    Hi everyone.

    I am new to this and I joined SW on Tues Evening but i am sure im doing something wrong as i dont feel like i am on a diet... I am eating more than i would have normally, just not crisps, chocolate and rubbish.

    I am dreading Tuesday because i cannot see how i am going to lose weight whilst eating so much.

    Has anyone else felt like this on starting or is it just that i am doing something wrong.

    Thanks everyon

    This is perfectly normal Hun. Just continue to read your books, follow the plan 100% and you will be surprised come next weigh in.
    Welcome and good luck!
    The best thing about SW is that you can eat when you want and still loose weight!

    EVERYONE feels like that the first week or two. You can eat so much that it cant possibly be a diet, right?

    But it is, and its a VERY good way to show how just subtle changes in the way we eat can make a massive significant difference to our weight and our overall health.

    If you arent sure that you are "getting it right", start a food diary in the food diary section and people can help you to make sure you are getting the balance right, but the results WILL speak for themselves.

    Congrats on picking an awesome way to lose weight healthily and safely!

    I nearly made myself a badge for work, because they know I do SW and can't believe I can eat as much as I do and lose weight.

    I love SW!

    Loads of people at group say that they eat more than they ever did - it's just more healthy and balanced. One girl this week was really worried about her first week, and she lost 8lbs. Not everyone gets such big losses in the first week, but some do even though they're eating more :) x

    I've been doing SW for two (almost three) weeks now and I certainly eat more than I ever did! But I have lost weight. It's amazing really, but making the right choices and ditching the junk really does pay off.

    I bet you'll be really surprised come WI day. Good luck and keep us posted on how you do,

    I've been doing this for about 6 weeks now, joined group for 3 and I still think I'm going to have a gain when I get on the scales. I eat way more than I used to, but like others have said, it's not junk food. I eat little and regularly now and I'm still dropping the pounds, I love it :D

    It is indeed a fab diet plan. Doesn't feel like a 'diet' at all. You can see how you could eat like this for life - it's that easy. I went to weight watchers for four months last year and lost two stone. I came off plan though when I went into hospital for a major op, and ended up putting almost all the weight back on. The problem was I had felt deprived whilst on plan so went mad when I came off. Don't feel at all deprived on SW though! It's fab!

    Hi to everyone who answered my thread.. a big thank you.

    I am anxiously waiting for the first WI tomorrow night (Tues). I have got rid of my own scales as I know i tend to be on them everytime i pass the bathroom.... and it would put me on a downer if i have put on..

    i am just hoping anf keeping my fingers crossed that I have lost ----- ive followed everything i should be doing and i am personally responsible for any fruit or tomato shortages hahahaah

    seriously i am really worried about tomorrow night but will have to wait and see what happens

    thanks again

    Hey Tishy,
    I've got everything crossed for you. Make sure you let us know how you get on. Just a suggestion - try not to put too much emphasis on the number on the scale from week to week though. One girl this week at our class lost 1lb in her first week, but decided to stick with it, and lost 9lbs in her second week :) sometimes our bodies are strange, but following SW WILL get results (and it's so much fun).
    I'll be checking back after tomorrow night x

    Hey Tishy, I felt like you the first time i tried this diet. My friends kept going on and on about SW and how they could eat loads and i just thought 'how on earth can you lose weight eating so much?' But thought well what have i got to lose? Tried the diet for the first week and tested the 'eat as much of the free foods as you like rule.......in for a penny in for a pound, and i just didn't believe you could eat so much and still lose. However in my first week i lost 7lbs!!! I nearly fainted in shock!! How could i lose 7lbs and have eaten so much!? But as some of the others have said - its not how much you eat, but the food choices you make. Stick with it, i'm sure you'll see a reduction at WI. GOOD LUCK!!
