I have done it – I am now officially a Slimming World target member! I hit my target last Tuesday and am feeling so happy. I have to admit, I had been chasing my tail for months of putting on and losing but to finally be at a weight I’m completely happy with feels so good. So, what does being a Slimming World target member mean?
A target member means you have reached your self-imposed goal. This can be changed at any time but also allows you the freedom to go three pounds below or three pounds above it. Being a target member means free membership for life (as long as you don’t go out of the weight range as above) so you don’t have to pay the weekly fee of £4.95. You can weight as and when you like meaning you have more flexibility and don’t have to use your holidays. As it is my first week as a target member, it’ll be interesting to see how I maintain my weight. You aren’t encouraged to intake extra syns but are allowed an extra A and B choice which is brilliant so I am finally have a much longed for cheese roll (on wholemeal of course!)
It’s been a brilliant journey. I lost 3 stone in 6 months and improved my fitness. Not only was my fitness improved but I felt so much better and confidence. I am so glad I made the decision to join as it quite honestly has changed my life. I am healthier for my kids, my stomach and body feels so much better and I don’t get cramps which I used to on a diet of junk food.
I’m not going to sugar coat it as there have been hard times. Trying to juggle “staying on plan” with general life can be hard. When I am stressed or tired, I reach for the junk food and that has still happened. Weeks of putting on or maintaining when you’ve stuck religiously to plan is hard mentally to take. I have wanted to throw in the towel, gone on eating binges but despite all this – I have trained my mind. I know that Slimming World does work. It makes me feel so much better and is a plan that really is adaptable to family life.
Here’s to a future of being happy, healthy and confident
