    Had lost 30lbs in 15 weeks at weight watchers, but stuck after that, then stopped going as I was fed up paying when i wasn't losing anything. That was back in May. Was terrified going to SW tonight incase I'd put on loads, but thankfully I'd managed to only put on 2.5lbs since then (plus I'm on hols at the moment and eating like a pig!) Really want to lose 3.5 stone to get to my target of 12 stone, and I'm so excited about following this plan. It seems so much more suited to me than WW. I'm just a bit worried that eating endless amounts of eggs and pasta etc won't work for me, but I'll give it a go! Can't do any harm!:D

    All hints and tips would be most welcome BTW!:p:D

    Hi I joined tonight for the 3rd time , the first time I joined was about 10 years ago I lost 5 stone, 2nd time was about 5 years ago and lost about a stone, in between I have done weightwatchers, I did loose 6 stone by myself but as usual what comes off goes back on again and more!!! I was doing ok by myself until Feb but since then I have been like a yo yo, This time I really want to crack it, I stayed to class tonight but found it really boring, do you think I should make the effort to stay to the class each week :confused:

    Is there another class you can go to? Our leader is great and makes the meetings fun but if it's boring you're not going to want to stay. I'd stay again next week in case this week's wasn't as good as usual (we all have off days).

    Hi Jacqu,

    Good luck with slimming world and reaching your target. I tend to find i lose better when i've had mostly red days, but as i like green days, i make sure i have a few. But i love that i can stuff my face (with SW friendly foods) , and lose weight lol

    Thanks for that, I too found in the past I lost by having mainly red days the second time I joined I did mostly green days loads of homemade chips egg and mushy peas yummy but didn't have such a good weight loss. I'm off to Asda to stock up on plenty of SW friendly foods.
    I will stay to class next week to see if I find it helpful. :)

    Thanks everyone for your encouraging words. Picked a really bad week to start SW, as I was away to 2 football matches this weekend in Southampton and London. Took a packed lunch with me on Friday, and managed to stay on track, but yesterday I wasn't so organised and ended up buying a ham and cheese baguette from upper crust as I was starving!:sigh:

    Haven't a clue how many syns would be in that, but not letting it worry me.

    Been very good today!

    I don't think theres much point in joining a slimming club unless you are prepared to stay. Sometimes if you have gained or only lost a small amount could quite easily put you off carrying on, but I think that you get motivation by listening to what the others in the group have done
