    Exactly what the title says!

    My mother and I were contemplating joining a SW class in Jan, however we were struggling to find a suitable class that did not clash with each others working patterns. So we came to an agreement to try SW at home for a month and then see how we got on.

    We've both done SW before but always in a class so being an obsessed snacker I really thought I'd struggle from home knowing I didn't have to face weekly class weigh in, but then I came across this site, and wow what an inspiration and much needed help!

    My first week I lived off salad and chicken, never having done EE before, but now since I found mini mins, well delia smith move over!!!

    I've now lost 12lbs from home and ive only another 1stone 5 to my target.

    even my boss and work colleagues are asking for the recipies for some of the scrumptious food I've been making from the fab threads on here.

    So thanks guys! You've all really helped me and my mum and saved us a small fortune into the bargain X

    I know minimins is an inspiration after a lifetime of struggling with my weight I really think I can do it this time. I have lost a healthy 2lbs per week and have really enjoyed creating special meals for us each night. I am addicted to the recipe threads and love ee it fits in so well with our needs. So thanks to everyone who has posted such fab recipes and tips you are all stars.

    What a lovely post! Minimins and the people on it have helped and inspired me endlessly over the past 16 months I've been on it! I have made great friends and I'm never stuck for a listening ear, a tip or a recipe suggestion! Unfortunately I'm someone who needs (at least I think I do), to attend a weekly class as well, but I think it's fantastic that people can go it alone at home and be successful! I'm so glad I found Minimins and am a part of its community XXX

    Me too! I'm thinking about lunch when I'm having breakfast, thinking about tea when I'm having lunch and thinking about breakfast when I go to bed at night! I don't think I'll ever change! X

    Thank you funcurls & congrats on your weightloss so far!

    I usually have ZERO willpower but seriously the gorgeous recipies I have found on here have just spurred me on!

    It also helps when you start to notice the changes in your clothes, an extra belt hole, or not having to be an acrobat to get jeans on!

    For whatever reason it's just clicked this time for me doing it from home but with the support of all the lovely people here and fantabulous ideas it's been like a little cyber class!!!

    ....I mean who thought of tofu chocolate pudding! But my god it does it for me!

    Good luck for your weight loss and thanks for your great words of encouragement x

    It really is the place to be, whether you're in a group or not! I had no qualms about leaving my class because I knew I would always have support here! xxx
