    Hi all, my name is Lisa, age 29 and yet again i begin my Slimming World journey tomorrow morning and am looking forward to it :) I have been a member of this site for a while and been following ww been in recent weeks have fallen off the wagon because i have been hungry, so decided to come back to good old sw :D

    (i will record my weight tomorrow although its probably more than when i started ww!! :eek:)

    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.
