    Hi everyone,
    This is my very first post on any forum so I'm not so sure how it works. Any way I have a lots and lots of weight to lose (half of my body weight). Can anyone out there tell me if Slimming World is suitable for such a big loss. I have joined before and loss 19lb and 8lb. really have to do something as my health is really suffering.

    I am sure any slimming club is suitable for a big weight loss if you set your mind to it!! You have to really want to do it, if the will power is there you will do it!

    If you set your mind to it any thing will work. And if you are taking the tablets sw does work really well together.

    Good luck

    skinny fibre ,
    my mum and her partner have had the lap band surgery and the doctor has told them to only have 1 shake a day as 2 a day contains t much protein and will limit weight loss.

    not sure if this helps or not

    Am interested in how SW and Xenical work together as have been doing SW without taking pills but have a stock of the pills from before and am thinking of taking them again with SW. Do they really speed up the weight loss? Cheers

    i wouldnt say they speed it up. but they keep you eating right. and i do feel they have helped. (wether it be the weightloss side or just the fact ive not still eaten rubbish)
    you make choices to eat the right foods, and not go over bored....

    It's horrible when you do that isn't it - been there myself many times. I just hope I can exercise restraint when I go on holiday on 22/5 as it's 10 days all inclusive - going to try to do aqua aerobics each day, eat lots of fruit and only drink moderately and only in the evenings - would hate to put all have lost and possibly even more on as have done that before. Think having to go back to class will act as a good motivator as they are all fab!

    thats the only thing with all inclusive. ive just been to egypt... and i thought i ate well, but because you end up eating larger meals than your used to, and you have 3 of them a day. (plus drinks of a million fruit cocktails....) i put on 7.5lbs (plus a further 1.5lbs this week as either catchup or water retention)
    but the good thing is if you jump back on quickly it should come of a little easier!!!

    Well I will try my utmost to put on as little weight as possible. I thought the likelihood of them having gin & slim line tonic was slim so I know I'll probably end up on the wine but if I stay off cocktails and puddings, eat scrambled eggs or fruit for breakfast, pasta for lunch and try and have grilled meat and veg for dinner I might not do too badly. All sounds great doesn't it......and then there was reality lol. Will let you know how I did when I get back.

    i became addicted to ommlettes with ham, green peppers, mushrooms and cheese.
    i now have these often (just without cheese or get the really low fat weight watchers cheese or something)

    I like the ommelettes too but sometimes they seem to cook them with a lot of oil. It's the bread and butter that is usually my downfall but am not having any this time lol
