Slightly Bemused Newbie!!

Hi there everyone. I joined Slimming World last week on the Extra Easy Plan. Its working out pretty well at the moment and my partner is joining in. I am really chuffed that I stumbled across this site, it looks perfect for motivation and encouragement. Its taking me a while to get use to everything. I was struggling for ages trying to upload a photo but I think you have to post a certain amount before you are allowed to do certain things.

I have lost weight before on Weightwatchers but I needed to do something different and get motivated again. I am fed up of being the fat one and I promised myself a new pair of boots this winter but I'll be damned if can find any that fit me and I will not buy a pair from a special website for people with fat legs - I just won't do it!! So here goes - I would like to lose 4st and ideally lose it before next summer. Hopefully I will get to know a few people in the process of losing weight.

Bye :)

Hi Miss Cookie

Totally hear you about the boots prob. That was one of the final things that kicked my backside into dieting gear - went to get my usual 4 or 5 pairs of winter boots only to find I couldn't do them up!

In the first couple shops, I told myself it was the shops being mean and cutting them smaller this year but as I moved through all the shops in town, it dawned on me that it wasn't the shops - it was my big fat calves!!

All the best with your weight loss!
