    Hello everyone!

    I'm switching from atkins to sw to get rid of my last stone and a bit. I've done sw before but not for about 8 years so i've just gone through the book again.

    Lots of lovely recipes on here, v excited to start tomorrow!

    What are your average weekly losses? I do exercise but it's never made any difference to my weight loss lol, more trying to tone up than anything (not happening :sigh:)

    Anyway, and tips you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks alot,

    Claire

    Hi Claire, welcome over to SW - well done on your weightloss so far - I'm only on week 2 and loving it so far, my food is so varied! From what I've read, most people seem to have a big enough loss week one and it steadies to about a 2lb average. But others who have been around longer will have a better idea!

    You've done so well already, 4lb in a week....WOW!

    Are you doing red/green or extra easy? I remember last time i did better with red days than green, dont think carbs agree with me lol

    I'm doing extra easy - to be honest, I'm doing it online and haven't found much detail on what green and red days are!

    Might be worth doing red days to start with if you are moving over from
    Atkins - then you can slowly add in carbs so your body doesn't hang on to them too much.
