    Well I finally decided to give Slimming World a go. I lost weight 4 years ago for a wedding using weight watchers online, but once the wedding came and went the weight came back. Since then I've halfheartedly lost and gained 7lbs. But I've 3 children so want to do this for them as well as me. We have a holiday booked for 3 weeks in 14 weeks time, so the time has come to do something about it. I am doing slimming world online so not attending a group, so am hoping by blogging my weeks here it will keep me on track. (Knowing other people can see it!) :ashamed0005:

    I started online last Monday (7th April) and lost 7lb in my 1st week. I couldn't believe I could loose that while eating so much!! :D
    (One of the reasons I'd not tried slimming world before - as I could never understand how you could loose weight while eating - a diet to me was cutting down on everything, not enjoying lovely meals!)

    Well I am really enjoying this and getting back to cooking. It may take longer but I don't think I've took anything out of the freezer apart from veg!


    Start weight: 13st 9lb
    Week 1: 13st 2lb

    Well feel a bit deflated today. Always dread school holidays as husband is off too. Def feel like I have overeaten the past few days and know I'm not going to have a loss on Monday like I had my 1st WI. Scales just don't seem to be shifting :confused:. I'm thinking of doing red and green days instead of extra easy. Does anyone have a preference to the days they do?

    Looks good to me, 7 lbs is great for your first week! I find red and green works best for me and rarely have a extra easy day as I'm used to the two healthy extras now. X

    Thanks Rosierose123 :)

    I think red and green may be the way forward. Having 2 HEXa and B seems much better. Fingers crossed for Monday - Although am going to Disneyland Paris and Paris with the kidstill Fri so hoping all the walking will burn off some calories.

    Don't seem to be doing well at all. I haven't put weight on but don't seem to be loosing either. My 14week countdown is now just 6weeks :cry:
    I think I may try success express? Last night I gave in and ate pizza and some wine. Then some biscuits :sign0007: It was late and really should have just ate tea the same time as the kids.
