    Hi everyone
    Tomorrow night will be my first SW meeting. I desperately want to lose weight this year, for me, not other reason. Just sick of looking at 2 wardrobes of clothes I cant wear, sick of worrying about what I am going to wear for every occasion, sick of feeling tired and lethargic!!! Will stop moaning now!
    My history is that I lost three stone three years ago on the Cambridge Diet. Although I found it relatively easy to lose the weight, I have put it all back on over 2 years. Old habits die hard!
    My immediate hunch was to go back on the Cambridge but I simply cannot face what feels like me punishing myself. Also I cannot face putting it all back on again.
    So I am taking the plunge and joining SW.
    I would like to lose about 4 stone in total so will be around for a long time!!!

    hi MSL,
    I'm a newbie to the SW forum but was around a heck of a lot last year on the CD forum (diff. user name and email etc) ....I lost 4st 1lb in about 12 wks, and it took about 6 months for me to put it back on :cry: I binge on chocolate throughout the day, so the weight came back quickly...very quickly.
    Just wanted to say Hi, and that I sort of know where you're at right now. I started SW for the 3rd time a couple of days ago.
    Feel good up to now. But I'm ill so my appetite has gone west, hope it doesnt come back to be honest :D
    Good Luck for your class tomorrow night. Hope to catch up with you on the forum.:D
    xx jo

    I have only just had the chance to log in today and was overwhelmed to see all the lovely support. Thanks!
    I have not exactly had a good start on SW. I started on the week where I was away on business for two days and staying in a hotel, then a work night out, and then a friend's hen night!!! Although I have really tried to be totally strict, I would admit that I messed up on two meals as there simply wasnt enough choice, and also had too much alcohol for my syns.
    BUT! The good news is I am totally up for it and today a friend of mine on the diet is coming round and we are doing a huge cook in! Gonna do big pans of veggie curry, chilli, ratatouille and pasta sauces which we can then freeze. I am determined to crack this and to also be prepared for my busy life.

    Hi there
    went for my first weigh in and lost 3.5lbs which I am thrilled about!!!!

    A quick question! Can someone tell me how to update my weight on the slimming world member's page? It say you update it on the Passport for Success but I simply cant find it! DOH!
    Will get my tracker up on here too tomorrow when I have more time.

    when you log on there should be a box on the right hand side of the screen saying 'update your weightloss today' ...or something like that! you then type in your current weight and then you can view you weightloss chart.
