Slimming World - will it ever work for me?


I've got a fab SW group and leader but the trouble is I'm not convinced this diet works (for me).

If I stick 100% I'm lucky if I lose 0.5lb or maintain, so nowadays at weekends I usually have a big curry blow out :cry:

I exercise like a loon!
I'll be 50 this year!
I have a mildly underactive thyroid!

So maybe these factors don't help!

I even joined Biggest Loser online but 1700 calories a day (counting fruit & veg also) left me with the shakes I was so hungry!

I lost weight years ago with Weight Watchers but it was hard work, wondering whether to give this another go and see what the pro points is all about....

I'm just at a loss and feeling really despondant, weight used to fall off me if I dieted for a few days ago, nowadays no matter what I eat or drink the scales will not budge under 11 stone. My Mum had a similar problem at my age - totally confused.com, any help or advice would be so appreciated, I really would love to believe SW will work for me like so many of you.....

Hi Fleurfeline,

I believe that SW can work for anyone. HOWEVER, I also think that although it works 'as is' for most people, there is the odd person that needs to tweak the plan a little bit to make it work (eg if you are eating too much free food such as 6-8 muller lights per day etc etc). Why not try posting a food diary to see whether people have any comments.

Good luck.
