New member - Hi! xx

Hello! New apprehensive member here . Had my second child 5 months ago and im back to my pre-preg weight, however, i would like to lose another 1st 7lbs if i can. I have a mountain of skinny jeans which cannot be worn atm .

Im going to a local club in a couple of days for my first meeting and weight in. Will be going on my own so expect to be a tad nervous - hope they are as welcoming as ive heard!

Nice to join this forum and hope to integrate with you all xx

Hi and welcome!

I'm sure you'll find the group welcoming and friendly - but can understand the nerves. You are taking a positive step though to that goal you have in mind - and those jeans fitting again soon!

Hope you enjoy starting and wish you congrats on your new arrival.

Look forward to sharing your journey with you - a lot of us SW'ers have journals and there is a weekly weigh in for each day and a Christmas challenge if you fancy joining us.

Thank you for the welcome .

Im glad im taking this step and hopefully i will have success like you guys. Ive done loads of research on SW and stocked up my pantry ready for when i join. Also done a 7 day plan, but may need to amend once i can see the syn value of food (only got tuna in sf oil, not water/brine for eg). Although i like my sweet food, i love savoury items. I could easily have 4/5 pieces of bread a day. Ive brought a wholemeal 400g loaf and it looks tiny! .

Will look through other journal's and join the 11st-10st group/weigh in Tuesday group if they're still active.

Thanks again for the warm welcome xxx

I understand with the nerves of attending a group, I wouldn't go to one on my own and made a friend take me when she joined but I'm so glad I joined all those years ago, I absolutely love it!

Well done on the pre-planning! And we've all had to use things from the cupboard at some stage, so we've all been there!

Good luck on Tuesday, and see you around the forums!

Update: My sis in law text me last night randomly asking to join me with my trip to slimming world. She was wanting to go for ages but didnt dare go on her own, so we both ended up going . Got on really well with consult, so welcoming and bubbly. Got weighed at 12st so its now the action can start!

Looking forward to this journey xx
