    Morning all

    I have been on the SW forum for a while as was giving that a go. However, despite loving eating loads of pasta and potatos, I don't feel the same freedom that comes from calorie counting. A few years ago I lost over 4 stone calorie counting and need to lose that (and a bit more) again this time. So think I'd best stick to what i know.

    May start a diary shortly as I find that keeps me on the straight and narrow!

    Hello! I am seriously considering calorie counting instead of SW. I've lost 2 1/2 stone on SW but I just fancy a change. Good luck! :)

    Hi
    I've just moved across from SW also. I did well at the begining but after a while found that I was eating far too much beacause my head kept telling me that is was syn free where in reality I knew that I was eating too many calories per day!!!!!!!! I know they say not to count calories & eat unto full but I kept argueing with myself & was thinking about what to eat next all the time!

    Hi guys - welcome to CC.

    Chinababe - I know just what you mean. I was exactly the same on the SW plan. I just ate so much free food, cos it was "free". This time I decided to stick with what I know - if you eat less calories than you need, you'll lose weight - and I have:) Also, I do love my treats, especially curly wurlys at 115 cals each:D

    Hi Meltdown
    thank you for welcome. I think I need a number to restrict myself to. Free food is only free if you eat normally but my head rule my appetite- I am not hungry but want to eat in my head! If that makes any sense.

    Chinababe - you've hit the nail on the head for me. "free food" is really only free if you eat normally. I know I could eat a plate of pasta, the size of which would feed a family! So I think I'm better calorie counting too. It didn't fail me before and hopefully won't now!

    Chinababe & Bubblebum - I'm glad I'm not the only one! I know you are only supposed to eat until you are full, but as soon as I knew the food was free, I kept scoffing it, full or not! I'm now almost at goal and have done it by calorie counting and eating healthily. Good luck and enjoy your journey.

    I personally don't understand the whole slimming club thing, I obsess over numbers being right so perhaps that's why calorie counting works for me??
