My Slimming World Journey

Last year I joined Slimming world. I've previously, tried Weight Watchers (where I gained weight...) but after a while of losing my mojo I took the plunge.

My first class
I'll admit walking into a room full of strangers and the unknown is scary. But when you walk in they just know your a newbie and straight away you're greeted and told where to go and what to do. Which is great! Saves the awkward having to find someone and ask.

My first week
I lost 4lbs! I was amazed! How can I eat pasta and potatoe wedges and lose 4lbs in one week! ONE WEEK. So on this high I continued.

The bump in the road.
I took 2-3 weeks off over Christmas last year and that's where it slowed down. When I went back I'd gained, lost my mojo and kept having half or no loss which is really disheartening.

Turning point
I was bouncing around a few classes trying to find the one for me as my shifts changed. But then I sent a message to my old group leader explaining my loss of mojo since leaving her group and she said to come along late to her class and I could weigh at the end. Brilliant! That group for me is so motivating and helpful, really really supportive and just works for me best.

Where am I now?
Granted, I'm a little naughty. I like a few treats so I don't have the big losses anymore but I'm happy with losing every week even when it's a small loss it's all adding up. Now I've lost 1st 11lbs in total and yes, still eat a lot of pasta. I was nominated for woman of the year which was really nice. Now I'm hoping to get to 2 stone really soon.

Where next?
I'm not done. I do want to crank it up now that I've lost that much and dropping jean sizes (which feels like weekly), I'd like to up my gym-game more. I found a new snazzy gym which I love so would like to get my fitness up and really hit my targets.

My little remember me advice
Every week is a new week. No matter how naughty or bad you were last week you have a clean slate to work harder and get a good loss for the following week. And it's only 7 days! Instead of restricting yourself like crazy, I normally say to myself, if I have a good loss I'll have this (pizza) but by the time weigh day comes, I don't really want that pizza anymore or to undo my work.

Have you tried Slimming World? If so share some tips!
