Slimming world (again!)

After fighting for years to be referred to Addenbrookes for gastric bypass surgery and finally getting funding for their clinic I made the extremely hard decision that it was not what was best for me and decided to join Slimming World for the last time and to do it myself without surgery.

It was not a decision I made easily but I do believe it will be whats best even if it is  very slow and long journey, I know I  can do it!

Its now week 3! my first week I lost 2.5lbs and I do admit I was a little disappointed but it is so hard going from other 'diets' that use ketosis as a weight loss tool and losing 8-10lbs in the first week I should mention that whenever I have done that i have never maintained the loss)

the second week I lost another 2.5lbs, again it felt slow but I've been eating loads so its great to know that the pounds I had lost was proper fat - I also won Slimmer of the Week, it was a big surprise and put a smile on my face!

This week i lost 2lbs earning me my half stone award which I am happy with! though this week is a bit of a challenge food wise so I may not lose next week but as long as I maintain I will be happy :)

All in all I'm loving Slimming world, I'm enjoying the food and the support from my new friends in group is fantastic :)


  1. What a brave decision! You can do it!x
