    I'm only on day 2, so not experienced enough with sf to give you any tips, but will be interested to see what comes up on this thread.

    Good luck with your weightloss!

    hello, well done for starting up again... That's the hardest part. I've been doing slimfast for about a year and a half, well on and off!

    First time I lost 2 stone which has stayed off bar 5 ibs, Christmas chocs.
    I'm back on it and would like to lose more then before. I have a wedding reception to host in July so it's good motivation.

    I now realize I'll never completly come off slimfast, I'll need it to maintain. What really helps me is knowing I'm not alone, and I log on here everyday to read the posts. We can all do it together, keep posting it helps x

    Well, ive been on SF since Sat, so im no expert lol but i will say that ive lost over 4lbs since sat (woooh!) and although the 1st couple of days were hard its not that bad now, dont get as hungry as i did at the start.
    Really like the shakes too, which is wierd as i dont actually like milk lol..AND the shakes are 1/2 price in Sainsburys for the 6 pack so its £3 ish for 6! Which makes it ace too if you shop there!

    Good luck..x

    Hi St Francis I have had a bit of a problem with this site, I seemed to spend ages looking for the slim fast threads by scrolling through all the diets, seem to have sussed it out now though. Please don't give up, can you find an alternative to the soup, have you tried the meal bars? The chocolate is especially nice.

    Try to stick with it, the end result will be more than worth it. Rememer we are all here for each other. I am only on day two and know I wouldn't stick to it without this support.

    Keep going and good luck

    It gets easier with practice!! Minimins.co/slimfast will bring you direct to the slimfast section rather than searching everywhere! Just sign in at the top and you'll be able to reply to stuff without too much problem...

    Its a handy site when ur feelig a bit demotivated cos so many people are in the same boat! Especially if you have a skinny other half who eats junk food infront of you and you need some encouragement!!

    Also, re soup, you're not mising out I wouldn't panic!!! They're foul!

    Hi I am on slimfast for the fourth time now. The first time I lost weight for my wedding. The second time I lost the weight following my son's birth - I lost 4 stone in 4 months. The third time was last year following the birht of my daughter (took me eighteen months to start dieting though) when I lost 44lbs and I am now back on it again and will be on it up until my wedding in August. As you can see I am hoping to lose another 2 stone or so.

    Good luck

    Hey hun, good luck with your weight loss journey. I'm a slimfast re-starter so haven't been on it long this time round but i'd suggest making sure you're drinking plenty of water (otherwise you can become a bit constipated) & make the most of your snacks when hungry (don't feel like you can't snack just because you're dieting)

    Slim Fast
    Hello! Been doing Slim Fast since November (with a significant break for Christmas), so not as expert as some but not a total beginner. I'm doing it quite slowly compared to others -- had lost a stone but put a bit back on. Hopefully by the weekend I'll be back down to over a stone though.

    Anyway, here are two things that have helped me.

    One is waiting until as late as possible in the day to have my first shake (because I'm less hungry in the morning, and it then reduces my urge to snack in the afternoon).

    The other is air-popped popcorn with salt. I LOVE popcorn, and this is a relatively low calorie treat. So I use up some snack allowance in the morning quite often with some popcorn and coffee. It's something I love eating anyway, so it makes me feel as if I'm not really doing a diet (even though eating popcorn and coffee every morning clearly isn't the actions of a normal, non-dieting person).

    Re: soup. Never tried the Slim Fast soups, and although I know that the Slim Fast food is designed to make sure you get a fair whack of nutrients, there are many other low calorie soups that are full of vegetables and protein and so on, so don't let it put you off.

    Good luck.

    Instead of a snack bar in the afternoon, I sometimes have a low cal cuppa soup, its nice, especially as its so nippy out and about! Sometimes chuck a couple of baked croutons too
