    Hi, new to mini mins.. trying to work this all out.. Started SW 5 weeks ago and already i feel like giving up. Going to weigh tommorow if i havent lost any then i am seriously going to consider given up. I was on cambridge previously and got on with that well until i had a break from it and then couldnt get back into it. I lost weight quickly on that. with this diet it seems like i am getting no where. :( x

    Hi and Welcome to Minimins and SW
    Dont give up.......... SW really is a FAB *diet* Its not a diet at all. Embrace the change of eating habits and a new life of losing weight AND eating and never being hungry. Ok SW maybe a slower way to lose weight than the meal replacement diets etc BUT SW can be for life.
    At sometime with meal replacement diets you have to get back on to eating real food again, and i'm guessing thats when there is every opportunity to put the weight back on.
    With SW you can eat real food and lose weight. All your favourites can be SW adapted.
    Some of the things we have here are
    chips
    wedges
    pizza
    spaghetti carbonarra
    lasagne
    cottage pie
    spag bol
    curry
    Stir fry
    chilli con carne
    meatballs and spaghetti
    Roast dinner
    SW KFC
    Rice pudding
    Black forest gateau
    meringue
    Apple strudle
    Chocolate mousse

    Now with all that on offer how can you give up??

    In my humble opinion CD is a quick-fix option, whereas sw will help you get slim, and stay slim for aslong as you stick to it :) If you aren't losing hun, you musn't nbe following it right - try posting everything you eat in the diary section for the experienced sw-ers to look at, they can help you and point out whats wrong:) I don't think i would get through sw without mini mins - the constant support and cheering people on, aswell as ideas for meals and snacks - i love it!!! Good luck and see you around! please dont give up! xxxx

    Must be a bit annoying when you are doing it with other people and they lose and you don't. :(

    Weight tends to drop off men quicker - in this house anyway. My husband kept insisting that he WASN'T on a diet but I noticed that he kept following my lead and using frylite to fry and cutting fat off meat etc and lo an behold he dropped a stone in about 6 weeks. Grrr.

    It's really difficult not to compare yourself with others but you need to get determination on your side and that will carry you through when the others have maybe lost more than you. Also if you lose less quickly you may be more likely to keep it off so it may turn out that they get to their goal weight before you and then when you are still going down to your target weight they may give up and start going back up again!

    Chins up and keep at it.:)
