Happy new year/new you to you all ๐Ÿ’–

Happy new year to you all, I hope youโ€™ve all enjoyed the festivities. I gained over xmas, just 2lbs. But Iโ€™m back on it and hoping for a loss when I weigh in on Thursday.

Iโ€™ve lost 5 and a half stone since the end of April, I donโ€™t regret a minute. Iโ€™ve gone from a size 22 to a 12/14. Iโ€™m hoping to get to target this year ๐Ÿ˜

Happy New Year to you Freya31

Well done on losing so much weight in such a short time, I would have expected it to take much longer. I have 5.5 - 6 stone to lose and you have given me the encouragements I need to really work hard at this

Thank you for giving me the hope I needed

Thanks oliveoyl, Iโ€™ve had a lot of friend support. I go to a group every week too. But do what works for you. All the very best x

I should mention as well that Iโ€™ve had friends support but sadly Iโ€™ve also lost a friend through it as well ๐Ÿ˜ข I guess those that are true friends will stick with u through thick and thin!

Some people are only friends while they are slimmer than you, when you lose weight they don't like the fact you are maybe slimmer than them

That's when you find who your true friends are

Yes I totally agree. I have found this in the past.

Jealousy can be a very nasty thing..

I've tried Weight Watchers in the past and am actually paid up until March with Slimming World but I lose some weight then it goes back on again so I thought I'd give counting calories a go

Of course I could always go between this and SW I suppose, as long as i lose weight.

Well done again

I go to slimming world, Iโ€™ve tried Scottish slimmers in the past and lost 2 stone but I found it slower to come off and more difficult to maintain.

If u need a sw buddy Iโ€™d help ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi OliveOyl . Can I suggest you try the NHS 12 Week Healthy Eating Plan on here? It really does work and it's free and at your fingertips. Over the last 35+ years I have done WW , SW, SS and Cambridge but didn't have much success on any of them. The 12week plan is healthy eating and sustainable. I know the above groups work well for a lot of people but I wasn't one of them.

Your welcome OliveOyl . There's also a daily weigh in so just choose a day you want to start and stick to the same day every time you weigh in. I am part of the Super Sunday Slimmers which is normally open until 10pm but will rollover into Monday this week due to the New Year. Wishing you well in whatever you decide.โ˜บ

I gained a lb ( but weighed myself after breakfast so that must count a bit!) back on track now.

Your consultant said that the average gain over xmas is a stone and you only gained 2lbs. To get to that average someone stuck on 26lbs :O
