    Hi was doing ww then fell off the wagon, gained loads and decided to go back to doing sw which I lost alot of weight on a few years back. But am not getting on with it at all, 2 wks in I've only lost a pound and am bloated and tired. Need to make my mind up though as I am just gaining weight and getting really unhappy. Don't know what to do! Would like to do ww as feel it's healthier but I do find it hard to have to count everything I eat! Any advice or help welcome.

    Thanks x

    I never got on with SW - the "free" food was just a licence to overeat!!! And trust me, I'm an overeater!! lol

    I have found that i've got on really well with WW - i thought the whole counting foods etc would be a pain but i'm using the iphone app and its been my saviour - I just type in what I eat and it works it all out for me! I've cut out bread and pasta and am no longer bloated!

    WW has really been great for me - I have tried every diet under the sun but this is the only one thats worked for me! 20lbs lost in 8 weeks!!!

    Give it another go hun.... treat as your "last chance saloon" and I think you'll surprise yourself!

    sunshine yr story sounds like mine, just recently i was on the sw and just couldn't get on track with it. I did sw 4 years ago and lost 4 stones so I know it works, but this time round I couldn't stick to it, I find the free foods are too convincing and I end up eating food enough for 2 people and then feel more heavy and bloated which makes me feel sad. I then think if i am to lower my portion sizes, i mite as well do ww, at least that way i can have a sandwich on the grab... i fink ww is alot easier, welcome back:)

    Pixar you can do it: I've lost 63 lbs in 10 months to get to goal, and have followed WW to the letter. I know you can do it. Just take it one week at time and one silver 7 at time :)

    xx

    And to you, sunny-sunshine, welcome back to WW! Go on, you'll be back to goal in a second :)

    Don't put yourself high targets. When I joined on the 26th of July 2009 I wanted to get back to goal for my graduation in September of the following year, 12th of September 2010. in the end, I reached a lowered goal on the 20th of June 2010 and I maintained and lost some more also before my graduation. But probably if I had planned to lose weight by the 20th of June, I wouldn't have done it. It was the relaxing attitude and the experience I had already with WW that helped me. And the focus on what I was doing obviously. My target wasn't unreachable, I knew I could do it and I knew I had plenty of time to reach it, so I went straight to the target and achieved it. Give yourself a too tight deadline and if you miss it, you'll feel that you've blown it and you'll dump the diet!

    Why don't you give yourself a target for June next year to be at goal? Then if it comes earlier it's a bonus, and it could well happen before Christmas!

    I have just made the move from sw to ww and i'm finding it so much better! Not saying that sw isn't good cause i do like the diet but felt i did go over the normal portion sizes.

    I'm on day 3 at the moment and the best thing i've done is track and check the values for everything..... i found i was picking up things that are low syn but not low pro points

    Good luck
