Good luck!

I was also a former WW'er, but just couldn't get back into it after the change to ProPoints.

I'd always poo-poo'd SW in the past, but I take back everything i say - it's the easiest diet I have done, and I'm loving it!

My tip would be to try and eat as many free foods as you can during the day, and then you can save your syns for something nice! I haven't used any today, so I'll be having a Mint Aero tonight!

I tried WW years ago. I also tried Lipotrim, eating next to nothing and a lot of other "diets".
This is the first "diet" I've been on that's actually not a diet. It's a lifestyle change that happens to result in weight loss. It's not something I use to get the weight off, it's something I use to KEEP the weight off when I'm done.
It's so easy to follow. Keep your bible, ahem I mean food optimising book with you at all times for the first few weeks, and by then you'll have consulted it so often for the things you eat/enjoy most that you'll know it off by heart, and will only need to use it if you're having something new.
Do try to exercise, even if it's only having a stroll to the shops or playing the Wii. It does appear to help tighten your skin up as you go.
Don't assume something is free, check it.
Do eat until you're full. No need to leave some on your plate to feel like you're dieting. If it's free... go for it.
Don't keep eating once you are full though lol

I'm also a former WW'er who has made the change to SW. I had my 1st weigh in last night and lost 2lbs! I ate much more than I would have before on WW. I had a bad day in the week but drew a line under it and filled up with free food for the rest of the week! It was so lovely not to be clawing back points and going without in order to make up for it!
Forget all you learnt about the WW points and read the SW green book from cover to cover. I found the first couple of days a little but hard, getting to grips with it but it's starting to make sense now!
Good luck with your new journey x x

Hope it was a good meeting? If it left you fired up it couldn't have been bad!

I'm braving my first ever SW class tomorrow...eek! I'm sure it'll be less terrifying than I think :)

Congrats on starting your SW journey!

Ooh I'm also a former WW'er... and pretty new to SW too, it is hard to make the transition at first, not having to 'count' everything you eat is ever so weird at first!
BUT.... it will be the best decision you make, I have never found a 'diet' so easy to stick to and feel more positive about losing weight now than I ever have done before.
Good luck and well done for making the decision :)
