Hello fellow WeMITTS,

Have been dipping in and out of this site for a while now and have found the stories very inspirational! Especially this thread as it resonates so much with me...

I started SW five weeks ago and have lost 15 1/2 lbs, so it's going well so far. I have about 13 stone to lose... :eek:I've started and stopped so many other diets and weightloss thingamigiiggies but like your motto, I feel determined to do it this time! Something in me just feels different this time round...

Anyway as I said ye bunch are doing incredible and it's great to have others in the same boat to chat to who understand where I'm coming from and how I'm feeling...

Looking forward to getting to know ye and sharing the monumental journey ahead...:wavey:

PrincessSparklePants - love the name by the way!! - and congrats on your AMAZING weight loss!!!! Feeling a bit down this week, but have no idea why... I've been really good and stuck solidly to SW and food optimising every day. I'm like that - when I start I'm always gung-ho into it and 100% committed and then slowly but surely the motivation and willpower dies away and I start reverting to old bad habits. Hoping that won't happen this time...

I know with support and advice from each of you on here that if I do start sliding that ye'll help pull me back up again ;)

I get like that sometimes shiver, feeling down for no apparent reason. I'm doing SW as well and I had a little wobble about a month in, I think it was after the initial buzz wore off. It soon passed though.

When's your weigh in day?

Thank you lovely! :) You will be in the swing of things before you know it :D It does become 'the norm' and boring soon - especially when there's little else to 'learn' once you've got the first bit over and done with - but it is something to still keeping giving 100% to. I promise it's worth it :)

Like you and Dragon says, the buzz quickly wears off, especially when you're not getting the fake junk food endorphines all 'YOU ARE FEELING GREAT!' rushing round your body - it all takes time to wear off and, as those clever scientist people say - they do affect your mood so withdrawl must definitely affect your mood too. It's scary just what changes things inside for us!

Keep at it hun xx

Drag0nfly - well done for being able to go the SW online route. I wouldn't have the willpower to keep at it myself. I need the weigh in and the talk at the class to keep me in check!

Another Tracy - thank you. Another SWer! We've started off around the same time, so be good to have someone parallel with me :D

Morning all,

Just thought I'd check in. Had my WI last evening. Down 1lb so happy enough with that. Wasn't expecting anything much this week really as wasn't feeling the best and feeling a bit bloated. But I did get Slimmer of the Month which was a nice surprise!!

Must have a look at a few recipes and try a few over the weekend to try and mix things up a bit!

Any recommendations???
