    Hi all,

    Joining up again! Can't find/remember my previous username so fresh slate with this one...

    On Slimming World and loving it! :winner:

    Did Cambridge Diet before - was good but found it incredibly hard to stick to... started, re-started WW countless times, never got past the first month - all the counting did my head in, and I fell off the wagon too easily... :eek: Loved Atkins but again missed my fruit/vegetables, and found it hard to maintain.

    For years I was at 9.5 stone and never appreciated it(!) :sigh: Then after my son was born 13 years ago my weight just shot up... and I've been battling it ever since.

    My best weight loss record ever was 2 stone... one I'm about to surpass with SW, I'm 2.5lb away from this and hoping to lose more!

    Wish me luck!
    :)

    Good luck.... you're clearly doing amazingly well already:D

    I started on SW 8 weeks ago and have to say I think it's a great plan.....as have fallen off the wagon long before this on any other diet I've tried...

    Hi BouncyBikerGirl/BBG :)

    I am still reading the site - loads good advice in the Slimming World section! I think the chumminess comes from regular posting so lets preserve! ;-D

    I lost a total of 4.5lb in my first month on SW as I struggled to get my head around it and it took me weeks to cop on to it... then lost an amazing 11lb in my 2nd month... (cos I was doing it properly!) so give yourself time.

    Important advice I got (and didn't heed at first) was not to starve myself - if I'm hungry eat... eat as much free foods as I like and make sure to have 1/3 superfree/speed options on my plate at every meal.

    I'd go easy on exercise til you get hang of diet - you may give up too easily if you are struggling with both. Just MHO really... I'm doing very little exercise but have to start doing more as now I've almost 2 stone gone - the weightloss is slowing down dramatically...

    And stay off the scales... just focus on enjoying your new food choices - getting weighed once a week is enough as you'd be despondent if those scales aren't moving fast enough and end up giving up... (I know I have!)

    Good luck
