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: a rubbish fortnight

Well, I say a rubbish fortnight, but actually, the first week was quite good with me dropping down to almost the lightest I've been since I started with Slimming World. But with only twenty-two days before my initial three-month membership to go, I'm very disappointed that this morning I've gained 2lb again. I know what it …

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 …

My fat year: Week 3 with Slimming World

We still don't have any new photographs - we really ought to get out more! But here's another one I've already used this year. My third week with Slimming World has been difficult. The week started okay, but on Wednesday the poet cooked a SW Mexican chilli. Now, I'm not a huge spicy food lover, but I …

My fat year: Week 2 with Slimming World

We don't have any new pictures to share at the moment, so I'm going to use an old one instead. (I know there are pictures on the camera too, but they haven't been processed yet ...) After my second week with Slimming World, I've lost another ½lb. That brings the total so far to 3½lb. I'm getting …

My fat year: Week 1 with Slimming World

After just one week with Slimming World, I've lost an amazing 2¾lb. But the SW site won't let me input quarter-pounds, so I've plumped for a 3lb-loss. This could go one of two ways ... Next week I might not lose anything at all (or - horror! - gain!), and might wish I'd saved that …
