Hello and huge welcome to the forum.
congratulations on your forthcoming wedding :D Its my wedding anniversary next tuesday (14 years ).
I am doing slimming world, i jumped on the scales and it said 13st 5lb :mad::mad: ( i was heavier than my dad ) so i took the bull by the horns and joined on 12th february 2011 and have far lost 3st 7lb, ( 7lb to target ) and feel so much healthier and can look in the mirror and sometimes like what I see!! :8855:
Good luck with what you decide to do and stay in touch

Well good luck with sw, you dont say how much you wanna loose!!
I have a trick that works for me................. IF i want a biccy/ choclate, crisps etc, i think do i want this or be slim? 96-97% biccy goes back in the packet. And tomorrow im going out for a meal for my wedding anniversary in a brand new size 10 dress, that i didnt have to try on today cos i knew it would fit. That is is the most brilliant feeling that i have had since i started my weight loss journey.It makes the no changes worth while :D:D:D

WW is a good diet, Ive lost weight on it before. I did toy with the idea of doing it again but Ive got young children so i find SW fits in easier with family life as you dont have to weigh anything & only need to count syns. i like the wedding dress picture idea, i may have to use that one myself. Hoping to book ours up in the next month or so, what month are you getting married? we are going for August x

Good luck with ww, i tried that for 2 weeks, but i found it very hard and i was starving hungry all the time, not good!! sw works well for me cos i dont weigh anything and i like potatoes and pasta (not together)!! The only thing i have to watch is my syns and A/B choices
Good luck loosing weight and with the wedding plans

Congratulations on your wedding and well done to everyone who has posted who has managed to lose weight!!! I followed slimming world for a while and lost 2 stone in just over 4 months. I prefer slimming world because I get really hungry and its great that you know there are certain free foods that you can have unlimited amounts of. It's also easier since I have other people around me at home who are not following any diet (makes it a teeny bit difficult when there's lots of biscuits around and I'm trying not to eat the lot!!).

Good luck with the WW and keep us updated!

The best way to lose weight is by doing it eating the foods you like and the activities you love. I'm not a gym person either, but I lost my weight doing one of my favorite things in the world...dancing! As well as eating foods that don't taste like cardboard, like cheese cake, roasted chicken, pizza, etc. The key factor is, everything in moderation...
