Hi I'm a newbie having started just last week. I have switched from slimming world as my weight had got stuck. I'm sure I was eating too much. I have been counting calories all week and have found myself quite full (most of the time) my son is getting married next June and I don't want to be the short dumpy one in the photos!! I have increased my exercise this week with additional walkies for the dog and started swimming. My starting weight was 11.7 and today I am 11.6. I'm happy to lose a pound and will continue with my struggle.
