    Hi all!

    Im struggling at the moment and hoping having someone to speak to and to build a friendship with (text/whatsapp possibly) will help me get to my goal. Ive lost 2st 4lbs since October and Im up and down more than a yoyo! I still have 5st 4.5lbs to target and it seems like such a long way off. My husband is trying to follow SW but he doesnt have much will power so trying to get him to understand how hard I am finding things is impossible!
    Im 27, and a stay at home mum with two children which is difficult as im never far from the biscuit tin! So if anybody doesnt think im a saddo (haha) and wants a buddy let me know xx

    Hey I'm starting again and would also like someone to buddy up with as i'm not going to group and my partner doesn't follow slimming world and it can be very hard watching him eat copious amounts of crisps and chocolate!

    Oh good luck! I always find this part of the day tricky where I start to get hungry waiting for the OH get back. Also third day in and I've found my sugar levels are a bit all over the place but phew i'm thinking about the end goal. I'm from Southampton how about you?

    Im from Wiltshire, not far from Bath.
    Im struggling now too. My husband has my re-doing our kitchen, and as it was out of bounds me and the children stayed at my parents last night. But I came home this morning to find a whole dominos pizza sat in the fridge even though there was a SW chilli in the fridge for him eat last night.
    Its killing me as im desperate to scoff it! And as he is still busy working, i cant cook any dinner so im STARVING! Bloody men! Xx

    I'm not really sure how to do it but I've had private messages & things before.

    I'm 33 & from central scotland. My husband is another who eats what he likes & never seems to gain although he is a gym freak.

    Keep strong and have the chili. Why is it as soon as you change your eating habits you suddenly fixate on things?

    Well i resisted the pizza and stuck to plan and feel so much better today. Get weighed tonight so hopefully its going to be a good loss :)

    Ive found that since starting SW i have become completely obsessive with the diet :-s

    Well done on resisting the pizza. This is my first day on plan after joining yesterday and as it isn't pay day until tomorrow my cupboards are looking a bit bare. Was walking around the supermarket this morning like a rabbit in headlights- I followed SW for years but for the past few years have gone to and from WW propoints and my head seems programmed to that now.

    Hi All.
    Just saw this post.
    When I started along the SW road I couldn't see the light at the end, now Iv'e got there life is good!
    Firstly set yourself a target to aim for, say 1 stone in 8 weeks! Now that's dueable so plan ahead.
    write a menu for the week, only buy the ingredients for these meals, (try to choose meals that your partner will eat)
    If you can prepare meals that can go in a slow cooker, get up a little earlier and get it ready, when you come to meal time the lovely smell will make you wish you did this all the time....
    I always have a large breakfast, then I don't want to eat anything till dinner time, always have fruit available for those hunger pangs, saved the temptation to look for sweets etc.
    Remember, be determined and you will succeed!
    I was given 6 months to live if I didn't change my eating habit's, after 2 strokes I got the message!
    That was 3 years ago, so ladies, go for it, you are doing it for your own self estime.
    If you want ideas for food then follow the links below for my recipes.
    Give me a call if you need to.
    Pete

    I think it's your settings - I think you have to have made a certain number of posts before you get access to pm x

    Hi all mind if I join you? I started back on plan a few weeks ago but work 3 jobs and can't manage to get to class but miss the support you got from going to group. Lost 10lb so far with another 2/3 stone to go. Feel a bit old though at 48 but come with lots of experience lol.
    My hubby is supportive and cooks tea while I'm working the sw way but get the feeling deep down he thinks hear we go again.

    Great loss always makes me want to loose weight even more.
