    Hey everyone,

    Another newbie here - used to do Weight Watchers but after losing a stone, I put it all back on, and more :(

    So I'm trying SW now as the Extra Easy plan seems to have a lot of the things I love to eat, as the free food. It's just taking a bit of getting used to, knowing how to work out syn values and things.

    Looking forward to working it all out, and hopefully dropping the 5st (eek) I need to lose!

    Welcome to the forum. Have you joined a SW class or just doing it yourself?

    Going it alone for the moment, although we have a work weigh-in for us all who are trying to lose weight - a kind of 'The Biggest Loser' but giving cash to charity which is cool. Was going to head to a class but the support here is probably better than that, so I'm going to keep as I'm going at the moment :)

    Do you have copies of the books from SW or just going off advice? Might have a spare food optimising book if you need it. Let me know

    I've got the food optimising book from my friend who joined recently - It's the green coloured one so I think it's the more recent version...thanks for the offer though, :D
