Hello I'm new here!

Hi, I joined slimming world on the 13th August so have had my first week's weigh in. I lost 1.5 lbs and my consultant called me the next day as she was concerned I'd not lost more (I'd handed in my food diary) she went through it with me which I was really impressed by, to try and work out why.

To be honest I was happy with a loss as it doesn't feel like a 'diet'!

Five years ago I lost 30lb with weight watchers but have gained just over a stone in the last year and am keen not to get back to where I was so am giving this a go. I only have just over a stone to lose, and people are surprised when I say I've joined, but my weight was rising by the week!! I did get a new job so was exercising less and drinking more tea, plus I havent been watching what I was eating as well as I clearly should have!

I'm surprised there isn't a slimming world hosted forum as there is with Weight Watchers but it looks like this is right place to be!

This plan feels just right for me, although I do think I might struggle with eating out.

Sorry for the long intro!

Caroline x

Hi and welcome
There are lots of us posting doing SW so you're not alone and I'm sure will enjoy the forum.

A lot of us have journals and post our food diary there and give feedback / support if needed - we chatter day to day stuff too

There are weigh in days for sharing your losses too - I'm sure you'll do great, sounds like your consultant is on the ball too

look forward to celebrating your losses with you soon.

Thank you ! Just realised my first weigh in was Wed 12th August, not the 13th oops!

I wasn't hungry tonight so just had mug shot - it was my first one and I was pleasantly surprised! However after that I felt a bit hungry so had a peach and some grapes. Is it ok to not have a 'proper' meal? I had two glasses of wine at 12 syns.
