    Hi all,

    my name is Becky, I am a 31 year-old single mum of one and a full time primary school teacher. I actually joined here in January but have been quietly reading others' posts and threads, not raising my head above the parapet to speak!

    I have recently re-joined SW, as I have been successful on this before. I am hoping to lose around a stone or maybe more, depending on how I progress... So far I have had a 0.5 lb loss followed by a gain of the same amount last week so I haven't exactly been the most successful! After a crazy weekend of breaking the diet again, however, I am back on it today with a vengeance! :character00115:

    Anyway, I look forward to meeting you all and swapping stories, successes and blips, recipes and tips! :talk017:

    Becky xx

    Hi becky!

    Sound as like you have lots of plates spinning in your life! Good luck with SW. I'm on cambridge diet which is very different. Most people don't understand this, but I actually find weight watchers/slimming works far more difficult that the restrictions if cambridge, lighter life etc. So well done for restarting (another brave thing to do) and best if luck!!

    Keep us updated with your journey! :)

    Hello there!

    Thanks for your message of support, very kind of you!

    Well I have previously succeeded on SW and I enjoy it so seemed logical to rejoin as I am wanting to lose at least a stone. Don't know much about Camridge Diet, I have to say, thought it was a meal replacement diet? Are you enjoying it anyway? Has it worked for you in the past?

    It is meal replacement, I'm finding it ok. It's my first time doing cambridge and I'm just a week in, so all any positivity and enthusiasm may decline as the weeks go on! Haha!

    Haha know how you feel, I have been like that with SW over the years!

    Being on here is very motivational though as reading other people's diaries and posts helps.

    We can do this!! xx

    Oh I don't know that one! Is it a meal replacement one? Or similar to SW and WW?

    Good luck to you in starting it anyway, that's the first step done now that you have decided you're doing it.xx

    Yes it's a meal replacement one as I want to lose quickly so I can get on with the really hard work of maintaining. I want to stop yo-yo ing once and for all!

    Think that is a good goal to have in mind, you sound like you know what you want and how to get there.

    Do you have to attend meetings for exante? Is there a weekly weigh-in? There is on SW and I have mine tomorrow, fingers crossed I have lost something despite a rather silly weekend! I have stuck on plan 100% since Monday but don't really feel like I have lost anything so am keeping my fingers crossed! xx

    There's no meetings with exante which is why I'm on here for moral support and I'm writing my blog again too. I have my fingers crossed for your weigh in!

    Good luck with SW! It worked for me last year until xmas when I stopped going and then started eating crap again :( I seem to lose and then gain the same two stone over and over! Not any more. I am determined to keep it off this time!

    I want know until Monday if it works for me. It's only my second day but I'm doing everything right. It's weird because you can eat unlimited amounts of free and super free food and iv always thought you had to starve yourself to loose weight lol you can still eat crap lol just count your syns ! I'm saving mine for vodka at the weekend lol x

    Hi Becky fellow classroom worker (hopefully following a meeting next week anyway) here! I'm rejoining slimming world following becoming engaged at Christmas and gaining weight. Haven't been to my first meeting yet but been following plan since Monday and rather than losing weight have apparently gained 1.5 lbs, which I know from the past is nothing to go off but I am gobsmacked about it all the same! But I realise things like this happens. Just stick with it and hopefully it will come right!

    Morning hollyjessica1986, nice to have another classroom worker on here haha! Congratulations on your engagement, what a lovely goal for you. :)

    Sorry to hear about your meeting at work and about your gain. I have done really well before by drinking lots of water and eating lots of superfree esp carrots and strawberries! Maybe give that a try? How have you got on in the week?xx
