Hello Kirbo and very warm welcome 😊

You are not alone in having a history of dieting failure, the answer for me was to work out a plan I could stick to long term, generous and no deprivation. Have a good look around, and please join in with things, I’ll tag you on the general chat thread where you’ll see all the activities and events 😊

You will have been given links to our Pinned Posts in your Welcome message when you first joined, please read them carefully, especially the Welcome Newbies and the Security Post as I notice you have left your post unlocked This is a very busy forum with lots going on but feel free to ask if you have any questions 😊

Best Wishes in your weight loss journey

I do not know how much you want to lose, I thought I had tried every diet, I joined a slimming club, been going 18 weeks lost 17lb it is not easy, especially if like me you like your food, but I did it for my health, I was very breathless just walking, now I am not. But after the next six weeks I am leaving the club, I will miss the laughs, but I hope I can go it alone by doing part calorie counting and part just eating the right food, good luck


Iv been doing slimming world on n off for years I only ever seem to lose a stone then I'm stuck. I need to lose at least 6 stone just now. Well done with your progress with it seems to be working g good for you 😀
