    Well I've finally taken the plunge and joined a SW class last night. After being on the CD since the beginning of Feb I've lost a stone but after a blip 3 weeks ago I completely fell off the wagon and knew that CD was not for me.

    I am so looking forward to cooking again as it was a passion that I missed and the flexibility with SW means that with a little thought, there is nothing really that you cant have.

    Ok so I wont have the quick fix of CD, some people can do it and do it very well but I'm not one of those people. I've reajusted my expectations and goals and so what if its going to take me 3 more months to get me to where I want to be, at least I'll be doing it being more happy.

    In my few weeks between CD and my SW weigh in, I found I'd only put 2lbs on so no major damage done.

    Green day today and pasta for dinner, woohoo !

    Have a happy Easter everyone !

    Hi time for action,
    I tried CD and missed cooking and creating too!! Good luck with SW, it's a brilliant plan, but you seem to know that already.
    Make sure you keep coming here for mid week motivation.

    Good for you hon and welcome! I did CD for a while as well, and really found the no food bit too difficult, and really do enjoy sw, because as you say, nothing is forbidden.

    Let us know how you get on

    Thanks everyone !

    Things going good so far, you know the key to this is preparation and organisation. If you plan then you really cant fail and if you feel tempted then you've got a few syns to play with to cope with that temptation.

    I think after being restricted for so long using syns is going to be a struggle however I didnt really have a problem last night as I used them on 2 glasses of red wine, bliss !

    So far so good, today's a red (original) day, my fav. CHicken salad for lunch and home made burgers tonight for dinner.

    The cereal makes me laugh though. 28g of fruit and fibre = 4 flakes and a raisin heheheh!

    Hope everyones having a good day!
