Slimming World

Everyone is different and what works for one doesn’t always work for another. Slimming World Target Award However Slimming World has been my saviour.  Many years ago I did lose weight using the old red and green system but Extra Easy has been the easiest diet I have ever done.  In fact it is not a diet anymore.  It is purely the way I now eat.

I have reached my personal target and here is my Certificate of Success.

With Slimming World no food is a banned food and it works by limiting yourself to a certain amount of syn points per day while you are losing weight.   This means that whatever your dietary restrictions are you can follow the Slimming World diet as there are always substitutes that you can eat.  Their website is amazing with new recipes and advice being added all the time.

I initially lost seven pounds before I even joined a Slimming World group as I bought their magazine and did it via their online membership.  When I decided it would be more motivating to go to a group and mix with others they swapped my online membership over to the group I chose and the support that I obtained from the consultant and other members was invaluable.  Now having reached target I still go almost every week as I have made so many friends there and enjoy our chats and the tips that we pass on to one another.

To give you a rough idea of the type of food I have been eating here are just a few photos of my evening meals.  I definitely don’t go for small portions!
