    Hello :)

    I have been messing about with my weight loss for so long, I bought the latest SW magazine last week and have decided to try it. The only thing is it looks really confusing.

    I weighed myself this morning and I was 16st 12lb, nearly 17 stone :( I can't believe i've let myself gain so much weight. My hubby and I are trying for a baby and my weight isn't helping things. The doctor has assured me that my weight isn't such an issue (as I was this weight when I had ds) but I feel so old and tired.

    I know i'm asking this question on a SW forum, but do you all think SW is a good choice? I have tried ww and I was so hungry all the time.

    I'd be really grateful for your opinions.

    Thanks,

    You have a similar amount of weight to lose as I did when I started SW, Im just over 4 months into it and three stone down already and Ive actually enjoyed it! Its not complicated at all and I for one dont weigh a thing, (I know some things I should - i.e cheese, but hey ho its working for me) Id say give it a go, you've got nothing to lose - but the weight! I cant compare it to any other diet as this is the first time Ive ever tried to lose weight - gawd knows why I dint try til I reached such a colossal weight! Good luck with whatever you decide! xxx

    We are all different and therefore SW will suit some but not others. I have tried WW, SW, RC, CD, Gi, Atkins, you name it and I find SW suits me best. You are never ever hungry, you can eat lots of fruit and veg, and you can have treats everyday as you can have 'syns'. I hate processed foods and microwave meals and prefer to cook from scratch so SW suits me. Ive recently stopped drinking alcohol and I dont eat chocolates and cakes so I can use my 'syns' wisely.
    Try it for a few weeks and see how you get on, thats the only way to find out but you have to stick to it for it to work. I find SW easier than WW - once yoou get your head around it - its a doddle.

    I eat and eat all day and have NEVER felt hungry not once! I keep the tummy topped up with fruit with Muller light yoghurt on when required. Fill yourself with the free stuff and add a few healthy extras (2 slice wholemeal bread...porridge etc) and have a few syns to keep you sane (quavers my faves!) I will tell you if I had a pound for eveyone who've said I looked well I would have £23 saved in the 4 weeks!!!

    you will never be hungry on slimming world as there is always something you can eat. also i dont know where you live but in suffolk if you are over a certain weight your doctor can give you a 12 week course for slimming world so its worth finding out. good luck on which ever one you decide on doingxx

    SW does look a little complicated of you just look at it in a book or magazine but once the consultant explains it it's really easy and you can do it without really thinking about it.

    Ruthy, when I was in a SW brain freeze a few months before my wedding I switched to SF for a few months for a change of scenery. Not only did it unfreeze my dieting brain but it made me really appreciate the freedom of SW and I was really looking forward to the day I went back on it. A short term change will help you out of a rut
