I have been on slimming world numerous times in the last 10 years and lost a bit then failed, i have now been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and am on medication for it so now i know why i have been unable to stick to it over the years.

Looking forward to getting to know you all and get and give advice

Hi Lisa,

Welcome back to SW :D I could never get on with WW either as I always felt restricted and had a hard time counting absolutely everything i ate. it's so much easier to have free foods and only have to measure certain bits as well as not being restricted. Have a fantastic first week, look forward to seeing how you get on.
