bombaysapphire - I tried Slimming World last year but after losing just under a stone I stopped losing any weight. I stopped going to the meetings too as all the did was spend the whole meeting talking about each individual person's there's 'gain' or 'loss' so it was a bit mundane. I know it sounds lame but I also found it hard as I didn't know anyone there and they were all in cliques either younger or much older than me. Do you think that Weight Watchers would be similar? (It's years since I last went to them) or would you highly recommend? I also love my pasta - am I allowed pasta?!!
