    so i am new to this forum, not new to dieting mind:doh:.
    i am 38 married and have two children. about 7 years ago i started slimming world and lost nearly 4 stone, i kept it off for over a year and then it slowly started kreeping up on me again, i am now at my heaviest ever.
    on saturday i decided enough is enough and dusted off my slimming world books, and am gonna try really hard to shift all this weight and loose it once and for all.
    i am currently living in belgium, so i dont have a group here which is why i was searching for an online support group.
    looking forward to reading my way through.

    Good luck :) if you've done it once before you know you can do it again :) may be worth getting some updated books as some things may have changed since you last did it? xxx

    Good Luck Zofia! I am on day 1 with SW and have all the up to date literature that I was given at group last night. If you need to ask anything, feel free! They have brought in a new programme since you were last there, the Extra Easy plan, which does away with the red day / green day thing or can be used in combination with it.

    I am using Extra Easy, which does, as it says, appear to be exactly that.

    nearly a year on and no progress has been made, since i tried to tackle to many things at the same time i have stumbled and stayed down.
    i am back to the weight i started at, am smoking again, and am miserable.

    now hubby is away for 7 months due to his job, and after the initial first few days of feeling sorry for myself i have decided enough is enough. self pitty and hiding in the house is not a healthy life style.

    so here i am again, have started sw by myself again yesterday, and am determined to be successful this time round and stick with one thing at a time.
