Extra Easy Newbie to Slimming World and Minimins

Hi All

My name is Polly and I live in Dublin, just joined Minimins and loving it so far.

Started Slimming world last week after 16 months on Atkins, lost 50 lbs very happy with that but its a very unforgiving diet and I wanted a change, lots of people here are getting great results with SW so I thought I would give it a go. Loving it so far, lost 2lbs in my first week which was amaziing as I had expected to put on a few pound with eating carbs again, thats what normally happens as every gram of carb holds a gram of water in your body so when you are not eating them you lose all the excess water.

I will write again soon and give you all a few more details about me, looking forward to getting some tips and information as I am not going to classes just doing SW by myself, got the book and a cookery book so hopefully I can do this. Need to lose another 50 lbs so I have a long road ahead of me but I'm confident I can do this.

Thanks for reading

Polly

Hi luv, dont be scared!! I have never felt more comfortable about my weight than in a slimming word meeting, everyone there is there for the same reason you are!! No one will judge or make fun of you and your weight will never be disclosed in front of any of the members, only what you lose or gain every week, and only if you are comfortable with it!! I promise you will never look back after tonight!! Good luck xxx

Still getting my head around it, not seeing much success on the scales but I suppose I have to be patient to allow my body to re adjust from Atkins.

Well stayed the same this week, but I'm not too disappointed as I had expected to put on a few pounds, too much birthday cake and Wine. Really going to be serious from today.

Setting my self a mini goal of 21 pound by easter, I've nothing much going on between now and then so should be able to do it.
