    Hi :wave_cry:

    I'm Emmylou and I'm just re-starting SW. Lost 2 stone two years ago, and have since put it on with interest.

    I'm back again now, and am approaching the end of my first week. Strangely enough, found this forum when I googled "how many oz of houmous in a tbsp". You all seem like pretty nice (and normal ... ish:p) people.

    Going to have a mooch round now before bed...hopefully I'll be back again!

    Hello! Welcome to minimins! You have certainly found the right place for all the support and guidance you will ever need for your SW journey. This is like going to group, but its open 24-7 and the consultants arent paid, but they are ever so kind and lovely.

    Never leaving is good by me. That was the problem *last time*. I thought I could do it on my own...:sigh:

    Am being *super good* today. Work do a hot meal a couple of times a week, but instead of having beef stew and dumplings (omnomnom, but not made SW way!) I'm having a big box of tuna pasta salad. Gotta love "Extra Easy"...means I only have to syn the houmous and not the tuna these days!

    I (well, Best Mate who I share a flat with) makes a mean SW-friendly stew and dumplings. She did the plan briefly a couple of years ago, and now "slims by default" - ie she will eat SW at home but if she wants chocolate/cake/whatever then she'll have it. And she'll have my share too. Which is what friends are for.

    Shell_y: I go to the Hanham Wednesday morning group. Used to go to Clifton's Monday night one, but found myself starving myself all day on a Monday incase I put on. Only work three days a week now, so Wednesday morning is great for me - drop BM at work, go to group, go and do food shopping (before temptation can sneak in). What about you?

    Someone just commented on the fact that my lunchbox (a 2.2 litre one) is FULL, and they thought I was on a diet. When I told them that yup, I was eating healthily (I don't do "diets" - you die before your t), and this is entirely "on plan" you should've seen their face! Gotta love SW!

    I go to one in Little stoke wednesdays at 5pm, i eat the same every week and still have my afternoon treat, i decided that from the off and then i know if i eat similar that i should not be affected by the food. I know lots do not eat after a certain time though.
