    Hi All,
    I joined today after looking up about actifry chips and syn values.
    I started Slimming World via Body Optimise 3 months ago.
    I have tried many diets in the past and resigned myself to being chunky. I was a size 18 and 103kg.
    I have been going fairly slowly - my friend did SW and lost 6 stone in 6 months and I was so shocked when I saw her she looked like a different person.
    I have so far lost about a stone and a half - my weight this morning was 91.6kg

    I love the green day program as I am a vegetarian. Cheese and wine are my downfall though.
    I am now a size 16, though have never been smaller than a 14.
    My best day so far was walking into a shoe shop and buying a pair of knee length boots and being able to zip them up! I have always have really chunky knees and big calfs - but using SW and also wearing Shape-ups shoes has done amazing things for my legs - they actually have shape and all the pain in my knees has gone - cant recommend them highly enough if anyone has the same problem with their legs.

    I like how my weight is stabalising at each new level - I have taken days off here and there for a holiday and eating out - but managed to catch back up easily within 2-3 days.

    I could probably have lost more but I wanted to lose it slowly so I wouldnt put it back on as soon as I reach my goal weight.
    I can see myself eating this way for the rest of my life as it doesnt really feel like a diet.

    Anyway - enough of my rambling - I am looking forward to learning more - tbh I felt a bit alone on Body Optimise - no support like I expected for the money - so am hoping I will make some friends here, and we can support each other.

    Sam
