Too little, too late

I don’t really understand it: SoD sprung it on me today – I’ve lost 2lbs. 3lbs if you take my weight from Monday when it had inexplicably sprung up a lb. So this means over the last six weeks:

Week 1 - -2lbs
Week 2 – STS
Week 3 – STS
Week 4 – STS
Week 5 – STS
Week 6 - - 2lbs

Does anyone see a pattern there? I mean short of the chaos theory. If it were a 4 week pattern I could see it but...

In any case, it’s just too little, too late. 4lbs over 6 weeks is not really very satisfying. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to have lost 2lbs this week but the overall picture is not good. And I don't understand why so I can't remedy it.

So, thanks to lots of painstaking advice from Claire (, (and I WAS a pain ), I think I’m going to try Slimming World. It can’t hurt and it might help. There are bits about it that scare me silly and I really don't like change, but I think I’m going to take a deep breath and give it a shot. What have I got to lose? Hopefully only a pile of lard.

hey hun, I'm joining sw on Monday. Nothing else is working for me and sw is the easiest option x x

Well fancy that, you're joining us on Ess Dubs!

I am not great at change, especially when it comes to my food routine, but I have to say it's definitely worth a bash. Once you get your head around the whole thing, it's actually really simple.

I'm here if you think I can help at all!

Weird isnt it - I've been toying with having another go at SW. Always preferred it to WW and have had much sucess on it in the past.

Good luck chuck...if nothing else you might get a drop just from the change??!

Have a great weekend.

A change really is as good as a rest. I always feel remotivated when I start a new diet. Go you! x

Ooooh, the dark side! Best of luck with it - hope it gets you the results you deserve. Oh, and congrats on a sterling loss this week.

Oooh, will be interesting to hear how you get on with SW. I am considering the change as well since I can't seem to re-motivate myself with WW.

Congrats on the loss as well!

I'm out of the loop - I've heard of Slimming World, but I have no other information. What does SW do differently from WW?

I'd love some background...I've been Googling many things lately - I have another thing to add to the list!

I admire your persistence, Peridot - never give up!
