    I started the SW plan last Thursday after a Christmas of excess. My first class is tomorrow. Was shopping with my friend at lunchtime and decided to buy some scales.

    Just stepped on them and I was shocked and horrified! I really need help with this. Is there Anyone else doing slimming world with a lot of weight to lose?

    Thanks guys! X x

    Hi guys, so I went on Wednesday and I was absolutely terrified but they are great! Finding it quite easy really, I'm mixing red, green and extra easy days.

    Had a night out last night and managed to stay within the syn limit (just).

    How are you guys getting on? x

    ive got the guts of 8 stone to lose here!!!

    Started on SW just before christmas :)

    Managed to maintain my weight (20 st give or take) since December! Havent been taking it seriously enough until this week.

    Going EE for a while til i get the full grasp of the plan, then i might try green or red!

    I find it harder to get the information for sw stuff compared to the old weightwatchers points system (what I was used to before joining) but finding the diet a LOT better now im getting into it properly :)

    Hope you are doing well with sw xxx

    Hi all,
    I weighed in last night to find I had only lost half a pound.
    It's (more than a little) disheartening, espcially as I have a lot to lose.
    The week before I had a gain (+1.5 - which was more than I gained over Chrismtas) despite sticking to the plan! However, I was trying EE for the first time.
    I cannot think why I had the gain - no star week, did not go over on my syns, weighed and measured etc.

    This week I did not want another gain - so I stuck to the plan 100% (extra easy) I and it was my birthday on Tuesday, I went out for a meal - but used flexi syns (gave myself 40 and I think I had about 29 - no alcohol or anything!) and have lost half this week.
    I know half off is better than half on or nothing off.. but arrrggh. half a pound off means it will take years to get to target. I expect it to take a long time, and to have slow weeks.. but not this slow :(

    Maybe I'm doing the plan wrong.. I just can't think anymore.

    /stops feeling sorry for oneself.:break_diet:

    On a BRIGHTER note.. I am doing a red day today.. may post my diary in here later? If that's okay with everyone?!

    Good luck all of youu xxx
    What do you have for dinners on Green though? Apart from jacket potatoes (that's what I live off on Green days - or pasta in tomatoe sauce)
    x

    Hey! Well according to my wii fit I have 8.9 to lose! But going for 6 as a 'smaller' goal - oh how ironic!
    Well done for maintaining over Christmas hun :) that's great.
    How are you finding extra easy? x

    Good Luck! I weigh on Thursdays, too :wave_cry:

    Oh wow that's amazing - well done you!!

    Whoo! :eek:Get you! How long has it taken you hun?

    I personally find ee really difficult and I was getting tiny gains/tiny losses and felt like I was yoyoing so I exclusively do red and green now!!

    For green days I'll have jackets mash wedges sw chips pasta or quorn cottage pie etc
    Or like tonight I made homemade beef burgers and sw chips I just measured the meat out and syned it!
    And I tend to use my syns I I'm on green days for meat or if on red days I might have a jacket.
    That way meal times I don't feel deprived.
    I can't eat enough ss to get the ee plan to work I've tried and failed.
    How are you finding the red/green plan?!

    It took me 3.5months to loose the stone and a bit bc at the beginning on ee I yoyo ed and couldn't achieve my goals but on red green I seem to get a loss of 2lbs a week average!!!

    How's your week going so far?!

    Is there room for yet another buddy?

    I started SW, going it alone, on 4th Jan. Overall I have about 7 stone to loose and know that it is going to be a long process, it's taken over 13 years to put on so know it's not going to disappear over night.

    My first goal is to loose 2 stone by the end of May. I'm getting married at the end of July and start my dress fittings end May so once they are under way I'll have to maintain until the wedding and then start again after.

    After that I'll be aiming for a stone at at time and to get my BMI under 30 so I can have IVF treatment.

    Hi new people!

    Mitzkirsty - yeah I think I am the same. I literally been doing EE since Christmas and think my losses have been rubbish (I know a loss is a loss) compared to other propels. Been trying red and green since Thursday, so we'll see how I get on!

    How is your week going? It's much easier for me to be 100% on plan when I just think 'no pasta/rice/potatoes' or 'no meat/fish' today - and then if I fancy it (rarely) I will have HEB or syn!! x

    Of course there's room - it's brill to have a forum to share ideas, motivate one another and cheer one another up.

    2lbs is brill - I'm aiming for 2.5 lbs this week, which will take me to half a stone. I hope I get it!!!
