    You won't look back if u do join!

    I joined 21 Oct & have almost 2 stone off - although I have lots to lose!

    Our group doesn't do red r green days - we r all on extra easy. Each day you are allowed up to 15syns, a healthy A option for your dairy intake eg either 350ml skimmed milk r 42g reduced fat cheese- there are lots of alternatives of cheese & milk but these are the two I enjoy and then similarly with the healthy B choice I would have 57g Wholemeal bread but it also includes things such as porridge or delicious hi fi slimming world bars- this is your fibre intake and both options are measured amounts.

    Then you'll have free foods - potatoes, rice, pasta, lean meats and most fish - this is the best bit- no measuring- eat as much as u like to fill up!

    Superfree foods should fill 1/3 of ur plate- most veggies & lots of fruit- again unlimited supplies - u never should feel hungry on this diet! Even eggs r free & I tend to snack on these r a microwaved baked spud with beans- so handy!

    Some foods will assist in speedy weight loss to but you'll c these in ur book!

    Then luxury things basically r synned and you must count each item which gets easier after a couple of weeks - such as alcohol chocolate White bread party food takeaways etc but again all is detailed in your books :0)

    I treasure my syns though- make the most of them! Eg half a toffee crisp is 5.5 syns but I cAn get a Chinese with boiled rice for the same!

    When u go to class the support is brill! I went to ww but never stayed as the classes were rubbish- I hate missing the Sw ones though- it's like a night out with friends! Target members - who have reached their weight and now attend free bring old pics or clothes they used to wear in and it's great to c- we have nights where you bring Sw friendly snacks/ meals for everyone to try to get new ideas - I brought jelly sweets and Choc orange truffles a few weeks ago :0)

    If you are struggling that week the others will give tips cos most have been there- r if the weight is flying off u u can give others tips based on how u r doing it :0)

    I can honestly say this is the best diet I've tried & even eating out is ok now! And I still enjoy takeaway & a few beverages at the weekend :0)

    Good luck to all of u - keep us posted on how u get on! If I've missed anything I'm sure someone else will post or correct me :0)
