), do a facemask, shave my legs, deep condition my hair.


    8. What's your favourite bodywash/gel/soap?

    I really like the original source ones. Especially the lemon or the lime, even better when they are mixed together mmmmmmm smells like sweets.

    9. What's your favourite body lotion/butter?

    I use a variety, right now its Johnsons holiday skin.

    10. What do you do to celebrate each milestone loss? (i.e. every half stone or stone or whatever you decide)

    Havent thought about it yet as its early days, but when I can fit into smaller clothes Im looking forward to going on a shopping spree. That will be my overall celebration, but within each one I havent decided, I will keep an eye on this thread for ideas.

    I right enjoyed answering those questions. :)

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?
    The doctor told me that he wouldn't let me stay on my pill (the only one I'm allowed due to my DVT) if I didn't lose some weight, then my husband couldn't lift me out of the bath anymore :( , then my friend Sarah started SW and lost lots and said it was so easy. So I decided I'd follow!

    I cut out oils and I've upped my activity.

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?

    I'd lost 6 stone in 2006/7 but since moving to America at the end of 2008 I've regained about 4 stone of it. I have a wardrobe of gorgeous clothes--my favourite shop in the UK was Monsoon and I have TONS of their stuff--but I just can't fit in it now. I want to be sassy and stylish again.

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?

    Making sensible choices when we eat out. Eating out is such a way of life over here. We actually eat out very little compared to most people, but I reckon that we eat out at least once or twice a week. My mindset (being English) was (and still is to a certain extent) that eating out is a treat and therefore I'm justified in choosing the most indulgent thing on the menu. That's bad news for diets. But since getting back on SW I've discovered that I can make healthy choices when we eat out and it still tastes fantastic and I don't feel deprived. We eat regularly at a local deli, and I've swapped their apple and blue cheese sandwich (which is fried, and comes with a heap of crisps) for their grilled lentil burger with potato salad. Yes, there are still syns, but nowhere near as many as my previous choice. On Thursday we had lunch at a local Mexican. I'd normally have had bean burrito and cheese enchilada. Horrifically caloric. Instead I had huevos rancheros with refried beans and mexican rice--again, a much more SW friendly option. And on Friday we met a friend at my favourite local restaurant. I usually have their Hot Brown (an amazing concoction of toast, turkey, bacon, and tomato, smothered in heavy cream and cheese sauce) but instead I had grilled lemon chicken with veggies and mashed potato. It felt great to be in control. This coming weekend we're going to a friend's wedding (9 hours drive away...) so I'll have very little control over the menu for at least two meals (the rehearsal dinner and the wedding breakfast) but I know I can make healthier choices. I'm hoping I can continue to tell myself that it's the occasion and the company of friends that matters, not what I eat.

    3. How has SW changed your life?

    It's put me back in control. For the first time in a long time I don't feel anxious about food. That's a good feeling.

    4. What's your exercise of choice?

    I haven't managed to get into a good regime yet. When I'm on campus, I do a lot of walking around naturally, and am usually toting a heavy backpack of textbooks, but now that I'm off over the summer there's a temptation to lounge around. I love walking, but it's actually very hard to walk anywhere here unless you want to take your life into your hands. There's a Zumba class in a local church that I want to try (it's on Monday mornings) but I need to figure out whether I need to join their gym to go to the class (and at $90 a month that's not an option...)

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?

    I have so many! Presently, my veggie chocolate chili with a big pile of rice. I make a vat of it every week, and freeze it in portions. It's scrummy.

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?

    Is 5 syns low syn? If so, then Skinny Cow Ice Cream Lollies--any variety. Actually, scrap that, my favourite is a Starbucks chai tea latte with non-fat milk (and I use a HEA for the milk). 2 syns of bliss.

    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?

    I buy yarn and craft supplies! And, when I'm slimmer--CLOTHES!

