Hi ethyl, Im only 3 weeks in, 10lbs is ALOT but 4lbs would be great, Im pleased with my slow but steady weight loss so far so stick at it, Im only 3 weeks in but still nearly half a stone lighter. Good luck swimming, your braver than I am!

Welcome to the forum and welcome back to SW. I have been here a while and done SW for 4 years but I also still have a long way to go.
Hi, I am a newbie. Have just joined SW - did it once before but only lasted a couple of weeks as I just craved sugar!!! Did mainly green and found it bulked me out. So having another go but doing mainly original days (dont really eat bread or potatoes much anyway)

Would love to hear some ideas from you all

Hallo everyone !
So far not too bad, had a bbq on saturday...which didn't go quite as i had hoped... i did eat a few of the wrong things BUT i didn't lose control completely I'm relieved to say !
I chose an original day and stuck mostly to the right food, even made my own burgers, but tripped up with the french bread and cheesecake for afters!! Oh and i had a shandy..so i rekon if i say 50 syns for that day it will cover me as a flexible syn day??
Anyway the swim was lovely and i'm really glad i did it, hoping to again this week some time as my hip which has been playing me up quite badly for 2 weeks is showing signs of improvement :)
Feeling positive so far and sending positive vibes out to u all xx

BBQ's are excellent for Red days, but I find I do need to be prepared with wholemeal rolls otherwise I can't keep away from the french bread!

I've not yet found anything to keep me away from the cheesecake though!

Hi Ethyl (thats my nan's name, except she's Ethel!) Anyway, I started SW the wed before last, after having reached goal at weight watchers, given up and seen the weight start to creep back on. I lost 4lb in my first week, so fingers crossed for you. Let us know how you get on :)
