    Well....

    After months of putting it off I finally decided to join Slimming World on 26th July 2011. I wanted to (and needed to) join a long time ago but was too concerned that as soon as I walked into the class it would be full of skinny minny's who would all stop and stare - silly i know.

    A close friend of mine joined in February this year and when I saw her recently she looked fantastic, and was giving me lots of information about it so I decided to bite the bullet and just go for it.

    The moment I walked into class i was instantly put at ease, there were half a dozen other new members and the existing members were so friendly and welcoming. As for my consultant, well I cant praise her enough really because she's so lovely and very approachable. When hearing all about the different plans it was hard to believe that a diet could be so easy and you could eat so much, now that ive been doing it for 2+half weeks i can honestly say I'm never hungry.

    I definately feel - only after 2 weeks - that i've never been so positive about loosing weight, any diet before has always been seen as a chore, and therefore never lasted.

    I'm 100% focused and will stick at this plan, I have a loving husband and a 22 month old little girl so I'm not only doing it for myself but for them as well.

    So.... As and from today I thought it would be good to start a food diary :)

    Hi Angela, Good to see you have started up your own diary.. well done.. and well done on your loss so far.

    Great that you found your class warm and friendly and that you are feeling 100%. Try not to let it get to you when the odd blip occurs as that is bound to happen sooner or later..al part of being human! .. :D Just be determined to get back on the wagon as soon as poss and put it behind you.

    All th very best to you .... :)

    Lol, what it was I had my TOTM this week and was convinced I would gain around 5lb when all I needed was half a pound off to get to my first half stone so I tried really hard all week - used very few syns and did lots of walking at the weekend, I walk to and from work during the week also.

    I stepped on the scales at class though+couldnt believe how much I had lost, all I wanted was my half lb and I'd have been pleased so naturally I was totally over the moon :) gave me so much motivation which is something Ive never had before i joined sw and when trying to lose weight, with this one I really enjoy it :) xxx
