    Hi guys have been on lipotrim for a few weeks, lost 19lb :D then had bbq to celebrate my daughters 2nd birthday.......its just gone downhill from there so I have really struggled to get back on track. :mad:
    I have a lot going on in my life at the moment, including splitting from M .....he is still living here until he finds somewhere to live but we have things to sort first..... :mad:

    I really need to lose weight but trying to get back on LT was awful ...:cry:...the worst headaches iv had for ages.......so here I am going to give SW a go.......going to the same class as Karen so hopefully a bit of friendly rivalry will spur us both on.... :p

    I had a quick peek at Karens book a few weeks ago and it has changed quite a bit since I did the diet years ago......with hex a and b....and EE .....omg :eek: any hints or tips as to what I can expect are welcome......

    Forgot to post my start weight and measurements from my weight loss journey so her goes:

    Weight 23st 13lbs
    Bust: 54"
    Waist: 50"
    Hernia/stomach: 70"
    Hips: 63"
    L.thigh: 35"
    R.thigh: 36"
    L.calf: 19 3/4"
    R.calf: 20"
    L.arm: 18"
    R.arm: 19" ________

    Hi Sonya...

    This is my 1st time on SW -tried all the other -including Lipotrim... ekky thump that aint for the faint hearted is it...(don't get me started on the constipation and mouth like a badgers bum:eek:) NEVER again:8855:

    Im sure Karen and you will make a great team and you will soon be knocking those lbs off.(well done on your loss so far too)
    The main thing I would say about SW is "trust the plan" -when I first started I was constantly thinking "have they got that right? can I have that -really?" - after the 1st week I realised that this is a way I can see me n hubby eating easily -for the rest of our lives:Dwe are both loving it:D
    Hope things in your life settle down for you soon! Look forward to popping and seeing what you are up to :D

    Has anyone done the EE plan and lost......if so is the loss better than just a green or red day/week....? Just trying to find out what has been working better for those already on the diet, so I have some knowledge when the time comes.

    Forget you've done SW before and treat it as a new experience. And I started on EE and didn't look at the other 2 plans at all until I got my head around EE. And yes it does work. There was a lady joined the week before me and had her first weigh in on the night I joined and lost 17 pounds by sticking to it perfectly. Wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. And she had less to lose than me.

    Good luck. And remember to count all the syns and write everything you eat down

    Oh I will I so want to do this....How have you found EE .......it is rather daunting though, after not having to choose what to eat.....as there are only 3 flavours on LT and they are all accounted for in the packs....so you cant go over limit .....think I will have to poke round the SW forums for ideas......I am a very fussy eater.....lol

    Slimmers World, Extra Easy
    Hi Sonkie

    I love the Extra easy plan, i have found this time so much easier than years ago when it was just red/green. Theres nothing really that you cant eat, but like someone else suggested, forget everything you previously knew about sw and start afresh when you join the class! best of luck, look fwd to the witnessing the battle between you and karen!!! xx

    Just popped in to say welcome and best of luck. I couldn't even consider the VLCDs, food is a passion. You'll find it a lot easier to enjoy food AND lose weight if you stick to the do's and don't's of SW. Look forward to a wonderful log of your journey over the months to come.

    Good luck with SW tomorrow - you'll pick up lots of hints and tips - and I find reading others diaries on here really helped me get my head around it all. Extra Easy is working for me and I'm a bit scared to be honest to change to red/green - as I like just looking in the fridge or freezer and making a choice on the spot. Good on you though for getting a good head start on Lipotrim - I couldn't do that I can't stand those milkshake things for a start.

    Good luck for your first class Sonya - interested to hear how you get on on EE. I'm the same as you, just started back on SW after a few years and can't really get my head round EE - seems too good to be true!

    Just think, if you and Karen literally whup each other's butts, the exercise would surely qualify you for a body magic sticker!!!!!
