    Hello everyone!:wave_cry:
    Im new to this forum and tought id say hello!!
    I am planning on joining Slimming World on Thursday evening (eeek) and wondered if anyone had some nice words of encouragement for me!!
    My friend joined 2 weeks ago and lost 6.5 lbs in her first week!! So I thought id join her!!
    I want to loose (or rather i need to loose!!) around 8 stone...scary or what!(Thats my main goal)
    And i want to be down to a dress size 14 by June, so any top tips or recipes would be greatly appeciated!!
    Can i just say im a real picker so any free picking foods would be great!!! andstuff that i can eat at my desk at work!!!
    Im looking at doing the extra easy - think it will fit my lifestyle best.

    Looking forward to hearing from you and making some new friends that are in my boat!!

    Good luck!!

    I'm much of a nibbler / picker than an eater of big meals and I find SW perfect - I can eat whenever I want and never have to worry about having met my calorie or points limit.

    Hope it suits you.

    Good luck on Thursday, the first step is the hardest. SW is great if you like your food. I lost 5 1/2 lbs on my first week.

    HI I'm new too and have lots of weight to lose also. I like slimming world because I like to have a large evening meal so it suits me that you can eat free foods in larger quantities if you wish. If your a picker I would keep lots of your fave syn free or syn counted foods handy in the fridge. I always have chopped fruit in a tupperware box, some pasta ready made and a tomato herby sauce. If I have the munchies that usually resolves them lol.
    Good luck with your plan.

    Hi there and a big welcome!!!
    Im the same, I like to graze during the day at work, so come armed with heaps of fruit, Mullerlite yoghurts, ham (free on a red day), chicken slices (free on red) and loads of other bits and bobs...if you get the chance have a look at the diary pages on this forum, there are loads of hints and tips that you can gain from it.

    Good luck with your journey.
