Slimming World Journey: Month One

I don’t think I have ever managed to stick to a diet for a whole month before

Last month you might have read that I joined a local Slimming World Group

I’m know I’m not meant to call it a diet, its a lifestyle change, but to me it is still a diet

It has been 4 whole weeks ‘on plan’ and my results have astounded me

Slimming World was something I have known about, and had seen lots of success stories from

This year I decided that I would join

I knew I had to go to the group to keep me on track, rather than go it alone online

Weekly Routine

Each week I turn up at my local group, there seems to be new members joining every week

Lots of the same faces, and the process seems to be the same each time as well

We start group by each being weighed, this is completely private and no one else can see your weight

Your loss or gain is written down in your book, and then you take a seat in the area for Image Therapy

Image Therapy isn’t compulsory and you are under no obligation to stay to it, but personally I feel it helps

We sit and discuss how much has been lost, and awards are given to members who have reached specific milestones

Every half a stone lost is awarded with a certificate and a sticker

New food ideas or meals people have created or have enjoyed is discussed, to help give each other food-spiration 

You can just sit there and listen or join in as much as you feel you want to

My Results

In 4 weeks I have lost 22lbs, yes twenty two pounds by purely sticking to the plan

That is 3 certificates and stickers, I get very excited about getting an award

I have not starved by any means, actually I feel like I have eaten more than I usually would in a week

The difference being what food I am eating

I am not one who likes ready meals, so I do cook everything pretty much from scratch

Which has rekindled my love for cooking more which I have enjoyed

The plan changes how you prepare and cook your food

So what you end up eating is a lot better for your body, and the fuel your body needs

Ultimately you loss body fat

My fourth week I also won Slimmer of the week

I also won Slimmer of the month

The Future

I am feeling very optimistic about the coming months and trying to loose weight

If the past 4 weeks have taught me anything it would be, trust the plan, it works!

If you are interested in seeing any of the types of meals I am eating, you can follow my Instagram account which I have set up purely for Slimming World

Now on to my second month feeling very positive and motivated

    That’s a brilliant result, well done! I’m following SW too, at home, but I don’t weigh myself (well not until I’m slimmer anyway) as finding out my weight will deflate me and cause me to eat as would only gaining or losing a small amount but my clothes are definitely looser so I know I’m going in the right direction overall and that helps keep me on track!
    Being excited about what I’m going to eat also helps keep me on track, I’m in a couple of SW Facebook groups plus I get emails from a couple of SW friendly food bloggers so I browse through the photos and make a list of what dishes excite me and then they’re my menu for the next week or so. I’m off to see your new Instagram page to see what you’ve been having now!

      Thank you, i am really pleased with my progress. I would love to know what Facebook groups you are in so I can join and get more food inspiration. I find seeing the types of meals others eat really helpful too. Good luck with your journey, I find going to the group helps keep you motivated as you are amongst like minded people. I was nervous at first but it really is a good way to keep motivated x

    well done on your weight loss. I need to lose some weight, but I’m not sure about joining a group as I don’t know if I would be motivated more or put off by it.

    Amazing progress! I have just hit my target weight – it took me a year to lose 3.5 stone but I always have a takeaway and a bottle of wine on a weekend haha it hardly feels like a diet does it!
