    I start a new job tomorrow, in a school as a support assistant, am really pleased and excited if rather nervous! Am also anxious about how it will affect my weight loss!
    I was fortunate in my other job that I could eat whenever and had access to microwave etc a lot of the time but am unsure how this will work out in the new job!
    Also i tended to do a lot of green days as it suited me to tend to graze through out the day whereas now I will have chance to eat more meals with the family and my mealtimes will be more regular and structured to the school breaks and lunchtimes etc So I am intending to try more extra easy days.
    I'm sure it will all work out ok but its just on my mind!

    Congrats on your new job. Why dont you take a few syn free snacks in with you to have during breaks. You will also probably find there is a microwave somewhere that you will be able to use so plan you lunches around that. With a more structured daily routine you should be fine.

    I am sure you will be fine first days are always a bit scary Good luck

    Good luck for tomorrow! I also start a new job in a school tomorrow, really nervous! I only started Slimming World on Tuesday so I'm still getting used to it all and I am also worried about how it is going to affect my eating as I've just had the school holidays off for 6 weeks and been able to eat when I want.

    whoo hoo well done on the new job. Hope it goes exceptionally well for you. As you say it will go completely OK and within a few days you will be into what time they have breaks and lunch etc and what equipment they have in the kitchenm etc etc.

    I started a new job 3 months ago - was extremely nervous but within a few days I was well into their routines.

    Good luck

    I'm also a support assistant! Work with a visually impaired child. I've worked within SEN for the past 3 years but in a much smaller school. It's going well so far, so different to my last school though. How is it going for you? I lost 3.5 lbs after my first week on slimming world too so had a pretty great week. :D

    Congrats on the new job - I was a TA for a few years before doing teacher training and I loved it.

    Most school staffrooms are well equipped so if you did want to heat something up that shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure you take in your own snacks for breaks - every school staffroom I've been in always seems to have an endless supply of chocolate, cake and biscuits!
