A New Beginning With Slimming World

I have battled with my weight for years, I have been steadily gaining weight since I starting a family back in 2004. Losing weight didnt seem important as I was too busy raising the children and Dave loves me no matter what I look like. But the weight has slowly and steadily piled on and it is only now it has started bothering me. I don't like the way my body looks or the way my clothes fit so I knew it was time to make a change.

I have tried ever fad diet going, meal replacement, soup diets, fasting diets even weight watchers. I have never managed to stick to any for more than 2 weeks and any weight I did lose piled back on afterwards plus extra. After doing lots of reading I decided that I wanted to try Slimming World.

The plan was to start as soon as I got back from holiday in mid June, but it never happened, I have spent the time between then and now putting off going. Last night I decided today would be THE day that I go to group and sign up.

I went! I have all my books, I have a lovely group leader called Julia and the other people who attend all seem lovely. I have the option of the 5pm group or the 7pm group so I can juggle the children.

I have had my initial weigh in which I am going to keep private for now but once the weight starts to come off I am hoping to be brave enough to share my start weight. I have lots of food ideas thanks to lots of blog reading and the Slimming World website.

So tomorrow morning is the first day of my Slimming World journey, the journey to what I hope will be a slimmer and healthier me.

I plan to blog my weekly weigh in and share some of my meals, so see you next week and fingers crossed for a good first week.

  2. Good luck with your journey - I have managed to loose 2½ stone so far! I find it fairly easy and I cook the same for my family, just with some slight adjustments. I like the fact that you can eat so much, I'm very often seen in the evening with a big bowl of fruit salad and a fork!
