My fat year: no more SW

After a very up-and-down year so far, I've decided to leave Slimming World. I managed to lose half-a-stone (7lb), but then kept putting 2lb on then losing 3lb, putting 1lb on and losing 0lb. And then I had to go onto a "white/bland" diet, which pushed the syns through the roof. We cook a lot …

My fat year: almost at 2nd target …

I'm just one week away from the end of my first three months with Slimming World. I've hit the 7lb loss twice, and today's weigh-in has been my lightest so far. I've lost 9lb in almost three months, and if I crouch down and squint at the scales, I can see the next stone-zone. In …

My fat year: New Year with Slimming World

And so I was doing really, really well, earning my first half-stone (7lb) badge from  Slimming World, and then ... well, Christmas happened, didn't it? I'm not complaining really, though. I've often believed that weight-loss should not be all-consuming, that life happens, and that you can be far too anal about certain things. And, after all, …

My fat year: Week 4 with Slimming World

It's been a much better week with Slimming World. The shopping is catching up with the menu plans and I'm getting used to not eating between meals. I'm also calculating what I can and can't have in my head now, and just confirming it on the online diary. We've been adapting favourite recipes to suit and …
