    Hi, welcome to minimims. Slimming world is great, you can actually eat when you're hungry and still lose weight. The plan takes a little getting used to, to start with, so any questions just ask. Are you getting help giving up smoking? Good luck x

    Well done Hun!!!

    I have never smoked, but my parents used to and I know how difficult it was for them to stop, so I admire anyone that tries. Not only you will benefit from it, but also your Daughter - although you dont need me to tell you that!
    As for the plan, my advice would be to prepare and plan, write everything down that you eat and before it goes into your mouth, find the syn value out first as in past experience foods that you think would be low in syns arent and you may go over your limit. If something has a measure, weigh it accurately, dont "guesstimate".

    Good luck and Im sure you will do well.

    I gave up smoking at the same time as joing SW, best thing I have ever done. I looked at like this: I'm making a change in my eating habits for the better, so I can make the best choices food wise, I might as well tstop smoking at the same time so I am not replacing copius amounts of fatty foods with cigs. First week = me, grumpy, couldnt sleep or go to the loo. Second week = happier, relaxed, richer me! Believe me it's worth the withdrawals.
    Wish you really good luck with the giving up smoking and SW. Your SW consultant will give you a leaflet if you tell her your giving up smoking too.
    You can do it, I have every faith in you!! xxx
