    Hi my name is Jo I originally started SW in February 2014 but ended up taking a 10 week hiatus so I restarted on July 4th with a loss of 9lbs since then I have lost another 4lbs so I am currently at 13lbs. I decided to do this both for myself and for people wanting to see if SW does work. Hopefully you will gradually see the difference from month to month I personally do not see a difference yet which is why I'm doing this for me too.

    Sorry its so small...ironic really with me trying to get smaller lol

    This was taken 2 weeks before I originally started SW in February 2014 this was at my nieces birthday party on January 13th 2014.

    Thanks guys I feel determined I just hope I stick to it this time. I know I can do it because I've done it before. Good luck to both of you on your losses. How are you liking SW?

    I like SW as many foods are unlimited so there is minimum weighing and I don't eat grain products so that allows me to fill up on lean meats, fruit and veg. I am only on day two (but have done SW before) and I am looking forward to the journey. I get excited thinking about getting on those scales and losing weight every week. ;)

    Are you going to class or doing it from home?

    I enjoy slimming world purely for the fact I don't have to cook 3 separate meals. I have a picky 2 year old so I am already cooking 2 different meals then my husband is one of those annoying people who eats and eats and eats and I put the weight on for him lol so he wouldn't be happy if I put him on a rabbit diet with SW I don't have to in fact since starting SW he's better fed lol. I love it and on other diets I've tried none of us were happy but we're all loving slimming world.

    I started at group in August 2013 and hated my consultant so decided to do it from home in October 2013 without anyone's help and I gained 16lbs and actually ended up weighing more than what my start weight was at SW group lol so I decided to try slimming world online and although I enjoy it I just had a recent 10 week blip and gained 6lbs which is nearly gone again but not the point so I contemplated going back to group but a different one but tbh I think group or not it would have happened just like I disappeared off of here for 10 weeks and off SW online for 10 weeks I probably just wouldn't have attended the meetings so I'm sticking with SW online and I've given myself and almighty kick in the bum and ready for some great losses now. And I love minimins I think its awesome to talk to people in the same situation as you and going through the same things as you and I found a group yesterday just for my weight bracket so I joined that thread and they are really nice and helpful and like me are working towards a huge loss.

    Yourself? Group or home?

    See I lost my weight on WWs but I'm going back 5/6 years but when I went back to WW they'd introduced propoints and my cousins had great success she's 5 1/2 stone lighter but I just couldn't get along with it and she actually tried to talk me out of slimming world as she'd never been successful but I love SW so much happier with SW than I ever was at WW. Good luck with losing the extra weight.

    The last two are from October 2014 - Weight 19st 4lbs - Bottoms -20/22 Tops - 18/20

    I think I see a difference...although it might be slight...but I think I was stood at an angle on side shot so bit hard to tell but I think my gut is shrinking a little bit...wants to start at 3st loss lol...and I think I look slimmer on my front on shot...I have decided that next month I'm going to have my pix done in my work out gear as the green shirt is a lot looser this month than last so it may not be showing the curves as well as it should but my workout gear is skin tight so there's no escaping the shame in those clothes lol

    Well done you're doing really well. SW is the only thing that's ever worked for me and I lost 6st on it. Stupidly I stopped going to group and totally blew it and am now doing it from home as too embarrassed to go back. I know what you mean about a consultant. If they don't work for you then group simply doesn't work at all. Keep it - you'll get there. :)

    Thank you both for commenting it really means a lot to me as I'm going through a rough patch and have lost my SW way a little. This is my 1st time doing SW and having tried all the other slimming clubs I have to admit this is my favourite and I've seen more results on SW and even though I am feeling a little lost atm I intend on seeing this through and not stopping till I hit target.

    We all go through a slimming rough patch, just be assured there is lots of support for you on the boards. Everyone is in the same weight loss boat, if it was easy we would all be skinny :D
    Just look out how far you have come, set yourself mini goals rather than looking at the end number for now. Have you been on the Wemitts thread of Mini mins? Pop in and say hello, lovely bunch of people.
    Keep us posted :)
