Hello! :wave_cry: I have been lingering around the forum all week, fishing for ideas as I find my way around the slimming world plan, which I started on Monday. I subscribed on line for slimming world as this sort of thing usually works best for me. I subscribed on line to WW in the past and lost 60lbs (sadly 7 years ago and I put 40lbs back on). When I've tried classes before I found myself being creative with excuses for poor weeks and wrongly, feeling like it was my leaders fault that I wasn't being successful. When I'm on my own, there's no-one else to blame, no where to hide..... So I weighed in on Monday and stuck to the plan all week. I'm changing my weigh in day to Saturday. This works best for me. Yesterday, I started thinking about what the result might be. I realised, I haven't really felt like I've been on a diet. Sure, I've eaten less chocolate and crisps but whilst my lunches have been different but I've never felt deprived. I've been able to eat between meals (free food or counted syns) but I thought, this can't have worked. I decided that if I'd lost 2lbs I'd be happy. 3lbs and I'd be delighted. Today, I weighed in and I've lost 5lbs! I'm shocked and thrilled and now I'm excited. I know there will be tough days and weeks ahead but IF I can lose the weight I want to and eat like this, I know I can do it.
