New and wanting to lose weight

Hi All, I found Minimins completely by accident as I was searching for weight loss forums. I need to lose about three stone to be happy with my weight but I know it is one step at a time. I have done yo yo dieting in the past, it does not work. I tried Weight Watchers on line that did not work for me. Next I tried reducing fats, not snacking and smaller portions and that worked. I then went through a bad time with arthritic knees which stopped me exercising because of the pain. I have now had a total knee replacement in my right knee and nine weeks post-op, I am hoping in the next six months or so to have the other knee operated on and that will really get me up and running. I would like to lose some weight for my next op and then carry on and hopefully get down to a reasonable weight for me.

So now I am going to take a few days to read through Minimins and decide on which course I need to go. I want to look after my new knee and the future one so I really do need to lose weight.

hi Sharon, well one week in and I lost half a stone . Slimming world is too good to be true, dont you think? I could not believe it, but I think it is the weigh ins from now on will be more realistic. I am so delighted because I was definately not hungry and not craving so much sugar as normal. So, so far so good ...
 
Hey guys new to this but thought strength in numbers and I need strength :) so I'm coming to the end of week 4 - 7lb down so far let's see what Wednesday brings :) x
