Taking it slow, making it easy.

Okay, I know it's not easy but I've been on facebook and keep coming across posts from people who are desperate to lose weight FAST and are gutted when they can't sustain big losses all the time even though they are starving their bodies. I have been fat for nearly all my adult life and understand where they are coming from because I've been there but the truth is it just doesn't work. So I'm looking for a longterm way of eating that works for me and that I can sustain permanently. Slimming World is the closest I've come to the right eating plan but it is hard to sustain outside of the home and the plan is a bit 'one size fits all'. The new WW freestyle looks interesting as it's a lot like slimming world but a bit more flexible when you are on the go but it means more counting and once my enthusiasm wears off then that's a stumbling block.
For now I'm doing Slimming World at home with a few tweaks, tweak is a swear world at Slimming World which is a pity as I think that there is a big difference between tweaking a plan to make it more sustainable for you and doing what they used to call food abuse. I think knowing how to tweak is the difference between sustaining weight loss when times are hard and throwing in the towel. My starting weight was 16st10lb. The last time I weighed in I was 15st11lb but I have been on holiday since then so it will be interesting to see what a week off plan has done.

Hi Sue and welcome

It's a bit quiet in here at the moment but there are people doing SW and WW, as well as other plans, so lots of good advice available :).

Good luck with your journey and we'll be here to shout you on!

Thank you for the welcome Susie. I had a diary on here a few years ago but couldn't remember the password so thought it was best to start anew. December is such a difficult month and chocolates are my kryptonite. I'm hoping to maintain until January then get stuck into my diet and to minimins.

LOLOL that's an excellent way of putting it! I'm doing much the same, get through Christmas and then back into strict SW :classic_roll_eyes:.

Hon sue, you look familiar - I think maybe we chatted when you were on here before. Are you in Scotland?

Anyways, welcome (back). I’m just rejoining myself after a month astray 😊

Hi Claire, yes I used to be Bellybling. I haven't really got my head around Minimins yet or caught up with everyone. I need to read everyones posts as I see there are a lot of people back and I 'met' such lovely people last time. Susi x
