New to Slimming World

Hi, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Matt and this is my first day on Slimming World :) (I'm sure I must have done something wrong, I'm so full!)

I was previously on Lighter Life, I just fell inside the 30 bmi limit for joining and thought it would be the best way to get the weight off quickly, and well, it worked, I lost 10 lbs in just 2 weeks! Depsite this, LL just wasn't for me, I was finding it difficult and left the program earlier this week due to medical concerns.

I'm really looking forward to the coming weeks with SW, not just for the weight loss, but also for the all the yummy looking recipes I'll get to cook! :D

I'm doing SW from home using BodyOptimise, so I hope I can rely on you ladies and gents to be my "group" and help me understand the ins and outs of food optimising! ;)

:welcome: to the forum! I was on CD last year and found it made me feel ill and the losses were no better than I have had on SW. I really recommend the recipe sticky at the top of the page. There are loads of great recipes to keep you interested.

Good luck!
Thank you all for such a warm welcome :)

Treats, probably a silly question, but what's a weigh in group?

hiya and welcome!!!!
what Treat means by a weigh in group is we like to start teams and give ourselves a little challenge of losing say half a stone a month and every week we post our losses/gains on that groups thread and see how we go lol!
i was until recently captain of the **SW ANGELS** but due to problems with my 3 special needs kids, not being able to pass my driving test and being totally brain dead lol i have passed it over to Mrs Edz. i still log all my gains! and little losses lol cos daft as it sounds it does actually help keep me on track (summats got to!!!)
hope my explanation helps
sorry if i wafflin son made me get up at 5.30am! he gone to Brum for Good Food Exhibition
