Welcome to the forum and good luck with your weight loss.

My aim is to lose 10 stones - I don't care how long it takes me as long as I keep on losing, and I am getting on well thank you, the SW diet is the best as far as I'm concerned and I have tried so many diets over the years.

Good luck with your first WI.


A moaning old boot!!!!

Hiya, first of all, well done on joining SW. I LOVE IT!!!!!

My inital target is to lose 4 st 9lbs to get myself into a healthy BMI range and then I am gonna take it from there. I have never seen myself at the weight I am just now and lower (because I was very young when I was this weight last!) so I will take it from there and maybe go down another stone or half stone.
I have been with SW for 12 weeks now and have just got my 2 stone sticker so I am very pleased.
Good luck with your first WI and keep us updated x x x

I have 5 1/2 stone to lose, i've done about 11lb so far. I don't tend to think of the big picture as I would get to disheartened. Good luck with your weight loss.

I've hoping to lose about 3 stone but i'm taking every day as it comes and just see how i get on. That's a big target so i'm going to make myself some mini targets x
