    Hello All,

    I'm Lauren. I have been on Slimming World for 7 weeks now and in need of a bit of extra support! Lost 1 stone 2.5 lbs so far but it's slowing down!
    I have been using minimins for the last few weeks and been reading like crazy through peoples food diaries etc to get inspiration.

    Thought it was about time I created a profile and got chattin'

    Hope you're all good!
    Lauren

    Thank you for the welcome.

    'idle hands' indeed. Hopefully it'll stop me snacking :)

    Hey Rhi

    Well I am chuffed, I lost 4lbs tonight - must have been the no-alcohol rule at the weekend... might need to implement that a bit more me thinks!

    Got my Club10 as well but now feeling like I should have loads of treats which I know is bad!!

    How has your day been? Do you write a diary? Am tempted to start one!

    Well done Lauren. That's a fantastic Loss. Don't ruin it with pigging out now. Maybe treat yourself to something non food or if you really want a treat maybe one little treat size chocolate bar so you don't ruin it.

    Yes i have just started writing a diary in the diary section. I am finding it really helpful and the support i get in there really spurs me on to stay good. Let me know if you do start one and i'll come across and support you along your road to thinness. lol.

    As long as it was within your syn allowance hun then don't feel guilty about it.

    Happy to support you hun. How much do you have to loose? I have got just over 7 stone to loose which seems an impossible task at the moment. xxx

    I'm not really sure how much else I want to lose!
    I'm half a pound off a stone and a half, and would ideally like to lose another stone, maybe another stone and a half. I think I just want to see how I feel in another stones time and then go from there!

    I'll be sending lotsa support your way, it's good you are splitting it into portions of 7lbs etc, I think that always seems a lot more attainable. Go Rhi!!

    Thanks Lauren. I'll need all the support i can get lol.

    I'm sure you'll have that last stone to stone and a half off in no time hun. I'll be here to support you all the way.

    I went to my weigh in tonight (didn't go last week) and managed to loose 2.5lbs whoop whoop. My scales said i'd stayed the same as two weeks ago which i was already happy with as i had put on weight when i weighed myself at home on sunday lol. So i am going to go with the ww scales and update my ticker lol.

    Have you had a good day today?

    Hi Lou, thanks. I went to class and got weighed. There's normally a 1-2 pound difference in the scales but the trend tends to be roughly the same. My home scales normally weigh me slightly lighter (which i prefer lol). On the very odd week their scales won't say i have lost as much as mine but then it'll catch up in other weeks like this week. 2 weeks ago my scales said i'd lost 4lbs but at class the scales said i'd only lost 1lb annoyingly. looks like i caught up again this week.

    Have you got digital scales? Mine were quite cheap ones from argos a while ago x

    Engrossed in a movie sorry
    No mine are really old fashioned ones. I'll invest in digital ones I think - don't want to get obsessed with weighing myself !! lol x
