    Hi All

    Well I'm starting Slimming World again tomorrow after 4 years of piling on the pounds since I was on it last!

    I know it will work if I stick to it because I lost 3 stone last time on mostly red days but I just seem to lack the willpower at times.
    I cant get to meetings due to recent redundancy so spending money is out of the question but hopefully being on here will give enough motivation to stick to it without cheating!

    I found all my books except the food optimising so if anyone can help with letting me know what the healthy a's & b's are and the portion sizes that would be great.
    Also if anyone has any tips on how to keep away from the bad stuff and avoid snacking that would be greatly appreciated!

    Hey there Karen and :welcome: to the forums hun - you've come to the right place for motivation and support - we all have those lack of willpower days and its great to be able to come on here and admit to it without the threat of being judged.

    Anyway, sounds like you really had the hang of SW the last time with losing so much, so I'm sure that you will do just as brilliantly this time around too - wishing you lots of luck and hope to see you posting on the forums! :) X

    PS. Have a look in the SW section on here as I'm sure it will be of great help to you

    Hopefully it will work again this time. I've been looking round the SW section and it seems really good. I might start posting my food diaries after the 1st week so people can give me any tips.
    I will be doing a proper weigh in tomorrow at boots. The one on my profile was from last week at doctors but I want to use the same scales each week. Thanks for the support. See you round the forum.

    Hi there Karen, welcome back to the best weight loss plan in the universe (I'm biased hehe!) Are you going to stick to the red & green or are you going to try giving extra easy a shot? Hope you get as much out of Minimins as I have over the past year!! It's fantastic and people are always here to help! Just give us a shout whatever you want to know! Be sure to look at peoples' food diaries for inspiration too and even write your own!XXXXX
