    Hey all, i am new to the slim-fast plan, this is my first day on it and i am pleasently surprised so far, i had a strawberry shake for breakfast, a banana for 10 o'clock, a latte shake for lunch so hopefully i am on the right track so far, i was doing slimming world for a while, but for me it was to complicated, or maybe not strict enough, but i like this plan as its just one meal i need to plan for, any tips for the newbie lol, lookforward to speaking to you all.

    Hiya carloine.

    Welcome to slim fast. Im on my third day, started monday so im a newbie too. Every one here is lovely, you'll get loads of help and support (especially off the slim fast pros!!!).

    Best advice i was given was to read through some of the diaries, they act as real good motivation, as well as giving you loads of tips!

    I've been finding slim fast brilliant (so far) struggled a little with temptation last night but came on here and there was plenty of people around to talk me round!!!!

    Like I said this is my third day and im really learning to appreciate food..... i had a banana earlier and for the first time really really enjoyed it!! Just shows i dont need to eat a whole pack of donuts for satisfaction!!!!

    All the best of luck, and im sure you'll keep us updated with your progress.

    Lotty.xxx

    I found the slimming world forum on ivillage great for help and support and the appreciated kick up the bum when i went off the rails, but i just think i need something thats more strict with me, it was a toss up between the slim fast and liposilm (*i think thats what its called lol*) but i didn't like the idea of having no food at all, so at least with sf you get a meal lol i have a huge amount of weight to lose..........8st, i have joined the local gym and going 3 times a week now, and i will start keeping a food diary for every single day now, so girls.... onwards and downwards!!

    Hellooo! Welcome to the forum, and to slimfast :D Good luck, and I agree with what the others have said - this is a great, friendly, motivating place :D

    I keep a food diary too, it does help to see exactly what you're eating!

    If you have an iPhone there's a great app for keeping a food diary. It's myfitnesspal, you can also get it on the computer aswell. You can find most foods on there an it'll calculate your calories. I use this and it really helps.
