Hi all!
I stumbled upon u guys when googling syns! you all seem great so gonna stick around if thats ok!!

Started Slimming World this monday just gone. only had green days so far and the amount of carbs im eating seems really unnatural to me after avoiding them on other diets. im feel like im going to gain this week, would that be common or am i doing summin wrong??

im doing it from home as im going back to work (night shifts) after maternity leave very soon and dont want to commit to classes just now. i have found a daytime class but its the other side of town so ill only go if im struggling!

I've got a fair bit to shift, i was overweight when i got pregnant, then put on a whopping SIX stone thanks to gestational diabetes (only diagnosed after birth, sigh!) and ridiculous water retention! oh and good old fashioned eating for two!! (or 4 actually) Lost 3 stones shortly after but have been stuck for months now, but not trying hard enough if im honest.
So im taking control once and for all!!

I've waffled on as usual!

Anyway, lovely to meet you all
