So many times I have tried, so many I have failed and fallen straight off the wagon.....not just fallen but nose dived!

Today I start SW again, for me and for the last time. I dont want to spend the rest of my life hating my weight, shape and size, and doing nothing about it, but instead to be health, happy and have a better shape.

I have weighed in at 220lbs this morning - my heaviest in my life. Ideally I would like to get to 140lbs but that huge gap in numbers seems to me to be awfully big and I don't want that to put me off, so I am doing this in bite size chunks.

My first target will be 2.5 stones / 35lbs by Christmas eve.

I will post my food on here every day - somedays I will amend it in the evening, but generally have my meals planned so will put on first thing. I am very very much up for receiving comments - support - guidance - suggestions.....don't worry about offending me. Having a goal means I have to be thick skinned!! I will join some of the other SW boards, and I know I will ask lots of questions so please be patient with me!

Thank you and good luck! xx

Day 1

B - overnight oats (B)
L - Grapefruit, Jacket potato salad, cheese (A)
T - Bolognese with pasta - all free made with passata


S - milk for tea (skimmed) - will update when know how many teas I drink today!! (I am a proper teabag can drink 20+ a day so will have to curb this lol!!!)

Welcome. I started with similar weight to yourself 3 months ago and losing very slow which is fine as I am enjoying my meals and not eating rubish.
Good luck.

Popping by to say now Day 5, I haven't been sticking to slimming world by the book, but I have been eating only at meal times, no snacks in between other than melon, no alcohol, no sweets. No reason other than time and planning.

So far I have lost 4lbs. So I have had overnight oats for brekkie, lunch has been cheese salad with jacket and garlic and herb dressing, tea has been X and salad and dressing and jacket. I even had a bowl of Kelly's cornish ice cream. So it is very slimming world - but not worrying about the HEA /B or syns. Tonight for tea is new potatoes with butter dressing and lamb steaks.

Got another busy weekend coming up, and dental work next week so planning a couple of days of soup / rice pudding. Will get my head stuck into SW within the next few days and start sticking more to plan!

Thank you both :)

A further just short of 2lbs off this week - have waivered a bit both with sweets, wine and pizza!! Next week frantic things settle a bit so going to try to adopt the proper Slimming World route more and keep on that.

Good luck both x

Not been a good girl! Didn't weigh last week - was just busy busy busy. This morning at least I haven't put anything on since 2 weeks ago - have nt been feeling too good, have doused myself in jammy dodgers and other scrumptious but dreadfully naughty delights.

Am not going to meet my target for 10th Sept - would be a loss of 8.25lbs in 10 days and I will be happy if I manage to shed half of that. Have looked at a ladies only gym....it is more of an assisted machine type of thing - not toning tables - but if I can get shut of a bit of chunk and then have the confidence to join a proper gym then I will be happy. Will go for the induction and see what I think.

Will be focussing this week on eating only my meals and no snacks at all, reducing carbs as much as possible and eating and further to when we last spoke, I have knocked alchohol on the head altogether but still weaning down to diet drinks from sugar drinks - in fairness not got many of those but I do have a bottle of that old fashioned dandelion and burdock for TV tonight!! Drinking lots of NAS, tea with skimmed milk - my favourite drink - and soda / tonic waters.

Good luck all for this coming week xx
