    Hey guys.

    I've been doing Slimming World since April 5th this year after previously losing 5st on Weight Watchers before having my son & putting 2 back on.

    Decided to try slimming world & at first got on really well with the plan, but have been maintaining for 6 weeks now and am stuck at a weight on the scales I am SICK of seeing the same numbers when I've been so 'good' I feel its the amount rather than content I've been eating! :confused:

    My stepmum (an ex-slimming world-ee) has just come over to Weight Watchers after re-gaining all her SW weight and I've been having a look at her books & forgot just how much more freedom ww gives you.

    I felt like my portion sizes were just getting ridiculous on sw & that I wasn't eating correct amounts - I'm naturally greedy & found that 'free' food, I was eating even when not hungry, is that just me? :confused:

    Anyway, would love to make some buddies on here to have a natter with and nudge me along :eek:

    Got my last SW meeting Tuesday (monthly pass) and wednesday I am joining WW. Yup!!!

    Has anyone else switched & how have you found it?

    Lots of losses. xx

    Hi
    Its my first WW day today after moving over from SW and I completely agree about eating free food just for the sake of eating it. That surely shouldnt be the way. I would have a banana because I was bored or sit and eat a whole punnet of cherries again just because I could

    My first day is going well, chicken salad for lunch 2.5 points. it was gorgeous.

    I too moved from SW having maintained give or take a pound for 3 months. For a few days put my food diary into a calorie counter and was shocked to see i was eating roughly 2000 calories a day without eating any junk food !!! My biggest problem was fruit, eggs and general portion sizes. My first week according to my home scales, i have lost 3 lbs. (not seen that for ages and ages )
    I am struggling a bit with WW as I only have 16 points and i find it difficult not to be able to grab an apple when i am genuinely hungry for fear of not having enough points left for my evening meal. My plan is to get to target with WW and then use SW for maintaining. It may suit my body to switch between the two, so one month do SW and the next do WW.
    We can do this together. Good luck and let me know how you get on. x

    i was exactly the same on sw.....it's a great plan but i'm greedy and would just eat cos i could.....where as ww points are like money....once it's gone it's gone lol.....so you get savvy about finding low point food lol

    good luck with switching x

    Good luck with the switch to ww. I'm another who couldnt carry on losing with sw - too greedy and no idea of portion control. ww is suiting me much better for the time being. May change in the future but hopefully have now found a plan I can stick to for life.

    Good luck

    I have never done Slimming World, but have a vague idea how it works and think I'd be similar to you - one of my biggest problems before (and even now if I allowed it!) was portion control and WW helps me to stick to it. If I could eat "free" foods I'd just still eat too many of them, I know what I'm like!

    I hope you are really successful on WW, wishing you all the best! :) xxx
