    Hello & welcome to SW!

    I tried WW in the past & lost 7lbs in 14 months :( Never worked out why.

    I personally love SW, there's so much choice & I'm never hungry. You'll find plenty of support & info on here, these ladies (& a few gentlemen) are a great help. Good luck!

    Best of luck at your 1st SW meeting, mine was 2 weeks ago. Best decision I ever made was to go along.

    Thanks for all the support everyone! This site is brilliant for info and support, I think I will be on this quite a bit!! Glad to hear other people had similar problems with WW, just had my final WI with WW just to see if I put on anything, up a pound but not surprised with all the crap I ate over the weekend!! :cry:

    I love slimming world but one thing I will say is that you may lose motivation from time to time bit if you do the group, the consultant and this site is fantastic support. I lost motivation for the last 5 weeks but my consultant has always been there and helped me to keep my gain to a minimum, in 4 weeks I only gained 4.5lbs and although I put on a further 3.5lbs this week I did a 10k race on Sunday (my weigh in is monday) so am putting it down to water retention.
    Other than that I find menu planning the best way to keep motivation and stay on track (on my good weeks, lol) and try plenty of different meals.

    Well I bit the bullet last night and went to my first slimming world class, very impressed, could not believe how nice and supportive everyone was! Looks like I wont be doing much snacking! The syn points are quite high on all the things I like but this could be a huge positive!!! Cant wait to get started!! :)

    Snack all you want! Just choose fruit, veg or free foods :)

    Plus you'd be amazed how far your syn allowance goes!

    Good luck

    SW is great and the support on these boards is the best. join a challenge team for extra support and the body magic challenges are a real boost, i'm doing bronze and it has made me drag the bike out of the shed LOL
    Enjoy the journey- its part of living

    SW
    SW works SO much better for me than WW ever did - all that counting did my head in (I lost just under 50pounds on WW, lost the plot with it and put it all back on again). With SW I really feel that my eating habits and definitely my attitude to food has changed - the way the plan's structured has given me a much healthier attitude to food altogether and given me some of the headspace I needed to work out some of my food-related issues (I'm far from perfect, but I'm getting there ;) and I'm not battling myself this time around).
