    Hi all, new here & excited to loss the weight!!

    Was due to have gastric bypass surgery as i need this to loose my weight inable to have my leg/knee surgery again (failed last few times & now weight is a problem)

    Well it came 5days before surgery and i realised i really didnt want it, i was scared.
    So here i am, on slimming world diet willing to loose the weight!

    Roughly i need to loose around 6 stone. Already done 8lb in my first week so would be brill if the weightloss continued like that!

    Anyone want to be a SW buddy then id be up for that :)

    Jess xx

    Welcome and good luck with your journey.

    The thought of a gastric bypass has always scared me too. It does look like a very drastic and permanent measure but it clearly gets results.

    Losing it on SW might make you feel a little better lifted when you finally reach your goal.

    I am on Weight watchers and am into my 3rd week and it is excellent, so I hope SW has the same results for you.

    Well done on the first 8 lb. What I am doing, is trying to out do my result every week. I am such a competative person that I find competing with myself will give me less reason to quit :)

    Good Luck and WELL DONE!!! xxx

    hey jess, congrats on your 8lb so far, amazing! a good loss in the first week really spurs you on, i've lost a stone so far on SW and its been 5 weeks, i think :S lol i'm hoping to lose another 8 stone i think, but trying not to focus on the huuuuge pic and instead each pound/stone as it goes. you'll find so much support and encouragement on this forum, but hey, so if you ever need anything, just shout! :)

    Wow, really well done. This is my first time on SW although I've tried them all over the years , except the vlc diets. I know it's going to take me ages to lose what I want to but I don't mind along as it comes off. Was gutted my first week as I only lost 1lb but did lose 4.5 last week. Weigh in tomorrow so we will see what this week brings. Hoping for 1.5 lbs but expect it'll be 1/2 lb knowing my luck.

    Keep up with your great loss & let us know how it's going. )

    Some people are different for loss. My friend lost 2lb the first week. I lost 8lb. But her 2nd week lost 4lb.
    Thank I will do. Good luck on your journey x
