    Hi everyone! I've been following the Slimming World diet for the last few months and initially did lose about 3 pounds... but in recent weeks I seem to have gained it all back! So I don't think SW was for me. I have in the past done WW and have lost about a stone! I just thought I'd try out another diet as I did find that with WW I was often hungry.... but I really need the portion control! So I'm back as I know it is successful!

    I don't expect to lose anything between now and the New Year, but thought I may aswell set myself up a routine to try to stick to until it becomes a full on diet in January! So I'm going to try to stick to it as much as I can.

    I have previously been a member of WW online but sadly this time around I can't really afford the membership so I'm hoping this site will help motivate me and educate me on all the new pro point values! It's also really good to see what other people eat on a day to day basis, this helps me plan out my weekly meals!

    I'm aiming for a stone loss between now and March... I think it's kind of achievable.... but half a stone would be great if I don't manage that! Mind you I'll be happy to lose anything right now!

    Hiya, your doing really well! Well done! I've previosly done this diet after I had my baby but only lost about 6lbs! My head wasn't in the right place! I then moved to the Cambridge diet and lost 2st! Now I want to eat food haha so I'm back and tomorrow will be my 1st WI back!

    Do u feel less bloated etc???

    21lbs to goal

    Thank you :)

    I can imagine you would lose a lot on the Cambridge diet from what I've heard it's quite a tough diet! I think WW will definitely work for you, it just takes time, which is the best way! I love the flexibility to be able to eat what you like!

    I do feel less bloated today, I think on SW I was having massive portions! But I suffer with IBS so I do get bloated quite often :(

    Good luck for your weigh in tomorrow! I'm sure you'll see results :) x

    I had a mid week scale hop today and it was nice to see a lb off! Been fluctuating up to 11st3lbs lately but it's currently saying 11st 03/4lbs, so that's good! Let's hope I don't have a binge fest this weekend..... My dad is back from America to visit tomorrow so he'll be ordering lots of takeaways and I also have a Christmas meal out on Sunday! Will try not to eat too much! Will stick to it on Sat religiously!

    After a fab Christmas and new year and an unwelcome addition of 3lbs I'm back on my WW diet! I turn 30 in March so I'm hoping to get down to about 10st7lbs by then! So I really need to keep up the will power!

    One big problem is the stash of chocolate I have collected from gifts... fills up a whole storage box! It's out of site so hopefully I won't think about it too much... and I'll probably have one little thing a day to keep me going. Like a single chocolate! :/

    CURRENT WEIGHT..... 11st2.5lbs

    Breakfast: OSS 3pp with 1 tbsp Golden Syrup 1pp

    Snack: Apple, kalken choc rice cake 2pp

    Lunch: Tuna Light lunch 7pp, muller light 2pp, cheese 2pp

    Snack: Jaffa bar 2pp

    Dinner: Omelette 4pp with veg, tomato sauce 1pp, BNS chips, Salad, extra light mayo 0pp


    No doubt I'll have a snack later which will probably go into my weeklies!

    Well the fist day on the diet was a bit of a failure due to fainting!! Only from a tiny but deep cut from preparing tea. The sight of blood doesn't tend to make me squeamish, i think I thought a little too much about how deep it had gone and then i just went!
    Due to the fainting episode I ate quite a few sweet things to regain my strength! Still feeling bad for it today, I don't know why, I can't remember banging my head but I feel really unusual. I don't know if I'll fully stick to the plan today... I'll see how I feel!

    Breakfast: OSS 3pp 1 tbsp Golden syrup 1pp

    snack: Alpen light 2pp

    Lunch Wrap 4pp, cheese 1pp, ham 1pp, ww yog 1pp

    snack: apple, yog 1pp

    Dinner: Hairy Dieters Korma 8pp with rice 4pp


    ww dessert 5pp

    plus choc and sweets! ooops. I think I need to start over again already!

    Hey Hun, how are you getting on? I'm 30 in August this year and I'm determined to get to goal by then!

    Hey hun,

    Oh I really am! I'm not eating as much as I did over Christmas but still picking at things. My stomach definitely expanded over the festive period! Need to get used to not eating as much! The meals are reasonably healthy, but its the snacking that puts me back! I do find I need to stick to it religiously for the scales to move! I went through the habit of weighing myself every day, always deflated me when I weighed the same! I try to do it only once a week now haha.

    How is your diet going? x

    Rachel1903 Well-Known Member

    Hi Mets!

    Thank you for your message. I'm slowly starting to get back on track.... finding it hard with all the extra chocolate I have around the place! I seem to eat well at work and then I get home and pick at things! I know once I get into the routine I'll be fine :)

    Do you have a diary on here? Will have to have a look! Fingers crossed for the both of us to reach goal by our 30th! My goal is to lose about 10lbs - 1 stone.... But I only have about 9 weeks to do it! So I think the 10lbs is more optimistic....
    I will extend the goal target to August after that as I'm visiting my parents in America!
