    hi everybody,;)

    i was never bothered much before but at 36 and after years of yo-yo dieting and intermittent gym visits, iv'e finally decided to join my local slimming world.

    i thought i'd be the only guy there but was pleasantly surprised to see another man there.

    anyway, 3 days on and im doing good so far and after reading success stories on here its spurrs me on even more

    anyway, i'll keep you all updated after my weekly weigh in :D

    any tips would be appreciated too..

    Good luck for your weigh in.
    A guy in my old class lost 13lbs in his first week I was staggered, it just shows how good this plan is. I've noticed that guys lose lots on sw and find it much easier than us girls.

    I recommend you eat, eat, eat and eat sw friendly meals and snacks. My consultant says the more you eat the more you lose especially if you concentrate on speed foods. I still find it funny each week when she tells us we're not eating enough :)

    Hello and welcome,

    You won't be able to do this until you reach 50 posts yourself.

    Go on then start posting - the quickest way is all the word games.

    Good luck with your journey xxx
