I'm new here - nice to see a UK section!

I want to lose 2.5/3 stone and have given up Slimming World (because I was fed up of stopping and starting constantly, thought it was time for a change) and am giving the South Beach Diet a go instead. Any of you UK girlies giving that diet a go?

Hello everyone! I'm from Vermont in the US but now live in Manchester. I'm new here and I hope to achieve my goals of losing between 3 and 4 stone in the coming year. I am doing an Atkins-style diet but allowing myself milk in my coffee, otherwise I'm being strict (Induction Phase). I know it's not the best time to diet, right before Christmas, but I put on 10lbs between the end of September and now, eating all the wrong foods and I don't want to put on any more weight before Christmas!

It's lovely to see you all here, best of luck to everyone!

xx K

S/C/G: slimming world

Height: 5ft 7in


newbie and first post

So i joined slimming world on 25/11/13. After trying many fab and crash diets i kept piling on the lbs... So i got over the "i'm too fat to join etc" and i went... i had my first weigh in yesterday and lost 9 1/2 lb, my mom also lost 5lb so thats a whopping 1stone between us! i am over the moon! i still have a long way to go (8stone). Stuck to the plan 100% only using the lower end of my syns and keeping active...
I was just wondering how much weight people have lost on sw and how long it took you to reach your goal.. i know everyone is different and we all lose weight at different stages.

Hi all,

This is my first day....am a bit torn between being a bit ashamed as I have finally got my figures.. and quite chuffed that I have signed up here rather than lurking behind the scenes! I want to lose about 65lbs to start with (will take me to happy healthy and 'normal') and going to need some help!! Now going to take a look about and work out what I need to do to make a start!!

I'm Kate, 22 and I live in Aberdeen. Currently 191, aiming for 140.

Nice to meet you all - having a good support network makes ALL the difference!

I'm calorie counting and doing regular exercise to try and shift the pounds I gained at Uni. I'm now a teacher and I'm trying to set routines in my life to get back to a healthier me!

I'm Lily from Derbyshire. I read Zoe Harcombes book and the idea that what I eat/overeat is feeding a condition really struck a cord with me. I am determined to conquer my addiction to salt and vinegar Kettle chips and achieve a healthy BMI.

I'm 20 and from London. Currently 12st 6lbs and trying to get down to 9st, although I'd be more than chuffed with 10st too!

I'm not on a specific diet, just trying to eat less of everything and only have takeaways once a month instead of three times a week. Oh, and trying to curb my ever growing caffeine and crisp addiction.

Good luck everyone, we can totes do it! x

I'm in South Devon (torbay) and I also use the MFP website/app to track my food. I'm not on a specific diet, just trying to eat right, with a calorie goal and ensuring that I exercise regularly.

I started my weightloss journey in the summer of 2012, when I weighed 280lbs (20 stone). I got down to 190lbs (13.5st) by June 2013. Unfortunately I have put 30lbs back on and currently weigh 218lbs (15.5 st). I am determined to get this yo-yo weight and more shifted.

I have a mini goal of getting to 199lbs by June.

I really want to lose weight to be healthier and able to run around after a toddler and generally be able to enjoy life more.

Hi All
I'm from Southampton and have a massive 10 stone to lose. I am currently taking Orlistat from my GP and follow a low cal/low fat diet. I also use myfitnesspal but have absolutely no idea how to add people! Good Luck to all and I know we are all headed in the right direction xx

Hello -- I am Ruby and I am from New York, but have been living in London since 1994. Did Atkins once successfully -- just about ten years ago, and am now back where I was -- slow gain over the years... personally, I am pretty pleased that it has taken this long to put it all back on, given how bad the statistics are... Nonetheless the road ahead looks scary, and I am hoping that I can pull off again what I did once. I have been doing my version of a modified Atkins for the last two weeks, and for someone who takes a whole load of meds, I have done okay so far. But am pleased to see a UK board.... Ruby.
