Hi, my names Michelle, I'm 41 and I've been dieting on and off for decades, lol. Not done SW in a few years and heard it had changed, so decided to join with a friend and I am going to give it my all and hope that I can get back to my pre-pregnancy weight once and for all (my kids are 17 and 15 :sigh:).

When I left home at 18, I was way too skinny at 9.5 stones and by the time I got pregnant for the first time I weighed in at 11 stones. At my heaviest I was 15st 13lb and bordering a UK size of 22, and I am weighed in at SW yesterday at 14st 4.5lb, and i'm about a size 18. I had gotten down to 13st 4lb last July and then had a seizure and was started on Epilepsy meds, which caused my to rapidly gain a stone :cry: - which I just haven't been able to shift, even tho I was cleared of epilepsy in November and have since been clear of medication....

So, a brief life story... setting myself an interim goal of 12st, because I think its more do-able if it doesn't seem too far away. I have tried many diets in my lifetime, WW, SW, Cambridge, Atkins, South Beach, Facial Type, Blood Type and goodness knows how many others - I love fruit, pasta and jacket potatoes...so here's hoping this new SW Extra Easy Plan will do the trick - and with all your support too!!! ;)

Pleased to meet you all

Michelle x

Hi Michelle,

Hi Michelle, love your introduction. Welcome back to SW! I'm sure you will be absolutely fine on it. The new EE plan took a couple of weeks to sink in with me (the other times I did SW it was red and green days) but honestly it's so easy and versatile! And if you get stuck there will always be some one on here to help you.
Good luck and keep in touch xx

HMMMNN....well...it wasn't quite what I was expecting lol! :rolleyes: On the recipe thread, other posters had said how nice and sticky the gammon gets...my sauce didn't thicken up AT ALL!!! I mean it was nice, but that's as far as it goes! Dunno wot I did wrong...I mite try again when i next get a gammon joint.

Carbonara sounds very nice. We had chicken korma tonight which went down very well. I love the fact that we can all have the same meals, so much easier. :p

My consultant asked me the same question tonight lol!

The only thing I changed this week was switching my usual 2 x w/meal toast in the morning for all bran or special k. I do feel it might be a bit lighter than bread?
Oh, and I have mown the lawn and moved a load of furniture around so I've been more active...I'm off work for a couple of weeks so hoping to fit a little more exercise in. Only sad thing is we have to put our little dog to sleep tomorrow ( mouth cancer) so not sure how I'm going to cope :cry:
