    Will be miracle if I do it as I have been losing at 0.5lb per week but it will give me something to aim for.

    Good luck to everyone. :)

    cantstopgaining - it is all to do with how many times you have posted. Once you reach 50 posts everything gets unlocked, so you can put all sorts in your signature and view member profiles etc. So you just need two more and you will be there! :D It took me ages to figure out why I couldn't put much in my signature like everyone else, lol.

    Hey everyone! Grinning with the response :D I thought I'd be all on my lonesome, hehe... Good luck to all of us!

    happyhippos, welcome :) xxx

    Emma-louise, whatever you need to do to, do! I wanted to say 'do do!' but that would have had me in girly giggle fits :8855: xxx

    cantstopgaining, I hope this will motivate you and contribute to your loss before your holiday! Sounds nice, where are you off to hun? xxx

    Emily, really hope this helps hun! My June has been pretty rubbish too :( I think I'm gonna be one of those people who loses 2lbs a week max. Let's see how it goes though :) xxx

    Dumpylump, I don't want to call you that! Can we have a name to work with? Or a nicer nickname? Hehe, just remember, you aren't as dumpylumpy as when you started, and you will continue to move away from the description in your nickname as long as you stay on track :) I see you've been doing SW for quite a while... Is there anything you could tweak in the way you eat? xxx

    Aww, aren't we such a pleasant group with our pleases and thank yous and colours?! :D

    Just call me DP.

    I've been with slimming world a while but I joined last year and lost about 16lb, then went on holiday and put some back on, instead of going back to class I stopped going until this year about 11 weeks ago. Weightlosses slowed right down when the doc put me on anti depressants so I just have to keep going and plodding along.

    Hey 10st 10lbs,

    Loved your post very positive i'm sure we will all get on brilliantly this month i only lost 1lb last week in my first week so was very disappointed but oh well july is a new month!!

    I am off to qatar in the middle east to visit some relatives who live out there! I want to be able to buy size 18 clothes and be comfortable, all of my 18's right now are a little snug ( i can only handle wearing them for a few hours before it gets uncomfortable :( )

    Here is to being big loosers in july :) :) xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Aw :( well hope you feel well enough to come off them soom :) you have all our support and I'm sure there'll be lots of chatter on here to keep you smiling :) I wish you the best of luck for this new SW journey xxx

    There's been a lot of small first week losses recently! I always reply with 'yeah well, I GAINED half a lb in my first week!' haha... Actually, let me find you the response I posted on someone's thread, it may help...

    *trudges off to have a look*

    *returns 15 mins later, tired but satisfied*

    About your loss, honestly hun, don't worry about it! I GAINED 0.5lbs in my first week, was absolutely gutted. The old me would have given up after that, but the new me sat back and thought 'what did I do wrong?'. A few things, actually! ...:

    I took 'eat as much as you want and still lose weight' a bit too literally. I was eating until I was full, but still probably eating too much at meal times and not filling up on fruit snacks throughout the day.

    I wore very light clothes to my first WI, had had no breakfast (my WI is at 10am), and had been to the toilet just before. My second WI, I'd had breakfast, wore jeans, forgot my phone (brick, may I add) was in my pocket, and hadn't been to the toilet since the night before. Now I wear the same pair of jeans each week, don't eat breakfast and make sure my pockets are empty!

    I didn't have enough speed foods. After that second WI, I started having a lot more pineapple in the week, and got losses, small though they were, but slow and steady wins the race!

    I hope this sheds some light on why you could have had a loss you think is poor, but please don't fret! Just keep trying, and enjoy the possibilities of SW!

    ***

    So yeah, hope that helps! Your holiday sure does sound like something to look forward to :) I hope TFF can help in getting you into 16s by the end of the month ;) xxx
