    I'm not a experienced cook but i do know a few reciepes however would appreciate a few helpful tips along the way.
    I want to loose 4 stone ultimately. How has everybody found slimming world and have you managed to maintain your weight. please tell me your storys :)

    Welcome Jess!
    I'm a re-joiner after 3 years and it feels like I completely started again!
    SW for me, personally is the only one worth doing. No counting or points.. just eating healthily and you can even have the things you want and not feel guilty for having them!
    I love SW meals.. there are lots of ideas for meals on here :)
    Good luck on your journey!

    hey, thanks for all of your answers :)
    I started my slimming world plan today, and it is much needed after getting weighed yesterday :/ gasp!
    I had a crappy start this morning as i hadn't been shopping so didn't eat anything until 2.30 starving isn't the word!
    but i think over all I've had a good rest of the day.
    Will be posting my food diary in a minute and constructive criticism welcome.
    Thanks Jess xx

    Welcome, it's very friendly and helpful here.
    I've dieted on and of for pretty much all my adult life (I'm 45 :-() I'm new too and weighed in today after one week and lost 5lbs! I'm delighted, I've been full all week, I've had sooooo many pieces of fruit and veg, ive slept well and had more energy. I've tried 3 SW recipes this week and they are so easy to do and follow so I can recommend the chicken chausseur, beef chilli and baked potato with prawn and seafood dressing. Might be helpful to look at the website for meal ideas then plan your shopping and cooking round that. I've also made soup this week as I can have a big bowl of syn free veg or minestrone for lunch at work with fruit and a muller fat free yogurt.
    Hope you enjoy SW, I certainly am and hoping its a change for life......

    I'm going to try and have a better day today, I was out nearly all day yesterday so couldn't make anything when i wanted so i started to feel hungry and faint ( no good)
    So i'm gonna have a full english then i'm going out but i'm going to take something with me and dinner is already planned. With my social life and job slimming world is pretty hard, but i'm going to stick to it for a couple of weeks and see if i can find a happy medium :)

    You can do it Jess! Juggling might be hard to start with but over time, it will become 2nd nature and won't feel like a burden.
    Don't give up!
