    Make proper use of flexi-sying - it saves a lot of guilt and so with it, the consequential despair of falling off the wagon.

    Don't eat with the television on. It helps you concentrate on your meal and recognise if you are full BEFORE you have finished the plate.

    Have lots of VARIETY in your meals so you never get bored and fall off the wagon.

    There's an infinite number of recipes online and many odd looking fruits in the shops. Try them all :D

    Believe in the power of free foods.

    Slimming World is not a diet, it's a way of life.

    Identify what your danger points are and plan in advance for what you will do when that time comes

    If you dont it is far too easy just to revert to habit and fall off the wagon

    Measure yourself at the start of your journey as well as weighing yourself.

    This isn't my suggestion it's just a catchy way to remember a couple of previous suggestions : "Before you bite it, write it!"

    Now it's my go hehe ...

    "Don't put too much pressure on yourself"

    - We all have off moments/meals/hours/days. If you fall off plan don't beat yourself up, don't try to recover any damage you may (or may not) have done. Just get right back on plan, as if nothing had happened. Yeah of course you might not lose weight that particular week, but you'll know why you didn't. You'll also know you saved yourself from a possible total meltdown and a much bigger gain. And you'll know that you have set yourself up for another loss the following week. None of us got as big as we are overnight, and we won't lose it all overnight either. It's all about the bigger picture.

    Oops, more than one line, sorry ;)

    There's no "CAN'T" with Slimming World. If it's free you can eat it, if it's synned you can choose to eat it, and if it's neither it's not edible...