    8. What's your favourite bodywash/gel/soap?

    I love anything from Lush. We have a Lush concession in our local Macy's but I was seriously shocked at the price inflation. $20 for a block of soap that would be maybe 3/4 pounds in the UK. My very sweet MIL bought me three Lush soaps for Christmas, I'm keeping them in the freezer and saving them for special occasions. I used to love their Gratuitous Violets soap--they need to bring it back just for me! I also love their Flying Fox shower gel and their entire Karma range. On an everyday basis, though, I use Soap & Glory's Clean On Me shower cream.

    9. What's your favourite body lotion/butter?

    Again, anything from Lush. Or Soap & Glory. Or Molton Brown but THAT is a serious investment over here.

    10. What do you do to celebrate each milestone loss? (i.e. every half stone or stone or whatever you decide)

    Haven't got that far yet--although I did celebrate my half stone on Saturday so you could say that I celebrated by buying that delicious yarn from the yarn festival, I suppose I should think of something tangible that I can work towards with each half stone...decisions, decisions...

    Thanks for this poll, Honeyoc, it's been fun!

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?

    I went through a really crap time during my second year of university and piled two stone on. I had never been thin but I got so big that I was miserable so when it came to the end of that academic year I made the changes I needed to with university and just life in general so I could move forward in a positive way. I joined SW then as it was a last resort to sort my weight out - had never even considered a weight loss programme before but now I am devoted!! I graduate in two months and am soooooooo much happier - party thanks to SW :D

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?

    I understand what I am eating and I am a MUCh better cook! I didn't cook much before SW and now I consider myself rather good in the kitchen.

    3. How has SW changed your life?

    I feel a million times better within myself, far more confident and overall just feel in control which before SW I didn't at all.

    4. What's your exercise of choice?

    Swimming! With my friend so we can talk whilst swimming and then have a yummy sw feast after - totally the best reward!!

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?

    I don't know if I can choose!! As of tonight the roast dinner that myself and my friend Nicki made tonight, was SOOO gorgeous. Other than that it would have to be chilli con carni or meatball pittas.

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?

    Greek yoghurt and honey - yummmmm!

    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?

    Do a full beauty night - do my own waxing and mani/pedi - acyrlics if I want them as I am also learning to do them myself. I watch a girly movie and do face masks, have sw pimms, a nice bath and so on .... beautify myself!!!

    8. What's your favourite bodywash/gel/soap?

    Loving chocolate bubble bath - £1 in Asda at the min, its gorgeous!!

    9. What's your favourite body lotion/butter?

    Burts Bees lotion, smells amazing.

    10. Celebrating each milestone?

    Just with the sticker and everyones congrats :D

    1. What was the turning point that got you to try SW?
    I got a big shock last year when weighing myself for the first time in years - I was horrified that I was 13 stone which just put me in the obese BMI category!

    2. What's the biggest change you've made to your lifestyle since starting SW?
    I ate relatively healthy food previously - I love fruit and veg - but I ate too much rubbish alongside it! I've really cut down on the junk food, I still eat treats but it's totally controlled using syns.

    3. How has SW changed your life?
    I have more energy, and I no longer suffer from back pain. I have so much more confidence in myself - I no longer think that people must be thinking 'what an ugly fat thing she is'.

    4. What's your exercise of choice?
    I like EA Sports Active for the Wii - it's totally changed my body shape!

    5. What's your favourite SW meal?
    That's so difficult! Pasta dishes, vegetable and/or meat based, are my favourite. With cheese!!

    6. What's your favourite low syn treat?
    Sugar free jelly, and biscuits like custard creams, bourbons and rich tea fingers!

    7. What do you do to pamper yourself that's not food related?
    A long hot soak in the bath with my spa bubble mat in!

    8. What's your favourite bodywash/gel/soap?
    I love Lush and Soap and Glory products.

    9. What's your favourite body lotion/butter?
    Again, Lush and Soap and Glory things. I also love the body butter ranges from Boots and Body Shop.

    10. What do you do to celebrate each milestone loss? (i.e. every half stone or stone or whatever you decide)
    I don't really do anything but I think I'll treat myself to a load of new clothes when I reach my target - not long to go now!
