hi val,

i`ve been doing slimming world and have so far lost a stone! got hubby joining in so it makes life easier. i`ve spent loads on cookery books and find the on-line tips great, it might seem a bit boring at first but after a while you learn to compensate, tonight we`ve had steak with peppercorn sauce and loads of veg, all sin free. they have just introduced a new system and im trying to get to grips with that, i`m only just new to this site and i`m trying to work out all the abbreviations! so i hope we can maybe swap tips, nails for recipes?

hi
dont worry abt having a wee drinky just get back on the plan tomorrow and you will be fine
i think a voddy and diet coke is 2 & 1/2 syns......lol
i think rum is abt the same have a look on the slimming world website and the online directory - its in the life line online section- all you need is your group password
you can also save your syns too and if you save all your syns up in a week you could have 105 syns for the weekend....well it works out abt 42 vodkas anyway :rolleyes: :lol: :wink2:
im nt saying spend all ya syns on voddy tho... im out tomorrow nite and ive got to be stricked and stop at 6 voddys....thats all my syns for the day........it mite happen.....lol

No but I really should be!


I'm at that stage - that happens every January - when your combats don't fit as well as they should (i.e. tight across the thighs and bum) and I feel pig sick of myself.

Didn't at the time I was guzzling into the kids' selection boxes and polishing off a tin of Heroes :o ............. d'ya reckon there is hope for me yet?

Anyway, I've decided Monday is the day to do it and a trip to Asda is in the making for plenty of fruit and salad stuff!

Why?:cry: - I love chocolate so much, why does it have to make my bum the size of a small African Country?

Rant over.

S.x

i am doing slimming world after watching the mum-in-law lose 3 stones since may last year. i have been on it for 2 weeks now and hate it! i am constantly hungry and obsessing about food. i live on green days 'cos at least you can have a decent amount of chicken if you have it as 2 b choices for the day, if i was on a red day the pasta/potato portion is so small you may as well not have any. on my first week i was hungry all week followed the plan, pushed myself up the gym 3 times that week and lost 2 pounds!!! IS THAT IT!!! i know it's 2 pounds off but come on my first week i expected to lose at least 4 pounds. i had minty lamb chops a mound of mashed potato with butter in and loadsa gravy last night and felt like it was the first decent thing i have had in weeks. i prefer weight watchers. my hubby says the only way to lose weight is eat healthy, excersice regular and LAY OFF THE VINO he's probably right, i've already had 2 peices of toast this morning so i've had syns already and it aint even 12.00 oh well!

another thing that peed me off about it was the mum in law put on 1 pound this week cos she counted jelly tots wrong????????

I tried slimming world but have converted back to weight watchers. More because the leader at slimming world wasnt at all inspirational rather that the diet itself. I found on SW I was having all green days and as a result wasnt losing weight very quickly at all. Just got too hungry on the red days and found the diet hard work in the fact that you have to keep refering back to the books for syn amounts. With Weight watchers I hit Asda with my points calculator and can work out in a flash how many points things are. Think its just easier for me. Some great weightloses from you lot though. Keep up the great work!!!
