I really didn’t want to write this post today. In fact, I was ready to throw a hissy fit and pack Slimming World in all together. But after calming down, here I am. I’m just going to say it. I gained 1.5lbs this week. To say I’m bummed out is an understatement. In the space of 7 days, I went to the gym FOUR times, FOUR! That is a whole lot of sweating, walking and YouTube. I was pretty much bang on plan until a sneaky Happy Meal on Friday. I did then fall off the wagon a bit in…

I wrote last week about how the summer holidays left an impact on my waistline. I gained a stone which I need to lose to get back at my target weight. I posted on Instagram and Facebook and just have to say thank you so much for all the amazing support and lovely words. I really do have some lovely readers. So, my weight loss mission; I started off with really good intentions, however last Tuesday was the girls first day at school and after a few tears, we decided to head off to the shops – and of course…

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…

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 is it like joining a Slimming World group? I did up until Tuesday when I bit the bullet and waddled into my local Slimming World group for the first time. You can find yourt local group on their website and there’s usually a variety of days and times.  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.…

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…
