I started Slimming World on Thursday. Going good so far. I currently weigh 17.2st and hoping to get down to around 14st by beginning of August.

Getting married in August and hoping to look good - I have always fluctuated with my weight and finding it harder and harder to shift.

The appeal of Slimming World is that it is something you can contionue after your target is reached. I have tried Lipotrim and P90X and whilst they work in the short term the weight has gone back on.

Hey Chunkwana, good to see another male on here looking to give SW a go. It sounds as though we're a similar weight and have a similar goal. Good luck to you mate. I'll be watching with interest!

I've added you as a contact as well Chunkwana. It'll definitely be useful to track others around the same weight on the same diet. I weighed in today and lost 4lbs so very pleased with that. Good luck with your weigh-in on Thursday.

I'm getting married in Aug too- 25th to be exact, so wanting to lose weight for similar reasons but (more importantly) want to keep it off! I'm a thursday weigher too so we can compare weight loss and wedding photos :)

Good luck for tomorrow x

Good effort mate! 7lbs is excellent. I've got my WI tomorrow and I've been reasonable strict over the last week. Fingers crossed I see a good loss too.
