new to the site but not to dieting!!!

I am rejoining SW on the 4th August and doing it at home til then. Why the 4th and not now well there is a voucher in the Bella on the 4th - I have my son's 18th birthday this week and am going out Sat/Sun to party the night away and dont want a gain in my first week.

I so want this to work, did lost 3 1/2 stone with SW several years ago, all regained and more, have a wedding to attend next August, a holiday next June and know I can do it if I put the effort in.

Going to attend a class although the happy clapping does make me cringe, as it is a little bit like Little Britain, is that me or do others think like this? Will try and join some form of exercise, always fancied Zumba but not sure if I would have the rhythm to do it!

Looking forward to chatting and hearing all about your journeys to a slimmer self and meeting some of you old minimims friends.

Hi and welcome

Sounds like you've got the plans laid and the motivation / goal date etc, so the middle part you've done before.. means you're sorted! You can do it again.

I've only been with SW 3 weeks - the clapping part is a bit weird but never watched little Britain. I must admit for me, that clapping and support is needed. I went because I was failing to do it on my own.. so I am part and parcel of why it happens I guess.

Look forward to seeing you around the board and celebrating your success... I promise not to clap

Welcome to the forum! You've got plenty of motivation so I'm sure you'll succeed. There's plenty of us doing SW. I do it online so this is like my group, minus the clapping! You should take a look at our food journals. Good luck with your WL

Welcome to Social Slimmers.

I go to a Slimming World group and, yes, the clapping is a little weird but, like PurpleJ, I feel that I need the support and encouragement that I get there.

Good luck with your weight loss journey.

Yup so with you on the little Britain
I don't go to group - that's one of my many reasons. Great support here though. Good luck

Welcome . Yes I agree about the clapping, but it may be a bit awkward if they didn't haha!

You sound very motivated so you will do fab. I look forward to seeing you around here

Well joined my class using my voucher and was the heaviest I have been in a long time. Must say that I really enjoyed the class, even the clapping!!!

So this is the heaviest I will weigh this year and its not onwards and upwards but onwards and downwards.

All help and advice will be gladly accepted.

Well today was my first weight in and I lost 8.5lbs! OMG that is the most I have ever lost in one week - got my first 1/2 stone award.

Well pleased :0)
