    Hi all,

    I was a devoted slimming world-er for years but as you can see in my sig/stats (need to clear it but on phone) it just hasn't worked for me this time so on a recommendation from a friend am trying low carb.

    Started on the 1st weighing in at 10.9 with a target of 9.7 (for now) wedding is in May and want to be more like 9.3-9.5 by then.

    So far, so good with one slip up on sat night. Am struggling with on the move work lunches if anyone has any suggestions? Particular stuff I can buy out from M&S/sainsburys etc :)

    Will be weighing myself weekly at home and reporting back. Have also started 30 day shred did it at the start of the year so going for round 2 but won't be everyday - wish me luck!

    Ok so think I'm doing ok altho I am still having one or 2 cups of coffee/tea with milk a day, if I cut it out completely I know I'll give up...scales are showing a loss already and will be a week tomorrow so will confirm then :)

    Switch to unsweetened alpro soya milk? Tastes great in tea to me and practically zero carb.

    Re work lunches from m&s - they do individual chicken legs, packs of flaked poached salmon, mini cheeses, some of their flavored chicken bites are ok, they do great £1 packs of ham, salami, beef etc which you can put with some cheese and a salad. They also do green salads with egg and potato - just leave the potato.

    Pret a manger do a crayfish 'no bread sandwich' which is great (the others in the range contain carbs).

    Thanks for the great suggestions.

    Weigh-in result 1st week -4lbs down to 10.5 :) woo hoo! Am really happy after having quite a few carbs on sat.

    This week going to stick to what I have and only have any real carbs such as fruit or oats in the morning for breakfast.

    Hey skinny bride - well done on a great first week. I, like you, did low carb for my wedding just over 3 months ago now. It worked a treat and made me feel slimmer - i only did low carb kn the last few months though as id fallen off the ww wagon earlier.
    Like you i did still have a bit of skimmed milk in hot drinks and had the odd bit of fruit.
    Im back on the wagon again after finding it a struggle to get back on track post wedding. I know a few low carb weeks will help me feel better for xmas though.
    Good luck! X

    So first month done, have lost 13lbs and not had any caffeine or alcohol. Tomorrow being 1st Feb I am allowing myself 1 real coffee a day which I have to have a little skimmed milk in and perhaps the odd decaf or tea every now and then.

    Hoping to loose another 8 pounds before first dress fitting in March but have birthdays and events through Feb and March which may slow me down.

    Any tips welcomed :)

    Does anyone know how carby butternut squash is?
