Hi Everyone

Just a little intro from me....
I'm Julie, 54 years old and I live in Nottingham
I have been struggling to lose some weight and thought by being here I might get some inspiration from you all.
I work in a local carehome so I'm pretty active but I do struggle with getting the weight off. Currently 12 stone 3 and looking to lose 2 stone. I don't go to class but I try to follow the Slimming World way of eating, but I'm not doing very well...lol. Anyway,it's nice to be here and looking forward to getting to know you all x

Hello Julie

Although classes do benefit you don't need to IMO, I started with the SW and don't regret it at all but went it alone after 6-7 weeks just fine!

Lots of luck and look forward to chatting on the forum.

Hi everyone,
My hubby and I have been trying to lose some weight for some time now and have been dipping in and out of different plans trying to find out the best one for us. We keep coming back to slimming world so this time we're really gonna give it a go!! we have booked a holiday for next Jan and I really want to fit in that plane seat comfortably!
I'm 52 and would like to lose quite a bit of weight to feel comfortable by Jan. I have tried the classes many times in the past but to be honest I dont really like the classes, I always pay out the money to join, go for a few weeks and then think I can do it alone...I never do. I came across this group tonight and am hoping that I can gain some inspiration from others like me.
I have all the up to date books but its difficult knowing syn values for certain foods that aren't in the book. I hope by trying it this way I can finally get to where I want to be...hubby is on the verge of diabetes so we really need to sort our lives out now.
Here's hoping that this time it works!
Many thanks
Bev xx
