    Best advice i could pass on is not to look at what you want to loss as a large amount, but to chop it down into doable chunks i.e half a stone at a time, you will be given an award each time you loss half a stone as a sticker for you're book which is nice to see. Good luck and let us know how you get on. xxx

    Hi

    Good luck.I have done SW twice and lost 2 stone each time but once i stop it soon creeps back on.
    The main thing i am doing now is to plan my meals for the week. I have found it working so far this week, being my first week back.

    This group on here are a friendly bunch, even though im new here i have been reading through the posts and they are all very supportive

    Welcome to the forum and the wonders of Slimming world. There are many of us here who have done SW a few times, so if you have any questions pop along and someone will soon be able to point you in the right direction.

    Hi everyone

    I'm kind of a newbie too!

    I didn't really like the meetings, but I still stay some weeks as you can get some handy tips. For example, one member found some 'syn free' syrup you can put into milk that is lovely and really handy as I sometimes struggle for my HEX-A... and it's nice to be able to just drink a glass of milk that tastes sweet sometimes.

    Anyhow, good luck!

    Thanks, since i know i have a lot to loose i am aiming for a pound a week, so should loose the weight slowly over next 2 years, i was 13st 7lbs when i met my OH and i would like to get to that for my 25th birthday which is a year in December, im not thinking it as a diet but as a life change.

    I will keep on here and read the good tips plus post any new ones i find out! and post my weight loss!

    welcome!

    was the syrup Crusha? their sugar free milkshake syrup is free on both days and if you add milk and very low fat natural yogurt to it you end up with a drink like Yop :D

    Good luck with SW, I'm sure you'll do really well.

    I decided not to do the classes, partly because being a bloke I would have felt a bit left out and also because my work commitments often mean I have to travel around so I can't always guarantee to be around to make a class. And this forum is like being a member of a huge class anyway, you'll never be short of advice or support.
