    hi folks i am new to all this forum stuff so please be gentle as from today i am changing diet from ww pro points to slimming world in an effort to keep me on track so any help would be most welcome as my work colleague and i are doing this ourselves by following all the info online and not going to a class. i have 11 pounds to lose which for some might not seem much but for someone 11 pounds away from her taget weight, this means i no longer fit into most of my clothes.. if anyone can think of any info to help i would be really gratefull cheers in advance :p

    Hi, welcome. I'm pretty new too but there is so much info in here.

    The main thing that helps me stick to plan is to Meal Plan.
    Good luck. X

    Hi, welcome along. This diet works pure and simple, just follow the rules. It takes a while to fall into place but keep reading, keep planning in advance and you won't go wrong. If you've done WW then you know already that keeping a food diary and preparing in advance takes all the thinking out of everything. Cook in bulk and freeze meals. Check out the threads on here what's for lunch, tea etc to see what everyone else is eating. Make sure to look at the recipes and healthy extra threads too to give you ideas and variety into the diet to prevent repetition and boredom. And lastly, please eat the syns! Cutting back doesn't work and has the opposite effect and don't be despondent if there isn't a massive weight loss first week especially when switching from one diet plan to another, you will get there and it does work. Best of luck with everything :D

    Hi Janie!

    While I'm not new, I've been off the Slimming World plan for quite a long time, and I'm picking it up again now that I'm in the USA! This forum is a great place to be when you're new to the plan, and I'm sure there are plenty of people who are/have switched from WW who can advise you and give you support. If there's anything I can help with, or if you just need someone to chat to about stuff, I'd be more than happy to talk to someone who's in a similar situation to me!

    Good luck with your journey! x

    I came from ww too. I actually didn't lose on my first week. Basically I think this is because I ate so bloody little on ww it came as a shock to my body eating so much on sw!!

    Trust the plan,it works.

    I started sw online in January at 10.7 and I'm now 9.9. Only a few pounds away from target, Im never hungry and do not feel like I'm on a diet, only a better, healthier way of eating.

    I tend to follow red and ee! Green is very rare for me! I love meat! Ee is as it says though, but I think as I'm an old school member of sw from the green/original only days I'm okay with it!

    Good luck x
