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.…

It was this time last year, that I had finally plucked up the courage to join Slimming World. I was on the cusp of going up yet another dress size taking it to my fourth in total and I realised I couldn’t go on like this anymore. I went on to lose three stone in under six months sticking to the Slimming World plan and haven’t looked back since. I am not professing to be an expert in ANY capacity no no no, however, I am sharing with you today MY 5 fool proof ways to lose weight with Slimming…

Tuesday’s for me are weigh in day at Slimming  World. It is the big day where you finally see if your week of hard graft (or pure indulgence) has paid off. But weigh in day? It’s not all about those numbers flickering in front of your face as you step on the scales, no no no! Any member knows the weigh in preparation starts twenty four hours before: Day before

Ever wondered what it is like joining a Slimming World group? I did up until Tuesday when I bit the bullet and waddled into fat club. I dabbled with Slimming World online last year but I did it online and despite losing weight in the first few weeks after long, I started slipping a bit. Yes I was cheating myself but who knew? Who cared. And I caved. And ploughed on with crisps and sweets. But enough is enough. I literally cannot fit in any clothes. I feel revolting and utterly despise myself. I want to avoid social situations especially…

I thought I’d post this early and get it out the way – in short, this week has been an utter disaster compared to week two. I knew that last weekend was going to be hard to stay on plan as we had a wedding with afternoon & evening meals then we went to Alton Towers for Iggle Piggles party so it was going to be two long days with lots of temptation. What I didn’t bargain for was how much I struggled to get back on plan. I feel really disappointed into myself and found myself slipping into old…

Hello again and thanks for reading. Last week was just amazing but I was thinking I may possibly have a huge loss in the first week as my body went into shock!! I had almost 3 stone to lose to my target weight so there was a lot to go. So onto this week Massive confession – I had a huge binge on chewy sweets at the weekend. I was feeling a bit down so I totally take responsibility but it can’t have helped. Last week I set myself 3 goals – to exercise more, drink less diet coke &…

As most of you know, I have started on Slimming World and I have completed my first full week of Slimming World! I must admit that it took me a while to get my head round and I kept checking what I could and couldn’t eat, but I did an online shop to get everything in that I could eat and felt ready and raring to go. I did have to go out and get a few extra bits after seeing some tasty recipe ideas on Pinterest which I’ve pinned to my board. I will admit I had a bit…
