    Welcome @Betharooni.  Tomorrow will be a good time to start - there are new books out now however it doesn't sound as though there are any real changes to the plan from what someone on the old thread posted!  Just as well as don't think I'm likely to be back in target before 16 January which is when they're stopping handing them out to those who are already members!

    t please may I join you all again 
    I want to lose 2 stone + what I’ve regained in December !
    so that works out at 8 lb a quarter,written down like that it looks easy 🤣🤣
    will be going to group every Saturday as it just doesn’t work on my own !
  • Waves white flag and creeps back in lol. 😳

    I am a returner too. I was a target member but that was at the start of the pandemic. I never joined in with the SW zoom sessions. When the groups restarted, I had gone back to nursing and was on a shift pattern that meant it really wasn’t going to be easy to commit to the same group. I thought I could do it on my own but of course I couldn’t and I now am carrying an extra stone plus the 5lbs I’ve put on over the festive period. All my clothes and uniform fit but they are snug and I don’t feel good in them. This, and the start of the new year, are the motivation I need.
    Im not going to rejoin at SW but I am going to be accountable on here - if you’ll have me back.
    I've weighed in this morning (that’s how I know about the 5lbs) and will weigh in either on a Friday or a Saturday depending on my shifts.
    I know I’ve got a battle on my hands but I am very keen to get a significant chunk (if not all) by Easter Saturday 16th April. This gives me 15 weeks. It will be my gift to myself if I can do it - and I know that I can 🤗

    Welcome @Betharooni and @Matron_Midge. It's good to see you again.😊 You know that Slimming World works. Good luck with losing the pounds! 

    Do ask any questions you have and we'll try to help. And do let us know if you notice any changes @Matron_Midge when you go back to group.

    I plan to go to group on 13th January and face whatever damage has been done over Christmas. I will post my menu for today but I won't be properly back on plan until Monday. I still have a few chocolates to finish off! 🤣

    I had the M&S Lamb Rogan Josh last night and it was very tasty. A bit pricey at £4.75 but a nice treat at 3 syns for 400g pack which I shared with DH. I'd buy it again and I noticed a lamb jalfrezi on the website  that might be worth a try.

    Today's Extra Easy plan-
    B- bacon, eggs (P), tomatoes (S), HEB toast,  part HEA1 milk for drinks
    L- JP (F), cottage cheese (P), pickles (S)
    D- lasagne (P,S, F and HEAs), salad (S)
    Syns- cornflour 1, chocs and weekend wine😁😋

    Happy new thread. I’ll be here for the foreseeable, was horrified when I weighed this morning and have decided I’m rejoining SW next week.  My local class has a new consultant who is apparently very good and i know I need the accountability element and someone weighing me! 

    Food today and tomorrow is all SW friendly and only drinks tonight might be slightly over syns.
  • I started back at the end of November so that I could get a head start. Have had a gain this week but I'm looking forward to getting back into my usual routine. Next week is a great time to restart as the consultants will be going through the new packs with everyone.

    To those (like me) who didn't realize that there's a Slimming World podcast, I'd recommend listening to this. If you look it up on Spotify you'll see there's a good build up of them to listen to. I tend to listen at breakfast time instead of putting the radio or tv on and it gets me in the SW zone for the day. 

    Good luck everyone.

    I'm back on proper tomorrow.

    I had too many things in the freezer and cupboards and it all became a bit of a nightmare, but after today there will be nothing! :)

    And I'm doing dry-january cause I need to stop eating snacks..
