    Hi all!

    It's just suddenly occured to me to introduce myself before I start posting!

    I'm Camille, I've been doing SW since 30/12/09 - crazy for joining the day before NYE, but refused to make it a NY Resolution to lose weight so started earlier IYKWIM?? Some psychological thing I guess lol.

    I have lost 1st 6.5lbs so far - which I'm so happy with (even if I was a little gutted to have missed my one a half stone sticker by half a pound last WI!) Just 16lb to go!

    I stick to EE, can't really fathom O/G days??!! Although I think I've been having alot of Greens by default!

    I'll stiop waffling now!

    Looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better :)

    Camille x

    Welcome Camille!

    Congratulations on your amazing loss so far! This is my first week on SW and i have 22lb to lose - i have my first weigh in tomorro!!

    I have been sticking to red days as extra easy confuses me and i'm not a bit fan of pasta.

    I am doing the body optimise plan online as i live in Belgium so can't get to meetings - this forum is proving an invaluable source of advice motivation and inspiration!

    So again, welcome, and i wish you continued success on your journey

    Becky xx

    Thank you for a lovely welcome :)

    I'm actually about 10 miles out of Brighton (a ghost toen called Newhaven)... Yes I have been to Due South... OMG the food really, really is stunning.... I haven't been out in Brighton for a proper night out (except going to a rock night - but that doesn't involve drinking - and if it does it involves lots of dancing to compenate :)) in Brighton since being on SW.... I would be off plan before I'm off the bus lol!

    Engine Rooms, Hobgoblin, or the Caroline of Brunswick I assume! The only places to go I hear! You didn't go to see Echovirus did you - they are reasonably local to you and played Brighton a few weeks ago!

    LOL, we started in the Caroline :) (Gotta love that 3 headed dog behind the bar!) Then on to the Komedia, who host a rock night once a month - but it is run by the same people as the Engine Rooms (and the Engine Rooms started because of this rock night...) I never know if the Hob is open these days :( It's always opening and closing...

    ETA: Always opening and closing *down* pubs generally have a tndacy to open and close lol

    I've never seen Echovirus, but have heard of them. A friend of a friend is ine the band... I don't know who it is though!

    Hi Carla!! :)

    I don't know who runs the Seaford one, but Val who runs Newhaven is lovely (even if she is a bit scatty at times LOL). We have a quite active Facebook Group, you should join us (add me, I'll invite you :)) There's also a 9.30 am and 7pm group at riverside hall as well as the 5pm on of you're ever stuck :), and Peacehaven's group is on a Monday too if you ever need to use that one :)

    Good luck :) x
