    hey all :) i want to loose a stone and i've recently started to slimming world diet. It has only been five days since i've been on it, and i have noticed i am eating loads more than i normally would because i am hungry- but it is all 'free foods'. i find this really strange for a diet; so, is this normal? does slimming world actually work? especially if i eat loads? :)

    I think it works! I joined SW about 9 weeks ago and I've already lost 2 stones 5.5 lbs. I've never been able to stick to any diet for longer than 2 weeks so I am chuffed about this. I think SW works perfectly because you are not restricted to any food. It's just the way you cook the meal you need to watch out for. You can have burger and chips, a fry up, fish and chips, curry... and still lose weight. It's do-able. It's enjoyable. It's great! isn't it?

    Week 1-4: 17.5lbs Week 4-9: 15.5lbs

    Oh dont worry too much lily!

    My first week all i did was eat! and I dreaded my weigh in! when I hopped on I had lost a good chunk of weight, but I was heavy to start with!

    It took me 6 weeks to get used to eating so much and losing weight!!

    GL for weigh in!

    I almost find the harder days are when I eat less, I need to remind myself to eat, especially breakfast. My husband can't believe how much more I have eaten in the four weeks since I started, and 8lbs have come off with relative ease. I love this - so much easier than WW!

    If money was donated to charity everytime someone asked "can i really eat this much and still loose weight?" just before their first weigh-in who then goes home to find that they have lost - there'd be a very rich charity out there somewhere... :)

    I was the same (and still am sometimes - even after nearly 23months on the plan) - my first week - i ate loads - though never deviated from plan, and always had my 15syns. Thought i may have lost 1 or 2 lbs when i got on the scales. Lets just say - i lost a lot more then that - a whole stone had gone. When i looked down at the scales and saw the same "8.5lbs" - i was disappointed - i thought i had maintained. Then the weigh-in lady gasped and said "you'd lost a stone". I was flabbergasted.

    OK, that's the more extreme end of the scale of first week weight loss - and there's no two ways of putting it - i had a lot to loose. but yes - you can eat loads (my plates where piled HIGH) and loose weight. Over time the appetite does come down and you will find yourself naturally eating less anyhow.

    Enjoy and hope you have a good result at weigh in.
